恭讀聖路加福音 14:12-14

耶穌向邀請他的一個法利塞人首長說:「幾時你設午宴或晚宴時,不要請你的朋友、兄弟、親戚及富有的鄰人,怕他們也要回請而還報你。但你幾時設筵,要請貧窮的、殘廢的、瘸腿的、瞎眼的人。如此,你有福了,因為他們沒有可報答你的;但在義人復活的時候,你必能得到償報。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 14:12-14

12 He said also to the man who had invited him, “When you give a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your kinsmen or rich neighbors, lest they also invite you in return, and you be repaid. 13 But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind, 14 and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. You will be repaid at the resurrection of the just.”

主日講道 – 常年期第三十一主日 追思已亡諸信者 (2014年11月2日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 25:31-46

那時候,耶穌對門徒說:「當人子在自己的光榮中,與眾天使一同降來時,那時,他要坐在光榮的寶座上;一切民族,都要聚在他面前。他要把他們彼此分開,如同牧人分開綿羊和山羊一樣:把綿羊放在自己的右邊,山羊在左邊。
「那時,君王要對那些在他右邊的說:我父所祝福的,你們來吧!承受自創世以來,給你們預備了的國度吧!因為我餓了,你們給了我吃的;我渴了,你們給了我喝的;我作客,你們收留了我;我赤身露體,你們給了我穿的;我患病,你們看顧了我;我在監裡,你們來探望過我。
「那時,義人回答君王說:主啊!我們什麼時候見過你飢餓,而供養了你,或口渴,而給了你喝的?我們什麼時候見了你作客,而收留了你,或赤身露體,而給了你穿的?我們什麼時候見你患病,或在監裡,而來探望過你?
「君王便回答他們說:我實在告訴你們:凡你們對我這些最小兄弟中的一個所做的,就是對我做的。
「然後,君王又對那些在左邊的說:可咒罵的,離開我,到那給魔鬼和他的使者預備的永火裡去吧!因為我餓了,你們沒有給我吃的;我渴了,你們沒有給我喝的;我作客,你們沒有收留我;我赤身露體,你們沒有給我穿的;我患病或在監裡,你們沒有來探望我。
「那時,他們也要回答說:主啊!我們幾時見了你飢餓,或口渴,或作客,或赤身露體,或有病,或坐監,而我們沒有給你效勞?
「那時,君王回答他們說:我實在告訴你們:凡你們沒有給這些最小兄弟中的一個做的,就是沒有給我做。
「這些人要進入永罰,而那些義人,卻要進入永生。」

—上主的話。

(The Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed (All Souls)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 25:31-46

31 “When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, 33 and he will place the sheep at his right hand, but the goats at the left. 34 Then the King will say to those at his right hand, `Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; 35 for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’
37 Then the righteous will answer him, `Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink? 38 And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee? 39 And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?’ 40 And the King will answer them, `Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.’ 41 Then he will say to those at his left hand, `Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels; 42 for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ 44 Then they also will answer, `Lord, when did we see thee hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to thee?’ 45 Then he will answer them, `Truly, I say to you, as you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to me.’ 46 And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

路14:12-14  (斐2:1-4  詠130)

耶穌向邀請他的一個法利塞人首長說:「幾時你設午宴或晚宴時,不要請你的朋友、兄弟、親戚及富有的鄰人,怕他們也要回請而還報你。但你幾時設筵,要請貧窮的、殘廢的、瘸腿的、瞎眼的人。如此,你有福了,因為他們沒有可報答你的;但在義人復活的時候,你必能得到償報。」

默 想

  • 不能不說,耶穌的年代是比較單純,當時怕人回報,現在嘛,其實請富人正是要回報!
  • 所以,若我們跟隨基督,其實正正是回復單純,不要有機心。
  • 如何才能沒有機心?若我們能滿足於天主所給的一切,無論是好的、壞的,我們都甘之如飴,我們便不再有所求,人便回復單純。
  • 其實信仰對我們最大的助益便是使我們回復單純,而我們所求的,不也是如此嗎?相反,若希望在信仰內求單純以外的東西,便明顯是求錯了,必無所得。
