神父講道 – 聖依撒伯爾‧匈牙利 (紀念) (週二) (2015年11月17日)

恭讀聖路加福音 19:1-10

那時候,耶穌進了耶里哥,正經過的時候,有一個人,名叫匝凱,他原是稅吏長,是個富有的人。他想要看看耶穌是什麼人;但由於人多,不能看見,因為他身材短小,於是他往前奔跑,攀上了一棵野桑樹,要看看耶穌,因為耶穌就要從那裏經過。耶穌來到那地方,抬頭一看,對他說:「匝凱!你快下來!因為我今天必須住在你家中。」他便趕快下來,喜悅地款待耶穌。眾人見了,都竊竊私議說:「他竟到有罪的人那裏投宿。」匝凱站起來對主說:「主,你看,我把我財物的一半施捨給窮人;我如果欺騙過誰,我就以四倍賠償。」耶穌對他說:「今天救恩臨到了這一家,因為他也是亞巴郎之子。因為人子來,是為尋找及拯救迷失了的人。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 19:1-10

1 He entered Jericho and was passing through. 2 And there was a man named Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector, and rich. 3 And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not, on account of the crowd, because he was small of stature. 4 So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, for he was to pass that way. 5 And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, make haste and come down; for I must stay at your house today.” 6 So he made haste and came down, and received him joyfully. 7 And when they saw it they all murmured, “He has gone in to be the guest of a man who is a sinner.” 8 And Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have defrauded any one of anything, I restore it fourfold.” 9 And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, since he also is a son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of man came to seek and to save the lost.”

聖依撒伯爾‧匈牙利  路19:1-10  (加下6:18-31  詠3)

耶穌進了耶里哥,正經過的時候,有一個人,名叫匝凱(撒該),他原是稅吏長,是個富有的人。他想要看看耶穌是什麼人;但由於人多,不能看見,因為他身材短小,於是他往前奔跑,攀上了一棵野桑樹,要看看耶穌,因為耶穌就要從那裡經過。耶穌來到那地方,抬頭一看,對他說:「匝凱!你快下來!因為我今天必須住在你家中。」他便趕快下來,喜悅地款待耶穌。眾人見了,都竊竊私議說:「他竟到有罪的人那裡投宿。」匝凱站起來對主說:「主,你看,我把我財物的一半施捨給窮人;我如果欺騙過誰,我就以四倍賠償。」耶穌對他說:「今天救恩臨到了這一家,因為他也是亞巴郎之子。因為人子來,是為尋找及拯救迷失了的人。」

 

默 想

  • 匝凱和其他人的關係很差,固然和他的身分職業有關,但當時猶太人真的是正義嗎?
  • 他們是亡國奴,大家心理不平衡。匝凱自己也不好過。他知道別人討厭他,但也沒有辦法。
  • 匝凱不愛國嗎?不見得。其他猶太人也愛國,但為何兩個都是愛國的人要互相憎恨呢?
  • 這也是耶穌要帶給我們的訊息,世人應該改變自己。因為我們都是人類之子。
