神父講道 – 常年期第二十三週 (週三) (2013年9月11日)

恭讀聖路加福音 6:20-26

那時,耶穌舉目望著自己的門徒說:「你們貧窮的是有福的,因為天主的國是你們的。你們現今饑餓的是有福的,因為你們將得飽飫。你們現今哭泣的是有福的,因為你們將要歡笑。幾時為了人子的緣故,人惱恨你們,並棄絕你們,並且以你們的名字為可惡的,而加以辱罵詛咒,你們才是有福的。在那一天,你們歡喜踴躍吧!看,你們的賞報在天上是豐厚的,因為他們的祖先也同樣對待了先知。但是,你們富有的是有禍的,因為你們已經獲得了安慰。你們現今飽飫的是有禍的,因為你們將要饑餓。你們現今歡笑的是有禍的,因為你們將要哀慟哭泣。幾時眾人都誇讚你們,你們是有禍的,因為他們的祖先也同樣對待了假先知。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 6:20-26

20 And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said: “Blessed are you poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. 21 “Blessed are you that hunger now, for you shall be satisfied. “Blessed are you that weep now, for you shall laugh. 22 “Blessed are you when men hate you, and when they exclude you and revile you, and cast out your name as evil, on account of the Son of man! 23 Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven; for so their fathers did to the prophets. 24 “But woe to you that are rich, for you have received your consolation. 25 “Woe to you that are full now, for you shall hunger. “Woe to you that laugh now, for you shall mourn and weep. 26 “Woe to you, when all men speak well of you, for so their fathers did to the false prophets.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

路6:20-26  (讀經 ── 哥3:1-11  詠145)

耶穌舉目望著自己的門徒說:「你們貧窮的是有福的,因為天主的國是你們的。你們現今饑餓的是有福的,因為你們將得飽飫。你們現今哭泣的是有福的,因為你們將要歡笑。幾時為了人子的緣故,人惱恨你們,並棄絕你們,並且以你們的名字為可惡的,而加以辱罵詛咒,你們才是有福的。在那一天,你們歡喜踴躍吧!看,你們的賞報在天上是豐厚的,因為他們的祖先也同樣對待了先知。但是,你們富有的是有禍的,因為你們已經獲得了安慰。你們現今飽飫的是有禍的,因為你們將要饑餓。你們現今歡笑的是有禍的,因為你們將要哀慟哭泣。幾時眾人都誇讚你們,你們是有禍的,因為他們的祖先也同樣對待了假先知。」

默 想

  • 又與「划到深處」的想法相呼應!貧窮、饑餓、哭泣、被惱恨、被棄絕、被辱罵……,怎會是好東西!
  • 但觀乎生命更深處,這些在基督內,亦可成為福樂。
  • 若有天你也經驗到,你自會明白。
  • 真福八端的精神,需要我們窮一生,去品嚐、反思、經驗的。
  • 最近高夏芳修女就寫了一本關於真福八端的書,可讀性甚高,大家不妨細讀,吸收精華,嘗試活出真福八端。
