主日講道 – 常年期第三十二週主日 (2011年11月6日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 25:1-13

那時候,耶穌給門徒講了這個比喻,說:
「天國好比十個童女,拿著自己的燈,出去迎接新郎。她們中,五個是糊塗的,五個是明智的。糊塗的,拿了燈,卻沒有隨身帶油;而明智的,拿了燈,並且在壼裡帶了油。因為新郎遲遲未來,她們都打盹睡著了。
「半夜,有人喊說:新郎來了,你們出來迎接吧!那些童女於是都起來,裝備她們的燈。糊塗的,對明智的說:把你們的油,分些給我們吧!因為我們的燈,快要熄滅了!明智的回答說:怕為我們和你們都不夠,更好你們到賣油的地方,為自己買吧!
「她們去買的時候,新郎到了;那準備好了的,就同新郎進去,共赴婚宴;門於是關上了。後來,其餘的童女也來了,說:主啊!主啊!給我們開門吧!新郎卻回答說:我實在告訴你們:我不認識你們。
「所以,你們該醒寤,因為你們不知道那日子,也不知道那時辰。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 25:1-13

1 “Then the kingdom of heaven shall be compared to ten maidens who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3 For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them; 4 but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. 5 As the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. 6 But at midnight there was a cry, `Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ 7 Then all those maidens rose and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said to the wise, `Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ 9 But the wise replied, `Perhaps there will not be enough for us and for you; go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.’ 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast; and the door was shut. 11 Afterward the other maidens came also, saying, `Lord, lord, open to us.’ 12 But he replied, `Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ 13 Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.

耶穌給門徒講了這個比喻,說:
「天國好比十個童女,拿著自己的燈,出去迎接新郎。她們中,五個是糊塗的,五個是明智的。糊塗的,拿了燈,卻沒有隨身帶油;而明智的,拿了燈,並且在壼裡帶了油。因為新郎遲遲未來,她們都打盹睡著了。
「半夜,有人喊說:新郎來了,你們出來迎接吧!那些童女於是都起來,裝備她們的燈。糊塗的,對明智的說:把你們的油,分些給我們吧!因為我們的燈,快要熄滅了!明智的回答說:怕為我們和你們都不夠,更好你們到賣油的地方,為自己買吧!

「所以,你們該醒寤,因為你們不知道那日子,也不知道那時辰。」

默 想

  • 又是一個要未雨綢繆的故事。糊塗的沒有帶油,但她們把心放在哪裡呢?
  • 是不是只顧著交談,說是非呢?又或是憧憬著自己將來的新郎呢?
  • 參與感恩祭時,我們的心又在哪裡呢?若我們的一生是一特大的聖祭,我們的心又放在哪裡呢?
  • 總之,醒寤吧!快快問耶穌,我們現在應怎樣做。
