神父講道 – 常年期第十七週 (週一) (2014年7月28日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 13:31-35

那時,耶穌給群眾設一個比喻說:「天國好像一粒芥子,人把它撒在自己的田裏。它固然是各樣種子裏最小的,但當它長起來,卻比各種蔬菜都大,竟成了樹,什至天上的飛鳥也飛來,在它枝上棲息。」
他又給他們講了一個比喻:「天國好像酵母,女人取來藏在三斗麵裏,直到全部發了酵。」
耶穌用比喻給群眾講解了這一切,不用比喻就不給他們講什麼;這樣應驗了先知所說的話:「我要開口說比喻,要說出由創世以來隱密的事。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 13:31-35

31 Another parable he put before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his field; 32 it is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.” 33 He told them another parable. “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven which a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened.” 34 All this Jesus said to the crowds in parables; indeed he said nothing to them without a parable. 35 This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet: “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter what has been hidden since the foundation of the world.”

瑪13:31-35  (讀經 ── 耶13:1-11  詠:申32:18-21)

耶穌給群眾設一個比喻說:「天國好像一粒芥子,人把它撒在自己的田裡。它固然是各樣種子裡最小的,但當它長起來,卻比各種蔬菜都大,竟成了樹,甚至天上的飛鳥也飛來,在它枝上棲息。」
他又給他們講了一個比喻:「天國好像酵母,女人取來藏在三斗麵裡,直到全部發了酵。」
耶穌用比喻給群眾講解了這一切,不用比喻就不給他們講什麼;這樣應驗了先知所說的話:「我要開口說比喻,要說出由創世以來隱密的事。」

默 想

  • 耶穌用的比喻,正正說明了教會的發展歷史。
  • 初期教會,其實比芥子還要小,而且遭受迫害。但是,當她長大起來,便成大樹,我們也在她內棲息。
  • 每當在地上的天國代表——教會——腐化,天主會用祂的聖神,繼續把祂的酵母,放在教會中,使教會慢慢回轉。
  • 很多時候,祂的種子越小,發揮的力量越大。例如德蘭修女就是好例子。

主日講道 – 常年期第十七主日 (2014年7月27日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 13:44-52

那時候,耶穌對群眾說:「天國好像藏在地裡的寶貝;人找到了,就把它藏起來,高興地去賣掉他所有的一切,買了那塊地。
「天國好像一個尋找完美珍珠的商人;他一找到一顆寶貴的珍珠,就去賣掉他所有的一切,買了那顆珍珠。
「天國又好像撒在海裡的網,網羅各種的魚。網一滿了,人就拉上岸來,坐下,揀好的,放在器皿裡;壞的,扔在外面。在今世的終結時,也將如此:天使要出去,把惡人由義人中分開,把他們扔在火窯裡;在那裡要有哀號和切齒。
「這一切你們都明白了嗎?」
群眾說:「是的。」
耶穌就對他們說:「為此,凡成為天國門徒的經師,就好像一個家主,從他的寶庫裡,拿出新的和舊的寶貝。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 13:44-52

44 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up; then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. 45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, 46 who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it. 47 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net which was thrown into the sea and gathered fish of every kind; 48 when it was full, men drew it ashore and sat down and sorted the good into vessels but threw away the bad. 49 So it will be at the close of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous, 50 and throw them into the furnace of fire; there men will weep and gnash their teeth. 51 “Have you understood all this?” They said to him, “Yes.” 52 And he said to them, “Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.
