主日講道 – 常年期第三十四週主日 (基督普世君王節) (2011年11月20日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 25:31-46

那時候,耶穌對門徒說:「當人子在自己的光榮中,與眾天使一同降來時,那時,他要坐在光榮的寶座上;一切民族,都要聚在他面前。他要把他們彼此分開,如同牧人分開綿羊和山羊一樣:把綿羊放在自己的右邊,山羊在左邊。
「那時,君王要對那些在他右邊的說:我父所祝福的,你們來吧!承受自創世以來,給你們預備了的國度吧!因為我餓了,你們給了我吃的;我渴了,你們給了我喝的;我作客,你們收留了我;我赤身露體,你們給了我穿的;我患病,你們看顧了我;我在監裡,你們來探望過我。
「那時,義人回答君王說:主啊!我們什麼時候見過你飢餓,而供養了你,或口渴,而給了你喝的?我們什麼時候見了你作客,而收留了你,或赤身露體,而給了你穿的?我們什麼時候見你患病,或在監裡,而來探望過你?
「君王便回答他們說:我實在告訴你們:凡你們給我這些最小兄弟中的一個所做的,就是給我做的。
「然後,君王又對那些在左邊的說:可咒罵的,離開我,到那給魔鬼和他的使者預備的永火裡去吧!因為我餓了,你們沒有給我吃的;我渴了,你們沒有給我喝的;我作客,你們沒有收留我;我赤身露體,你們沒有給我穿的;我患病或在監裡,你們沒有來探望我。
「那時,他們也要回答說:主啊!我們幾時見了你飢餓,或口渴,或作客,或赤身露體,或有病,或坐監,而我們沒有給你效勞?
「那時,君王回答他們說:我實在告訴你們:凡你們沒有給這些最小兄弟中的一個做的,就是沒有給我做。
「這些人要進入永罰,而那些義人,卻要進入永生。」

(34th Sunday in Ordinary Time – Christ the King)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 25:31-46

31 “When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, 33 and he will place the sheep at his right hand, but the goats at the left. 34 Then the King will say to those at his right hand, `Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; 35 for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’
37 Then the righteous will answer him, `Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 And the King will answer them, `Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.’ 41 Then he will say to those at his left hand, `Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels; 42 for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ 44 Then they also will answer, `Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?’ 45 Then he will answer them, `Truly, I say to you, as you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to me.’ 46 And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

「那時,他們也要回答說:主啊!我們幾時見了你飢餓,或口渴,或作客,或赤身露體,或有病,或坐監,而我們沒有給你效勞?
「那時,君王回答他們說:我實在告訴你們:凡你們沒有給這些最小兄弟中的一個做的,就是沒有給我做。
「這些人要進入永罰,而那些義人,卻要進入永生。」

默 想

  • 基督那愛的展現非常實在,不是曲高和寡,是服侍和關愛那最最微小的,那微小的、軟弱的,也包括我們自己。
  • 有天,我們真能從也最微小的、軟弱的;我們不喜歡的人甚至憎恨者身上見到基督,我們將得到最窩心的安慰,那裡,再沒有仇恨、包袱、不自由。
  • 憑我們自己的努力、意志是做不到的,要注視著基督的眼睛,祂會帶著我們,在這些人身上見到祂,以得到治癒和釋放,愛的高峰也是如此。
  • 我們都不要企圖成為完美者,要定晴在那位完美的上主內,祂會引導我們發現自己的面目、不濟,並接受那真正的自己,了解那真正的自己,和認識基督就是我們要遇到的那一位。

神父講道 – 常年期第三十三週 (週六) (2011年11月19日)

恭讀聖路加福音 20:27-40

那時候,否認復活的撒杜塞人中,有幾個前來問耶穌說:「師傅,梅瑟給我們寫道:如果一個人的哥哥死了,遺下妻子而沒有子嗣,他的弟弟應娶他的妻子,給他哥哥立嗣。曾有兄弟七人,第一個娶了妻子,沒有嗣子就死了。第二個及第三個都娶過她為妻。七個人都是如此:沒有留下子嗣就死了。最後,連那婦人也死了。那麼,在復活的時候,這婦人是他們那一個的妻子?因為他們七個人都娶過她為妻。」耶穌對他們說:「今世之子也娶也嫁;但那堪得來世,及堪當由死者中復活的人,他們也不娶,也不嫁;什至他們也不能再死,因為他們相似天使;他們既是復活之子,也就是天主之子。至於死者復活,梅瑟已在荊棘篇中指明了:他稱上主為亞巴郎的天主,依撒格的天主及雅各伯的天主。他不是死人的,而是活人的天主:所有的人為他都是生活的。」有幾個經師中應聲說:「師傅!你說得好。」從此,他們再不敢質問他什麼了。

(Saturday of the 33rd Week in Ordinary Time)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 20:27-40

27 There came to him some Sadducees, those who say that there is no resurrection, 28 and they asked him a question, saying, “Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies, having a wife but no children, the man must take the wife and raise up children for his brother. 29 Now there were seven brothers; the first took a wife, and died without children; 30 and the second 31 and the third took her, and likewise all seven left no children and died. 32 Afterward the woman also died. 33 In the resurrection, therefore, whose wife will the woman be? For the seven had her as wife.” 34 And Jesus said to them, “The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage; 35 but those who are accounted worthy to attain to that age and to the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage, 36 for they cannot die any more, because they are equal to angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection. 37 But that the dead are raised, even Moses showed, in the passage about the bush, where he calls the Lord the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. 38 Now he is not God of the dead, but of the living; for all live to him.” 39 And some of the scribes answered, “Teacher, you have spoken well.” 40 For they no longer dared to ask him any question.
