主日講道 – 常年期第三十二主主日 (2015年11月8日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 12:41-44

那時候,耶穌面對銀庫坐著,看眾人怎樣向銀庫裡投錢。有許多富有的人,投了很多。那時,來了一個窮寡婦,投了兩個小錢,即一文銅錢的四分之一。
耶穌便叫他的門徒過來,對他們說:「我實在告訴你們:這個窮寡婦,比所有向銀庫投錢的人,投的更多,因為眾人都拿他們所剩餘的,來捐獻;但這寡婦卻由自己的不足中,把所有的一切,全部的生活費,都捐獻了。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 12:41-44

41 Jesus sat down opposite the treasury, and watched the multitude putting money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. 42 And a poor widow came, and put in two copper coins, which make a penny. 43 And he called his disciples to him, and said to them, “Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury. 44 For they all contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, her whole living.”

每日聖言靜思 常年期第三十二主日 11月8日

讀經一  列上 17:10-16  詠 : 146
讀經二     希9:24-28
主日福音 谷 12:38-44

耶穌教訓人說:「你們要謹防經師:他們喜歡穿上長袍遊行,在街市上受人請安,在會堂裡坐上座,在筵席上坐首席;他們吞沒了寡婦的家產,而以長久的祈禱作掩飾。這些人必要遭受更嚴重的處罰。」
耶穌面對銀庫坐著,看眾人怎樣向銀庫裡投錢。有許多富有的人,投了很多。那時,來了一個窮寡婦,投了兩個小錢,即一文銅錢的四分之一。
耶穌便叫他的門徒過來,對他們說:「我實在告訴你們:這個窮寡婦,比所有向銀庫投錢的人,投的更多,因為眾人都拿他們所剩餘的,來捐獻;但這寡婦卻由自己的不足中,把所有的一切,全部的生活費,都捐獻了。」

默 想

  • 不知大家有沒有試過連兩個小錢也沒有的經驗?就是一個要問人借錢吃飯的經驗。
  • 那天我用了二十元吃飯。我現今想,若那天要我捐二十元容易,還是要首富捐所有家財容易?
  • 答案顯而易見的,我會比首富容易。擁有的多,執著會更多,奉獻的會更少。
  • 我們應時時檢視自己擁有多少,執著多少。

神父講道 – 常年期第三十一週 (週六) (2015年11月7日)

恭讀聖路加福音 16:9-15

那時候,耶穌對門徒說:「你們要用不義的錢財結交朋友,為在你們匱乏的時候,好叫他們收留你們到永遠的帳幕裏。在小事上忠信的,在大事上也忠信;在小事上不義的,在大事上也不義。那麼,如果你們在不義的錢財上不忠信,誰還把真實的錢財委託給你們呢?如果你們在別人的財物上不忠信,誰還把屬於你們的交給你們呢?
「沒有一個家僕能事奉兩個主人的:他或是要恨這一個而愛那一個,或是要依附這一個而輕忽那一個;你們不能事奉天主而又事奉錢財。」愛財的法利塞人聽了這一切話,便嗤笑耶穌。耶穌向他們說:「你們在人前自充義人,但是天主知道你們的心,因為在人前是崇高的事,在天主前卻是可憎的。」

—上主的話。

(31st Week in Ordinary Time – Saturday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 16:9-15

9 And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of unrighteous mammon, so that when it fails they may receive you into the eternal habitations. 10 “He who is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much; and he who is dishonest in a very little is dishonest also in much. 11 If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will entrust to you the true riches? 12 And if you have not been faithful in that which is another’s, who will give you that which is your own? 13 No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” 14 The Pharisees, who were lovers of money, heard all this, and they scoffed at him. 15 But he said to them, “You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts; for what is exalted among men is an abomination in the sight of God.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.
