神父講道 – 常年期第二十一週 (週五) (2013年8月30日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 25:1-13

那時候,耶穌對他的門徒說:「天國好比十個童女,拿著自己的燈出去迎接新郎。他們中五個是糊塗的,五個是明智的。糊塗的拿了燈,卻沒有隨身帶油;而明智的拿了燈,並且在壺裏帶了油。因為新郎延遲﹐她們都打盹睡著了。半夜有人喊說﹕新郎來了﹐你們出來迎接吧!那些童女遂都起來,裝備她們的燈。糊塗的對明智的說:把你們的油分些給我們吧!因為我們的燈也要滅了!明智的答說:怕為我們和你們都不夠,你們更好到賣油的地方去,為自己買吧!她們去買的時候,新郎到了;那準備好了的,就同他進去,共赴婚宴;門遂關上了。末後,其餘的童女也來了,說:主啊!主啊!給我們開門吧!他卻答說:我實在告訴你們:我不認識你們。所以你們該醒寤,因為你們不知道那日子,也不知道那時辰。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 25:1-13

1 “Then the kingdom of heaven shall be compared to ten maidens who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3 For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them; 4 but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. 5 As the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. 6 But at midnight there was a cry, `Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ 7 Then all those maidens rose and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said to the wise, `Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ 9 But the wise replied, `Perhaps there will not be enough for us and for you; go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.’ 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast; and the door was shut. 11 Afterward the other maidens came also, saying, `Lord, lord, open to us.’ 12 But he replied, `Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ 13 Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.

默主哥耶聖母訊息 (2013年8月25日)

(Message of OL to Marija on Aug 25, 13)
“Dear children! Also today, the Most High is giving me the grace to be with you and to lead you towards conversion. Every day I am sowing and am calling you to conversion, that you may be prayer, peace, love – the grain that by dying will give birth a hundredfold. I do not desire for you, dear children, to have to repent for everything that you could have done but did not want to. Therefore, little children, again, with enthusiasm say: ‘I want to be a sign to others.’ Thank you for having responded to my call. ”
親愛的孩子們:
今天,至高者天主賜予我恩典,使我可與你們一起並引領你們走向皈依。我每天都在播種,召喚你們轉化,那樣你們便會成為祈禱、和平及充滿愛心的人,正如麥子要經過死才能結出百倍的子粒。
親愛的孩子,我不需要你們為每一件該做卻不願意去做的事感到後悔。但希望你們能再一次滿懷熱忱的說:「我要成為別人效法的記號。」多謝你們回應我的召叫。

瑪25:1-13
(讀經──得前4:1-8 詠97)

耶穌對他的門徒說:「天國好比十個童女,拿著自己的燈出去迎接新郎。他們中五個是糊塗的,五個是明智的。糊塗的拿了燈,卻沒有隨身帶油;而明智的拿了燈,並且在壺裡帶了油。因為新郎延遲,她們都打盹睡著了。半夜有人喊說:新郎來了,你們出來迎接吧!那些童女遂都起來,裝備她們的燈。糊塗的對明智的說:把你們的油分些給我們吧!因為我們的燈也要滅了!明智的答說:怕為我們和你們都不夠,你們更好到賣油的地方去,為自己買吧!她們去買的時候,新郎到了;那準備好了的,就同他進去,共赴婚宴;門遂關上了。末後,其餘的童女也來了,說:主啊!主啊!給我們開門吧!他卻答說:我實在告訴你們:我不認識你們。所以你們該醒寤,因為你們不知道那日子,也不知道那時辰。」

默 想

  • 今天我們該「醒寤」了!但當然可惜得很,我們都在沉睡中。經文中的童女並不是不認識或不信靠新郎,而是沒有「醒寤」而已。
  • 他朝我們可能就是面對這處境,我們不是不信耶穌,只不過沒有「醒寤」而已。
  • 「醒寤」為我們天主教來說是一個很重要的方向,因為我們被召是為成聖。醒寤就是成聖的方法。
  • 只要我們醒寤,我們就會發現真正的自己,同時也會發現自己是在天主的光照下,走一條成聖之路。

神父講道 – 聖若翰洗者殉道 (紀念) (週四) (2013年8月29日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 6:17-29

那時候,黑落德為了他兄弟斐理伯的妻子黑落狄雅的原故,因為他娶了她為妻,曾遣人逮捕了若翰,把他押在監裏;因為若翰曾對黑落德說:「你不可佔有你兄弟的妻子。」黑落狄雅便懷恨在心,希望殺害他,只是不能,因為黑落德敬畏若翰,知道他是一個正義聖潔的人,曾保全了他;幾時聽他講道,就甚覺困惑,但仍樂意聽他。
好機會的日子到了:當黑落德在自己的生日上,為自己的重要官員、軍官和加里肋亞的顯要,設了筵席的時候,那個黑落狄雅的女兒便進來跳舞,獲得了黑落德和同席者的歡心。王便對女孩子說:「你要什麼,向我求吧!我必賜給你!」又對她發誓說:「無論你求我什麼,就是我王國的一半,我也必定給你!」她便出去問她的母親說:「我該求什麼?」她母親答說:「洗者若翰的頭。」她便立刻進去,到王面前要求說:「我要你立刻把洗者若翰的頭,放在盤子裏給我!」王遂十分憂鬱;但為了誓言和同席的人,不願對她食言,王遂即差遣衛兵,吩咐把若翰的頭送來。衛兵便去,在監裏斬了若翰的頭,把他的頭放在盤子裏送來,交給了那女孩子,那女孩子便交給了自己的母親。若翰的門徒聽說了,就來領去了他的屍身,把他安葬在墳墓裏。

(Memorial of the Passion of Saint John the Baptist)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 6:17-29

17 For Herod had sent and seized John, and bound him in prison for the sake of Hero’di-as, his brother Philip’s wife; because he had married her. 18 For John said to Herod, “It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife.” 19 And Hero’di-as had a grudge against him, and wanted to kill him. But she could not, 20 for Herod feared John, knowing that he was a righteous and holy man, and kept him safe. When he heard him, he was much perplexed; and yet he heard him gladly. 21 But an opportunity came when Herod on his birthday gave a banquet for his courtiers and officers and the leading men of Galilee. 22 For when Hero’di-as’ daughter came in and danced, she pleased Herod and his guests; and the king said to the girl, “Ask me for whatever you wish, and I will grant it.” 23 And he vowed to her, “Whatever you ask me, I will give you, even half of my kingdom.” 24 And she went out, and said to her mother, “What shall I ask?” And she said, “The head of John the baptizer.” 25 And she came in immediately with haste to the king, and asked, saying, “I want you to give me at once the head of John the Baptist on a platter.” 26 And the king was exceedingly sorry; but because of his oaths and his guests he did not want to break his word to her. 27 And immediately the king sent a soldier of the guard and gave orders to bring his head. He went and beheaded him in the prison, 28 and brought his head on a platter, and gave it to the girl; and the girl gave it to her mother. 29 When his disciples heard of it, they came and took his body, and laid it in a tomb.
