聖良一世 (教宗、聖師) (紀念)

恭讀聖路加福音 16:9-15

那時候,耶穌對門徒說:「你們要用不義的錢財結交朋友,為在你們匱乏的時候,好叫他們收留你們到永遠的帳幕裏。在小事上忠信的,在大事上也忠信;在小事上不義的,在大事上也不義。那麼,如果你們在不義的錢財上不忠信,誰還把真實的錢財委託給你們呢?如果你們在別人的財物上不忠信,誰還把屬於你們的交給你們呢?
「沒有一個家僕能事奉兩個主人的:他或是要恨這一個而愛那一個,或是要依附這一個而輕忽那一個;你們不能事奉天主而又事奉錢財。」愛財的法利塞人聽了這一切話,便嗤笑耶穌。耶穌向他們說:「你們在人前自充義人,但是天主知道你們的心,因為在人前是崇高的事,在天主前卻是可憎的。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 16:9-15

9 And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of unrighteous mammon, so that when it fails they may receive you into the eternal habitations. 10 “He who is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much; and he who is dishonest in a very little is dishonest also in much. 11 If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will entrust to you the true riches? 12 And if you have not been faithful in that which is another’s, who will give you that which is your own? 13 No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” 14 The Pharisees, who were lovers of money, heard all this, and they scoffed at him. 15 But he said to them, “You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts; for what is exalted among men is an abomination in the sight of God.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

路16:9-15  (讀經 ── 斐4:10-19  詠112)
耶穌對門徒說:「你們要用不義的錢財結交朋友,為在你們匱乏的時候,好叫他們收留你們到永遠的帳幕裡。在小事上忠信的,在大事上也忠信;在小事上不義的,在大事上也不義。那麼,如果你們在不義的錢財上不忠信,誰還把真實的錢財委託給你們呢?如果你們在別人的財物上不忠信,誰還把屬於你們的交給你們呢?
「沒有一個家僕能事奉兩個主人的:他或是要恨這一個而愛那一個,或是要依附這一個而輕忽那一個;你們不能事奉天主而又事奉錢財。」愛財的法利塞人聽了這一切話,便嗤笑耶穌。耶穌向他們說:「你們在人前自充義人,但是天主知道你們的心,因為在人前是崇高的事,在天主前卻是可憎的。」

默 想

  • 我們應該憎惡錢財嗎?這在現實世界中,可能真的有難度,而且,耶穌真正的意思是叫我們憎惡錢財?
  • 我們相信不是的。只不過,世間任何萬物,都有應有的位置。
  • 我們不用憎恨金錢,但若愛金錢多於親情、友情、道義、公義、健康、德行……那麼,就有問題了。
  • 但是,現今的社會正好像是這樣,我們作為基督徒,又怎樣呢?和社會其他人,又有沒有分別呢?
