神父講道 – 常年期第二十九週 (週六) (2015年10月24日)

恭讀聖路加福音 13:1-9

正在那時,來了幾個人把有關加里肋亞人的事,即比拉多把他們的血,與他們的祭品攙和在一起的事,報告給耶穌。他回答說:「你們以為這些加里肋亞人,比其他所有的加里肋亞人更有罪,才遭此禍害嗎?不是的。我告訴你們:如果你們不悔改,你們都要同樣喪亡。或如史羅亞塔倒下,而壓死的那十八個人。你們以為他們比耶路撒冷的其他居民罪債更大嗎?不是的。我告訴你們:如果你們不悔改,你們都要同樣喪亡。」
耶穌又講了這個比喻說:「有一個人曾將一棵無花果樹,栽在自己的葡萄園內。他來在樹上找果子,但沒有找到,便對園丁說:「你看,我三年來在這棵無花果樹上找果子,但沒有找到,你砍掉它吧!為什麼讓它白佔土地呢?」園丁回答他說:「主人!再留它一年吧!待我在它周圍掘鬆泥土,加上肥料;將來若結果子便算了;不然的話,你就把它砍掉吧!」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 13:1-9

1 There were some present at that very time who told him of the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. 2 And he answered them, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans, because they suffered thus? 3 I tell you, No; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish. 4 Or those eighteen upon whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others who dwelt in Jerusalem? 5 I tell you, No; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.” 6 And he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. 7 And he said to the vinedresser, `Lo, these three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and I find none. Cut it down; why should it use up the ground?’ 8 And he answered him, `Let it alone, sir, this year also, till I dig about it and put on manure. 9 And if it bears fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down.'”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

神父講道 – 常年期第二十九週 (週五) (2015年10月23日)

恭讀聖路加福音 12:54-59

那時候,耶穌向群眾說:「幾時你們看見雲彩由西方升起,立刻就說,要下大雨了;果然是這樣。幾時南風吹來,就說,天氣會熱了;果然是這樣。假善人哪!你們知道觀察地上及天上的氣象,怎麼不能觀察這個時機呢?你們為什麼不能由自己來辨別正義的事呢?當你同你的對頭去見官長時,尚在路上,你得設法與他了結,怕他拉你到法官前,判官把你交給刑役,而刑役把你押在獄中。我告訴你:非等你還清最後的一分錢,斷不能從那裏出來。」

—上主的話。

(29th Week in Ordinary Time – Friday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 12:54-59

54 He also said to the multitudes, “When you see a cloud rising in the west, you say at once, `A shower is coming’; and so it happens. 55 And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, `There will be scorching heat’; and it happens. 56 You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky; but why do you not know how to interpret the present time? 57 “And why do you not judge for yourselves what is right?58 As you go with your accuser before the magistrate, make an effort to settle with him on the way, lest he drag you to the judge, and the judge hand you over to the officer, and the officer put you in prison. 59 I tell you, you will never get out till you have paid the very last copper.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

路13:1-9  (羅8:1-11  詠24)

正在那時,來了幾個人把有關加里肋亞(加利利)人的事,即比拉多把他們的血,與他們的祭品攙和在一起的事,報告給耶穌。他回答說:「你們以為這些加里肋亞人,比其他所有的加里肋亞人更有罪,才遭此禍害嗎?不是的。我告訴你們:如果你們不悔改,你們都要同樣喪亡。或如史羅亞塔倒下,而壓死的那十八個人。你們以為他們比耶路撒冷的其他居民罪債更大嗎?不是的。我告訴你們:如果你們不悔改,你們都要同樣喪亡。」
耶穌又講了這個比喻說:「有一個人曾將一棵無花果樹,栽在自己的葡萄園內。他來在樹上找果子,但沒有找到,便對園丁說:「你看,我三年來在這棵無花果樹上找果子,但沒有找到,你砍掉它吧!為什麼讓它白佔土地呢?」園丁回答他說:「主人!再留它一年吧!待我在它周圍掘鬆泥土,加上肥料;將來若結果子便算了;不然的話,你就把它砍掉吧!」

 

默 想

  • 無花果樹不結果,是否它欠缺養分?又或像我們的身體般,如果有太多雜質毒素尚待清除,吸收營養的能力自然驟減呢!
  • 我們的信仰生命也一樣,之所以停滯不前,可能與我們不常汲取屬靈滋養有關;又或「消化系統」出問題,以致吸收能力欠佳。做個測試吧!你還記得今個主日的福音是什麼嗎?聽了神父講道的信息,你帶走了什麼重點?上一次閱讀信仰書籍是何時?完整地讀了一本書嗎?
  • 以上的例子不是指標,但可以反映我們的生活,有多少信仰元素?
  • 慈愛的天父永遠就如故事中的園丁,總給我們機會,在我們生命的土壤上鬆泥施肥,等候有天開花結果。
