神父講道 – 常年期第十七週 (週二) (2013年7月30日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 13:36-43

那時,耶穌離開了群眾,來到家裏,他的門徒就前來對他說:「請把田間莠子的比喻給我們講解一下!」他就回答說:「那撒好種子的,就是人子;田就是世界;好種子,即是天國的子民;莠子即是邪惡的子民;那撒莠子的仇人,就是魔鬼;收割時期,即是今世的終結;收割者即是天使。就如將莠子收集起來,用火焚燒;在今世終結時也將是如此;人子要差遣他的天使,由他的國內,將一切使人跌倒的事,及作惡的人收集起來,扔到火窰裏;在那裏要有哀號和切齒。那時,義人要在他們父的國裏,發光如同太陽。有耳的,聽吧!」

—上主的話。

(17th Week in Ordinary Time – Tuesday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 13:36-43

36 Then he left the crowds and went into the house. And his disciples came to him, saying, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the field.” 37 He answered, “He who sows the good seed is the Son of man; 38 the field is the world, and the good seed means the sons of the kingdom; the weeds are the sons of the evil one, 39 and the enemy who sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the close of the age, and the reapers are angels. 40 Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the close of the age. 41 The Son of man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all evildoers, 42 and throw them into the furnace of fire; there men will weep and gnash their teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

瑪13:36-43  (讀經 ── 出33:7-11;34:5-9, 28  詠103)
耶穌離開了群眾,來到家裡,他的門徒就前來對他說:「請把田間莠子的比喻給我們講解一下!」他就回答說:「那撒好種子的,就是人子;田就是世界;好種子,即是天國的子民;莠子即是邪惡的子民;那撒莠子的仇人,就是魔鬼;收割時期,即是今世的終結;收割者即是天使。就如將莠子收集起來,用火焚燒;在今世終結時也將是如此;人子要差遣他的天使,由他的國內,將一切使人跌倒的事,及作惡的人收集起來,扔到火窰裡;在那裡要有哀號和切齒。那時,義人要在他們父的國裡,發光如同太陽。有耳的,聽吧!

 

默 想

  • 我們分辨出自己是麥子或莠子嗎?有意或無心之間,我們會否成為了別人的莠子?例如說話傷了別人,或顯得漠不關心!
  • 面對身邊的「莠子」(或我們視他們為「莠子」的),我們學會自處嗎?被他們影響嗎?
  • 要作好「麥子」,需要的是決心、勇氣、明辨的智慧。
