神父講道 – 常年期第二十週 (週一) (2010年8月16日)

匈牙利.聖德範(斯德望國王)
恭讀聖瑪竇福音 19:16-22
有一個人來到耶穌跟前說:「師傅!我該行什麼『善』,為得永生?」耶穌對他說:「你為什麼問我關於『善』?善的只有一個。如果你願意進入生命,就該遵守誡命。」他對耶穌說:「什麼誡命?」耶穌說:「就是:不可殺人,不可奸淫,不可偷盜,不可作假見證;應孝敬父母,應愛你的近人,如愛你自己。」那少年人對耶穌說:「這一切我都遵守了,還缺少什麼?」耶穌對他說:「你若願意是成全的,去,變賣你所有的,施捨給窮人,你必有寶藏在天上;然後來跟隨我。」少年人一聽這話,就憂悶的走了,因為他擁有許多產業。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 19:16-22

16 And behold, one came up to him, saying, “Teacher, what good deed must I do, to have eternal life?” 17 And he said to him, “Why do you ask me about what is good? One there is who is good. If you would enter life, keep the commandments.” 18 He said to him, “Which?” And Jesus said, “You shall not kill, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness, 19 Honor your father and mother, and, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 20 The young man said to him, “All these I have observed; what do I still lack?” 21 Jesus said to him, “If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” 22 When the young man heard this he went away sorrowful; for he had great possessions.

主日講道 – 聖母升天 (節日) (2010年8月15日)

聖母升天 (節日)
恭讀聖路加福音 1:39-56
瑪利亞就在那幾日起身,急速往山區去,到了猶大的一座城。她進入匝加利亞的家,就向依撒伯爾請安。依撒伯爾一聽到瑪利亞請安,胎兒就在她腹中歡躍。依撒伯爾於是充滿了聖神,高聲說:「在女人中,妳是蒙祝福的,妳的胎兒,也是蒙祝福的。我主的母親,駕臨我這裡,這是我那裡得來的呢?看,妳請安的聲音,一入我耳,胎兒就在我腹中,歡喜踴躍。那信了由上主傳於她的話,必要完成的,是有福的。」瑪利亞於是說:「我的靈魂頌揚上主,我的心神歡躍於天主,我的救主,因為祂垂顧了祂婢女的卑微,今後萬世萬代都要稱我有福;因全能者在我身上,行了大事,祂的名字是聖的,祂的仁慈世世代代於無窮世,賜與敬畏祂的人。「祂伸出了手臂,施展大能,驅散那些心高氣傲的人。祂從高座上,推下權勢者,卻舉揚了卑微貧困的人。祂曾使飢餓者,飽饗美物,反使那富有者,空手而去。「祂曾回憶起自己的仁慈,扶助了祂的僕人以色列,正如祂向我們祖先所說過的恩許,施恩於亞巴郎和他的子孫,直到永遠。」瑪利亞同依撒伯爾,住了三個月左右,就回家去了。

(Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 1:39-56

39 In those days Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country, to a city of Judah, 40 and she entered the house of Zechari’ah and greeted Elizabeth. 41 And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit 42 and she exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! 43 And why is this granted me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 For behold, when the voice of your greeting came to my ears, the babe in my womb leaped for joy. 45 And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfilment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.” 46 And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord, 47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, 48 for he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden. For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed; 49 for he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name. 50 And his mercy is on those who fear him from generation to generation. 51 He has shown strength with his arm, he has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts, 52 he has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted those of low degree; 53 he has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent empty away. 54 He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy, 55 as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his posterity for ever.” 56 And Mary remained with her about three months, and returned to her home.

瑪19:16-22 (其他經文──則24:15-24    詠:申32:18-21)
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

  • 擁有越多,捨棄就更困難。少年人不願意捨棄的,只是他的產業嗎?
  • 少年人不願意捨棄的,是產業帶給他的安全感、成就感,是疑似的實在感。
  • 那即是他可以掌控的能力,而「遵守誡命」也被納入他的成就。
  • 說到底,他不能忍受自我虛空 (empty) 的結果,那裡滿有人感到的不安全感。
  • 少年人想不到,唯有藉著進入真正的虛空,上主正在那裡,唯有上主才可填補那虛空。
  • 這種自我虛空,不是消極的做法,也即是將自己完全的交託。
