神父講道 – 常年期第二十九週 (週四) (2013年10月24日)

恭讀聖路加福音 12:49-53

那時候,耶穌對門徒說:「我來是為把火投在地上,我是多麼切望願它已經燃燒起來!我有一種應受的洗禮,我是如何焦急,直到它得以完成!你們以為我來是給地上送和平嗎?不,我告訴你們:而是來送分裂。因為從今以後,一家五口的,將要分裂:三個反對兩個,兩個反對三個。他們將要分裂:父親反對兒子,兒子反對父親;母親反對女兒,女兒反對母親;婆母反對兒媳,兒媳反對婆母。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 12:49-53

49 “I came to cast fire upon the earth; and would that it were already kindled! 50 I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how I am constrained until it is accomplished! 51 Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division; 52 for henceforth in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three; 53 they will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against her mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.”

路12:49-53  (讀經 ── 羅6:19-23  詠1)

耶穌對門徒說:「我來是為把火投在地上,我是多麼切望願它已經燃燒起來!我有一種應受的洗禮,我是如何焦急,直到它得以完成!你們以為我來是給地上送和平嗎?不,我告訴你們:而是來送分裂。因為從今以後,一家五口的,將要分裂:三個反對兩個,兩個反對三個。他們將要分裂:父親反對兒子,兒子反對父親;母親反對女兒,女兒反對母親;婆母反對兒媳,兒媳反對婆母。」

 

默 想

  • 那火是指煉淨人靈的福音訊息,我們是否準備好接受那福音的洗煉?福音不單止是道理,其實是主耶穌的生命。
  • 耶穌指他應受的「洗禮」是將要承受的苦難。他明白,自己的臨在,令心硬的人滿不自在,尤其是他那時代的經師和法利塞人,他們根本未能接受耶穌就是那要來的那一位──默西亞。
  • 真正接受耶穌基督,為人是個挑戰,因為必會遇到基督的十字架,也遇到自己的十字架。背起自己的十字架,需要一顆決心和倚靠上主的恩寵。

神父講道 – 常年期第二十九週 (週三) (2013年10月23日)

恭讀聖路加福音 12:39-48

那時候,耶穌對門徒說:「你們應該明白這一點:如果家主知道盜賊何時要來,【他必要醒寤】,決不容許自己的房屋被挖穿。你們也應當準備,因為在你們料想不到的時辰,人子就來了。」
伯多祿說:「主!你講的這個比喻,是為我們呢?還是為眾人?」主說:「究竟誰是那忠信及精明的管家?主人派他管理自己的家僕,按時配給食糧。主人來時,看見他如此行事,那僕人才是有福的。我實在告訴你們:主人必要委派他,管理自己的一切財產。如果那個僕人心裏說:我的主人必然遲來;他便開始拷打僕婢,也吃也喝也醉酒。在他想不到的日子,不知覺的時刻,那僕人的主人就會來到,必要剷除他,使他與不信者遭受同樣的命運。那知道主人的旨意,而偏不準備,或竟不奉行他旨意的僕人,必然要多受拷打;那不知道而做了應受拷打之事的,要少受挨打。給誰的多,向誰要的也多;交託誰的多,向誰索取的也格外多。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 12:39-48

39 But know this, that if the householder had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have left his house to be broken into. 40 You also must be ready; for the Son of man is coming at an unexpected hour.” 41 Peter said, “Lord, are you telling this parable for us or for all?” 42 And the Lord said, “Who then is the faithful and wise steward, whom his master will set over his household, to give them their portion of food at the proper time? 43 Blessed is that servant whom his master when he comes will find so doing. 44 Truly, I say to you, he will set him over all his possessions. 45 But if that servant says to himself, `My master is delayed in coming,’ and begins to beat the menservants and the maidservants, and to eat and drink and get drunk, 46 the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know, and will punish him, and put him with the unfaithful. 47 And that servant who knew his master’s will, but did not make ready or act according to his will, shall receive a severe beating. 48 But he who did not know, and did what deserved a beating, shall receive a light beating. Every one to whom much is given, of him will much be required; and of him to whom men commit much they will demand the more.

—The Gospel of the Lord.
