神父講道 – 聖伯爾都亞及聖斐尼絲 (殉道) (紀念) (週一) (2011年3月7日)

聖伯爾都亞及聖斐尼絲 (殉道) (紀念)
恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 12:1-12
那時候,耶穌開始用比喻對司祭長、經師和長老們說:「有一個人培植了一個葡萄園,周圍圍上了籬笆,掘了一個榨酒池,築了一座守望台,把它租給園戶,就離開了本國。到了時節,他便打發一個僕人到園戶那裏,向園戶收取園中的果實;園戶卻抓住他,打了他,放他空手回去。主人又打發別的一個僕人到他們那裏去;他們打傷了他的頭,並且凌辱了他。主人又打發另一個,他們把他殺了;後又打發好些僕人去:有的他們打了,有的他們殺了。主人還有一個,即他的愛子;最後就打發他到他們那裏去,說:他們必會敬重我的兒子。那些園戶卻彼此說:這是繼承人,來!我們殺掉他,將來產業就歸我們了。於是,抓住他殺了,把他拋在葡萄園外。那麼,葡萄園的主人要怎樣處置呢?他必來除滅這些園戶,將葡萄園另租給別人。你們沒有讀過這段經文嗎?『匠人棄而不用的石頭,反而成了屋角的基石:那是上主的所作所為,在我們眼中神妙莫測。』」
他們明白這比喻是指他們說的,就想逮捕耶穌;但害怕群眾,於是離開他走了。
—基督的福音。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 12:1-12

1 And he began to speak to them in parables. “A man planted a vineyard, and set a hedge around it, and dug a pit for the wine press, and built a tower, and let it out to tenants, and went into another country. 2 When the time came, he sent a servant to the tenants, to get from them some of the fruit of the vineyard. 3 And they took him and beat him, and sent him away empty-handed. 4 Again he sent to them another servant, and they wounded him in the head, and treated him shamefully. 5 And he sent another, and him they killed; and so with many others, some they beat and some they killed. 6 He had still one other, a beloved son; finally he sent him to them, saying, `They will respect my son.’ 7 But those tenants said to one another, `This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.’ 8 And they took him and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard. 9 What will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the tenants, and give the vineyard to others. 10 Have you not read this scripture: `The very stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner; 11 this was the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes’?” 12 And they tried to arrest him, but feared the multitude, for they perceived that he had told the parable against them; so they left him and went away.

谷12:1-12  (其他經文──多1:3;2:1-8    詠112)
耶穌開始用比喻對司祭長、經師和長老們說:「有一個人培植了一個葡萄園,周圍圍上了籬笆,掘了一個榨酒池,築了一座守望台,把它租給園戶,就離開了本國。到了時節,他便打發一個僕人到園戶那裡,向園戶收取園中的果實;園戶卻抓住他,打了他,放他空手回去。主人又打發別的一個僕人到他們那裡去;他們打傷了他的頭,並且凌辱了他。主人又打發另一個,他們把他殺了;後又打發好些僕人去:有的他們打了,有的他們殺了。主人還有一個,即他的愛子;最後就打發他到他們那裡去,說:他們必會敬重我的兒子。那些園戶卻彼此說:這是繼承人,來!我們殺掉他,將來產業就歸我們了。於是,抓住他殺了,把他拋在葡萄園外。那麼,葡萄園的主人要怎樣處置呢?他必來除滅這些園戶,將葡萄園另租給別人。你們沒有讀過這段經文嗎?『匠人棄而不用的石頭,反而成了屋角的基石:那是上主的所作所為,在我們眼中神妙莫測。』」他們明白這比喻是指他們說的,就想逮捕耶穌;但害怕群眾,於是離開他走了。

默 想

  • 葡萄園主人的兒子,就是耶穌。園戶都心狠手辣,為了權勢和錢財,連繼承人都不放過。
  • 耶穌進一步預言自己將如葡萄園的兒子,遭到殺身之禍,眾人為的,不止是權勢錢財,很可能是更深層次的執著,他們的心硬到極點。
  • 拒絕耶穌,拒絕接受他是默西亞,是耶穌時代的人的心態,耶穌是死於他們的心硬。
  • 當我們的心變得柔軟,才有能力、勇氣,接受耶穌的身分,接受他在我們身上的化工,由他改變我們,變得更肖似上主。
