神父講道 – 常年期第十六週 (週三) (2013年7月24日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 13:1-9

在那一天,耶穌從家裏出來,坐在海邊上,有許多群眾集合到他跟前,他只得上船坐下,群眾都站在岸上。他就用比喻給他們講論了許多事,說:「看,有個撒種的出去撒種;他撒種的時候,有的落在路旁,飛鳥來把它們吃了。有的落在石頭地裏,那裏沒有多少土壤,因為所有的土壤不深,即刻發了芽,但太陽一出來,就被曬焦;又因為沒有根,就枯乾了。有的落在荊棘中,荊棘長起來,便把它們窒息了。有的落在好地裏,就結了果實:有一百倍的,有六十倍的,有三十倍的。有耳的,聽吧!」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 13:1-9

1 That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat beside the sea. 2 And great crowds gathered about him, so that he got into a boat and sat there; and the whole crowd stood on the beach. 3 And he told them many things in parables, saying: “A sower went out to sow. 4 And as he sowed, some seeds fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured them. 5 Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they had not much soil, and immediately they sprang up, since they had no depth of soil, 6 but when the sun rose they were scorched; and since they had no root they withered away. 7 Other seeds fell upon thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. 8 Other seeds fell on good soil and brought forth grain, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. 9 He who has ears, let him hear.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

瑪13:1-9  (讀經 ── 出16:1-5, 9-15  詠78)
在那一天,耶穌從家裡出來,坐在海邊上,有許多群眾集合到他跟前,他只得上船坐下,群眾都站在岸上。他就用比喻給他們講論了許多事,說:「看,有個撒種的出去撒種;他撒種的時候,有的落在路旁,飛鳥來把它們吃了。有的落在石頭地裡,那裡沒有多少土壤,因為所有的土壤不深,即刻發了芽,但太陽一出來,就被曬焦;又因為沒有根,就枯乾了。有的落在荊棘中,荊棘長起來,便把它們窒息了。有的落在好地裡,就結了果實:有一百倍的,有六十倍的,有三十倍的。有耳的,聽吧!」

 

默 想

  • 撒種的比喻看似講給最初認識天主的人,或稱為慕道者,邀請他們看看自己的心田,正處於哪種狀況。
  • 但又當然絕對不只給初信者,也說給我們已領洗多年的教友。
  • 到今天,我們的心田是否處於好土壤?還是仍然停留在路旁、石頭地、荊棘?
  • 怎樣才可準備自己的心田?以致收穫倍增?
  • 是時候問問自己:有多渴望由此得到百倍收成?這收成的本質,是源自上主的!若渴望越少,培養自己心田的意願與恆心,必越低。又是生命取捨及優次的問題。
