神父講道 – 常年期第十八週 (週一) (2013年8月5日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 14:22-36

群眾吃飽以後,耶穌即刻催迫門徒上船,在他以先到對岸去;這期間,他遣散了群眾。耶穌遣散了群眾以後,他私自上山祈禱去了。到了夜晚,他獨自一人在那裏。船已離岸幾里了,受著波浪的顛簸,因為吹的是逆風。夜間四更時分,耶穌步行海上,朝著他們走去。門徒看見他在海上行走,就驚駭說:「是個妖怪。」並且嚇得大叫起來。耶穌立即向他們說道:「放心!是我。不必害怕!」伯多祿回答說:「主!如果是你,請下令,我從水面上走到你那裏去!」耶穌說:「來吧!」
伯多祿回答說:「主!如果是你,就叫我在水面步行你那裏吧!」耶穌說:「來吧!」伯多祿遂從船上下來,走在水面上,往耶穌那裏去。但他一見風勢很強,就害怕起來,並開始下沉,遂大叫說:「主,救我吧!」耶穌立刻伸手拉住他,對他說:「小信德的人啊!你為什麼懷疑?」他們一上了船,風就停了。船上的人便朝拜他說:「你真是天主子!」
他們渡海到對岸,來到革乃撒勒的地方。那地方的人一認出是耶穌,就打發人到周圍整個地方,把一切患病的人,都帶到耶穌跟前,求耶穌讓他們只摸摸他的衣邊;凡摸著的,都痊愈了。

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 14:22-36

22 Then he made the disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. 23 And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, 24 but the boat by this time was many furlongs distant from the land, beaten by the waves; for the wind was against them. 25 And in the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. 26 But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out for fear. 27 But immediately he spoke to them, saying, “Take heart, it is I; have no fear.” 28 And Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, bid me come to you on the water.” 29 He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus; 30 but when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.” 31 Jesus immediately reached out his hand and caught him, saying to him, “O man of little faith, why did you doubt?” 32 And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. 33 And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.” 34 And when they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennesaret. 35 And when the men of that place recognized him, they sent round to all that region and brought to him all that were sick, 36 and besought him that they might only touch the fringe of his garment; and as many as touched it were made well.

瑪14:22-36  (讀經 ── 戶11:4-15  詠81)
群眾吃飽以後,耶穌即刻催迫門徒上船,在他以先到對岸去;這期間,他遣散了群眾。耶穌遣散了群眾以後,他私自上山祈禱去了。到了夜晚,他獨自一人在那裡。船已離岸幾里了,受著波浪的顛簸,因為吹的是逆風。夜間四更時分,耶穌步行海上,朝著他們走去。門徒看見他在海上行走,就驚駭說:「是個妖怪。」並且嚇得大叫起來。耶穌立即向他們說道:「放心!是我。不必害怕!」伯多祿回答說:「主!如果是你,請下令,我從水面上走到你那裡去!」耶穌說:「來吧!」

默 想

  • 剛剛有慕道班成員問,為何現今世代少見神蹟?不再像耶穌年代,充滿上主的痕跡。
  • 答案有兩個:第一,其實並不是少了神蹟,而是我們是否能察覺呢?因為神蹟的形式可能改變了。
  • 第二,天主並不是沒有計劃地去做一件事。在聖經中,我們可以看到耶穌所行的神蹟都有他自己的獨特意思。而且,那個年代,人類未進步,需要神蹟的力量多於我們今天。
  • 今天科技所做的事,在以前可能已被認為是神蹟。但是,無論古或今,我們的心仍然需要改變,回歸上主。我們心的回歸,是最大的神蹟!

Message of OL to Mirjana( Aug 2, 2013)
Dear children; If only you would open your hearts to me with complete trust, you would comprehend everything. You would comprehend with how much love I am calling you; with how much love I desire to change you, to make you happy; with how much love I desire to make you followers of my Son and give you peace in the fullness of my Son. You would comprehend the immeasurable greatness of my motherly love. That is why, my children, pray because through prayer your faith grows and love is born, the love along which even the cross is not unendurable because you do not carry it alone. In union with my Son you glorify the name of the Heavenly Father. Pray, pray for the gift of love, because love is the only truth: it forgives everything, it serves everyone and it sees a brother in everyone. My children, my apostles, great is the trust that the Heavenly Father has given you through me, His handmaid, to help those who do not know Him, that they may reconcile with Him and follow Him. That is why I am teaching you love, because only if you have love will you be able to respond to Him. Again I am calling you to love your shepherds and to pray that, at this difficult time, the name of my Son may be glorified under their guidance. Thank you.

親愛的孩子們:
只要你們願意開放心靈,對我完全信賴,你們便會理解一切。領會我是用何等的愛來召喚你們,希望改變你們,使你們快樂;我渴望你們成為我聖子的信徒,並把祂的平安賜給你們,你們將領悟到我的母愛是何其偉大。
孩子們,為什麼要祈禱?因為藉著祈禱你們的信德便會增長,愛便會孕育出來,藉著愛即使是難以背負的十字架,也變得可以接受,因為你們並不是獨自去面對它,偕同聖子一起光榮天主的聖名。
祈禱吧,祈求愛的恩賜,因為愛是唯一的真理:愛能使人寬恕,使人服務他人,心中有愛便會視每一個人為自己的兄弟。
我的孩子,我的使徒,天父藉著我,祂的婢女,給予你們極大的信任,去幫助那些不認識祂的人,使他們與天主和好並跟隨祂。因此我要教導你們去愛,當你們有愛,你們才懂得回應天主。
在這困難的時刻,我再次呼喚你們愛你們的牧者,祈求在他們的帶領下,天主的聖名得受讚美。多謝你們。

主日講道 – 常年期第十八主日 (2013年8月4日)

恭讀聖路加福音 12:13-21

那時候,人群中有一個人,向耶穌說:「師父,請吩咐我的兄弟,與我分家吧!」
耶穌對他說:「人哪,誰派我做你們的判官,為你們分家呢?」
於是,耶穌對群眾說:「你們要謹慎,躲避一切貪婪,因為一個人縱然富裕,他的生命並不在於他的資產。」
耶穌對群眾講了一個比喻,說:「有一個富翁,他的田地出產豐富。他心裡想:我可怎麼辦呢?因為我已沒有地方,收藏我的物產。於是,他說:我要這樣做:我要拆毀我的倉庫,另建更大的,這樣就能夠收藏我的一切穀物和財產了。然後,我要對我的靈魂說:靈魂哪!你存有大量財物,足夠多年之用,你休息吧!吃喝宴樂吧!
「天主卻對他說:糊塗人哪!今夜就要收回你的靈魂,你所儲備的,將歸誰呢?
「那些只為自己累積財產,而不在天主前致富的人,也是如此。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 12:13-21

13 One of the multitude said to him, “Teacher, bid my brother divide the inheritance with me.” 14 But he said to him, “Man, who made me a judge or divider over you?” 15 And he said to them, “Take heed, and beware of all covetousness; for a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” 16 And he told them a parable, saying, “The land of a rich man brought forth plentifully; 17 and he thought to himself, `What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?’ 18 And he said, `I will do this: I will pull down my barns, and build larger ones; and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; take your ease, eat, drink, be merry.’ 20 But God said to him, `Fool! This night your soul is required of you; and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?’ 21 So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.
