神父講道 – 常年期第二十九週 (週三) (2014年10月22日)

恭讀聖路加福音 12:39-48

那時候,耶穌對門徒說:「你們應該明白這一點:如果家主知道盜賊何時要來,【他必要醒寤】,決不容許自己的房屋被挖穿。你們也應當準備,因為在你們料想不到的時辰,人子就來了。」
伯多祿說:「主!你講的這個比喻,是為我們呢?還是為眾人?」主說:「究竟誰是那忠信及精明的管家?主人派他管理自己的家僕,按時配給食糧。主人來時,看見他如此行事,那僕人才是有福的。我實在告訴你們:主人必要委派他,管理自己的一切財產。如果那個僕人心裏說:我的主人必然遲來;他便開始拷打僕婢,也吃也喝也醉酒。在他想不到的日子,不知覺的時刻,那僕人的主人就會來到,必要剷除他,使他與不信者遭受同樣的命運。那知道主人的旨意,而偏不準備,或竟不奉行他旨意的僕人,必然要多受拷打;那不知道而做了應受拷打之事的,要少受挨打。給誰的多,向誰要的也多;交託誰的多,向誰索取的也格外多。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 12:39-48

39 But know this, that if the householder had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have left his house to be broken into. 40 You also must be ready; for the Son of man is coming at an unexpected hour.” 41 Peter said, “Lord, are you telling this parable for us or for all?” 42 And the Lord said, “Who then is the faithful and wise steward, whom his master will set over his household, to give them their portion of food at the proper time? 43 Blessed is that servant whom his master when he comes will find so doing. 44 Truly, I say to you, he will set him over all his possessions. 45 But if that servant says to himself, `My master is delayed in coming,’ and begins to beat the menservants and the maidservants, and to eat and drink and get drunk, 46 the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know, and will punish him, and put him with the unfaithful. 47 And that servant who knew his master’s will, but did not make ready or act according to his will, shall receive a severe beating. 48 But he who did not know, and did what deserved a beating, shall receive a light beating. Every one to whom much is given, of him will much be required; and of him to whom men commit much they will demand the more.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

路12:39-48  (弗3:2-12  詠:依12:2-6)

耶穌對門徒說:「你們應該明白這一點:如果家主知道盜賊何時要來,【他必要醒寤】,決不容許自己的房屋被挖穿。你們也應當準備,因為在你們料想不到的時辰,人子就來了。」
伯多祿說:「主!你講的這個比喻,是為我們呢?還是為眾人?」主說:「究竟誰是那忠信及精明的管家?主人派他管理自己的家僕,按時配給食糧。主人來時,看見他如此行事,那僕人才是有福的。我實在告訴你們:主人必要委派他,管理自己的一切財產。如果那個僕人心裡說:我的主人必然遲來;他便開始拷打僕婢,也吃也喝也醉酒。在他想不到的日子,不知覺的時刻,那僕人的主人就會來到,必要剷除他,使他與不信者遭受同樣的命運。那知道主人的旨意,而偏不準備,或竟不奉行他旨意的僕人,必然要多受拷打;那不知道而做了應受拷打之事的,要少受挨打。給誰的多,向誰要的也多;交託誰的多,向誰索取的也格外多。」

默 想

  • 繼續是關於醒寤的訊息。我們如何才做到足夠醒寤?為什麼我們依然常感疲累、混沌,內心的明淨去了哪裡?上一次嚐到明淨的感覺是何時?
  • 若我們的心常有天主,由祂帶給我們定與靜,即使外面風風雨雨,我們也可活得足夠醒寤。
  • 祂是誰?祂正正是醒寤、明淨、平安、喜樂、愛的根源,世界終究不是完美,我們就是要在不完美中嚐到上主的恩寵,好保持那份覺醒。
  • 覺醒的生命,往往不是只有快樂的生命;因為太醒寤,也有帶來痛苦,說得更準確一點,是經歷過後的回甘,更深層的喜樂,不是官能感受的表面快樂。
