聖方濟‧沙勿略  谷16:15-20  (格前9:16-19, 22-23  詠117)

然後耶穌對他們說:「你們往普天下去,向一切受造物宣傳福音,信而受洗的必要得救;但不信的必被判罪。信的人必有這些奇蹟隨著他們:因我的名驅逐魔鬼說新語言,手拿毒蛇,甚或喝了什麼致死的毒物,也決不受害;按手在病人身上,可使人痊癒。」
主耶穌給他們說了這些話以後,就被接升天,坐在天主的右邊。他們出去,到處宣講,主與他們合作,並以奇跡相隨,證實所傳的道理。

 

默 想

  • 讓我們默念這位偉大傳教主保聖方濟沙勿略,他那火熱傳教的心志,激勵我們,感染我們。
  • 記起他,也銘記他在最後孤單的病榻上,鬱鬱而終,對天主的愛依然不減不滅。
  • 由此,我們也繼續為身在異地的傳教士祈禱,尤其那些置身窮鄉僻壤,孤軍作戰的傳教士,他們有不少獨個兒承擔那處地方的傳教工作,或其他需要耗盡心力的服務,面對重大的經濟壓力、資源匱乏的境況等等。

神父講道 – 將臨期第一週 (週三) (2015年12月2日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 15:29-37

那時候,耶穌來到加里肋亞海岸,上了山,坐在那裡。有許多群眾帶著瘸子、殘廢、瞎子、啞吧,和許多其他的病人來到耶穌跟前,把他們放在他的足前,他便治好了他們;致使群眾見到啞吧說話,殘廢康復,瘸子行走,瞎子看見,都大為驚奇,頌揚以色列的天主。
耶穌將自己的門徒召來說:「我很憐憫這群眾,因為他們同我在一起已經三天,也沒有什麼可吃的;我不願遣散他們空著肚子回去,怕他們在路上暈倒。」門徒對他說:「在荒野裡我們從那裡得這麼多的餅,使這麼多的群眾吃飽呢?」耶穌對他們說:「你們有多少餅?」他們說:「七個,還有幾條魚。」耶穌就吩咐群眾坐在地上,拿起那七個餅和魚來,祝謝了,擘開,遞給門徒;門徒再分給群眾。眾人都吃了,也都飽了,把剩下的碎塊收集了滿滿七籃子。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 15:29-37

29 And Jesus went on from there and passed along the Sea of Galilee. And he went up on the mountain, and sat down there. 30 And great crowds came to him, bringing with them the lame, the maimed, the blind, the dumb, and many others, and they put them at his feet, and he healed them, 31 so that the throng wondered, when they saw the dumb speaking, the maimed whole, the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel. 32 Then Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “I have compassion on the crowd, because they have been with me now three days, and have nothing to eat; and I am unwilling to send them away hungry, lest they faint on the way.” 33 And the disciples said to him, “Where are we to get bread enough in the desert to feed so great a crowd?” 34 And Jesus said to them, “How many loaves have you?” They said, “Seven, and a few small fish.” 35 And commanding the crowd to sit down on the ground, 36 he took the seven loaves and the fish, and having given thanks he broke them and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. 37 And they all ate and were satisfied; and they took up seven baskets full of the broken pieces left over.
