神父講道 – 四旬期第二週 (週六) (2012年3月10日)

恭讀聖路加福音 15:1-3,11-32

那時候,眾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:「這人交接罪人,又同他們吃飯。」耶穌遂對他們設了這個比喻說:「一個人有兩個兒子,那小的向父親說:父親,請把我應得的一份家產給我吧!父親遂把產業給他們分開了。過了不多幾天,小兒子把所有的一切都收拾起來,就往遠方去了。他在那裡荒淫度日,耗費他的資財。當他把所有的都揮霍盡了以後,那地方正遇著大荒年,他便開始窮困起來。他去投靠一個當地的居民;那人打發他到自己的莊田裡上去放豬。他恨不能拿豬吃的豆莢來果腹,可是沒有人給他。他反躬自問:我父親有多少傭工,都口糧豐盛,我在這裡反要餓死!我要起身到我父親那裡去,並且要給他說:父親,我得罪了天,也得罪了你。我不配再稱作你的兒子,把我當作你的一個傭工吧!他便起身到他父親那裡去了。他離的還遠的時候,他父親就看見了他,動了憐憫的心,跑上前去,撲到他的脖子上,熱情地親吻他。兒子向他說:父親!我得罪了天,也得罪了你,我不配再稱作你的兒子了!父親卻吩咐自己的僕人說:你們快拿出上等的袍子來給他穿上;把戒指戴在他手上,給他腳上穿上鞋,再把那隻肥牛犢牽來宰了,我們應吃喝歡宴,因為我這個兒子是死而復生,失而復得了;他們就歡宴起來。那時,他的長子正在田地裡。當他回來快到家的時候,聽見有奏樂及歌舞的歡聲,遂叫一個僕人過來,問他這是什麼事。僕人向他說:你弟弟回來了。你父親因為見他無恙歸來,便為他宰了那隻肥牛犢。長子就生氣不肯進去,他父親遂出來勸解他。他回答父親說:你看,這些年來我服侍你,從未違背過你的命令,而你從未給過我一隻小山羊,讓我同我的朋友們歡宴;但你這個兒子同娼妓們耗盡了你的財產,他一回來,你倒為他宰了那隻肥牛犢。父親給他說:孩子!你常同我在一起,凡我所有的,都是你的;只因為你這個弟弟死而復生,失而復得,應當歡宴喜樂!」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 15:1-3,11-32

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:
11 And he said, “There was a man who had two sons; 12 and the younger of them said to his father, `Father, give me the share of property that falls to me.’ And he divided his living between them. 13 Not many days later, the younger son gathered all he had and took his journey into a far country, and there he squandered his property in loose living. 14 And when he had spent everything, a great famine arose in that country, and he began to be in want. 15 So he went and joined himself to one of the citizens of that country, who sent him into his fields to feed swine. 16 And he would gladly have fed on the pods that the swine ate; and no one gave him anything. 17 But when he came to himself he said, `How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, but I perish here with hunger! 18 I will arise and go to my father, and I will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you; 19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son; treat me as one of your hired servants.”‘ 20 And he arose and came to his father. But while he was yet at a distance, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him. 21 And the son said to him, `Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ 22 But the father said to his servants, `Bring quickly the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet; 23 and bring the fatted calf and kill it, and let us eat and make merry; 24 for this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.’ And they began to make merry.
25 “Now his elder son was in the field; and as he came and drew near to the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 And he called one of the servants and asked what this meant. 27 And he said to him, `Your brother has come, and your father has killed the fatted calf, because he has received him safe and sound.’ 28 But he was angry and refused to go in. His father came out and entreated him, 29 but he answered his father, `Lo, these many years I have served you, and I never disobeyed your command; yet you never gave me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends. 30 But when this son of yours came, who has devoured your living with harlots, you killed for him the fatted calf!’ 31 And he said to him, `Son, you are always with me, and all that is mine is yours. 32 It was fitting to make merry and be glad, for this your brother was dead, and is alive; he was lost, and is found.'”

路15:1-3, 11-32    (讀經 ── 米7:14-15, 18-20   詠103)
眾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:「這人交接罪人,又同他們吃飯。」耶穌遂對他們設了這個比喻說:「一個人有兩個兒子,那小的向父親說:父親,請把我應得的一份家產給我吧!父親遂把產業給他們分開了。過了不多幾天,小兒子把所有的一切都收拾起來,就往遠方去了。他在那裡荒淫度日,耗費他的資財。當他把所有的都揮霍盡了以後,那地方正遇著大荒年,他便開始窮困起來。他去投靠一個當地的居民;那人打發他到自己的莊田裡上去放豬。他恨不能拿豬吃的豆莢來果腹,可是沒有人給他。他反躬自問:我父親有多少傭工,都口糧豐盛,我在這裡反要餓死!我要起身到我父親那裡去,並且要給他說:父親,我得罪了天,也得罪了你。我不配再稱作你的兒子,把我當作你的一個傭工吧!他便起身到他父親那裡去了。他離的還遠的時候,他父親就看見了他,動了憐憫的心,跑上前去,撲到他的脖子上,熱情地親吻他。兒子向他說:父親!我得罪了天,也得罪了你,我不配再稱作你的兒子了!父親卻吩咐自己的僕人說:你們快拿出上等的袍子來給他穿上;把戒指戴在他手上,給他腳上穿上鞋,再把那隻肥牛犢牽來宰了,我們應吃喝歡宴,因為我這個兒子是死而復生,失而復得了;他們就歡宴起來。那時,他的長子正在田地裡。當他回來快到家的時候,聽見有奏樂及歌舞的歡聲,遂叫一個僕人過來,問他這是什麼事。僕人向他說:你弟弟回來了。你父親因為見他無恙歸來,便為他宰了那隻肥牛犢。長子就生氣不肯進去,他父親遂出來勸解他。他回答父親說:你看,這些年來我服侍你,從未違背過你的命令,而你從未給過我一隻小山羊,讓我同我的朋友們歡宴;但你這個兒子同娼妓們耗盡了你的財產,他一回來,你倒為他宰了那隻肥牛犢。父親給他說:孩子!你常同我在一起,凡我所有的,都是你的;只因為你這個弟弟死而復生,失而復得,應當歡宴喜樂!」

默 想

  • 如果你覺察自己是「小兒子」,你會越發願意悔改,回轉過來,洗心革面。你會開始培養一顆感謝的心,深知自己曾經得罪自己、得罪了人、得罪天主。
  • 我們當中很可能更多的是「大兒子」,我們很聽天主話,遵守教規,至少做了最基本的,於是心底暗暗沾沾自喜,覺得自己很好。
  • 因此,我們可能對一些天主很愛錫的子女,心存妒忌,在說著「大兒子」的話,開始與天主斤斤計較。
  • 「大兒子」都是自我中心的,他體察不到父親見到「小兒子」歸來後那份欣喜若狂。他甚至經驗不到「弟弟」的悔疚和回轉。
  • 處境代入,如果我們是「大兒子」,如何可令自己不再妒忌,不再酸溜溜,替父親也感到安慰和欣喜?唯有放下自己,不看自己那麼重要,不以自己為中心,而是以「家庭」為中心。
  • 這種以「家庭」為中心,正是天主經的首幾句:「……願你的國來臨……」共同建設天主的國度。

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 21:33-43,45-46

那時候,耶穌對司祭長和民間長老說:「你們再聽一個比喻吧!從前有一個家主,培植了一個葡萄園,周圍圍上籬笆,園內挖了一個榨酒池,築了一個守望台,把它租給園戶,就離開了本國。快到收果子的時節,他打發僕人到園戶那裡去收果子。園戶拿住了僕人,將一個鞭打了,將一個殺了,將另一個用石頭砸死了。他再打發一些僕人去,人數比以前還多;園戶也一樣對待了他們,最後他打發自己的兒子到他們那裡去,說:他們會敬重我的兒子。但園戶一看見是兒子,就彼此說:這是繼承人;來!我們殺掉他,我們就能得到他的產業。於是他們拿住他,把他推到園外殺了。那麼﹐當葡萄園的主人來時,他要怎樣處置那些園戶呢?」他們回答說:「要凶惡地消滅那些凶惡的人,把葡萄園另租給按時給他繳納出產的園戶。」耶穌對他們說:「『匠人棄而不用的石頭,反而成了屋角的基石;那是上主的所行所為,在我們眼中,神妙莫測!』的這句經文,你們沒有讀過嗎?為此,我對你們說,天主的國,必由你們中奪去,而交給結果子的外邦人。」
司祭長和法利塞人聽了他的這些比喻,覺出他是指著他們說的,就想逮住他,但害怕民眾,因為他們以耶穌為一位先知。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 21:33-46

33 “Hear another parable. There was a householder who planted a vineyard, and set a hedge around it, and dug a wine press in it, and built a tower, and let it out to tenants, and went into another country. 34 When the season of fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the tenants, to get his fruit; 35 and the tenants took his servants and beat one, killed another, and stoned another. 36 Again he sent other servants, more than the first; and they did the same to them. 37 Afterward he sent his son to them, saying, `They will respect my son.’ 38 But when the tenants saw the son, they said to themselves, `This is the heir; come, let us kill him and have his inheritance.’ 39 And they took him and cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. 40 When therefore the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?” 41 They said to him, “He will put those wretches to a miserable death, and let out the vineyard to other tenants who will give him the fruits in their seasons.” 42 Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the scriptures: `The very stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner; this was the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes’? 43 Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a nation producing the fruits of it.” 45 When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables, they perceived that he was speaking about them. 46 But when they tried to arrest him, they feared the multitudes, because they held him to be a prophet.
