神父講道 – 新春主日 (2020年1月26日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 5:1-12

那時候,耶穌一見群眾,就上了山,坐下;他的門徒來到他面前,他於是開口教訓他們說:「神貧的人是有福的,因為天國是他們的。哀慟的人是有福的,因為他們要受安慰。溫良的人是有福的,因為他們要承受土地。飢渴慕義的人是有福的,因為他們要得飽飫。憐憫人的人是有福的,因為他們要受憐憫。心裡潔淨的人是有福的,因為他們要看見天主。締造和平的人是有福的,因為他們要稱為天主的子女。為義而受迫害的人是有福的,因為天國是他們的。幾時人為了我而辱罵迫害你們,捏造一切壞話毀謗你們,你們是有福的。你們歡喜踴躍吧!因為你們在天上的賞報是豐厚的。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 5:1-12

When he saw the crowds, he went up the mountain, and after he had sat down, his disciples came to him. He began to teach them, saying:
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land. Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you [falsely] because of me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

神父講道 – 農曆新春求恩彌撒 (週六) (2020年1月25日)

恭讀聖若望福音 1:1-12

在起初已有聖言,聖言與天主同在,聖言就是天主。聖言在起初,就與天主同在。萬物是藉著他而造成的;凡受造的,沒有一樣不是由他而造成的。在他內有生命,這生命是人的光。光在黑暗中照耀,黑暗決勝不過他。
曾有一人,是由天主派遣來的,名叫若翰。這人來,是為作證,為給光作證,為使眾人藉他而信。他不是那光,只是為給那光作證。
那照亮每人的真光,正在進入這世界;他已在世界上,世界原是藉他造成的;但世界卻不認識他。他來到了自己的地方,自己的人卻沒有接受他。但是,凡接受他的,他給他們,即給那些信他名字的人權能,好成為天主的子女。

—上主的話。

(2nd Week in Ordinary Time – Saturday – Chinese New Year)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 1:1-12

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through him, and without him nothing came to be. What came to be through him was life, and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. A man named John was sent from God. He came for testimony, to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came to testify to the light. The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world came to be through him, but the world did not know him. He came to what was his own, but his own people did not accept him. But to those who did accept him he gave power to become children of God, to those who believe in his name.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

神父講道 – 農曆除夕團圓彌撒 (週五) (2020年1月24日)

恭讀聖路加福音 12:22-32

那時候,耶穌對他的門徒說:「我告訴你們:不要為生命思慮吃什麼,也不要為身體思慮穿什麼,因為生命貴於食物,身體貴於衣服。
「你們看看烏鴉,牠們不播種,也不收割;牠們沒有庫房,也沒有倉廩,天主尚且養活牠們,你們比起飛鳥更要尊貴多少呢?你們中誰能運用思慮,使自己的壽數延長一刻呢?如果你們連極小的事,也做不來,為什麼要思慮別的事呢?
「你們看看百合花,是怎樣生長的:它們不勞作,也不紡織;可是,我告訴你們:連撒羅滿在他極榮華的時候,所披戴的,也不如這些花中的一朵。田野間的野草,今天還在,明天就投入爐中,天主尚且這樣裝飾,何況你們呢!
「小信德的人啊!你們不要謀求吃什麼,喝什麼,也不要憂愁掛心,因為,這一切都是世上外邦人所尋求的;至於你們,你們的父知道你們需要這些。你們只要尋求他的國,這些自會加給你們。
「你們小小的羊群,不要害怕!因為你們的父喜歡把天國賜給你們。」

—上主的話。

(2nd Week in Ordinary Time – Friday – Chinese New Year Eve)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 12:22-32

He said to [his] disciples, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life and what you will eat, or about your body and what you will wear. For life is more than food and the body more than clothing. Notice the ravens: they do not sow or reap; they have neither storehouse nor barn, yet God feeds them. How much more important are you than birds! Can any of you by worrying add a moment to your life-span? If even the smallest things are beyond your control, why are you anxious about the rest? Notice how the flowers grow. They do not toil or spin. But I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of them. If God so clothes the grass in the field that grows today and is thrown into the oven tomorrow, will he not much more provide for you, O you of little faith? As for you, do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, and do not worry anymore. All the nations of the world seek for these things, and your Father knows that you need them. Instead, seek his kingdom, and these other things will be given you besides. Do not be afraid any longer, little flock, for your Father is pleased to give you the kingdom.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

恭讀聖若望福音 15:9-17

那時候,耶穌對門徒說:「正如父愛了我,同樣我也愛了你們;你們應存在我的愛內。如果你們遵守我的命令,便存在我的愛內,正如我遵守了我父的命令而存在他的愛內一樣。我對你們講論了這些事,為使我的喜樂存在你們內,使你們的喜樂圓滿無缺。這是我的命令:你們該彼此相愛,如同我愛了你們一樣。人若為自己的朋友捨掉性命,再沒有比這更大的愛情了。你們如果實行我所命令你們的,你們就是我的朋友。我不再稱你們為僕人,因為僕人不知道他主人所做的事。我稱你們為朋友,因為凡由我父聽來的一切,我都顯示給你們了。不是你們揀選了我,而是我揀選了你們,並派你們去結果實,去結常存的果實;如此,你們因我的名無論向父求什麼,他必賜給你們。這就是我命令你們的:你們應該彼此相愛。」

—上主的話。

(Memorial of Saint Francis de Sales, bishop and doctor of the Church)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 15:9-17

Jesus said to his disciples, “As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. “I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and your joy may be complete. This is my commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater love than this,j to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. I no longer call you slaves, because a slave does not know what his master is doing. I have called you friends, because I have told you everything I have heard from my Father. It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you. This I command you: love one another.”

那時,耶穌同自己的門徒退到海邊去,有許多民眾從加里肋亞跟隨了來,並有從猶太、耶路撒冷、依杜默雅、約旦河彼岸、提洛和漆東一帶地方的許多群眾,聽說他所作的一切事,都來到他跟前。因為人多,他遂吩咐他的門徒,為自己備好一隻小船,免得人擁擠他。因為他治好了許多人,所以,凡有病災的人都向他湧來,要觸摸他。邪魔一見了他,就俯伏在他面前喊說:「你是天主子。」他卻嚴厲責斥他們,不許把他顯露出來。

(2nd Week in Ordinary Time – Thursday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 3:7-12

Jesus withdrew toward the sea with his disciples. A large number of people followed from Galilee and from Judea. Hearing what he was doing, a large number of people came to him also from Jerusalem, from Idumea, from beyond the Jordan, and from the neighborhood of Tyre and Sidon. He told his disciples to have a boat ready for him because of the crowd, so that they would not crush him. He had cured many and, as a result, those who had diseases were pressing upon him to touch him. And whenever unclean spirits saw him they would fall down before him and shout, “You are the Son of God.” He warned them sternly not to make him known.

那時候,耶穌對群眾說:「天國好像是藏在地裏的寶貝;人找到了,就把它藏起來,高興地去賣掉他所有的一切,買了那塊地。天國又好像一個尋找完美珍珠的商人;他一找到一顆寶貴的珍珠,就去,賣掉他所有的一切,買了它。」

Jesus said to the crowd, “The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure buried in a field, which a person finds and hides again, and out of joy goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant searching for fine pearls. When he finds a pearl of great price, he goes and sells all that he has and buys it.

當時,若翰的門徒和法利塞人正在禁食。有人來向耶穌說:「為什麼若翰的門徒和法利塞人的門徒禁食,而你的門徒卻不禁食呢?」耶穌對他們說:「伴郎豈能在新郎還與他們在一起的時候禁食?他們與新郎在一起的時候,決不能禁食。但日子將要來到:當新郎從他們中被劫去時,在那一天,他們就要禁食了。沒有人將未漂過的布補在舊衣服上的;不然,補上的那塊新布要扯裂了舊的,破綻就更加壞了。也沒有人把新酒裝在舊皮囊裏的;不然,酒漲破了皮囊,酒和皮囊都喪失了;而是新酒應裝在新皮囊裏。」

—上主的話。

(2nd Week in Ordinary Time – Monday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 2:18-22

The disciples of John and of the Pharisees were accustomed to fast. People came to Jesus and objected, “Why do the disciples of John and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?” Jesus answered them, “Can the wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them they cannot fast. But the days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast on that day. No one sews a piece of unshrunken cloth on an old cloak. If he does, its fullness pulls away, the new from the old, and the tear gets worse. Likewise, no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the skins are ruined. Rather, new wine is poured into fresh wineskins.”

若翰又作證說:「我看見聖神,彷彿鴿子,從天降下,停在他身上。我也不曾認識他,但那派遣我來以水施洗的,給我說:你看見聖神降下,停在誰身上,誰就是那要以聖神施洗的人。
「我看見了,我便作證:他就是天主子。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 1:29-34

John the Baptist saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world. He is the one of whom I said, ‘A man is coming after me who ranks ahead of me because he existed before me.’ I did not know him, but the reason why I came baptizing with water was that he might be made known to Israel.” John testified further, saying, “I saw the Spirit come down like a dove from heaven and remain upon him. I did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘On whomever you see the Spirit come down and remain, he is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’ Now I have seen and testified that he is the Son of God.”

那時候,有一個人來到耶穌跟前說:「師傅!我該行什麼『善』,為得永生?」耶穌對他說:「你為什麼問我關於『善』?善的只有一個。如果你願意進入生命,就該遵守誡命。」他對耶穌說:「什麼誡命?」耶穌說:「就是:不可殺人,不可奸淫,不可偷盜,不可作假見證;應孝敬父母,應愛你的近人,如愛你自己。」那少年人對耶穌說:「這一切我都遵守了,還缺少什麼?」耶穌對他說:「你若願意是成全的,去!變賣你所有的,施捨給窮人,你必有寶藏在天上;然後來跟隨我。」少年人一聽這話,就憂悶的走了,因為他擁有許多產業。
於是,耶穌對門徒說:「我實在告訴你們:富人難進天國。我再告訴你們:駱駝穿過針孔,比富人進天國還容易。」門徒們聽了,就非常驚異說:「這樣,誰還能得救呢?」耶穌注視他們說:「為人這是不可能的;但為天主,一切都是可能的。」

(Memorial of Saint Anthony, abbot)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 19:16-26

Now someone approached him and said, “Teacher, what good must I do to gain eternal life?” He answered him, “Why do you ask me about the good? There is only One who is good. If you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.” He asked him, “Which ones?” And Jesus replied, “ ‘You shall not kill; you shall not commit adultery; you shall not steal; you shall not bear false witness; honor your father and your mother’; and ‘you shall love your neighbor as yourself.’” The young man said to him, “All of these I have observed. What do I still lack?” Jesus said to him, “If you wish to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to [the] poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” When the young man heard this statement, he went away sad, for he had many possessions. Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Amen, I say to you, it will be hard for one who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for one who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.” When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and said, “Who then can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and said, “For human beings this is impossible, but for God all things are possible.”
