神父講道 – 常年期第三十二主日 (2020年11月8日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 25:1-13

那時候,耶穌給門徒講了這個比喻,說:
「天國好比十個童女,拿著自己的燈,出去迎接新郎。她們中,五個是糊塗的,五個是明智的。糊塗的,拿了燈,卻沒有隨身帶油;而明智的,拿了燈,又在壺裡帶了油。因為新郎遲遲未來,她們都打盹睡著了。
「半夜,有人喊說:新郎來了,你們出來迎接吧!那些童女於是都起來,裝備她們的燈。糊塗的,對明智的說:把你們的油,分些給我
們吧!因為我們的燈,快要熄滅了!明智的回答說:怕為我們和你們都不夠,更好你們到賣油的地方,為自己買吧!
「她們去買的時候,新郎到了;那準備好了的,就同新郎進去,共赴婚宴;門於是關上了。後來,其餘的童女也來了,說:主啊!主啊!給我們開門吧!新郎卻回答說:我實在告訴你們:我不認識你們。
「所以,你們應該醒寤,因為你們不知道那日子,也不知道那時辰。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 25:1-13

Jesus told his disciples this parable: “The kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones, when taking their lamps, brought no oil with them, but the wise brought flasks of oil with their lamps. Since the bridegroom was long delayed, they all became drowsy and fell asleep. At midnight, there was a cry, ‘Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’ Then all those virgins got up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the wise ones replied, ‘No, for there may not be enough for us and you. Go instead to the merchants and buy some for yourselves.’ While they went off to buy it, the bridegroom came and those who were ready went into the wedding feast with him. Then the door was locked. Afterwards the other virgins came and said, ‘Lord, Lord, open the door for us!’ But he said in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, I do not know you.’ Therefore, stay awake, for you know neither the day nor the hour.”

恭讀聖若望福音 14:1-6

那時候,耶穌對門徒說:「你們心裡不要煩亂;你們要信賴天主,也要信賴我。在我父的家裡,有許多住處。我去,原是為給你們預備地方;如不然,我早就告訴了你們。我去了,為你們預備了地方以後,我必再來接你們到我那裡去,為的是我在那裡,你們也在那裡。我去的地方,你們知道往那裡去的路。」
多默說:「主!我們不知道你往那裡去,怎麼會知道那條路呢?」
耶穌回答說:「我是道路、真理、生命,除非經過我,誰也不能到父那裡去。」

Funeral Mass (November 7, 2020)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 14:1-6

Jesus said to his disciple, “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and take you to myself, so that where I am you also may be. Where [I] am going you know the way.”
Thomas said to him, “Master, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?”
Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth* and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.
