主日講道 – 常年期第三十四主日 (基督君王節) (2014年11月23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。」

(34th Sunday in Ordinary Time – The Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe)

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 you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 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 you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?’ 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.”

默 想

  • 信仰給了我們怎樣的力量?我們因此改變了多少?
  • 信仰應該不是抽象的哲學道理,信仰應該不是虛無飄渺,信仰應該不是只有我和天主。
  • 因著這份信仰而來的愛,應該是關乎增進人與人之間的美好關係,彼此經驗到人與人之間的慷慨、關懷,正正是天國的本質。要建設的,是人間天國,不單止是得進天堂。
  • 幾時,我們留意到周遭那需要被幫忙的兄弟姊妹,他們等待我們施以援手,那一刻,他們都是主基督耶穌。
  • 以心眼觀之,將會見到人世間尚有很多很多的傷口要撫平,痛苦悲鳴的呼叫聲等待被聆聽。
