神父講道 – 常年期第十一週 (週三) (2011年6月15日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 6:1-6,16-18
那時候,耶穌對他的門徒說:「你們應當心,不要在人前行你們的仁義,為叫他們看見;若是這樣,你們在天父之前,就沒有賞報了。所以,當你施捨時,不可在你前面吹號,如同假善人在會堂及街市上所行的一樣,為受人們的稱讚;我實在告訴你們,他們已獲得了他們的賞報。當你施捨時,不要叫你左手知道你右手所行的,好使你的施捨隱而不露,你父在暗中看見,必要報答你。當你祈禱時,不要如同假善人一樣,愛在會堂及十字街頭立著祈禱,為顯示給人;我實在告訴你們,他們已獲得了他們的賞報。至於你,當你祈禱時,要進入你的內室,關上門,向你在暗中之父祈禱;你的父在暗中看見,必要報答你。幾時你們禁食,不要如同假善人一樣,面帶愁容;因為他們苦喪著臉,是為叫人看出他們禁食來。我實在告訴你們,他們已獲得了他們的賞報。至於你,當你禁食時,要用油抹你的頭,洗你的臉,不要叫人看出你禁食來,但叫你那在暗中之父看見;你的父在暗中看見,必將報答你。」
—基督的福音。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 6:1-6, 16-18

1 “Beware of practicing your piety before men in order to be seen by them; for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven. 2 “Thus, when you give alms, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by men. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 3 But when you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your alms may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you. 5 “And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by men. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 6 But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you. 16 “And when you fast, do not look dismal, like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fasting may be seen by men. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 17 But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, 18 that your fasting may not be seen by men but by your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.

瑪6:1-6, 16-18    (讀經 ── 格後9:6-11   詠112)
「你們應當心,不要在人前行你們的仁義,為叫他們看見;若是這樣,你們在天父之前,就沒有賞報了所以,當你施捨時,不可在你前面吹號,如同假善人在會堂及街市上所行的一樣,為受人們的稱讚;我實在告訴你們,他們已獲得了他們的賞報。當你施捨時,不要叫你左手知道你右手所行的,好使你的施捨隱而不露,你父在暗中看見,必要報答你。當你祈禱時,不要如同假善人一樣,愛在會堂及十字街頭立著祈禱,為顯示給人;我實在告訴你們,他們已獲得了他們的賞報。至於你,當你祈禱時,要進入你的內室,關上門,向你在暗中之父祈禱;你的父在暗中看見,必要報答你。
幾時你們禁食,不要如同假善人一樣,面帶愁容;因為他們苦喪著臉,是為叫人看出他們禁食來。我實在告訴你們,他們已獲得了他們的賞報。至於你,當你禁食時,要用油抹你的頭,洗你的臉,不要叫人看出你禁食來,但叫你那在暗中之父看見;你的父在暗中看見,必要報答你。」

默 想

  • 耶穌這種論點,老實說,即使在今天的教會,也很少人實行。有很多人捐錢,就要有什麼什麼紀念堂做為回報。
  • 但是,耶穌為何要我們這樣做?只是為了不出名?非也。因為耶穌希望我們能進入內心。
  • 人類真正的成長,只有在內心進行,沒有別的途徑。若我們的關注點放在外面,別人的目光,我們便沒有成長的可能。
  • 我們所做的一切,無論好事壞事,都要在內心發酵,經過內心的掙扎,我們最後會成長。

神父講道 – 常年期第十一週 (週二) (2011年6月14日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 5:43-48
那時候,耶穌對他的門徒說:「你們一向聽說過:『你應愛你的近人,恨你的仇人!』我卻對你們說:你們當愛你們的仇人,當為迫害你們的人祈禱,好使你們成為你們在天之父的子女,因為他使太陽上升,光照惡人,也光照善人;降雨給義人,也給不義的人。你們若只愛那愛你們的人,你們還有什麼賞報呢?稅吏不是也這樣作嗎?你們若只問候你們的弟兄,你們作了什麼特別的呢?外邦人不是也這樣作嗎?所以你們應當是成全的,如同你們的天父是成全的一樣。」
—基督的福音。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 5:43-48

43 “You have heard that it was said, `You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, Love our enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you salute only your brethren, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? 48 You, therefore, must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

—The Gospel of the Lord.
