(聖德蘭‧里修)  路10:1-12 (厄下8:1-12  詠19)

此後,主另外選定了七十二人,派遣他們兩個兩個地在祂前面,到祂自己將要去的各城各地去。祂對他們說:「莊稼多而工人少,所以你們應當求莊稼的主人,派遣工人來,收割祂的莊稼。你們去吧!看,我派遣你們猶如羔羊往狼群中。你們不要帶錢囊,不要帶口袋,也不要帶鞋;路上也不要向人請安。不論進了哪一家,先說:『願這一家平安!』那裡如有和平之子,你們的和平就要停留在他身上;否則,仍歸於你們。
「你們要住在那一家,吃喝他們所供給的,因為工人自當有他的工資;你們不可從這一家挪到那一家。不論進了哪座城,人若接納你們,給你們擺上什麼,你們就吃什麼。要醫治城中的病人,並給他們說:天主的國已經臨近你們了。不論進了哪座城,人如不接納你們,你們就出來,到街市上說:連你們城中粘 在我們腳上的塵土,我們也要給你們拂下來;但是你們當知道:天主的國已經臨近了。我告訴你們:在那一日,索多瑪(所多馬)所受的懲罰,要比這座城容易忍受。」

 

默 想

  • 莊稼多而工人少!這一句,在今日看,比任何一個時代都貼切!
  • 教難時代,教友雖然是少數,但忠貞的為數不少,而且亦是教會最單純的時代。而中世紀,雖然教會腐化,但願意做神父主教的人就更多了,雖然忠貞的相對地少。
  • 在今天,教會歷劫千山,已不用擔心教難、異端、腐化等,但工人卻是最缺的年代。
  • 當然,我們今天的目光是放眼全球七十億人。但若是不夠工人,如何解決這困局?每天每台彌撒都要有神父祝聖聖體。主啊!幫助我們吧!

神父講道 – 聖熱羅尼莫 (司鐸、聖師) (紀念) (週三) (2015年9月30日)

聖熱羅尼莫 (司鐸、聖師) (紀念)

恭讀聖路加福音 9:57-62

耶穌和門徒正走的時候,在路上有一個人對耶穌說:「你不論往那裏去,我要跟隨你。」耶穌對他說:「狐狸有穴,天上的飛鳥有巢;但是人子卻沒有枕頭的地方。」又對另一個人說:「你跟隨我吧!」那人卻說:「主,請許我先去埋葬我的父親。」耶穌對他說:「任憑死人去埋葬自己的死人吧!至於你,你要去傳揚天主的國。又有一個人說:「主!我要跟隨你;但是請許我先去告別我的家人。」耶穌對他說:「手扶著犁而往後看的,不適於天主的國。」

(Memorial of Saint Jerome, Priest and Doctor of the Church)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 9:57-62

57 As they were going along the road, a man said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.” 58 And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man has nowhere to lay his head.” 59 To another he said, “Follow me.” But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” 60 But he said to him, “Leave the dead to bury their own dead; but as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.” 61 Another said, “I will follow you, Lord; but let me first say farewell to those at my home.” 62 Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”

(聖熱羅尼莫)  路9:57-62 (厄下[尼] 2:1-8  詠137)

耶穌和門徒正走的時候,在路上有一個人對耶穌說:「你不論往那裡去,我要跟隨你。」耶穌對他說:「狐狸有穴,天上的飛鳥有巢;但是人子卻沒有枕頭的地方。」又對另一個人說:「你跟隨我吧!」那人卻說:「主,請許我先去埋葬我的父親。」耶穌對他說:「任憑死人去埋葬自己的死人吧!至於你,你要去傳揚天主的國。又有一個人說:「主!我要跟隨你;但是請許我先去告別我的家人。」耶穌對他說:「手扶著犁而往後看的,不適於天主的國。」

 

默 想

  • 死人去埋葬自己的死人!耶穌這語帶相關的字,就給我們很大的啟發。
  • 沒有生命的人,其實就是死人。所以,用耶穌的角度看,我們不跟隨祂,就是死人!
  • 或是用另一角度看,若我們不覺醒自己是死人,就不會尋求覺醒,就會繼續死下去。
  • 所以,說到底,信仰都涉及一個自我認知的問題。

神父講道 – 聖彌額爾、聖加俾額爾及聖辣法耳天使 (慶日) (週二) (2015年9月29日)

聖彌額爾、聖加俾額爾及聖辣法耳天使 (慶日)

恭讀聖若望福音 1:47-51

那時候,耶穌看見納塔乃耳向自己走來,就指著他說:「看,這確是一個以色列人,在他內毫無詭詐。」納塔乃耳對他說:「你從那裏認識我呢?」耶穌回答說:「斐理伯叫你以前,當你遠在無花果樹下時,我就看見了你。」納塔乃耳再回答說:「辣彼!你是天主子,你是以色列的君王。」耶穌遂說道:「因為我向你說:我看見了你在無花果樹下,你就信了嗎?你要看見比這更大的事!」又向他說:「我實實在在告訴你們:你們要看見天開了,天主的天使在人子身上,上去下來。」

(Feast of Saints Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, archangels)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 1:47-51

47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and said of him, “Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!” 48 Nathanael said to him, “How do you know me?” Jesus answered him, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.” 49 Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!” 50 Jesus answered him, “Because I said to you, I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You shall see greater things than these.” 51 And he said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.”

若[約] 1:47-51  (達7:9-10, 13-14 / 默12:7-12  詠138)  (聖彌額爾、聖加俾額爾、聖辣法耳)

耶穌看見納塔乃耳(拿但業)向自己走來,就指著他說:「看,這確是一個以色列人,在他內毫無詭詐。」納塔乃耳對他說:「你從那裡認識我呢?」耶穌回答說:「斐理伯(腓力)叫你以前,當你遠在無花果樹下時,我就看見了你。」納塔乃耳再回答說:「辣彼!你是天主子,你是以色列的君王。」耶穌遂說道:「因為我向你說:我看見了你在無花果樹下,你就信了嗎?你要看見比這更大的事!」又向他說:「我實實在在告訴你們:你們要看見天開了,天主的天使在人子身上,上去下來。」

 

默 想

  • 納塔乃耳就是巴爾多祿茂(巴多羅買),即是說在納匝肋(拿撒勒)還能出什麼好事嗎的那一位(若1:46)。可以相信,納塔乃耳應是心直口快的人。所以耶穌說他毫無詭詐。
  • 一個心直口快的人,能得耶穌信任,結果他便立刻信了耶穌,這是一個互相信任的美麗故事。
  • 耶穌其實很清楚及了解我們,但我們是否願意學納塔乃耳,也同時相信耶穌?
  • 當然,這位宗徒最後也是殉道而死的,我們願意嗎?

神父講道 – 常年期第二十六週 (週一) (澳門) (2015年9月28日)

恭讀聖路加福音 9:46-50

那時,門徒間開始爭辯誰是他們中最大的。耶穌看透了他們的心思,就領來一個子孩子,叫他立在自己身邊,對他們說:「誰若為了我的名字收留這個小孩子,就是收留我;誰若收留我,就是收留那派遣我來的;因為在你們眾人中最小的,這人才是最大的。」若望說:「老師!我們曾看見一個人,因你的名字驅魔,就禁止了他,因為他不與我們同夥。」耶穌卻向他說:「不要禁止!因為誰不反對你們,就是傾向你們。」

(26th Week in Ordinary Time – Monday in Macau)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 9:46-50

46 And an argument arose among them as to which of them was the greatest. 47 But when Jesus perceived the thought of their hearts, he took a child and put him by his side, 48 and said to them, “Whoever receives this child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me receives him who sent me; for he who is least among you all is the one who is great.” 49 John answered, “Master, we saw a man casting out demons in your name, and we forbade him, because he does not follow with us.” 50 But Jesus said to him, “Do not forbid him; for he that is not against you is for you.”

主日講道 – 常年期第二十六主日 (2015年9月27日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 9:38-43, 45, 47-48

那時候,若望向耶穌說:「師父!我們見過一個人,他因你的名字驅魔;我們禁止了他,因為他不跟從我們。」
耶穌說:「不要禁止他,因為沒有一個人,以我的名字行了奇蹟,就會立即誹謗我,因為誰不反對我們,就是傾向我們。
「誰如果因你們屬於基督,而給你們一杯水喝,我實在告訴你們:他決不會失掉他的賞報。
「誰如果使這些信者中的一個小子跌倒,倒不如拿一塊驢拉的磨石,套在他的頸項,投到海裡,為他更好。
「倘若你的手使你跌倒,砍掉它!你殘廢進入生命,比有兩隻手,而下地獄,到那不滅的火裡去更好。倘若你的腳使你跌倒,砍掉它!你瘸腿進入生命,比有雙腳,而被投入地獄裡更好。倘若你的眼使你跌倒,剜出它來!你一隻眼進入天主的國,比有兩隻眼,而被投入地獄裡更好;那裡的蟲不死,火也不滅。」

—上主的話。

(26th Sunday in Ordinary Time)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 9:38-43, 45, 47-48

38 John said to him, “Teacher, we saw a man casting out demons in your name, and we forbade him, because he was not following us.” 39 But Jesus said, “Do not forbid him; for no one who does a mighty work in my name will be able soon after to speak evil of me. 40 For he that is not against us is for us.41 For truly, I say to you, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you bear the name of Christ, will by no means lose his reward.
42 “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung round his neck and he were thrown into the sea. 43 And if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go to hell, to the unquenchable fire. 45 And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life lame than with two feet to be thrown into hell. 47 And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out; it is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into hell, 48 where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.

路9:46-50  (匝8:1-8  詠102)

門徒間開始爭辯誰是他們中最大的。耶穌看透了他們的心思,就領來一個小孩子,叫他立在自己身邊,對他們說:「誰若為了我的名字收留這個小孩子,就是收留我;誰若收留我,就是收留那派遣我來的;因為在你們眾人中最小的,這人才是最大的。」若望說:「老師!我們曾看見一個人,因你的名字驅魔,就禁止了他,因為他不與我們同夥。」耶穌卻向他說:「不要禁止!因為誰不反對你們,就是傾向你們。」

 

默 想

  • 耶穌叫我們學習做小孩,這個教導沒有多少人做到。
  • 但是,若有任何人願意去做,學習去做,便成為聖人了,真實例子是小德蘭。
  • 小德蘭奇妙的地方就是她直接聽從天主,可以說,她的師傅就是耶穌自己。
  • 我們的困難真的是不敢直接聽從耶穌!
