讀經一 亞8:4-7   詠113   讀經二 弟前2:1-7
主日福音  路16:1-13

耶穌對門徒說:「曾有一個富翁,他有一個管家。有人在主人前,告發這管家,指他揮霍了主人的財物。主人便把管家叫來,向他說:我怎麼聽說你有這樣的事?把你管理家務的賬目,交出來,因為你不能再作管家了。「那管家自言自語說:主人要撤去我管家的職務,我可做什麼呢?掘地吧,我沒有氣力;討飯吧,我又害羞。我知道我要做什麼,好叫人們,在我被撤去管家職務之後,收留我在他們家中。「於是,他把主人的債戶一一叫來。給第一個說:你欠我主人多少?那人說:一百桶油。管家向他說:拿你的賬單,坐下,快寫作五十。隨後,又給另一個說:你欠多少?那人說:一百石麥子。管家向他說:拿你的賬單,寫作八十。「主人於是稱讚這個不義的管家,辦事精明。這些今世之子,應付自己的世代,比光明之子,更是精明。「我告訴你們:要用不義的錢財,交結朋友,為在你們匱乏的時候,好叫他們收留你們到永遠的帳幕裡。「在小事上忠信的,在大事上也忠信;在小事上不義的,在大事上也不義。那麼,如果你們在不義的錢財上,不忠信,誰還把真實的錢財,委託給你們呢?如果你們在別人的財物上,不忠信,誰還把屬於你們的,交給你們呢?「沒有一個家僕,能事奉兩個主人。他或是要恨這一個,而愛那一個,或是要依附這一個,而輕忽那一個。你們不能事奉天主,而又事奉錢財。」

默 想

  • 昨天默想中提及,我們要好好地「經營」自己的心,每一刻,每一步,從小事開始,專心至志,事奉一個主人。
  • 留意每一步每一刻,也享受那時那刻,儼如跳舞般,一步又一步,學習面對自己,認識自己,也接受自己。
  • 我們都容易跌進事奉兩個主人,或更多主人的陷阱,被主人們牽著走。
  • 當在事奉多於一個主人的時候,我們的心容易變得亂。見過忙碌卻不混亂的人,因為他們練就一顆活於當下的心,清楚知道自己為何而活!他的生命有個重心,不致亂了陣腳。
  • 耶穌的叮囑與教訓,其實想我們學會做一個簡單的人,懷著赤子之心專注在祂內的人。
  • 專注在祂內,不表示我們只會終日祈禱、讀經、靈修;絕不,而是心之定向,心之所安的重心在哪裡?從服務中、關懷中、事務中,同時也是專注在祂內。

神父講道 – 常年期第二十四週 (週六) (2010年9月18日)

恭讀聖路加福音 8:4-15
那時,有大夥群眾聚集了來,並有從各城來到耶穌跟前的。耶穌就用比喻說:「有一個撒種子的,出去撒種子,他撒的時候,有的落在路旁,就被踐踏了,並有天上的飛鳥把它吃了。有的落在石頭上,一長起來,就乾枯了,因為沒有濕氣。有的落在荊棘中,荊棘同它一起長起來,把它窒息了。又有的落在好地裏,長起來,結了百倍的果實。」他說完這些話,就高呼說:「有耳聽的,就聽吧!」
耶穌的門徒問他這比喻有什麼意思。他說:「天主國的奧秘,是給你們知道的;對其餘的人,就用比喻,使那看的,卻看不見;聽的,卻聽不懂。這比喻的意思是:種子是天主的話。那些在路旁的,是指那些人聽了,隨後就有魔鬼來到,從他們心中把天主的話奪去,使他們不至信從而得救。那些在石頭上的,是指那些人,他們聽的時候,高興地接受天主的話,但這些人沒有根,暫時相信,一到試探的時候,就退避了。那落在荊棘中的,是指那些聽了的人,還在中途就被掛慮、錢財及生活的逸樂所蒙蔽,沒有結出成熟的果實。那在好地裏的,是指那些以善良和誠實的心傾聽的人,他們把天主的話保存起來,以堅忍結出果實。」
—基督的福音。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 8:4-15

4 And when a great crowd came together and people from town after town came to him, he said in a parable: 5 “A sower went out to sow his seed; and as he sowed, some fell along the path, and was trodden under foot, and the birds of the air devoured it. 6 And some fell on the rock; and as it grew up, it withered away, because it had no moisture. 7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns grew with it and choked it. 8 And some fell into good soil and grew, and yielded a hundredfold.” As he said this, he called out, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” 9 And when his disciples asked him what this parable meant, 10 he said, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of God; but for others they are in parables, so that seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand. 11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. 12 The ones along the path are those who have heard; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, that they may not believe and be saved. 13 And the ones on the rock are those who, when they hear the word, receive it with joy; but these have no root, they believe for a while and in time of temptation fall away. 14 And as for what fell among the thorns, they are those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by the cares and riches and pleasures of life, and their fruit does not mature.
—The Gospel of the Lord.
