神父講道 – 聖莫尼加 (紀念) (週四) (2015年8月27日)

聖莫尼加 (紀念)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 24:42-51

那時候:耶穌對門徒說:「你們要醒寤,因為你們不知道:在那一天你們的主人要來。這一點你們要明白:如果家主知道盜賊幾更天要來,他必要醒寤,不讓自己的房屋被挖穿。為此:你們應該準備,因為在你們料想不到的時辰,人子就來了。
「究竟誰是那忠信聰明的僕人,主人派他管理自己的家僕,按時配給他們食糧呢?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。如果那惡僕心裏說:我主人必要延遲,於是開始烤打自己的同伴,什或同醉漢一起吃喝。正在他不期待的日子,和想不到的時刻,那僕人的主人要來到:剷除他,使他與假善人遭受同樣的命運;在那裏要有哀號和切齒。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 24:42-51

42 Watch therefore, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the householder had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have watched and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 Therefore you also must be ready; for the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not expect. 45 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his master has set over his household, to give them their food at the proper time? 46 Blessed is that servant whom his master when he comes will find so doing. 47 Truly, I say to you, he will set him over all his possessions. 48 But if that wicked servant says to himself, `My master is delayed,’ 49 and begins to beat his fellow servants, and eats and drinks with the drunken, 50 the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know, 51 and will punish him, and put him with the hypocrites; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

瑪24:42-51  (得前3:7-13  詠90)  (聖莫尼加)

耶穌對門徒說:「你們要醒寤,因為你們不知道:在那一天你們的主人要來。這一點你們要明白:如果家主知道盜賊幾更天要來,他必要醒寤,不讓自己的房屋被挖穿。為此:你們應該準備,因為在你們料想不到的時辰,人子就來了。
「究竟誰是那忠信聰明的僕人,主人派他管理自己的家僕,按時配給他們食糧呢?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。如果那惡僕心裡說:我主人必要延遲,於是開始烤打自己的同伴,什或同醉漢一起吃喝。正在他不期待的日子,和想不到的時刻,那僕人的主人要來到:剷除他,使他與假善人遭受同樣的命運;在那裡要有哀號和切齒。」

 

默 想

  • 我們是忠信的僕人嗎?
  • 可能有教友會這樣想:神父修女才是天主的僕人,我們平信徒連邊也摸不到。
  • 這樣想法,真是天主教的失敗!所以我們教會欠缺活力!其實每個教友都是僕人!
  • 每個教友都應忠信,但耶穌卻常嘆息,我忠信的門徒在哪裡?全球有十二億教友,忠信的百分比有多少?
