主日講道 – 常年期第二十六主日 (2016年9月25日)

恭讀聖路加福音 16:19-31

那時候,耶穌對法利塞人說:
「有一個富翁,身穿紫紅袍及細麻衣,天天奢華宴樂。另有一個乞丐,名叫拉匝祿,滿身瘡痍,躺臥在富翁的大門前。拉匝祿指望得到從富翁桌上掉下的碎屑充飢,但只有狗來舔他的瘡痍。那乞丐死了,天使把他送到亞巴郎的懷抱裡。那個富翁也死了,被人埋葬了。
「那富翁在陰間,痛苦地舉目一望,遠遠看見亞巴郎,及在他懷中的拉匝祿,便喊叫說:父親亞巴郎!可憐我吧!請打發拉匝祿,用他的指尖,蘸點水,來涼潤我的舌頭,因為我在這火燄中,非常痛苦。
「亞巴郎說:孩子,你應記得,你活著的時候,已享盡了你的福,而拉匝祿同樣也受盡了苦。現在,他在這裡受安慰,而你應受苦了。除此之外,在我們與你們之間,隔著一個巨大的深淵,就算有人願意,從這邊去到你們那邊,也不可能,從那邊來到我們這邊,也不可能。
「那富翁說:父親!那麼,就請你打發拉匝祿到我家去,因為我有五個兄弟,叫拉匝祿警告他們,免得他們也來到這痛苦的地方。
「亞巴郎說:他們自有梅瑟及先知,讓他們聽從好了。
「那富翁說:不,父親亞巴郎!倘若有人從死者中,到他們那裡,他們必會悔改。
「亞巴郎給他說:如果他們不聽從梅瑟及先知,縱使有人從死者中復活,他們也不會信服。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 16:19-31

19 “There was a rich man, who was clothed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day. 20 And at his gate lay a poor man named Lazarus, full of sores, 21 who desired to be fed with what fell from the rich man’s table; moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 The poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried; 23 and in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes, and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 And he called out, `Father Abraham, have mercy upon me, and send Lazarus to dip the end of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am in anguish in this flame.’ 25 But Abraham said, `Son, remember that you in your lifetime received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner evil things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in anguish. 26 And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, in order that those who would pass from here to you may not be able, and none may cross from there to us.’ 27 And he said, `Then I beg you, father, to send him to my father’s house, 28 for I have five brothers, so that he may warn them, lest they also come into this place of torment.’ 29 But Abraham said, `They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.’ 30 And he said, `No, father Abraham; but if some one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ 31 He said to him, `If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be convinced if some one should rise from the dead.'”

主日福音 路16:19-31

耶穌對法利塞人說:「有一個富翁,身穿紫紅袍及細麻衣,天天奢華宴樂。另有一個乞丐,名叫拉匝祿,滿身瘡痍,躺臥在富翁的大門前。拉匝祿指望得到從富翁桌上掉下的碎屑充飢,但只有狗來舔他的瘡痍。那乞丐死了,天使把他送到亞巴郎的懷抱裡。那個富翁也死了,被人埋葬了。那富翁在陰間,痛苦地舉目一望,遠遠看見亞巴郎,及在他懷中的拉匝祿,便喊叫說:父親亞巴郎!可憐我吧!請打發拉匝祿,用他的指尖,蘸點水,來涼潤我的舌頭,因為我在這火燄中,非常痛苦。亞巴郎說:孩子,你應記得,你活著的時候,已享盡了你的福,而拉匝祿同樣也受盡了苦。現在,他在這裡受安慰,而你應受苦了。除此之外,在我們與你們之間,隔著一個巨大的深淵,就算有人願意,從這邊去到你們那邊,也不可能,從那邊來到我們這邊,也不可能。那富翁說:父親!那麼,就請你打發拉匝祿到我家去,因為我有五個兄弟,叫拉匝祿警告他們,免得他們也來到這痛苦的地方。亞巴郎說:他們自有梅瑟及先知,讓他們聽從好了。那富翁說:不,父親亞巴郎!倘若有人從死者中,到他們那裡,他們必會悔改。亞巴郎給他說:如果他們不聽從梅瑟及先知,縱使有人從死者中復活,他們也不會信服。」

默 想

  • 你願意做福音中的乞丐還是富翁?但富有是罪嗎?不是!
  • 我們該注意的是富翁的涼薄,乞丐的無援!
  • 公義的社會正是有能力的人分享其所有,讓無援者得到希望,得到愛!
  • 當你有能力時,豈可對受苦的兄弟姊妹無動於衷,不加援手?
