神父講道 – 常年期第十九週 (週一) (2010年8月9日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 17:22-27
當耶穌同門徒在加里肋亞周遊時,耶穌對他們說:「人子將被交於人們手中。他們要殺害他,第三天他必要復活。」門徒就非常憂鬱。
他們來到葛法翁時,收殿稅的人來對伯多祿跟前說:「你們的師傅不納殿稅嗎?」伯多祿說:「當然納稅。」他一進到屋裏,耶穌就先對他說:「西滿!你以為怎樣?地上的君王向誰徵收關稅或丁稅呢?向自己的兒子,或是向外人?」伯多祿說:「向外人。」耶穌對他說:「所以兒子是免稅的了。但是,為避免冒犯他們,你往海邊去垂釣,拿釣上來的第一條魚,開了它的口,就會找到一塊「斯塔特」。拿去交給他們,當作我和你的殿稅。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 17:22-27

22 As they were gathering in Galilee, Jesus said to them, “The Son of man is to be delivered into the hands of men, 23 and they will kill him, and he will be raised on the third day.” And they were greatly distressed. 24 When they came to Caper’na-um, the collectors of the half-shekel tax went up to Peter and said, “Does not your teacher pay the tax?” 25 He said, “Yes.” And when he came home, Jesus spoke to him first, saying, “What do you think, Simon? From whom do kings of the earth take toll or tribute? From their sons or from others?” 26 And when he said, “From others,” Jesus said to him, “Then the sons are free. 27 However, not to give offense to them, go to the sea and cast a hook, and take the first fish that comes up, and when you open its mouth you will find a shekel; take that and give it to them for me and for yourself.”

瑪17:22-27 (其他經文──則1:2-5,24-28    詠148)
當耶穌同門徒在加里肋亞周遊時,耶穌對他們說:「人子將被交於人們手中。他們要殺害他,第三天他必要復活。」門徒就非常憂鬱。他們來到葛法翁時,收殿稅的人來對伯多祿跟前說:「你們的師傅不納殿稅嗎?」伯多祿說:「當然納稅。」他一進到屋裡,耶穌就先對他說:「西滿!你以為怎樣?地上的君王向誰徵收關稅或丁稅呢?向自己的兒子,或是向外人?」伯多祿說:「向外人。」耶穌對他說:「所以兒子是免稅的了。但是,為避免冒犯他們,你往海邊去垂釣,拿釣上來的第一條魚,開了它的口,就會找到一塊『斯塔特』。拿去交給他們,當作我和你的殿稅。」

默 想

  • 不是第一次,耶穌曾清楚告知門徒他將會遭到殺害,三天後將會復活。
  • 試想,門徒們只聽到訊息的話語,那其時,卻不大明白所以然來。這訊息包含兩個不可思議的訊息:1) 師傅將遭殺害 2) 死後能復活。一個比一個訊息難以令人置信。
  • 他們的憂鬱,很可能包括很大程度的不明白、不想相信、難以入信。
  • 門徒們在那時,根本等於收不到師傅的訊息。
  • 原來,人要真正明白一樣關乎生命的真像或道理,一點都不容易。必須通過經驗,往往是痛苦的經驗。一如門徒們,師傅被捕後,他們鳥獸散,不知道發生什麼事情。
  • 及至往後,他們的信仰被真正地建立,才恍然大悟,師傅要傳遞的真正訊息。
  • 生命正像此,也是如此!

主日講道 – 常年期第十九主日 (2010年8月8日)

恭讀聖路加福音 12:32-48
那時候,耶穌對門徒說:「你們小小的羊群,不要害怕!因為你們的父,喜歡把天國賜給你們。「要變賣你們所有的,來施捨,為你們自己準備不朽的錢囊,在天上準備取用不盡的寶藏;在那裡,盜賊不能走近,蠹蟲也不能損壞,因為你們的寶藏在那裡,你們的心,也必在那裡。「你們要束上腰,點著燈;應當如同僕人,等候自己的主人,由婚宴回來,為的是主人來到,一敲門,就立刻給他開門。主人來到時,所遇見醒寤著的那些僕人,是有福的。我實在告訴你們:主人要束上腰,請他們入席,自己親自伺候他們。主人二更來也罷,三更來也罷,他所遇見醒寤著的僕人,是有福的。「你們應該明白這一點:如果家主知道盜賊何時要來,【他必要醒寤,】決不容許自己的房屋被挖穿。你們也應當準備,因為在你們料想不到的時辰,人子就來了。」伯多祿說:「主,你講這個比喻,是為我們呢,還是為眾人?」主說:「究竟誰是忠信及精明的管家?不是那受主人委派,管理自己的家僕,按時分配食糧的人嗎?主人回來時,看見他如此行事,那僕人才是有福的。我實在告訴你們:主人必要委派他,管理自己的一切財產。如果那個僕人心裡說:我的主人必會遲來;他便開始拷打僕婢,也吃也喝也醉酒。在他料想不到的日子,不知覺的時刻,那僕人的主人就會來到,必要剷除他,使他與不信的人,遭受同樣的命運。「那知道主人的旨意,而偏偏不作準備,或竟然不奉行他旨意的僕人,必然要多受拷打;那不知道,而做了該受拷打之事的,要少受拷打。給誰的多,向誰要的也多;交託誰的多,向誰索取的也格外多。」
—基督的福音。

(19th Sunday in Ordinary Time)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 12:32-48

32 “Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. 33 Sell your possessions, and give alms; provide yourselves with purses that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. 34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

35 “Let your loins be girded and your lamps burning, 36 and be like men who are waiting for their master to come home from the marriage feast, so that they may open to him at once when he comes and knocks. 37 Blessed are those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes; truly, I say to you, he will gird himself and have them sit at table, and he will come and serve them. 38 If he comes in the second watch, or in the third, and finds them so, blessed are those servants! 39 But know this, that if the householder had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have left his house to be broken into. 40 You also must be ready; for the Son of man is coming at an unexpected hour.”

41 Peter said, “Lord, are you telling this parable for us or for all?” 42 And the Lord said, “Who then is the faithful and wise steward, whom his master will set over his household, to give them their portion of food at the proper time? 43 Blessed is that servant whom his master when he comes will find so doing. 44 Truly, I say to you, he will set him over all his possessions. 45 But if that servant says to himself, `My master is delayed in coming,’ and begins to beat the menservants and the maidservants, and to eat and drink and get drunk, 46 the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know, and will punish him, and put him with the unfaithful. 47 And that servant who knew his master’s will, but did not make ready or act according to his will, shall receive a severe beating. 48 But he who did not know, and did what deserved a beating, shall receive a light beating. Every one to whom much is given, of him will much be required; and of him to whom men commit much they will demand the more.

—The Gospel of the Lord.
