路9:46-50 (其他經文──約1:6-22   詠17)
門徒間開始爭辯誰是他們中最大的。耶穌看透了他們的心思,就領來一個小孩子,叫他立在自己身邊,對他們說:「誰若為了我的名字收留這個小孩子,就是收留我;誰若收留我,就是收留那派遣我來的;因為在你們眾人中最小的,這人才是最大的。」若望說:「老師!我們曾看見一個人,因你的名字驅魔,就禁止了他,因為他不與我們同夥。」耶穌卻向他說:「不要禁止!因為誰不反對你們,就是傾向你們。」

默 想

  • 什麼是最大?什麼是最小?人人心底都想做最大,不願被人稱為 (貶抑) 作最小。
  • 耶穌出生時,這世界似乎不怎樣「收留」祂;我們的心有時真的弱得收留不了天主,我們欠缺接待祂的心。
  • 一顆願意小孩子的心,是一顆謙遜的心,一份虛懷若谷的心。
  • 接待上主,也需要一顆勇敢的心,因為上主的光照進我們的心,把我們心內的黑暗也驅散,只是我們的心十分脆弱,可能一下子承受不了上主的光芒,寧願留在黑暗中。
  • 捨棄作最大,意味棄絕權勢;成為最小,可更接近天主。

默主哥耶聖母訊息(2010年9月25日)

Message of 25 September 2010

“ Dear children! Today I am with you and bless you all with my motherly blessing of peace, and I urge you to live your life of faith even more, because you are still weak and are not humble. I urge you, little children, to speak less and to work more on your personal conversion so that your witness may be fruitful. And may your life be unceasing prayer. Thank you for having responded to my call. ”
親愛的孩子們:今天我和你們在一起;我以母親和平的祝福祝福你們。
我懇切期望你們更能生活出有信德的生命。你們還是軟弱的、不夠謙遜的。
在你們的個人皈依上少說話、多行動罷!好能結出更多的果實。
讓你們的生命成為恆常的祈禱 。多謝你們回應我的召叫。
聖母在2010年9月25日給Marija 的訊息

主日講道 – 常年期第二十六主日 (2010年9月26日)

聖高邁(葛斯默)及聖達勉(達彌盎)殉道
恭讀聖路加福音 16:19-31
那時候,耶穌對法利塞人說:「有一個富翁,身穿紫紅袍及細麻衣,天天奢華宴樂。另有一個乞丐,名叫拉匝祿,滿身瘡痍,躺臥在富翁的大門前。拉匝祿指望得到從富翁桌上掉下的碎屑充飢,但只有狗來舔他的瘡痍。那乞丐死了,天使把他送到亞巴郎的懷抱裡。那個富翁也死了,被人埋葬了。「那富翁在陰間,痛苦地舉目一望,遠遠看見亞巴郎,及在他懷中的拉匝祿,便喊叫說:父親亞巴郎!可憐我吧!請打發拉匝祿,用他的指尖,蘸點水,來涼潤我的舌頭,因為我在這火燄中,非常痛苦。「亞巴郎說:孩子,你應記得,你活著的時候,已享盡了你的福,而拉匝祿同樣也受盡了苦。現在,他在這裡受安慰,而你應受苦了。除此之外,在我們與你們之間,隔著一個巨大的深淵,就算有人願意,從這邊去到你們那邊,也不可能,從那邊來到我們這邊,也不可能。「那富翁說:父親!那麼,就請你打發拉匝祿到我家去,因為我有五個兄弟,叫拉匝祿警告他們,免得他們也來到這痛苦的地方。「亞巴郎說:他們自有梅瑟及先知,讓他們聽從好了。「那富翁說:不,父親亞巴郎!倘若有人從死者中,到他們那裡,他們必會悔改。「亞巴郎給他說:如果他們不聽從梅瑟及先知,縱使有人從死者中復活,他們也不會信服。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 16:19-31

19 “There was a rich man, who was clothed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day. 20 And at his gate lay a poor man named Laz’arus, full of sores, 21 who desired to be fed with what fell from the rich man’s table; moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 The poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried; 23 and in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes, and saw Abraham far off and Laz’arus in his bosom. 24 And he called out, `Father Abraham, have mercy upon me, and send Laz’arus to dip the end of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am in anguish in this flame.’ 25 But Abraham said, `Son, remember that you in your lifetime received your good things, and Laz’arus in like manner evil things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in anguish. 26 And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, in order that those who would pass from here to you may not be able, and none may cross from there to us.’ 27 And he said, `Then I beg you, father, to send him to my father’s house, 28 for I have five brothers, so that he may warn them, lest they also come into this place of torment.’ 29 But Abraham said, `They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.’ 30 And he said, `No, father Abraham; but if some one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ 31 He said to him, `If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be convinced if some one should rise from the dead.'”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

讀經一 亞6:1, 4-7  詠146   讀經二 弟前6:11-16
主日福音  路16:19-31

耶穌對法利塞人說:
「有一個富翁,身穿紫紅袍及細麻衣,天天奢華宴樂。另有一個乞丐,名叫拉匝祿,滿身瘡痍,躺臥在富翁的大門前。拉匝祿指望得到從富翁桌上掉下的碎屑充飢,但只有狗來舔他的瘡痍。那乞丐死了,天使把他送到亞巴郎的懷抱裡。那個富翁也死了,被人埋葬了。
「那富翁在陰間,痛苦地舉目一望,遠遠看見亞巴郎,及在他懷中的拉匝祿,便喊叫說:父親亞巴郎!可憐我吧!請打發拉匝祿,用他的指尖,蘸點水,來涼潤我的舌頭,因為我在這火燄中,非常痛苦。
「亞巴郎說:孩子,你應記得,你活著的時候,已享盡了你的福,而拉匝祿同樣也受盡了苦。現在,他在這裡受安慰,而你應受苦了。除此之外,在我們與你們之間,隔著一個巨大的深淵,就算有人願意,從這邊去到你們那邊,也不可能,從那邊來到我們這邊,也不可能。
「那富翁說:父親!那麼,就請你打發拉匝祿到我家去,因為我有五個兄弟,叫拉匝祿警告他們,免得他們也來到這痛苦的地方。
「亞巴郎說:他們自有梅瑟及先知,讓他們聽從好了。
「那富翁說:不,父親亞巴郎!倘若有人從死者中,到他們那裡,他們必會悔改。
「亞巴郎給他說:如果他們不聽從梅瑟及先知,縱使有人從死者中復活,他們也不會信服。」

默 想

  • 因有人從死者中到他們那裡,而悔改,那悔改不真實,也不深刻;因聽從天主的話而悔改,才是真正的悔改,也包含愛。
  • 亞巴郎最後的話,點出了重要訊息。信仰的基礎是驗證到、看到?那是信嗎?沒有看到而相信,才是信吧。
  • 信與靠也彼此連結,也有敬畏之意。天主不是給我們測試的,天主不是我們的工具。
  • 只是我們的下意識都將天主當工具,若不如我意,就埋怨祂。
  • 我們也少學會愛祂,以致我們尚未學會聽從祂的話,將自己完全交託予祂。

Life Love Light – The Beatification of Chiara Luce Badano September 25, 2010

Chiara Luce Badano, an 18-year-old-girl, will be beatified in Rome, Italy, on Saturday, Sept. 25th, 2010 at the Shrine of Our Lady of Divine Love. We wanted to share with you our joy, and invite you to join in the celebration. The beatification will be broadcast live at www.focolare.org, also on Salt & Light TV (see www.saltandlighttv.org for time and channels).

A Saint of Our Times
She is called “a saint of our times” by the local bishop in Italy who knew her personally. He sees this 18-year-old, who died after a three-year struggle with bone cancer, as a guiding light (“Luce”) especially for young people. Asked if she talked about spirituality with her high school friends, she said, “Talking about God doesn’t count for much.  I have to give Him.”

Chiara Luce’s recognized miracle was the healing of a little boy dying from meningitis last year. You can read her story in the book “Chiara Luce: A Life Lived to the Full,” by Michele Zanzucchi.

Saturday, Sept. 25 at 4PM (10 AM EDT):
Solemn Mass of Beatification of Chiara Badano.

Saturday, Sept 25 at 9 PM (3 PM EDT):
Youth Celebration: “Chiara Luce: life, love, light” (see program)

“Young people, don’t be afraid to become saints.” – John Paul II

“One day she met God as Love, and she spent her life believing in this divine adventure…”
– Chiara Lubich

神父講道 – 常年期第二十五週 (週五) (2010年9月24日)

恭讀聖路加福音 9:18-22
有一天,耶穌獨自祈禱,門徒同他在一起。他問他們說:「眾人說我是誰?」他們回答說:「有人說是洗者若翰;有人卻說是厄里亞;還有人說是古時的一位先知復活了。」他問他們說:「但你們說我是誰呢?」伯多祿回答說:「天主的受傅者。」但耶穌嚴厲囑咐他們,不要把這事告訴人,說:「人子必須受許多苦,被長老、司祭長和經師們棄絕,並且要被殺;但第三天必要復活。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 9:18-22

18 Now it happened that as he was praying alone the disciples were with him; and he asked them, “Who do the people say that I am?” 19 And they answered, “John the Baptist; but others say, Eli’jah; and others, that one of the old prophets has risen.” 20 And he said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” And Peter answered, “The Christ of God.” 21 But he charged and commanded them to tell this to no one, 22 saying, “The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised.”

路9:43-45  (其他經文──訓11:9-12:8   詠90)
當眾人驚奇耶穌所作的一切時,他向自己的門徒說:「你們應謹記這些話:人子將要被交於人的手中。」但他們不明瞭這話,這話為他們還是蒙蔽著,他們仍不能了解;他們又怕問他這話的意思。

默 想

  • 師傅要被交付在人手中,受很多苦?這話何解?
  • 門徒們怎能明白?又怎能接受?他們被蒙蔽著。
  • 信仰的進路必須經過這類過程,灰暗不明,摸索著,不解地卻要相信。
  • 及至耶穌被捕、受審、受判刑、受苦至死,復活後,門徒們才恍然大悟,記起師傅曾說的,他曾強調的。
  • 門徒的信仰終於被建立了。他們逾越了,蒙蔽的雲霧散了,也認得耶穌究竟是誰了。
  • 我們的信仰都在不同階段的雲霧中,需要獲得清晰,都需要經歷我們自己的逾越,忍受過度逾越的苦。
