神父講道 – 常年期第七週 (週六) (2014年3月1日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 10:13-16

那時候,有人給耶穌領來一些小孩子,要他撫摸他們。門徒卻斥責他們。耶穌見了,就生了氣,對他們說:「讓小孩到我跟前來,不要阻止他們,因為天主的國正屬於這樣的人。我實在告訴你們:誰若不像小孩子一樣接受天主的國,決不能進去。」耶穌遂抱起他們來,給他們覆手,祝福了他們。

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 10:13-16

13 And they were bringing children to him, that he might touch them; and the disciples rebuked them. 14 But when Jesus saw it he was indignant, and said to them, “Let the children come to me, do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of God. 15 Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” 16 And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands upon them.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

谷10:13-16  (讀經 ── 雅5:13-20  詠140)

有人給耶穌領來一些小孩子,要他撫摸他們;門徒卻斥責他們。耶穌見了,就生了氣,對他們說:「讓小孩子到我跟前來,不要阻止他們!因為天主的國正屬於這樣的人。我實在告訴你們:誰若不像小孩子一樣接受天主的國,決不能進去。」耶穌遂抱起他們來,給他們覆手,祝福了他們。

 

默 想

  • 對於門徒一些不正確的做法,耶穌也會生氣的。很有趣,耶穌反而同情罪婦、稅吏等人。
  • 所以,有時是我們這些基督徒做錯事、行錯路。尤其是現今的社會,以經濟掛帥,我們很容易受大眾價值觀的影響,自以為站在道德的高地。
  • 要怎樣才能做得更好?耶穌說要像小孩。當然不是今天香港的小孩,而是指無能力、弱小、謙遜、天真、無機心的小孩。
  • 我們覺得時常開會,開得最多會的人,最難像小孩。

神父講道 – 常年期第七週 (週五) (2014年2月28日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 10:1-12

那時候,耶穌來到猶太境界,約旦河的對岸,群眾又聚集到他那裏,他又照常教訓他們。有些法利塞人前來問耶穌:「許不許丈夫休妻?」意思是要意試探他。耶穌回答他們說:「梅瑟吩咐了你們什麼?」他們說:「梅瑟准許了寫休書休妻。」耶穌對他們說:「這是為了你們的心硬,他才給你們寫下了這條法令。但是,從創造之初,天主造了他們一男一女。為此,人要離開他的父母,依附自己的妻子,二人成為一體,以致他們再不是兩個,而是一體了。所以,天主所結合的,人不可拆散。」回到家裏,門徒又問他這事,耶穌對他們說:「誰若休自己的妻子而另娶,就是犯奸淫,辜負妻子;若妻子離棄自己的丈夫而另嫁,也是犯奸淫。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 10:1-12

1 And he left there and went to the region of Judea and beyond the Jordan, and crowds gathered to him again; and again, as his custom was, he taught them. 2 And Pharisees came up and in order to test him asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?” 3 He answered them, “What did Moses command you?” 4 They said, “Moses allowed a man to write a certificate of divorce, and to put her away.” 5 But Jesus said to them, “For your hardness of heart he wrote you this commandment. 6 But from the beginning of creation, `God made them male and female.’ 7 `For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, 8 and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. 9 What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder.” 10 And in the house the disciples asked him again about this matter. 11 And he said to them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another, commits adultery against her; 12 and if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

谷10:1-12  (讀經 ── 雅5:9-12  詠102)

耶穌來到猶太境界,約旦河的對岸,群眾又聚集到他那裡,他又照常教訓他們。有些法利塞人前來問耶穌:「許不許丈夫休妻?」意思是要意試探他。耶穌回答他們說:「梅瑟吩咐了你們什麼?」他們說:「梅瑟准許了寫休書休妻。」耶穌對他們說:「這是為了你們的心硬,他才給你們寫下了這條法令。但是,從創造之初,天主造了他們一男一女。為此,人要離開他的父母,依附自己的妻子,二人成為一體,以致他們再不是兩個,而是一體了。所以,天主所結合的,人不可拆散。」回到家裡,門徒又問他這事,耶穌對他們說:「誰若休自己的妻子而另娶,就是犯奸淫,辜負妻子;若妻子離棄自己的丈夫而另嫁,也是犯奸淫。」

 

默 想

  • 再一次,耶穌展示出他的要求是很高的,而天主教是跟足教導。其他如佛教、基督教都沒有這麼嚴格。
  • 這麼嚴格的要求,究竟是好還是不好?當然是好!有些人會這樣說。但為一些面對這方面的痛苦的人來說,這實在是一個不易的重擔。
  • 將來天主教在這方面會不會改變,我們不知道。但我們卻期望現今做這方面牧民的人士能多一點同理心。
  • 耶穌不是也沒有定那婦人的罪嗎?

神父講道 – 常年期第七週 (週四) (2014年2月27日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 9:41-50

那時,耶穌對他的門徒們說:「誰若因你們屬於基督,而給你們一杯水喝,我實在告訴你們:他決不會失掉他的賞報。誰若使這些信者中的一個小子跌倒,倒不如拿一塊驢拉的磨石,套住他的脖子上,投在海裏,為他更好。
「倘若你的手使你跌倒,砍掉它!你殘廢進入生命,比有兩隻手而往地獄裏,到那不滅的火裏去更好。倘若你的腳使你跌倒,砍掉它!你瘸腿進入生命,比有雙腳投入地獄裏更好。倘若你的眼使你跌倒,剜出它來!你一隻眼進入天國,比有兩隻眼被投入地獄裏更好,那裏的蟲子不死,火也不滅。因為所有的人都要用火醃起來。鹽是好的;但鹽若成了不鹹的,你們可用什麼去調和它?在你們中間當有鹽,又該彼此和平相處。」

—上主的話。

(7th Week in Ordinary Time – Thursday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 9:41-50

41 For truly, I say to you, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you bear the name of Christ, will by no means lose his reward.
42 “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung round his neck and he were thrown into the sea. 43 And if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go to hell, to the unquenchable fire.
45 And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life lame than with two feet to be thrown into hell. 47 And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out; it is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into hell, 48 where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched. 49 For every one will be salted with fire. 50 Salt is good; but if the salt has lost its saltness, how will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

谷9:41-50  (讀經 ── 雅5:1-6  詠48)

耶穌對他的門徒們說:「誰若因你們屬於基督,而給你們一杯水喝,我實在告訴你們:他決不會失掉他的賞報。誰若使這些信者中的一個小子跌倒,倒不如拿一塊驢拉的磨石,套住他的脖子上,投在海裡,為他更好。
「倘若你的手使你跌倒,砍掉它!你殘廢進入生命,比有兩隻手而往地獄裡,到那不滅的火裡去更好。倘若你的腳使你跌倒,砍掉它!你瘸腿進入生命,比有雙腳投入地獄裡更好。倘若你的眼使你跌倒,剜出它來!你一隻眼進入天國,比有兩隻眼被投入地獄裡更好,那裡的蟲子不死,火也不滅。因為所有的人都要用火醃起來。鹽是好的;但鹽若成了不鹹的,你們可用什麼去調和它?在你們中間當有鹽,又該彼此和平相處。」

 

默 想

  • 做基督徒是一種更難、更高的抉擇!正如耶穌說,鹽若成了不鹹的,可以怎辦?
  • 若基督徒沒有了基督徒的特質,哪是為了什麼?幹嗎還要有這身分?
  • 可能,有些朋友以一種買多一份保險的心態,多個神庇佑都是好的。
  • 若是這樣,就完全誤解了宗教的特質。無論是基督宗教、佛教或是其他宗教,都是要一頭栽進去,才能明白這宗教的核心意義。
