神父講道 – 常年期第十一週 (週四) (2014年6月19日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 6:7-15

那時候,耶穌對他的門徒說:「你們祈禱時,不要嘮嘮叨叨,如同外邦人一樣,因為他們以為只要多言,便可獲得蒙允。你們不要跟他們一樣,因為你們的父,在你求他以前,已知道你們需要什麼。所以,你們應當這樣祈禱:我們在天的父!願你的名被尊為聖,願你的國來臨,願你的旨意承行於地,如在天上一樣!我們的日用糧,求你今天賜給我們;寬免我們的罪債,猶如我們也寬免得罪我們的人;不要讓我們陷入誘惑,但救我們免於兇惡。因為你們若寬免別人的過犯,你們的天父也必寬免你們的;但你們若不寬免別人的,你們的父也必不寬免你們的過犯。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 6:7-15

7 “And in praying do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. 9 Pray then like this: Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.11 Give us this day our daily bread; 12 And forgive us our debts, As we also have forgiven our debtors; 13 And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. 14 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father also will forgive you; 15 but if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

神父講道 – 常年期第十一週 (週三) (2014年6月18日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 6:1-6,16-18

那時候,耶穌對他的門徒說:「你們應當心,不要在人前行你們的仁義,為叫他們看見;若是這樣,你們在天父之前,就沒有賞報了。所以,當你施捨時,不可在你前面吹號,如同假善人在會堂及街市上所行的一樣,為受人們的稱讚;我實在告訴你們,他們已獲得了他們的賞報。當你施捨時,不要叫你左手知道你右手所行的,好使你的施捨隱而不露,你父在暗中看見,必要報答你。當你祈禱時,不要如同假善人一樣,愛在會堂及十字街頭立著祈禱,為顯示給人;我實在告訴你們,他們已獲得了他們的賞報。至於你,當你祈禱時,要進入你的內室,關上門,向你在暗中之父祈禱;你的父在暗中看見,必要報答你。幾時你們禁食,不要如同假善人一樣,面帶愁容;因為他們苦喪著臉,是為叫人看出他們禁食來。我實在告訴你們,他們已獲得了他們的賞報。至於你,當你禁食時,要用油抹你的頭,洗你的臉,不要叫人看出你禁食來,但叫你那在暗中之父看見;你的父在暗中看見,必將報答你。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 6:1-6, 16-18

1 “Beware of practicing your piety before men in order to be seen by them; for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven. 2 “Thus, when you give alms, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by men. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 3 But when you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your alms may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
5 “And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by men. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 6 But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
16 “And when you fast, do not look dismal, like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fasting may be seen by men. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 17 But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, 18 that your fasting may not be seen by men but by your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.

瑪6:7-15  (讀經 ── 德48:1-15  詠97)

耶穌對他的門徒說:「你們祈禱時,不要嘮嘮叨叨,如同外邦人一樣,因為他們以為只要多言,便可獲得蒙允。你們不要跟他們一樣,因為你們的父,在你求他以前,已知道你們需要什麼。所以,你們應當這樣祈禱:我們在天的父!願你的名被尊為聖,願你的國來臨,願你的旨意承行於地,如在天上一樣!我們的日用糧,求你今天賜給我們;寬免我們的罪債,猶如我們也寬免得罪我們的人;不要讓我們陷入誘惑,但救我們免於兇惡。因為你們若寬免別人的過犯,你們的天父也必寬免你們的;但你們若不寬免別人的,你們的父也必不寬免你們的過犯。」

 

默 想

  • 不是多言,便可獲得蒙允。那麼,要怎樣祈求,才能蒙允?
  • 原來不是祈禱的方法。因為祈禱不是為求東西,祈禱是和天主建立關係。
  • 我們過一個健康的教友生活,當天主覺得我們需要什麼,祂便會給我們。
  • 所以,重點是我們是否一個健康的教友?若是,天主給我們什麼,我們也會接受。
