神父講道 – 常年期第三十三週 (週三) (2011年11月16日)

恭讀聖路加福音 19:11-28

當眾人聽耶穌講話的時候,耶穌因為已臨近耶路撒冷,而且他們都以為天主的國快要出現,遂設了一個比喻說:「有一個貴人起身到遠方去,為取得了王位再回來。他將自己的十個僕人叫來,交給他們十個「米納」(銀幣),並囑咐說:你們拿去做生意,直到我回來。他本國的人一向懷恨他,遂在他後面派代表去說:我們不願意這人為王統治我們。這貴人得了王位歸來以後,便傳召那些領了他錢的僕人,想知道每個人做生意賺了多少。第一個前來說:主!你的那個「米納」(銀幣)賺了十個「米納」(銀幣)。主人對他說:好,善僕!你既然在小事上忠信,你要有權掌管十座城。第二個前來說:主!你的那個「米納」(銀幣)賺了五個「米納」(銀幣)。主人也對這人說:你也要掌管五座城。另一個前來說:主!看,你那個「米納」(銀幣),我收存在手巾裏。我一向害怕你,因為你是一個嚴厲的人:你沒有存放的,也要提取;沒有下種的,也要收割。主人向他說:惡僕!我就憑你的口供定你的罪。你不是知道我是個嚴厲的人,沒有存放的,也要提取;沒有下種的,也要收割的嗎?為什麼你不把我的錢存於錢莊,待我回來時,我可以連本帶利取出來。主人便向侍立左右的人說:你們把他那個「米納」(銀幣)奪過來,給那有十個的。他們向他說:主!他已有十個「米納」(銀幣)了。我告訴你們:凡是有的,還要給他;那沒有的,連他所有的,也要從他奪去。至於那些敵對我,不願意我作他們君王的人,你們把他們押到這裏,在我面前殺掉。」
耶穌說了這些話,就領頭前行,上耶路撒冷去。

—基督的福音。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 19:11-28

11 As they heard these things, he proceeded to tell a parable, because he was near to Jerusalem, and because they supposed that the kingdom of God was to appear immediately. 12 He said therefore, “A nobleman went into a far country to receive a kingdom and then return. 13 Calling ten of his servants, he gave them ten pounds, and said to them, `Trade with these till I come.’ 14 But his citizens hated him and sent an embassy after him, saying, `We do not want this man to reign over us.’ 15 When he returned, having received the kingdom, he commanded these servants, to whom he had given the money, to be called to him, that he might know what they had gained by trading. 16 The first came before him, saying, `Lord, your pound has made ten pounds more.’ 17 And he said to him, `Well done, good servant! Because you have been faithful in a very little, you shall have authority over ten cities.’ 18 And the second came, saying, `Lord, your pound has made five pounds.’ 19 And he said to him, `And you are to be over five cities.’ 20 Then another came, saying, `Lord, here is your pound, which I kept laid away in a napkin; 21 for I was afraid of you, because you are a severe man; you take up what you did not lay down, and reap what you did not sow.’ 22 He said to him, `I will condemn you out of your own mouth, you wicked servant! You knew that I was a severe man, taking up what I did not lay down and reaping what I did not sow? 23 Why then did you not put my money into the bank, and at my coming I should have collected it with interest?’ 24 And he said to those who stood by, `Take the pound from him, and give it to him who has the ten pounds.’ 25 (And they said to him, `Lord, he has ten pounds!’) 26 `I tell you, that to every one who has will more be given; but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away. 27 But as for these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slay them before me.'” 28 And when he had said this, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem.

路19:11-28    (讀經 ── 加下7:1, 20-31   詠17)
當眾人聽耶穌講話的時候,耶穌因為已臨近耶路撒冷,而且他們都以為天主的國快要出現,遂設了一個比喻說:「有一個貴人起身到遠方去,為取得了王位再回來。他將自己的十個僕人叫來,交給他們十個「米納」(銀幣),並囑咐說:你們拿去做生意,直到我回來。他本國的人一向懷恨他,遂在他後面派代表去說:我們不願意這人為王統治我們。這貴人得了王位歸來以後,便傳召那些領了他錢的僕人,想知道每個人做生意賺了多少。第一個前來說:主!你的那個「米納」(銀幣)賺了十個「米納」(銀幣)。主人對他說:好,善僕!你既然在小事上忠信,你要有權掌管十座城。第二個前來說:主!你的那個「米納」(銀幣)賺了五個「米納」(銀幣)。主人也對這人說:你也要掌管五座城。另一個前來說:主!看,你那個「米納」(銀幣),我收存在手巾裡。我一向害怕你,因為你是一個嚴厲的人:你沒有存放的,也要提取;沒有下種的,也要收割。主人向他說:惡僕!我就憑你的口供定你的罪。你不是知道我是個嚴厲的人,沒有存放的,也要提取;沒有下種的,也要收割的嗎?為什麼你不把我的錢存於錢莊,待我回來時,我可以連本帶利取出來。主人便向侍立左右的人說:你們把他那個「米納」(銀幣)奪過來,給那有十個的。他們向他說:主!他已有十個「米納」(銀幣)了。我告訴你們:凡是有的,還要給他;那沒有的,連他所有的,也要從他奪去。至於那些敵對我,不願意我作他們君王的人,你們把他們押到這裡,在我面前殺掉。」耶穌說了這些話,就領頭前行,上耶路撒冷去。

默 想

  • 這個米納的故事,一如瑪竇福音25章中塔冷通的比喻一樣。
  • 我們認為自己的那個米納代表什麼?我一向如何運用或發揮這個「米納」?我有好好地運用它嗎?
  • 我有因為害怕連這個米納也輸掉,而好像那名「惡僕」一樣嗎?
  • 若畏懼佔領我們的心,我們對上主的愛就被窒礙了,我們也失卻了真正自由的生命。
  • 生命中,只有愛或恐懼,專注在上主內,由祂跟我們驅除內心深處的恐懼,我們內心潛藏的愛,才得以活化,好滋養我們與祂的關係。
  • 信仰的生命是:甘願為主交出自己的「米納」,祂會帶領我們,賺取屬於祂的更多的「米納」,在真愛和自由的生命裡。
