神父講道 – 四旬期第三週 (週一) (2014年3月24日)

恭讀聖路加福音 4:24-30

耶穌來到納匝肋,會堂裡向人們說:我實在告訴你們:沒有一個先知在本鄉受悅納的。」我據實告訴你們:在厄里亞時代,天閉塞了三年零六個月,遍地起了大饑荒,在以色列原有許多寡婦,厄里亞並沒有被派到她們中一個那裡去,而只到了漆冬匝爾法特的一個寡婦那裡。在厄里叟先知時代,在以色列有許多癩病人,他們中沒有一個得潔淨的,只有敘利亞的納哈曼。」在會堂中聽見這話的人,都忿怒填胸,起來把他趕出城外,領他到了山崖上——他們的城是建在山上的——要把他推下去。他卻由他們中間過去走了。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 4:24-30

24 And he said, “Truly, I say to you, no prophet is acceptable in his own country. 25 But in truth, I tell you, there were many widows in Israel in the days of Eli’jah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when there came a great famine over all the land; 26 and Eli’jah was sent to none of them but only to Zar’ephath, in the land of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. 27 And there were many lepers in Israel in the time of the prophet Eli’sha; and none of them was cleansed, but only Na’aman the Syrian.” 28 When they heard this, all in the synagogue were filled with wrath. 29 And they rose up and put him out of the city, and led him to the brow of the hill on which their city was built, that they might throw him down headlong. 30 But passing through the midst of them he went away.

路4:24-30  (讀經 ── 列下5:1-15  詠42)

耶穌來到納匝肋,會堂裡向人們說:我實在告訴你們:沒有一個先知在本鄉受悅納的。」我據實告訴你們:在厄里亞時代,天閉塞了三年零六個月,遍地起了大饑荒,在以色列原有許多寡婦,厄里亞並沒有被派到她們中一個那裡去,而只到了漆冬匝爾法特的一個寡婦那裡。在厄里叟先知時代,在以色列有許多癩病人,他們中沒有一個得潔淨的,只有敘利亞的納哈曼。」在會堂中聽見這話的人,都忿怒填胸,起來把他趕出城外,領他到了山崖上——他們的城是建在山上的——要把他推下去。他卻由他們中間過去走了。」

 

默 想

  • 我們去年朝聖時,到過這山崖,看到人們要推耶穌落山的地點。
  • 有一個團友反省說,以他時常批判人的性格,他很可能會是推耶穌下山的其中一個。
  • 他說,所以要再謹慎點,因為是真真實實地傷害了人。
  • 有時,我們可能會傷害了「耶穌」,自己也不知道。

主日講道 – 四旬期第三主日 (2014年3月23日)

恭讀聖若望福音 4:5-42

那時候,耶穌來到撒瑪黎雅的一座城,名叫息哈爾,靠近雅各伯給他兒子若瑟的莊田;在那裡有「雅各伯井」。耶穌走累了,就順便坐在井旁;那時,大約是第六時辰。
有一個撒瑪黎雅婦人來打水。耶穌向她說:「請給我一點水喝!」那時,耶穌的門徒都到城裡,去買食物。
那撒瑪黎雅婦人就回答說:「你既是猶太人,怎麼向我一個撒瑪黎雅婦人要水喝呢?」原來,猶太人和撒瑪黎雅人一向不相往來。
耶穌回答那婦人說:「如果你知道天主的恩賜,並知道向你說『給我水喝』的人是誰,你或許早就會求他,而他也早就賜給了你活水。」
那婦人問說:「先生,你連打水器也沒有,而井又深,你從那裡取得那活水呢?難道你比我們的祖先雅各伯還大嗎?他留給了我們這口井;他和他的子孫,以及他的牲畜,都曾喝過這井裡的水。」
耶穌回答說:「凡喝這水的,還要再渴;但誰若喝了我賜給他的水,他將永遠不渴;並且我賜給他的水,將在他內,成為湧到永生的水泉。」
婦人說:「先生,請給我這水吧!免得我再渴,也免得我再來這裡打水。」
耶穌向那婦人說:「去,叫你的丈夫,再回到這裡來。」
那婦人回答說:「我沒有丈夫。」
耶穌說:「你說:我沒有丈夫,正對;因為你曾有過五個丈夫,而你現在有的,也不是你的丈夫。你說得真對。」
婦人向耶穌說:「先生,我看你是個先知。我們的祖先一向在這座山上,朝拜天主,你們卻說:應該朝拜的地方,是在耶路撒冷。」
耶穌回答說:「女人,你相信我吧!到了時候,你們將不在這座山,也不在耶路撒冷,朝拜父。你們朝拜你們所不認識的,我們朝拜我們所認識的,因為救恩出自猶太人。然而,時候要到,且現在就是,那些真正朝拜的人,將以心神以真理朝拜父,因為父就是尋找這樣朝拜他的人。天主是神,朝拜他的人,應當以心神以真理去朝拜他。」
婦人說:「我知道默西亞(意即基督)要來;他一來了,必會告訴我們一切。」
耶穌向那婦人說:「同你談話的我就是。」
正在這時,耶穌的門徒回來了,他們就驚奇耶穌同一個婦人談話;但是,沒有人問:「你要什麼?」或:「你同她談論什麼?」
於是,那婦人放下自己的水罐,往城裡去,向人說:「你們來看!有一個人,說出了我所做過的一切事;莫非他就是默西亞嗎?」
於是,眾人都從城裡出來,到耶穌那裡去。
這其間,門徒請求耶穌說:「辣彼,吃吧!」
耶穌卻回答說:「我已有食物吃了,那是你們所不知道的。」
門徒便彼此問說:「難道有人給他送來了食物嗎?」
耶穌向門徒說:「我的食物,就是承行派遣我者的旨意,完成他的工程。
「你們不是說:還有四個月,才到收穫期嗎?看,我對你們說:舉目看看這些田地,莊稼已經發白,可以收割了。收割的人已領到工資,且為永生收集了果實,如此,撒種的和收割的,將一同喜歡。正如俗語所說的:撒種的是一人,收割的是另一人。我派遣你們,在你們沒有勞動過的地方,去收割;別人勞動了,而你們去收穫他們勞苦的成果。」
城裡有許多撒瑪黎雅人,信從了耶穌,因為那婦人作證說:「他向我說出了我所做過的一切。」這樣,那些撒瑪黎雅人,來到耶穌面前,請求耶穌在他們那裡住下;耶穌就在那裡住了兩天。還有更多的人,因為耶穌的宣講,而信從了耶穌。他們向那婦人說:「現在我們信,不是因為你的話,而是因為我們親自聽見了,並知道:他確實是世界的救主。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 4:5-42

5 So he came to a city of Samar’ia, called Sy’char, near the field that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. 6 Jacob’s well was there, and so Jesus, wearied as he was with his journey, sat down beside the well. It was about the sixth hour. 7 There came a woman of Samar’ia to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give me a drink.” 8 For his disciples had gone away into the city to buy food. 9 The Samaritan woman said to him, “How is it that you, a Jew, ask a drink of me, a woman of Samar’ia?” For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans. 10 Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, `Give me a drink,’ you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.” 11 The woman said to him, “Sir, you have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep; where do you get that living water? 12 Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, and his sons, and his cattle?” 13 Jesus said to her, “Every one who drinks of this water will thirst again, 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst; the water that I shall give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” 15 The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw.” 16 Jesus said to her, “Go, call your husband, and come here.”
17 The woman answered him, “I have no husband.” Jesus said to her, “You are right in saying, `I have no husband’; 18 for you have had five husbands, and he whom you now have is not your husband; this you said truly.” 19 The woman said to him, “Sir, I perceive that you are a prophet. 20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain; and you say that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.” 21 Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. 22 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for such the Father seeks to worship him. 24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” 25 The woman said to him, “I know that Messiah is coming (he who is called Christ); when he comes, he will show us all things.” 26 Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am he.”
27 Just then his disciples came. They marveled that he was talking with a woman, but none said, “What do you wish?” or, “Why are you talking with her?” 28 So the woman left her water jar, and went away into the city, and said to the people, 29 “Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did. Can this be the Christ?” 30 They went out of the city and were coming to him.
31 Meanwhile the disciples besought him, saying, “Rabbi, eat.” 32 But he said to them, “I have food to eat of which you do not know.” 33 So the disciples said to one another, “Has any one brought him food?” 34 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me, and to accomplish his work. 35 Do you not say, `There are yet four months, then comes the harvest’? I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see how the fields are already white for harvest. 36 He who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together. 37 For here the saying holds true, `One sows and another reaps.’ 38 I sent you to reap that for which you did not labor; others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.” 39 Many Samaritans from that city believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me all that I ever did.” 40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they asked him to stay with them; and he stayed there two days. 41 And many more believed because of his word, and they said to the woman, “We no longer believe because of your word; for we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this is truly the savior of the world.”
