聖若亞敬及聖亞納 (聖母雙親) (紀念)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 13:36-43

那時,耶穌離開了群眾,來到家裏,他的門徒就前來對他說:「請把田間莠子的比喻給我們講解一下!」他就回答說:「那撒好種子的,就是人子;田就是世界;好種子,即是天國的子民;莠子即是邪惡的子民;那撒莠子的仇人,就是魔鬼;收割時期,即是今世的終結;收割者即是天使。就如將莠子收集起來,用火焚燒;在今世終結時也將是如此;人子要差遣他的天使,由他的國內,將一切使人跌倒的事,及作惡的人收集起來,扔到火窰裏;在那裏要有哀號和切齒。那時,義人要在他們父的國裏,發光如同太陽。有耳的,聽吧!」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 13:36-43

36 Then he left the crowds and went into the house. And his disciples came to him, saying, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the field.” 37 He answered, “He who sows the good seed is the Son of man; 38 the field is the world, and the good seed means the sons of the kingdom; the weeds are the sons of the evil one, 39 and the enemy who sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the close of the age, and the reapers are angels. 40 Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the close of the age. 41 The Son of man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all evildoers, 42 and throw them into the furnace of fire; there men will weep and gnash their teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

聖若亞敬及聖亞納  瑪13:36-43  (耶14:17-22  詠79)

耶穌離開了群眾,來到家裡,他的門徒就前來對他說:「請把田間莠子的比喻給我們講解一下!」他就回答說:「那撒好種子的,就是人子;田就是世界;好種子,即是天國的子民;莠子即是邪惡的子民;那撒莠子的仇人,就是魔鬼;收割時期,即是今世的終結;收割者即是天使。就如將莠子收集起來,用火焚燒;在今世終結時也將是如此;人子要差遣他的天使,由他的國內,將一切使人跌倒的事,及作惡的人收集起來,扔到火窰裡;在那裡要有哀號和切齒。那時,義人要在他們父的國裡,發光如同太陽。有耳的,聽吧!」

 

默 想

  • 莠子代表邪惡,麥子表達光明,當收割時,總將兩種東西一併收割回來,無須刻意分開。這意像就如世界,好的不好的俱在,挑戰正如看我們如何面對,又或反省自己會否做了莠子?
  • 我們會否感到身不由己,軟弱時做了莠子,或根本不為意自己的冷漠,拒絕了人子的邀請,將愛心傳出去?
  • 我們有否渴望自己成為義人的決心及意願?又可會領略自己在天父的國裡,努力發熱發光?
