神父講道 – 將臨期第一週 (週四) (2014年12月4日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 7: 21, 24-27

「不是向我說『主啊!主啊!』的人,就能進天國,而是承行我在天之父的旨意的人。所以凡聽了我這些話,而實行的,好比一個聰明人,把自己的房屋蓋在岩石上。哪怕雨淋、水沖、風吹襲擊那所房屋,它卻不倒,因爲房基築在岩石上。凡聽了我這些話,而不去實行的,好比一個糊塗人,把房屋蓋在沙土上,雨淋、水沖、風吹襲擊那所房屋,它就倒塌了,而且倒塌的很慘!」

—上主的話。

(1st Week of Advent – Thursday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 7:21,24-27

21 “Not every one who says to me, `Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 24 “Every one then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house upon the rock; 25 and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. 26 And every one who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house upon the sand; 27 and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell; and great was the fall of it.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

瑪7:21, 24-27  (依26:1-6  詠118)

耶穌向他的門徒說:「不是凡向我說『主啊!主啊!』的人,就能進天國;而是那承行我在天之父旨意的人,才能進天國。所以,凡聽了我這些話而實行的,就好像一個聰明人,把自己的房屋建在磐石上:雨淋,水沖,風吹,襲擊那座房屋,它並不坍塌,因為基礎是建在磐石上。凡聽了我這些話而不實行的,就好像一個愚昧人,把自己的房屋建在沙土上:雨淋,水沖,風吹,襲擊那座房屋,它就坍塌了,且坍塌的很慘。」

 

默 想

  • 其實我們今天想進天國的人,都是連「主啊!主啊」都不願說的人,更遑論承行在天之父的旨意了。
  • 所以,有時我不禁問自己,若我們這麼不重視耶穌的教導,為何要領洗做教友?
  • 耶穌說過,天國是一條窄路,要猛力奪取的。有人會問,為何祂這樣愛我們,卻安排一條這麼窄的路?
  • 因為這條窄路,其實是我們自己!我們若不變為完整,仍是碎片,又怎能回歸父家?由碎片變為完整,就是一條窄路。
