神父講道 – 聖高爾乃略 (教宗、殉道) 及聖西彼廉 (主教、殉道) (紀念) (週一) (2019年9月16日)

恭讀聖若望福音 17:11-19

那時候,耶穌舉目向天說:「從今以後,我不在世界上了,你賜給我的人仍在世界上,我卻到你那裏去。聖父啊!求你因你的名,保全那些你所賜給我的人,使他們合而為一,正如我們一樣。當我和他們同在時,我因你的名,保全了你所賜給我的人,護衛了他們,其中除了那喪亡之子,沒有喪亡一個,這是為應驗經上的話。但如今我到你那裏去,我在世上講這話,是為叫他們的心充滿我的喜樂。我已將你的話授給了他們,世界卻憎恨他們,因為他們不屬於世界,就如我不屬於世界一樣。我不求你將他們從世界上撤去,只求你保護他們脫免邪惡。他們不屬於世界,就如我不屬於世界一樣。求你以真理祝聖他們;你的話就是真理。就如你派遣我到世界上來,照樣我也派遣他們到世界上去。我為他們祝聖我自己,為叫他們也因真理而被祝聖。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 17:11-19

And now I will no longer be in the world, but they are in the world, while I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one just as we are. When I was with them I protected them in your name that you gave me, and I guarded them, and none of them was lost except the son of destruction, in order that the scripture might be fulfilled. But now I am coming to you. I speak this in the world so that they may share my joy completely. I gave them your word, and the world hated them, because they do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world. I do not ask that you take them out of the world but that you keep them from the evil one. They do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world. Consecrate them in the truth. Your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, so I sent them into the world. And I consecrate myself for them, so that they also may be consecrated in truth.

主保瞻禮感恩祭 – 光榮十字聖架 (2019年9月14日)

恭讀聖若望福音 3:13-17

那時候,耶穌對尼苛德摩說:
「沒有人上過天,除了那自天降下,而仍在天上的人子。正如梅瑟曾在曠野裡高舉了蛇,人子也應照樣,被舉起來,使凡信的人,在他內獲得永生。」
天主竟然這樣愛了世界,甚至賜下了自己的獨生子,使凡信他的人,不至喪亡,反而獲得永生,因為天主沒有派遣子到世界上來,審判世界,而是為叫世界,藉著他而獲救。

Jesus said to Nicodemus: “No one has gone up to heaven except the one who has come down from heaven, the Son of Man. And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.”
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.

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

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.”

神父講道 – 金口聖若望 (主教、聖師) (紀念) (週五) (2019年9月13日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 4:1-10,13-20

那時候,耶穌在海邊開始施教,有一大夥群眾聚集在他跟前,他只得上了一隻船,坐在海面上,所有的群眾都在海邊陸地上。他用比喻教訓他們許多事,在施教時,他向他們說:「你們聽:有個撒種的出去撒種。他撒種的時候,有的落在路旁,飛鳥來把它吃了;有的落在石頭地裏,那裏沒有多少土壤,即刻發了芽,因為所有的土壤不深,太陽一出來,被曬焦了,又因為沒有根,就乾枯了;有的落在荊棘中,荊棘長起來,把它窒息了,就沒有結果實;有的落在好他裏,就長大成熟,結了果實,有的結三十倍,有的結六十倍,有的一百倍。」他又說:「有耳聽的,聽吧!」
當耶穌獨自一人的時候,那些跟從的人和十二門徒便問他這些比喻的意義。耶穌對他們說:「你們不明白這個比喻,又怎能明白其他的一切比喻呢?那撒種的人撒的,是所講的『話』。那撒在路旁的『話』,是指人聽了後,撒殫立時來,把撒在他們心裏的『話』奪了去。同樣,那撒在石頭地裏的,是指人聽了這『話』後,立刻欣然接受;但他們心裏沒有根,不能持久,及至為了這『話』遭遇艱難或迫害,立刻就跌倒了。還有那撒在荊棘中,是指人聽了這『話』後,世俗的焦慮,財富的迷惑,以及其他的貪慾進來,把『話』蒙住了,結不出果實。那撒在好地裏的,是指人聽了這『話』,就接受了,並結了果實,有的三十倍,有的六十倍,有的一百倍。」

(Memorial of Saint John Chrysostom, Bishop and Doctor of the Church)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 4:1-10,13-20

On another occasion he began to teach by the sea. A very large crowd gathered around him so that he got into a boat on the sea and sat down. And the whole crowd was beside the sea on land. And he taught them at length in parables, and in the course of his instruction he said to them, “Hear this! A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seed fell on the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Other seed fell on rocky ground where it had little soil. It sprang up at once because the soil was not deep. And when the sun rose, it was scorched and it withered for lack of roots. Some seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it and it produced no grain. And some seed fell on rich soil and produced fruit. It came up and grew and yielded thirty, sixty, and a hundredfold.” He added, “Whoever has ears to hear ought to hear.”
And when he was alone, those present along with the Twelve questioned him about the parables. Jesus said to them, “Do you not understand this parable? Then how will you understand any of the parables? The sower sows the word. These are the ones on the path where the word is sown. As soon as they hear, Satan comes at once and takes away the word sown in them. And these are the ones sown on rocky ground who, when they hear the word, receive it at once with joy. But they have no root; they last only for a time. Then when tribulation or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. Those sown among thorns are another sort. They are the people who hear the word, but worldly anxiety, the lure of riches, and the craving for other things intrude and choke the word, and it bears no fruit. But those sown on rich soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it and bear fruit thirty and sixty and a hundredfold.”

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 6:20-26

Raising his eyes toward his disciples Jesus said:
“Blessed are you who are poor, for the Kingdom of God is yours. Blessed are you who are now hungry, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who are now weeping, for you will laugh. Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude and insult you, and denounce your name as evil on account of the Son of Man.
“Rejoice and leap for joy on that day! Behold, your reward will be great in heaven. For their ancestors treated the prophets in the same way. But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation. But woe to you who are filled now, for you will be hungry. Woe to you who laugh now, for you will grieve and weep. Woe to you when all speak well of you, for their ancestors treated the false prophets in this way.”

那時,耶穌出去,上山祈禱;他徹夜向天主祈禱。天一亮,他把門徒叫來,由他們中揀選了十二人,並稱他們為宗徒:即西滿,耶穌又給他起名叫伯多祿,和他的兄弟安德肋、雅各伯、若望、斐理伯、巴爾多祿茂、瑪竇、多默、阿耳斐的兒子雅各伯、號稱「熱誠者」的西滿、雅各伯的兄弟猶達和猶達斯依斯加略,他成了負賣者。
耶穌同他們下山,站在一塊平地上。有他的一大群門徒和很多從猶太、耶路撒冷及提洛和漆冬海邊來的群眾,他們來是為聽他講道,並為治好自己的病症;那些被邪魔纏擾的人都被治好了。群眾都設法觸摸他,因為有一種能力從他身上出來,治好眾人。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 6:12-19

Jesus departed to the mountain to pray, and he spent the night in prayer to God. When day came, he called his disciples to himself, and from them he chose Twelve, whom he also named Apostles: Simon, whom he named Peter, and his brother Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, Simon who was called a Zealot, and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.
And he came down with them and stood on a stretch of level ground. A great crowd of his disciples and a large number of the people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the coastal region of Tyre and Sidon came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases; and even those who were tormented by unclean spirits were cured. Everyone in the crowd sought to touch him because power came forth from him and healed them all.

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 6:6-11

On a certain sabbath Jesus went into the synagogue and taught, and there was a man there whose right hand was withered. The scribes and the Pharisees watched him closely to see if he would cure on the sabbath so that they might discover a reason to accuse him. But he realized their intentions and said to the man with the withered hand, “Come up and stand before us.” And he rose and stood there. Then Jesus said to them, “I ask you, is it lawful to do good on the sabbath rather than to do evil, to save life rather than to destroy it?” Looking around at them all, he then said to him, “Stretch out your hand.” He did so and his hand was restored. But they became enraged and discussed together what they might do to Jesus.

「你們當中,誰願意建造一座塔,而不先坐下,籌算費用,看是否有力完成呢?免得他奠基以後,竟不能完工,所有看見的人,都要譏笑他,說:這個人開始建造,但不能完工。
「或者一個國王,要去同別的國王交戰,那有不先坐下,運籌一下,看能否以一萬人,去抵抗對方的兩萬人呢?如果不能,就得趁那國王,離得尚遠的時候,派遣使節,去求和。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 14:25-33

Great crowds were traveling with Jesus, and he turned and addressed them, “If anyone comes to me without hating his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple. Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple. Which of you wishing to construct a tower does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if there is enough for its completion? Otherwise, after laying the foundation and finding himself unable to finish the work the onlookers should laugh at him and say, ‘This one began to build but did not have the resources to finish.’ Or what king marching into battle would not first sit down and decide whether with ten thousand troops he can successfully oppose another king advancing upon him with twenty thousand troops? But if not, while he is still far away, he will send a delegation to ask for peace terms. In the same way, anyone of you who does not renounce all his possessions cannot be my disciple.”

While Jesus was going through a field of grain on a sabbath, his disciples were picking the heads of grain, rubbing them in their hands, and eating them. Some Pharisees said, “Why are you doing what is unlawful on the sabbath?” Jesus said to them in reply, “Have you not read what David did when he and those who were with him were hungry? How he went into the house of God, took the bread of offering, which only the priests could lawfully eat, ate of it, and shared it with his companions?” Then he said to them, “The Son of Man is lord of the sabbath.”
