神父講道 – 常年期第十六週 (週四) (2014年7月24日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 13:10-17

那時候,門徒前來對耶穌說:「為什麼你用比喻對群眾講話?」耶穌回答他們說:「因為天國的奧妙是給你們知道,並不是給他們知道。因為凡有的,還要給他,使他富足;但是,凡沒有的,連他所有的,也要由他奪去。為此,我用比喻對他們講話,是因為他們看,卻看不見;聽,卻聽不見,也不瞭解;這樣為他們正應驗了依撒意亞的預言,說:『你們聽是聽,但不瞭解;看是看,但不明白。因為這百姓的心遲鈍了,耳朵難以聽見;他們閉了眼睛,免得眼睛看見,耳朵聽見,心裏瞭解而轉變,而要我醫好他們。』你們的眼睛有福,因為看得見:你們的耳朵有福,因為聽得見。我實在告訴你們:有許多先知和義人,想看你們所看見的,而沒有看到;想聽你們所聽見的,而沒有聽到。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 13:10-17

10 Then the disciples came and said to him, “Why do you speak to them in parables?” 11 And he answered them, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. 12 For to him who has will more be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away. 13 This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. 14 With them indeed is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah which says: `You shall indeed hear but never understand, and you shall indeed see but never perceive. 15 For this people’s heart has grown dull, and their ears are heavy of hearing, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should perceive with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and turn for me to heal them.’ 16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear. 17 Truly, I say to you, many prophets and righteous men longed to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

瑪13:10-17  (讀經 ── 耶2:1-3, 7-8, 12-13  詠35)

門徒前來對耶穌說:「為什麼你用比喻對群眾講話?」耶穌回答他們說:「因為天國的奧妙是給你們知道,並不是給他們知道。因為凡有的,還要給他,使他富足;但是,凡沒有的,連他所有的,也要由他奪去。為此,我用比喻對他們講話,是因為他們看,卻看不見;聽,卻聽不見,也不瞭解;這樣為他們正應驗了依撒意亞的預言,說:『你們聽是聽,但不瞭解;看是看,但不明白。因為這百姓的心遲鈍了,耳朵難以聽見;他們閉了眼睛,免得眼睛看見,耳朵聽見,心裡瞭解而轉變,而要我醫好他們。』你們的眼睛有福,因為看得見:你們的耳朵有福,因為聽得見。我實在告訴你們:有許多先知和義人,想看你們所看見的,而沒有看到;想聽你們所聽見的,而沒有聽到。」

默 想

  • 耶穌說,他同代的人比許多先知義人有福,因為他們能見能聽。那麼,我們今天的人有福還是耶穌同代的人有福?
  • 我的意見是,我們有福!因為我們是至現時為止,有最多資料的時代,最多專家的時代,專家們根據資料,為我們分析,使我們最全面了解天主的計劃。
  • 例如,耶穌和保祿的言論中,都表達出耶穌很快會回來,但事實證明,二千年了,還未實現。專家們從這等待中,嘗試去探究所謂主再來是什麼意思。
  • 現在,我們還未有確實答案。所以,五百年後的人,會比我們有福,因為他們會比我們又行近一步。
