神父講道 – 四旬期第二週 (週五) (2015年3月6日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 21:33-43,45-46

那時候,耶穌對司祭長和民間長老說:「你們再聽一個比喻吧!從前有一個家主,培植了一個葡萄園,周圍圍上籬笆,園內挖了一個榨酒池,築了一個守望台,把它租給園戶,就離開了本國。快到收果子的時節,他打發僕人到園戶那裡去收果子。園戶拿住了僕人,將一個鞭打了,將一個殺了,將另一個用石頭砸死了。他再打發一些僕人去,人數比以前還多;園戶也一樣對待了他們,最後他打發自己的兒子到他們那裡去,說:他們會敬重我的兒子。但園戶一看見是兒子,就彼此說:這是繼承人;來!我們殺掉他,我們就能得到他的產業。於是他們拿住他,把他推到園外殺了。那麼﹐當葡萄園的主人來時,他要怎樣處置那些園戶呢?」他們回答說:「要凶惡地消滅那些凶惡的人,把葡萄園另租給按時給他繳納出產的園戶。」耶穌對他們說:「『匠人棄而不用的石頭,反而成了屋角的基石;那是上主的所行所為,在我們眼中,神妙莫測!』的這句經文,你們沒有讀過嗎?為此,我對你們說,天主的國,必由你們中奪去,而交給結果子的外邦人。」
司祭長和法利塞人聽了他的這些比喻,覺出他是指著他們說的,就想逮住他,但害怕民眾,因為他們以耶穌為一位先知。

—上主的話。

(2nd Week of Lent – Friday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 21:33-43,45-46

33 “Hear another parable. There was a householder who planted a vineyard, and set a hedge around it, and dug a wine press in it, and built a tower, and let it out to tenants, and went into another country. 34 When the season of fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the tenants, to get his fruit; 35 and the tenants took his servants and beat one, killed another, and stoned another. 36 Again he sent other servants, more than the first; and they did the same to them. 37 Afterward he sent his son to them, saying, `They will respect my son.’ 38 But when the tenants saw the son, they said to themselves, `This is the heir; come, let us kill him and have his inheritance.’ 39 And they took him and cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. 40 When therefore the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?” 41 They said to him, “He will put those wretches to a miserable death, and let out the vineyard to other tenants who will give him the fruits in their seasons.”
42 Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the scriptures: `The very stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner; this was the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes’? 43 Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a nation producing the fruits of it.” 45 When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables, they perceived that he was speaking about them. 46 But when they tried to arrest him, they feared the multitudes, because they held him to be a prophet.

瑪21:33-43, 45-46  (創37:3-4, 12-13, 17-28  詠105)

耶穌對司祭長和民間長老說:「你們再聽一個比喻吧!從前有一個家主,培植了一個葡萄園,周圍圍上籬笆,園內挖了一個榨酒池,築了一個守望台,把它租給園戶,就離開了本國。快到收果子的時節,他打發僕人到園戶那裡去收果子。園戶拿住了僕人,將一個鞭打了,將一個殺了,將另一個用石頭砸死了。他再打發一些僕人去,人數比以前還多;園戶也一樣對待了他們,最後他打發自己的兒子到他們那裡去,說:他們會敬重我的兒子。但園戶一看見是兒子,就彼此說:這是繼承人;來!我們殺掉他,我們就能得到他的產業。於是他們拿住他,把他推到園外殺了。那麼,當葡萄園的主人來時,他要怎樣處置那些園戶呢?」他們回答說:「要凶惡地消滅那些凶惡的人,把葡萄園另租給按時給他繳納出產的園戶。」耶穌對他們說:「『匠人棄而不用的石頭,反而成了屋角的基石;那是上主的所行所為,在我們眼中,神妙莫測!』的這句經文,你們沒有讀過嗎?為此,我對你們說,天主的國,必由你們中奪去,而交給結果子的外邦人。」
司祭長和法利塞人聽了他的這些比喻,覺出他是指著他們說的,就想逮住他,但害怕民眾,因為他們以耶穌為一位先知。

 

默 想

  • 耶穌這個比喻當然是假的,因為那些園戶不單惡,而且蠢,主人到時,他們可以怎樣?
  • 但耶穌為何會說這個比喻?因為現實上,真的有這樣蠢的人。司祭長和法利賽人就是這樣!他們為何不想想,他們這樣殺人,天主會怎樣對他們?
  • 教會也重蹈覆轍,二千年歷史,教會殺了多少人?今天,教會終於學會了殺人是不可以的。
  • 我們自己又怎樣?我們會否仍然著意打壓異己?非我族類,其心必異?
