神父講道 – 常年期第三十一週 (週二) (2015年11月3日)

恭讀聖路加福音 14:15-24

那時候,有一個同席的人向耶穌說:「將來能在天主的國裏吃飯的,才是有福的!」耶穌對他說:「有一個人設了盛宴,邀請了許多人。到了宴會的時刻,他便打發僕人去對被請的人說:請來吧!一切都準備好了。可是,客人都一個一個借口推辭。第一個對他說:我買了一塊田地,必須前去看一看,請你原諒我。另一個說:我買了五對牛,要去試試牠們,請你原諒我。別的一個說:我才娶了妻,所以不能去。僕人回來把這些事報告了主人。家主就生了氣,對僕人說,你快出去,到城中的大街小巷,把那些貧窮的、殘廢的、瞎眼的、瘸腿的,都領到這裏來。僕人說:主,已經照你的吩咐辦了,可是還有空位子。主人對僕人說:你出去,到大路上以及籬笆邊,勉強人進來,好坐滿我的房屋。我告訴你們:先前被請的那些人,一個也不能嘗到我的宴席。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 14:15-24

15 When one of those who sat at table with him heard this, he said to him, “Blessed is he who shall eat bread in the kingdom of God!” 16 But he said to him, “A man once gave a great banquet, and invited many; 17 and at the time for the banquet he sent his servant to say to those who had been invited, `Come; for all is now ready.’ 18 But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said to him, `I have bought a field, and I must go out and see it; I pray you, have me excused.’ 19 And another said, `I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to examine them; I pray you, have me excused.’ 20 And another said, `I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.’ 21 So the servant came and reported this to his master. Then the householder in anger said to his servant, `Go out quickly to the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in the poor and maimed and blind and lame.’ 22 And the servant said, `Sir, what you commanded has been done, and still there is room.’ 23 And the master said to the servant, `Go out to the highways and hedges, and compel people to come in, that my house may be filled. 24 For I tell you, none of those men who were invited shall taste my banquet.'”

路14:15-24  (羅12:5-16  詠131)

有一個同席的人向耶穌說:「將來能在天主的國裡吃飯的,才是有福的!」耶穌對他說:「有一個人設了盛宴,邀請了許多人。到了宴會的時刻,他便打發僕人去對被請的人說:請來吧!一切都準備好了。可是,客人都一個一個借口推辭。第一個對他說:我買了一塊田地,必須前去看一看,請你原諒我。另一個說:我買了五對牛,要去試試牠們,請你原諒我。別的一個說:我才娶了妻,所以不能去。僕人回來把這些事報告了主人。家主就生了氣,對僕人說,你快出去,到城中的大街小巷,把那些貧窮的、殘廢的、瞎眼的、瘸腿的,都領到這裡來。僕人說:主,已經照你的吩咐辦了,可是還有空位子。主人對僕人說:你出去,到大路上以及籬笆邊,勉強人進來,好坐滿我的房屋。我告訴你們:先前被請的那些人,一個也不能嘗到我的宴席。」

 

默 想

  • 我們雖然在教會內,但卻總有大量藉口去拒絕做服務、讀信仰課程、參與善會、助人、做修和……甚至乎參與彌撒。
  • 耶穌會怎樣想?我們這麼多稱為基督徒的人拒絕回應祂!
  • 我相信耶穌不會因此而打我們下地獄,不過,我們成長的速度要慢很多了。不願吃苦又怎能有成長?難道我們真的相信所謂的愉快學習嗎?
  • 又或許有人會說,我不介意不成長。我們真的無話可說了,幸好我們不是這些人的父母!但天主卻是所有人的父親!還能不痛苦嗎?
