神父講道 – 常年期第二十五週 (週一) (2014年9月22日)

恭讀聖路加福音 8:16-18

那時候,耶穌對群眾說:「沒有人點上燈,用器皿遮蓋住,或放在床底下的,而是放在燈台上,為叫進來的人看見光明;因為沒有隱藏的事,不被顯露的;沒有秘密的事,不被知道而公開出來的。所以,你們應當留心要怎樣聽:因為凡有的,還要給他:凡沒有的,連他自以為有的,也要從他奪去。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 8:16-18

16 “No one after lighting a lamp covers it with a vessel, or puts it under a bed, but puts it on a stand, that those who enter may see the light. 17 For nothing is hid that shall not be made manifest, nor anything secret that shall not be known and come to light. 18 Take heed then how you hear; for to him who has will more be given, and from him who has not, even what he thinks that he has will be taken away.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

主日講道 – 常年期第二十五主日 (2014年9月21日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 20:1-16

那時候,耶穌給門徒講了這個比喻,說:
「天國好像一個家主,清晨出去,為自己的葡萄園僱用工人。他與工人議定:一天一個『德納』,就派他們到葡萄園去。
「約在第三時辰,家主又出去,看見還有些人在街市閒立著,就對他們說:你們也到我的葡萄園去吧!凡照公義,該給的,我必給你們。他們就去了。
「約在第六和第九時辰,家主又出去,也照樣做了。
「約在第十一時辰,家主又出去,看見還有些人站在那裡,就對他們說:為什麼你們站在這裡,整天無所事事?他們對家主說:因為沒有人僱用我們。家主對他們說:你們也到我的葡萄園去吧!
「到了晚上,葡萄園的主人,對他的管工說:你叫工人來,發給他們工資,由最後的開始,直到最先的。
「那些約在第十一時辰來的人,每人領了一個『德納』。那些最先僱用的,心想自己必會多得,但是,他們也只領得一個『德納』。
「他們一領了,就抱怨家主,說:這些最後僱用的人,不過工作了一個時辰,而你竟然把他們,與我們整天受苦受熱的,同等看待。家主答覆其中一個說:朋友!我並沒有虧待你,你不是和我議定了一個『德納』嗎?拿你的,走吧!我願意給最後來的,和給你的一樣。難道不許我,拿我的財物,做我所願意的事嗎?或是因為我好,你就眼紅嗎?
「這樣,最後的,將成為最先的;最先的,將會成為最後的。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 20:1-16

1 “For the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard. 2 After agreeing with the laborers for a denarius a day, he sent them into his vineyard. 3 And going out about the third hour he saw others standing idle in the market place; 4 and to them he said, `You go into the vineyard too, and whatever is right I will give you.’ So they went. 5 Going out again about the sixth hour and the ninth hour, he did the same. 6 And about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing; and he said to them, `Why do you stand here idle all day?’ 7 They said to him, `Because no one has hired us.’ He said to them, `You go into the vineyard too.’ 8 And when evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his steward, `Call the laborers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last, up to the first.’ 9 And when those hired about the eleventh hour came, each of them received a denarius. 10 Now when the first came, they thought they would receive more; but each of them also received a denarius. 11 And on receiving it they grumbled at the householder, 12 saying, `These last worked only one hour, and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the day and the scorching heat.’ 13 But he replied to one of them, `Friend, I am doing you no wrong; did you not agree with me for a denarius? 14 Take what belongs to you, and go; I choose to give to this last as I give to you. 15 Am I not allowed to do what I choose with what belongs to me? Or do you begrudge my generosity?’ 16 So the last will be first, and the first last.”

路8:16-18  (箴3:27-34  詠15)

耶穌對群眾說:「沒有人點上燈,用器皿遮蓋住,或放在床底下的,而是放在燈台上,為叫進來的人看見光明;因為沒有隱藏的事,不被顯露的;沒有秘密的事,不被知道而公開出來的。所以,你們應當留心要怎樣聽:因為凡有的,還要給他:凡沒有的,連他自以為有的,也要從他奪去。」

默 想

  • 上主給我們人人都有恩寵,且是獨有的,其他人不可奪去的,首先,我們要發信德,學會相信。
  • 十分重要的是,我們以什麼態度看待這份得來不易的恩寵?經文提及:凡有的,還要給他;凡沒有的,連他自以為有的,也要從他奪去。我們可會珍而重之,盡心善用它?抑或視為理所當然,一直都輕忽它?
  • 若從來也不珍重恩寵,也不懂得感恩,只會繼續視一直擁有的為理所當然,亦不渴望突破。
  • 試想,這樣看待生命,是上主所喜悅的嗎?不過,對不起,有時我們原來真的不大在乎!
