A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 13:18-21

18 He said therefore, “What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it? 19 It is like a grain of mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his garden; and it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches.” 20 And again he said, “To what shall I compare the kingdom of God? 21 It is like leaven which a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened.”

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 22:34-40

那時候,法利塞人聽說耶穌使撒杜塞人,閉口無言,就聚集在一起;他們中有一個法學士,去試探耶穌,問耶穌說:「師父,法律中,那條誡命是最大的?」
耶穌對他說:「『你應全心、全靈、全意, 愛上主、你的天主。』這是最大,也是第一條誡命。第二條與此相似:你應當愛近人,如你自己。全部法律和先知,都繫於這兩條誡命。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 22:34-40

34 But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they came together. 35 And one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, to test him. 36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?” 37 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment.39 And a second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments depend all the law and the prophets.”

恭讀聖路加福音 13:1-9

正在那時,來了幾個人把有關加里肋亞人的事,即比拉多把他們的血,與他們的祭品攙和在一起的事,報告給耶穌。他回答說:「你們以為這些加里肋亞人,比其他所有的加里肋亞人更有罪,才遭此禍害嗎?不是的。我告訴你們:如果你們不悔改,你們都要同樣喪亡。或如史羅亞塔倒下,而壓死的那十八個人。你們以為他們比耶路撒冷的其他居民罪債更大嗎?不是的。我告訴你們:如果你們不悔改,你們都要同樣喪亡。」
耶穌又講了這個比喻說:「有一個人曾將一棵無花果樹,栽在自己的葡萄園內。他來在樹上找果子,但沒有找到,便對園丁說:「你看,我三年來在這棵無花果樹上找果子,但沒有找到,你砍掉它吧!為什麼讓它白佔土地呢?」園丁回答他說:「主人!再留它一年吧!待我在它周圍掘鬆泥土,加上肥料;將來若結果子便算了;不然的話,你就把它砍掉吧!」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 13:1-9

1 There were some present at that very time who told him of the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. 2 And he answered them, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans, because they suffered thus? 3 I tell you, No; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish. 4 Or those eighteen upon whom the tower in Silo’am fell and killed them, do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others who dwelt in Jerusalem? 5 I tell you, No; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.” 6 And he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. 7 And he said to the vinedresser, `Lo, these three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and I find none. Cut it down; why should it use up the ground?’ 8 And he answered him, `Let it alone, sir, this year also, till I dig about it and put on manure. 9 And if it bears fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down.'”

恭讀聖路加福音 12:54-59

那時候,耶穌向群眾說:「幾時你們看見雲彩由西方升起,立刻就說,要下大雨了;果然是這樣。幾時南風吹來,就說,天氣會熱了;果然是這樣。假善人哪!你們知道觀察地上及天上的氣象,怎麼不能觀察這個時機呢?你們為什麼不能由自己來辨別正義的事呢?當你同你的對頭去見官長時,尚在路上,你得設法與他了結,怕他拉你到法官前,判官把你交給刑役,而刑役把你押在獄中。我告訴你:非等你還清最後的一分錢,斷不能從那裏出來。」

—基督的福音。

(Friday of the 29th Week in Ordinary Time)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 12:54-59

54 He also said to the multitudes, “When you see a cloud rising in the west, you say at once, `A shower is coming’; and so it happens. 55 And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, `There will be scorching heat’; and it happens. 56 You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky; but why do you not know how to interpret the present time? 57 “And why do you not judge for yourselves what is right?58 As you go with your accuser before the magistrate, make an effort to settle with him on the way, lest he drag you to the judge, and the judge hand you over to the officer, and the officer put you in prison. 59 I tell you, you will never get out till you have paid the very last copper.”

路13:18-21    (讀經 ── 羅8:18-25   詠126)
耶穌說:「天主的國相似什麼?我要把它比作什麼呢?它相似一粒芥子,人取來種在自己的園中,它遂生長起來,成為大樹,天上的飛鳥都棲息在它的枝頭上。」他又說:「我要把天主的國比作什麼呢?它相似酵母,女人取來藏在三斗麵中,直到全部發酵。」

默 想

  • 我們這些皈依上主的人,能否時刻意識到,天國已在我們當中、心中?
  • 這天國一如那粒原本小小的芥子,卻有無限潛能,發揚發光發熱,得以成蔭成樹,惠澤他人?
  • 還是我們尚未有這份意識,不為意上主在等待我們的回應,好與祂合作,將祂的天國實踐人間?
  • 如何才是落實這種實踐精神?我們可否心存善意、愛心,即使面對自己不大喜歡的人,也嘗試培養一份厚愛、欣賞的情操?
  • 只因為,所謂最討人憎厭的人,我們相信天主都愛他疼他,他更需要別人的祝福。
