神父講道 – 常年期第二十一週 (週六) (2014年8月30日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 25:14-30

那時,耶穌對門徒講了這個比喻:「天國有如一個要遠行的人,將自己的僕人叫來,把財產託付給他們;按照他們的才能,一個給了五個『塔冷通』,一個給了兩個,一個給了一個;然後動身走了。那領了五個『塔冷通』的,立刻去用來營業,另外賺了五個。同樣,那領了兩個的,也賺了另外兩個。但是那領了一個的,卻去掘開地,把主人的銀子藏了。過了多時,僕人的主人回來了,便與他們算賬。那領了五個『塔冷通』的上前來,呈上另外五個『塔冷通』說:主啊!你曾交給我五個『塔冷通』,看,我賺了另外五個『塔冷通』。主人對他說:好!善良忠信的僕人,你既在少許事上忠信,我必委派你管理許多大事:進入你主人的福樂吧!那領了兩個『塔冷通』的也前來說:主啊!你曾交給我兩個『塔冷通』,看,我賺了另外兩個『塔冷通』。主人對他說:好!善良忠信的僕人!你既在小許事上忠信,我必委派你管理許多大事:進入你主人的福樂吧!隨後,那領了一個『塔冷通』的也前來說:主啊!我原知道你是個刻薄的人,在你沒有下種的地方收割,在你沒有散布的地方聚斂。因為我害怕,所以我去把你的『塔冷通』藏在地下;看,你的仍還給你。主人回答說:可惡懶惰的僕人!你既知道:我在沒有下種的地方收割,在沒有散布的地方聚斂;那麼你就該把我的銀子,交給錢莊裏的人,待我回來時,把的的連本帶利取回。所以,你們把這個『塔冷通』從他手中奪過來,給那有了十個『塔冷通』的,因為凡是有的,還要給他,叫他富裕;那沒有的,連他所有的,也要由他手中奪去。至於這無用的僕人,你們把他丟在外面黑暗中,在那裏必有哀號和切齒。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 25:14-30

14 “For it will be as when a man going on a journey called his servants and entrusted to them his property; 15 to one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away. 16 He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them; and he made five talents more. 17 So also, he who had the two talents made two talents more. 18 But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master’s money. 19 Now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them. 20 And he who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five talents more, saying, `Master, you delivered to me five talents; here I have made five talents more.’ 21 His master said to him, `Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a little, I will set you over much; enter into the joy of your master.’ 22 And he also who had the two talents came forward, saying, `Master, you delivered to me two talents; here I have made two talents more.’ 23 His master said to him, `Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a little, I will set you over much; enter into the joy of your master.’ 24 He also who had received the one talent came forward, saying, `Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not winnow; 25 so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.’ 26 But his master answered him, `You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sowed, and gather where I have not winnowed? 27 Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest. 28 So take the talent from him, and give it to him who has the ten talents. 29 For to every one 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. 30 And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.’

—The Gospel of the Lord.

瑪25:14-30  (格前1:26-31  詠33)

耶穌對門徒講了這個比喻:「天國有如一個要遠行的人,將自己的僕人叫來,把財產託付給他們;按照他們的才能,一個給了五個『塔冷通』,一個給了兩個,一個給了一個;然後動身走了。
「那領了五個『塔冷通』的,立刻去用來營業,另外賺了五個。同樣,那領了兩個的,也賺了另外兩個。但是那領了一個的,卻去掘開地,把主人的銀子藏了。
「過了多時,僕人的主人回來了,便與他們算賬。那領了五個『塔冷通』的上前來,呈上另外五個『塔冷通』說:主啊!你曾交給我五個『塔冷通』,看,我賺了另外五個『塔冷通』。主人對他說:好!善良忠信的僕人,你既在少許事上忠信,我必委派你管理許多大事:進入你主人的福樂吧!那領了兩個『塔冷通』的也前來說:主啊!你曾交給我兩個『塔冷通』,看,我賺了另外兩個『塔冷通』。主人對他說:好!善良忠信的僕人!你既在小許事上忠信,我必委派你管理許多大事:進入你主人的福樂吧!隨後,那領了一個『塔冷通』的也前來說:主啊!我原知道你是個刻薄的人,在你沒有下種的地方收割,在你沒有散布的地方聚斂。因為我害怕,所以我去把你的『塔冷通』藏在地下;看,你的仍還給你。
「主人回答說:可惡懶惰的僕人!你既知道:我在沒有下種的地方收割,在沒有散布的地方聚斂;那麼你就該把我的銀子,交給錢莊裡的人,待我回來時,把我的連本帶利取回。所以,你們把這個『塔冷通』從他手中奪過來,給那有了十個『塔冷通』的,因為凡是有的,還要給他,叫他富裕;那沒有的,連他所有的,也要由他手中奪去。至於這無用的僕人,你們把他丟在外面黑暗中,在那裡必有哀號和切齒。」

默 想

  • 我們有沒有善用自己的塔冷通(才能)呢?或許有人會問,我有什麼塔冷通呢?
  • 李白有詩句說:「天生我才必有用」,指才能必可發揮。但在今天經文,卻不單單指才能。
  • 今天的經文,是指我們的召命。每人在世上都有一召命,有人可能找到而成就了自己,也幫助了他人。有人可能不願回應,只以賺錢為人生目標,白白失去生命應有的價值。
  • 奧斯定說,只有在天主懷中,我們的心靈才得安憩。怎樣才算在主懷中?就是回應了召命!
