神父講道 – 常年期第十四主日 (2022年7月3日)

恭讀聖路加福音 10:1-12,17-20

那時候,主另外選定了七十二人,派遣他們兩個兩個,在他前面,到他自己將要去的各城各地去。
耶穌對他們說:「莊稼多,而工人少,所以,你們應當求莊稼的主人,派遣工人來,收割他的莊稼。你們去吧!看,我派遣你們猶如羔羊,往狼群中。你們不要帶錢囊,不要帶口袋,也不要帶鞋;路上也不要向人請安。
「不論進入那一家,先說:願這一家平安!那裡如有和平之子,你們的和平就要停留在他身上;否則,仍歸於你們。你們要住在那一家,吃喝他們所供給的,因為工人自當有他的工資。你們不可從這一家,挪到那一家。不論進入那座城,人如果接納你們,給你們擺上什麼,你們就吃什麼。要醫治城中的病人,並給他們說:天主的國,已經臨近你們了。
「不論進入那座城,人如果不接納你們,你們就出來,到街市上,說:連你們城中,粘在我們腳上的塵土,我們也要當你們面前拍掉;但是,你們當知道:天主的國,已經臨近了。我告訴你們:在那一日,索多瑪所受的懲罰,要比這座城容易忍受。」
那七十二人,歡喜地歸來,說:「主!因著你的名號,連惡魔都屈服於我們。」
耶穌向他們說:「我看見撒旦,如同閃電一樣,自天跌下。看,我已經授予你們權柄,使你們踐踏蛇蠍,並能制伏仇敵的一切勢力;沒有什麼能傷害你們。但是,你們不要因為魔鬼屈服於你們,而喜歡,你們應當喜歡的,乃是因為你們的名字,已經登記在天上了。」

(14th Sunday in Ordinary Time)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 10:1-12,17-20

At that time the Lord appointed seventy-two others whom he sent ahead of him in pairs to every town and place he intended to visit. He said to them, “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest. Go on your way; behold, I am sending you like lambs among wolves. Carry no money bag, no sack, no sandals; and greet no one along the way. Into whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this household.’ If a peaceful person lives there, your peace will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you. Stay in the same house and eat and drink what is offered to you, for the laborer deserves his payment. Do not move about from one house to another. Whatever town you enter and they welcome you, eat what is set before you, cure the sick in it and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God is at hand for you.’ Whatever town you enter and they do not receive you, go out into the streets and say, ‘The dust of your town that clings to our feet, even that we shake off against you.’ Yet know this: the kingdom of God is at hand. I tell you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom on that day than for that town.”
The seventy-two returned rejoicing, and said, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us because of your name.” Jesus said, “I have observed Satan fall like lightning from the sky. Behold, I have given you the power to ‘tread upon serpents’ and scorpions and upon the full force of the enemy and nothing will harm you. Nevertheless, do not rejoice because the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice because your names are written in heaven.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.
