神父講道 – 常年期第二十七週 (週四) (2014年10月9日)

恭讀聖路加福音 11:5-13

那時候,耶穌對門徒說:「你們中間誰有一個朋友,半夜去他那裏,向他說:朋友,借給我三個餅吧!因為我的朋友行路到了我這裏,我沒有什麼可以款待他。那人從裏面回答說:不要煩擾我了!門已經關上,我的孩子同我一起在床上,我不能起來給你。我告訴你們:他縱然不為了他是朋友的緣故,而起來給他,也要因他恬不知恥地切求而起來,給他所需要的一切。
「所以,我告訴你們:你們求,必要給你們;你們找,必要找著;你們敲,必要給你們開。因為凡求的,就必得到;找的,就必找到;敲的,就必給他開。你們中間那有為父親的,兒子向他求餅,反而給他石頭呢?或是求魚,反將蛇當魚給他呢?或者求雞蛋,反將蠍子給他呢?你們縱然不善,尚且知道把好東西給你們的兒女,何況在天之父,豈不更將聖神賜與求他的人嗎?」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 11:5-13

5 And he said to them, “Which of you who has a friend will go to him at midnight and say to him, `Friend, lend me three loaves; 6 for a friend of mine has arrived on a journey, and I have nothing to set before him’; 7 and he will answer from within, `Do not bother me; the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot get up and give you anything’? 8 I tell you, though he will not get up and give him anything because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him whatever he needs. 9 And I tell you, Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 10 For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 11 What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent; 12 or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 13 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

路11:5-13  (迦3:1-5  詠:路1)

耶穌對門徒說:「你們中間誰有一個朋友,半夜去他那裡,向他說:朋友,借給我三個餅吧!因為我的朋友行路到了我這裡,我沒有什麼可以款待他。那人從裡面回答說:不要煩擾我了!門已經關上,我的孩子同我一起在床上,我不能起來給你。我告訴你們:他縱然不為了他是朋友的緣故,而起來給他,也要因他恬不知恥地切求而起來,給他所需要的一切。
「所以,我告訴你們:你們求,必要給你們;你們找,必要找著;你們敲,必要給你們開。因為凡求的,就必得到;找的,就必找到;敲的,就必給他開。你們中間那有為父親的,兒子向他求餅,反而給他石頭呢?或是求魚,反將蛇當魚給他呢?或者求雞蛋,反將蠍子給他呢?你們縱然不善,尚且知道把好東西給你們的兒女,何況在天之父,豈不更將聖神賜與求他的人嗎?」

默 想

  • 我們一定經驗過祈禱不蒙應允的經驗。若有人說他的祈禱求必得著,這肯定不是天主教。
  • 但是,今天的經文好像就是指求必得著,這又怎麼解釋?我們要小心看經文,最後一句是「豈不更將聖神賜與求他的人嗎?」。
  • 天主是會給我們聖神,其他的東西,就不是求必得著!
  • 而聖神有時會帶領我們行一條艱難的道路,因為艱難為我們有益處。
