主日講道 – 常年期第二十五主日 (2010年9月19日)

聖佳年 (雅納略) 主教殉道
恭讀聖路加福音 16:1-13
那時候,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。」
—基督的福音。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 16:1-13

1 He also said to the disciples, “There was a rich man who had a steward, and charges were brought to him that this man was wasting his goods. 2 And he called him and said to him, `What is this that I hear about you? Turn in the account of your stewardship, for you can no longer be steward.’ 3 And the steward said to himself, `What shall I do, since my master is taking the stewardship away from me? I am not strong enough to dig, and I am ashamed to beg. 4 I have decided what to do, so that people may receive me into their houses when I am put out of the stewardship.’ 5 So, summoning his master’s debtors one by one, he said to the first, `How much do you owe my master?’ 6 He said, `A hundred measures of oil.’ And he said to him, `Take your bill, and sit down quickly and write fifty.’ 7 Then he said to another, `And how much do you owe?’ He said, `A hundred measures of wheat.’ He said to him, `Take your bill, and write eighty.’ 8 The master commended the dishonest steward for his shrewdness; for the sons of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own generation than the sons of light. 9 And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of unrighteous mammon, so that when it fails they may receive you into the eternal habitations. 10 “He who is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much; and he who is dishonest in a very little is dishonest also in much. 11 If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will entrust to you the true riches? 12 And if you have not been faithful in that which is another’s, who will give you that which is your own? 13 No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

路8:16-18  (其他經文──箴3:27-34   詠15)
耶穌對群眾說:「沒有人點上燈,用器皿遮蓋住,或放在床底下的,而是放在燈台上,為叫進來的人看見光明;因為沒有隱藏的事,不被顯露的;沒有秘密的事,不被知道而公開出來的。所以,你們應當留心要怎樣聽:因為凡有的,還要給他:凡沒有的,連他自以為有的,也要從他奪去。」

默 想

  • 黑暗是驅除不去的,如果光明沒有到來。
  • 人人的內心都有「暗格」,那裡存在陰暗面,連那人自己也不知道,也不覺察。
  • 耶穌是光,祂不單降生人間,祂也臨在我們各人心中,祂渴望與我們一起,發現我們心中的「暗格」,面對那個陰暗面的自己,也引導我們接受那個自己。
  • 一天,當那「暗格」被照進光明,那人也等於擁有基督,這份愛,這份自由,是沒有人能從他處奪去的。
  • 我們一旦有這光,還要更有這光明,甚至煥然一新,有力地照亮別人。
