神父講道 – 常年期第三十一週 (週六) (2010年11月6日)

恭讀聖路加福音 16:9-15
那時候,耶穌對門徒說:「你們要用不義的錢財結交朋友,為在你們匱乏的時候,好叫他們收留你們到永遠的帳幕裏。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的: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。」愛財的法利塞人聽了這一切話,便嗤笑耶穌。耶穌向他們說:「你們在人前自充義人,但是天主知道你們的心,因為在人前是崇高的事,在天主前卻是可憎的。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 16:9-15

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.” 14 The Pharisees, who were lovers of money, heard all this, and they scoffed at him. 15 But he said to them, “You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts; for what is exalted among men is an abomination in the sight of God.

路16:9-15  (其他經文──斐4:10-19   詠112)
耶穌對門徒說:「你們要用不義的錢財結交朋友,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的: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。」愛財的法利塞人聽了這一切話,便嗤笑耶穌。耶穌向他們說:「你們在人前自充義人,但是天主知道你們的心,因為在人前是崇高的事,在天主前卻是可憎的。」

默 想

  • 我們不能事奉天主又事奉錢財,並不是說我們要把所有的財物捐出,做一個清貧的人。其實我們也可以擁有金錢。
  • 但重點是,金錢會否成為障礙呢?我的心是否充塞著金錢的意念呢?
  • 做一個很小的實驗,便可以知道結果。就是我們把這個月的薪金的十分一捐出給有需要的人,例如無國界醫生、仁愛會、明愛等等。
  • 我們做這行動,是為天主而做。問一問自己,有何感覺?若覺得肉痛,真值得恭喜,因為最低限度我們願意去試,否則,肉痛的機會也沒有。自然地,也沒有嘗試為天主而做一些事了。

神父講道 – 常年期第三十一週 耶穌聖心彌撒 (週五) (2010年11月5日)

恭讀聖路加福音 16:1-8
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揮霍了主人的財物。主人便把他叫來,向他說:我怎麼聽說你有這樣的事呢?把你管理家務的帳目交出來,因為你不能再作管家了。那管家自言自語道:主人要撤去我管家的職務,我可做什麼呢?掘地罷,我沒有氣力;討飯罷,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,對第一個說:你欠我主人多少?那人說:一百桶油。管家向他說:拿你的帳單,坐下快寫作五十。隨後,又對另一個說:你欠多少?那人說:一百石麥子。管家向他說:拿你的帳單,寫作八十。主人遂稱讚這個不義的管家,辦事精明:這些世俗之子應付世俗的事務,比光明之子更為精明。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 16:1-8

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.
