神父講道 – 常年期第二十四主日 (2021年9月12日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 8:27-35

那時候,耶穌和他的門徒起身,前往斐理伯的凱撒勒雅附近的村莊。在路上,耶穌問自己的門徒說:「人們說我是誰?」
他們回答說:「是洗者若翰;也有些人說,是厄里亞;還有些人說,是先知中的一位。」
耶穌又問他們說:「你們說我是誰呢?」
伯多祿回答說:「你是默西亞。」耶穌就嚴禁他們,不要向任何人談及他。
耶穌於是開始教訓門徒:人子必須受許多苦,被長老、司祭長和經師棄絕,且要被殺害;但三天以後,必要復活。
耶穌坦白地說了這番話。伯多祿便拉耶穌到一邊,開始諫責他。耶穌卻轉過身來,注視著自己的門徒,責斥伯多祿說:「撒旦,退到我後面去!因為你所體會的,不是天主的事,而是人的事。」
耶穌於是召集群眾和門徒,對他們說:「誰若願意跟隨我,該棄絕自己,背起自己的十字架,跟隨我,因為,誰若願意救自己的性命,必會喪失性命;但誰若為我和福音的原故,喪失自己的性命,必會救得性命。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 8:27-35

Jesus and his disciples set out for the villages of Caesarea Philippi. Along the way he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” They said in reply, “John the Baptist, others Elijah, still others one of the prophets.” And he asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter said to him in reply, “You are the Christ.” Then he warned them not to tell anyone about him.
He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer greatly and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and rise after three days. He spoke this openly. Then Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. At this he turned around and, looking at his disciples, rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan. You are thinking not as God does, but as human beings do.”
He summoned the crowd with his disciples and said to them, “Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and that of the gospel will save it.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

恭讀聖路加福音 6:43-49

耶穌對門徒說:「沒有好樹結壞果子的,也沒有壞樹結好果子的。每一棵樹憑它的果子就可認出來。人從荊棘上收不到無花果,從茨藤上也剪不到葡萄。善人從自己心中的善庫發出善來,壞人從惡庫中發出惡來,因為心裏充滿什麼,口裏就說什麼。你們為什麼稱呼我:主啊!主啊!而不行我所吩咐的呢?
「凡到我跟前,聽了我的道理而實行的,我要給你們指出,他相似什麼人:他相似一個建造房屋的人,掘地深挖,把基礎建立在磐石上,洪水瀑發時,大水沖擊那座房屋,而不能動搖它,因為它建築得好。但那聽了而不實行的,相似人在平地上不打基礎而建造房屋,洪水一沖擊,那房屋立刻傾倒,且破壞得很慘。」

—上主的話。

(23rd Week in Ordinary Time – Saturday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 6:43-49

Jesus said to his disciples: “A good tree does not bear rotten fruit, nor does a rotten tree bear good fruit. For every tree is known by its own fruit. For people do not pick figs from thornbushes, nor do they gather grapes from brambles. A good person out of the store of goodness in his heart produces good, but an evil person out of a store of evil produces evil; for from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks.
“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ but not do what I command? I will show you what someone is like who comes to me, listens to my words, and acts on them. That one is like a man building a house, who dug deeply and laid the foundation on rock; when the flood came, the river burst against that house but could not shake it because it had been well built. But the one who listens and does not act is like a person who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the river burst against it, it collapsed at once and was completely destroyed.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

那時,耶穌向門徒講比喻說:「瞎子豈能給瞎子領路?不是兩人都要跌在坑裏嗎?沒有徒弟勝過師傅的:凡受過完備教育的,僅相似自己的師傅而已。怎麼,你看見你兄弟眼中的木屑,而你眼中的木樑,倒不理會呢?你怎能對你的兄弟說:兄弟,讓我取出你眼中的木屑吧!而你竟看不見自己眼中的大樑呢?假善人啊!先取出你眼中的大樑,然後才看得清楚,以便取出你兄弟眼中的木屑。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 6:43-49

Jesus told his disciples a parable: “Can a blind person guide a blind person? Will not both fall into a pit? No disciple is superior to the teacher; but when fully trained, every disciple will be like his teacher. Why do you notice the splinter in your brother’s eye, but do not perceive the wooden beam in your own? How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me remove that splinter in your eye,’ when you do not even notice the wooden beam in your own eye? You hypocrite! Remove the wooden beam from your eye first; then you will see clearly to remove the splinter in your brother’s eye.”

恭讀聖路加福音 6:27-38

那時候,耶穌向門徒和群眾說:「我對你們說:應愛你們的仇人,善待惱恨你們的人;應祝福詛咒你們的人,為毀謗你們的人祈禱。有人打你的面頰,也把另一面轉給他;有人拿去你的外衣,也不要阻擋他拿你的內衣。凡求你的,就給他;有人拿去你的東西,別再索回。你們願意人怎樣待你們,也要怎樣待人。若你們愛那愛你們的,為你們還算什麼功德?因為連罪人也愛那愛他們的人。你們善待那善待你們的,為你們還算什麼功德?因為連罪人也這樣作。你們若借給那些有希望償還的,為你們還算什麼功德?就是罪人也借給罪人,為能如數收回。但是,你們當愛你們的仇人,善待他們;借出,不要再指望收回;如此,你們的賞報必定豐厚,且要成為至高者的子女,因為他對待忘恩負義的人和惡人是仁慈的。你們應當慈悲,就像你們的父那樣慈悲。你們不要判斷,也就不受判斷;不要定罪,也就不被定罪;你們要赦免,也就蒙赦免。你們給,也就給你們;並且還要用好的,連按帶搖,以致外溢的升斗,倒在你們的懷裏,因為你們用什麼升斗量給人,也必用什麼升斗量給你們。」

—上主的話。

(23rd Week in Ordinary Time – Thursday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 6:27-38

Jesus said to his disciples: “To you who hear I say, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. To the person who strikes you on one cheek, offer the other one as well, and from the person who takes your cloak, do not withhold even your tunic. Give to everyone who asks of you, and from the one who takes what is yours do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you. For if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do the same. If you lend money to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, and get back the same amount. But rather, love your enemies and do good to them, and lend expecting nothing back; then your reward will be great and you will be children of the Most High, for he himself is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked. Be merciful, just as also your Father is merciful.
“Stop judging and you will not be judged. Stop condemning and you will not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven. Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

(Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 1:1-16,18-23

The Book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
Abraham became the father of Isaac, Isaac the father of Jacob, Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers. Judah became the father of Perez and Zerah, whose mother was Tamar. Perez became the father of Hezron, Hezron the father of Ram, Ram the father of Amminadab. Amminadab became the father of Nahshon, Nahshon the father of Salmon, Salmon the father of Boaz, whose mother was Rahab. Boaz became the father of Obed, whose mother was Ruth. Obed became the father of Jesse, Jesse the father of David the king.
David became the father of Solomon, whose mother had been the wife of Uriah. Solomon became the father of Rehoboam, Rehoboam the father of Abijah, Abijah the father of Asaph. Asaph became the father of Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat the father of Joram, Joram the father of Uzziah. Uzziah became the father of Jotham, Jotham the father of Ahaz, Ahaz the father of Hezekiah. Hezekiah became the father of Manasseh, Manasseh the father of Amos, Amos the father of Josiah. Josiah became the father of Jechoniah and his brothers at the time of the Babylonian exile.
After the Babylonian exile, Jechoniah became the father of Shealtiel, Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel, Zerubbabel the father of Abiud. Abiud became the father of Eliakim, Eliakim the father of Azor, Azor the father of Zadok. Zadok became the father of Achim, Achim the father of Eliud, Eliud the father of Eleazar. Eleazar became the father of Matthan, Matthan the father of Jacob, Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary. Of her was born Jesus who is called the Christ.
Now this is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about. When his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found with child through the Holy Spirit. Joseph her husband, since he was a righteous man, yet unwilling to expose her to shame, decided to divorce her quietly. Such was his intention when, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home. For it is through the Holy Spirit that this child has been conceived in her. She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:
Behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel,
which means “God is with us.”

恭讀聖路加福音 6:12-19

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。

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.

Everyone in the crowd sought to touch him because power came forth from him and healed them all.

在一個安息日,耶穌進了會堂施教。在那裏有一個人,他的右手乾枯了。經師和法利塞人窺察他是否在安息日治病,好尋找藉口控告他。他看透了他們的心思,就對那枯了手的人說:「起來,站在中間!」他遂站了起來。耶穌對他們說:「我問你們:安息日是許行善呢?還是許作惡呢?是救命呢?還是喪命呢?」他環視眾人一週,就對那人說:「伸出你的手來!」那人照樣一做,他的手便復了原。他們狂怒填胸,彼此商議,要怎樣來對付耶穌。

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.

那時候,耶穌從提洛地區出來,經過漆冬,走向加里肋亞海,到了十城區的中心地帶。
有人帶來一個又聾又啞的人,求耶穌給他覆手。耶穌便帶這人離開群眾,來到一邊,把手指放進他的耳朵,並用唾沫,抹他的舌頭,然後望天歎息,向他說:「厄法達」就是說:「開了吧!」這人的耳朵就立刻開了,舌結也解了,說話也清楚了。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 7:31-37

Again Jesus left the district of Tyre and went by way of Sidon to the Sea of Galilee, into the district of the Decapolis. And people brought to him a deaf man who had a speech impediment and begged him to lay his hand on him. He took him off by himself away from the crowd. He put his finger into the man’s ears and, spitting, touched his tongue; then he looked up to heaven and groaned, and said to him, “Ephphatha!”— that is, “Be opened!” — And immediately the man’s ears were opened, his speech impediment was removed, and he spoke plainly. He ordered them not to tell anyone. But the more he ordered them not to, the more they proclaimed it. They were exceedingly astonished and they said, “He has done all things well. He makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.”

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.”

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 5:33-39

The scribes and Pharisees said to Jesus, “The disciples of John the Baptist fast often and offer prayers, and the disciples of the Pharisees do the same; but yours eat and drink.” Jesus answered them, “Can you make the wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come, and when the bridegroom is taken away from them, then they will fast in those days.” And he also told them a parable. “No one tears a piece from a new cloak to patch an old one. Otherwise, he will tear the new and the piece from it will not match the old cloak. Likewise, no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the new wine will burst the skins, and it will be spilled, and the skins will be ruined. Rather, new wine must be poured into fresh wineskins. And no one who has been drinking old wine desires new, for he says, ‘The old is good.’”
