神父講道 – 常年期第 十四週 (週五) (2012年7月13日)

聖皇亨利

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 10:16-23

那時候,耶穌對他的門徒說:「看,我派遣你們好像羊進入狼群中,所以你們要機警如同蛇,純樸如同鴿子。你們要提防世人,因為他們要把你們交給公議會,要在他們的會堂裏鞭打你們;並且你們要為我的緣故,被帶到總督和君王前,對他們和外邦人作證。當人把你們交出時,你們不要思慮:怎麼說,或說什麼,因為在時刻,自會賜給你們說什麼。因為說話的不是你們,而是你們父的聖神在你們內說話。弟兄要將弟兄,父親要將兒子置於死地,兒女也要起來反對父母,要將他們害死。你們為了我的名字,要為眾人所惱恨;唯獨堅持到底的,才可得救。但是,幾時人們在這城迫害你們,你們就逃往另一城去;我實在告訴你們:直到人子來到時,你們還未走完以色列的城吧。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 10:16-23

16 “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. 17 Beware of men; for they will deliver you up to councils, and flog you in their synagogues, 18 and you will be dragged before governors and kings for my sake, to bear testimony before them and the Gentiles. 19 When they deliver you up, do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you are to say; for what you are to say will be given to you in that hour; 20 for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. 21 Brother will deliver up brother to death, and the father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death; 22 and you will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved. 23 When they persecute you in one town, flee to the next; for truly, I say to you, you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel, before the Son of man comes.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

信仰生活互動坊、塔冷通心靈書舍

瑪10:16-23  (其他經文──創46:1-7, 28-30 詠37)
耶穌對他的門徒說:「看,我派遣你們好像羊進入狼群中,所以你們要機警如同蛇,純樸如同鴿子。你們要提防世人,因為他們要把你們交給公議會,要在他們的會堂裡鞭打你們;並且你們要為我的緣故,被帶到總督和君王前,對他們和外邦人作證。當人把你們交出時,你們不要思慮:怎麼說,或說什麼,因為在時刻,自會賜給你們說什麼。因為說話的不是你們,而是你們父的聖神在你們內說話。弟兄要將弟兄,父親要將兒子置於死地,兒女也要起來反對父母,要將他們害死。你們為了我的名字,要為眾人所惱恨;唯獨堅持到底的,才可得救。但是,幾時人們在這城迫害你們,你們就逃往另一城去;我實在告訴你們:直到人子來到時,你們還未走完以色列的城吧。」

默 想

  • 殉道,是一種恩寵,並不是人人可以做的事。伯多祿在耶穌被釘時,不認主,逃跑了,因為時候未到,恩寵未至。
  • 但是,當恩寵一到,伯多祿也有殉道的能力。什麼是時候到?就是和這個信仰有真實的聯繫,也就是和耶穌的生命有真實的聯繫,才有這恩寵。
  • 當這種聯繫出現時,殉道者甚至不用預備說什麼話,自有賜給他們要說的。
  • 可能有人說,我情願不要這真實的聯繫了。的確,為一般人來說,這是避之唯恐不及,但對一些願意把生命交給耶穌的人,若有需要時,正正可以為祂而死啊!

越南殉道烈士

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 10:7-15

那時候,耶穌對他的門徒說:「你們在路上應宣講說:天國臨近了。病人,你們要治好;死人,你們要復活;癩病人,你們要潔淨;魔鬼,你們要軀逐;你們白白得來的,也要白白分施。你們不要在腰帶裏備下金、銀、銅錢;路上不要帶口袋,也不要帶兩件內衣,也不要穿鞋,也不要帶棍杖,因為工人自當有他的食物。你們不論進了那一城或那一村,查問其中誰是當得起的,就住在那裏,直到你們離去。你們進那一家時,要向它請安。倘若這一家是堪當的,你們的平安仍歸於你們。誰若不接待你們,也不聽你們的話,當你們從那一家或那一城出來時,應把塵土由你們的腳上拂去。我實在告訴你們:在審判的日子,索多瑪和哈摩辣地所受的懲罰,比那座城所受的還要輕。」

—上主的話。

(14th Week in Ordinary Time – Thursday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 10:7-15

7 And preach as you go, saying, `The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ 8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons. You received without paying, give without pay. 9 Take no gold, nor silver, nor copper in your belts, 10 no bag for your journey, nor two tunics, nor sandals, nor a staff; for the laborer deserves his food. 11 And whatever town or village you enter, find out who is worthy in it, and stay with him until you depart. 12 As you enter the house, salute it. 13 And if the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it; but if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. 14 And if any one will not receive you or listen to your words, shake off the dust from your feet as you leave that house or town. 15 Truly, I say to you, it shall be more tolerable on the day of judgment for the land of Sodom and Gomor’rah than for that town.

—The Gospel of the Lord.
