路16:1-8    (讀經 ── 羅15:14-21   詠98)
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。那管家自這自語道: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。」

默 想

  • 看耶穌比喻最重要的原則就是,每個比喻的重心只有一點,其他都是無關宏旨的。
  • 例如這個不義的管家,我們會說他是奸仔,但主人為何會讚他呢?很簡單,耶穌想讚的就是未雨綢繆。
  • 我們時常都以為自己有未雨綢繆,但當真正回頭一望,發現自己的人生如碎片,不如意事十常八九,我們就知道,自己的綢繆實在一塌糊塗,為何會這樣呢?
  • 這是因為我們常在旁枝上著力,最重要的,卻從未綢繆!

神父講道 – 常年期第三十一週 (週四) (2011年11月3日)

恭讀聖路加福音 15:1-10

那時候,稅吏及罪人們都來接近耶穌,為聽他講道。法利塞人及經師們竊竊私議說:「這個人接待罪人,又同他們一起吃飯!」耶穌遂對他們設了這個比喻說:「你們中間那個人有一百隻羊,遺失了其中的一隻,而不把這九十九隻丟在荒野,去尋覓那遺失的一隻,直到找著呢?待找著了,就歡天喜地把牠放在自己的肩膀上,回到家中,請他的友好及鄰人來,對他們說:你們與我一同歡樂吧!因為我那隻遺失了的羊,又找到了。我告訴你們:同樣,因為一個罪人悔改,在天上也要這樣歡樂,而且比對那九十九個無須悔改的義人的歡樂更大。
「或者一個婦女,有十個銀幣,若遺失了一個,那有不點上燈,打掃房屋,細心尋找,直到找到呢?待找到了,她就請朋友及鄰人來說:你們與我一同歡樂吧!因為我失去的那個銀幣又找到了。我告訴你們:對於一個罪人悔改,在天主的使者前,也是這樣歡樂。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 15:1-10

1 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him.2 And the Pharisees and the scribes murmured, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.” 3 So he told them this parable: 4 “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost, until he finds it? 5 And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6 And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, `Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost.’ 7 Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance. 8 “Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp and sweep the house and seek diligently until she finds it? 9 And when she has found it, she calls together her friends and neighbors, saying, `Rejoice with me, for I have found the coin which I had lost.’ 10 Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.
