聖西滿及聖猶達 (宗徒) (慶日)

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。
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。

—上主的話。

(Feast of Saints Simon and Jude, Apostles)

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

Jesus went up 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.

恭讀聖路加福音 13:22-30

那時候,耶穌經過城市和鄉村,隨處施教,朝著耶路撒冷走去。有一個人問他說:「主!得救的人果然不多嗎?」耶穌對眾人說:「你們竭力由窄門而入吧!因為將有許多人,我告訴你們:想要進去,而不得進入。及至家主起來把門關上,你們在外面站著,開始敲門說:主!請給我們開門吧!他要回答你們說:我不認識你們是從那裏來的。那時,你們會說:我們曾在你面前吃過喝過;你也曾在我們的街市上教導過人。他要說:我告訴你:我不認識你們是從那裏來的;你們這些作惡的人,離開我去吧!幾時你們看見亞巴郎、依撒格、雅各伯及眾先知在天主的國裏,你們卻被拋棄在外,那裏要有哀號和切齒。將有從東到西,從北到南而來的人,在天主的國裏坐席。看吧!有最後的將成為最先的,也有最先的將成為最後的。」

—上主的話。

(30th Week in Ordinary Time – Wednesday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 13:22-30

Jesus passed through towns and villages, teaching as he went and making his way to Jerusalem. Someone asked him, “Lord, will only a few people be saved?” He answered them, “Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I tell you, will attempt to enter but will not be strong enough. After the master of the house has arisen and locked the door, then will you stand outside knocking and saying, ‘Lord, open the door for us.’ He will say to you in reply, ‘I do not know where you are from.’ And you will say, ‘We ate and drank in your company and you taught in our streets.’ Then he will say to you, ‘I do not know where you are from. Depart from me, all you evildoers!’ And there will be wailing and grinding of teeth when you see Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and all the prophets in the Kingdom of God and you yourselves cast out. And people will come from the east and the west and from the north and the south and will recline at table in the Kingdom of God. For behold, some are last who will be first, and some are first who will be last.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

恭讀聖路加福音 13:18-21

那時候,耶穌說:「天主的國相似什麼?我要把它比作什麼呢?它相似一粒芥子,人取來種在自己的園中,它遂生長起來,成為大樹,天上的飛鳥都棲息在它的枝頭上。」他又說:「我要把天主的國比作什麼呢?它相似酵母,女人取來藏在三斗麵中,直到全部發酵。」

(30th Week in Ordinary Time – Tuesday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 13:18-21

Jesus said, “What is the Kingdom of God like? To what can I compare it? It is like a mustard seed that a man took and planted in the garden. When it was fully grown, it became a large bush and the birds of the sky dwelt in its branches.”
Again he said, “To what shall I compare the Kingdom of God? It is like yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of wheat flour until the whole batch of dough was leavened.”

恭讀聖路加福音 13:10-17

安息日,耶穌在一會堂裏施教。有一女人,病魔纏身已十八年了,傴僂著,完全不能直立。耶穌見了她,便叫她過來,對她說:「女人,你的病已消除了。」遂給她按手,她即刻就挺直起來,光榮天主。會堂長因氣惱耶穌在安息日治病,便對眾人說:「有六天應當工作,你們在這些日子裏可來治病,但不可在安息日這一天。」主回答他說:「假善人哪!你們每一個人在安息日,有不解下槽上的牛驢,牽去飲水的嗎?這個女人原是亞巴郎的女兒,她被撒殫纏住已經有十八年了,在安息日這一天,就不該解開她的束縛嗎?」當耶穌講這話時,所有敵對他的人,個個慚愧;所有民眾因他所行的種種輝煌事蹟,莫不歡喜。

(30th Week in Ordinary Time – Monday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 13:10-17

Jesus was teaching in a synagogue on the sabbath. And a woman was there who for eighteen years had been crippled by a spirit; she was bent over, completely incapable of standing erect. When Jesus saw her, he called to her and said, “Woman, you are set free of your infirmity.” He laid his hands on her, and she at once stood up straight and glorified God. But the leader of the synagogue, indignant that Jesus had cured on the sabbath, said to the crowd in reply, “There are six days when work should be done. Come on those days to be cured, not on the sabbath day.” The Lord said to him in reply, “Hypocrites! Does not each one of you on the sabbath untie his ox or his ass from the manger and lead it out for watering? This daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound for eighteen years now, ought she not to have been set free on the sabbath day from this bondage?” When he said this, all his adversaries were humiliated; and the whole crowd rejoiced at all the splendid deeds done by him.

神父講道 – 常年期第三十主日 傳教節 (2021年10月24日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 16:15-20

那時候,耶穌顯現給十一位宗徒,對他們說:「你們往普天下去,向一切受造物,宣傳福音,信而受洗的,必要得救;但不信的,必被判罪。信的人,必有這些奇蹟相隨:因我的名驅逐魔鬼、說新語言、手拿毒蛇,甚或喝了什麼致命的毒物,也不會受害;按手在病人身上,可使人痊瘉。」
主耶穌給宗徒說了這些話以後,就被接升天,坐在天主的右邊。
宗徒出去,到處宣講;主與他們合作,並以奇蹟相隨,證實所傳的道理。

—上主的話。

(30th Sunday in Ordinary Time – Mission Sunday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 16:15-20

He said to them, “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned. These signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will drive out demons, they will speak new languages. They will pick up serpents [with their hands], and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not harm them. They will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
So then the Lord Jesus, after he spoke to them, was taken up into heaven and took his seat at the right hand of God. But they went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the word through accompanying signs.

恭讀聖路加福音 13:1-9

正在那時,來了幾個人把有關加里肋亞人的事,即比拉多把他們的血,與他們的祭品攙和在一起的事,報告給耶穌。他回答說:「你們以為這些加里肋亞人,比其他所有的加里肋亞人更有罪,才遭此禍害嗎?不是的。我告訴你們:如果你們不悔改,你們都要同樣喪亡。或如史羅亞塔倒下,而壓死的那十八個人,你們以為他們比耶路撒冷的其他居民罪債更大嗎?不是的。我告訴你們:如果你們不悔改,你們都要同樣喪亡。」
耶穌又講了這個比喻說:「有一個人曾將一棵無花果樹,栽在自己的葡萄園內。他來在樹上找果子,但沒有找到,便對園丁說:「你看,我三年來在這棵無花果樹上找果子,但沒有找到,你砍掉它吧!為什麼讓它白佔土地呢?」園丁回答他說:「主人!再留它一年吧!待我在它周圍掘鬆泥土,加上肥料;將來若結果子便算了;不然的話,你就把它砍掉吧!」

(29th Week in Ordinary Time – Saturday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 13:1-9

Some people told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with the blood of their sacrifices. He said to them in reply, “Do you think that because these Galileans suffered in this way they were greater sinners than all other Galileans? By no means! But I tell you, if you do not repent, you will all perish as they did! Or those eighteen people who were killed when the tower at Siloam fell on them— do you think they were more guilty than everyone else who lived in Jerusalem? By no means! But I tell you, if you do not repent, you will all perish as they did!”
And he told them this parable: “There once was a person who had a fig tree planted in his orchard, and when he came in search of fruit on it but found none, he said to the gardener, ‘For three years now I have come in search of fruit on this fig tree but have found none. So cut it down. Why should it exhaust the soil?’ He said to him in reply, ‘Sir, leave it for this year also, and I shall cultivate the ground around it and fertilize it; it may bear fruit in the future. If not you can cut it down.’”

那時候,耶穌向群眾說:「幾時你們看見雲彩由西方升起,立刻就說,要下大雨了;果然是這樣。幾時南風吹來,就說,天氣會熱了;果然是這樣。假善人哪!你們知道觀察地上及天上的氣象,怎麼不能觀察這個時機呢?你們為什麼不能由自己來辨別正義的事呢?當你同你的對頭去見官長時,尚在路上,你得設法與他了結,怕他拉你到法官前,判官把你交給刑役,而刑役把你押在獄中。我告訴你:非等你還清最後的一分錢,斷不能從那裏出來。」

(29th Week in Ordinary Time – Friday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 12:54-59

Jesus said to the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising in the west you say immediately that it is going to rain–and so it does; and when you notice that the wind is blowing from the south you say that it is going to be hot–and so it is. You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky; why do you not know how to interpret the present time?
“Why do you not judge for yourselves what is right? If you are to go with your opponent before a magistrate, make an effort to settle the matter on the way; otherwise your opponent will turn you over to the judge, and the judge hand you over to the constable, and the constable throw you into prison. I say to you, you will not be released until you have paid the last penny.”

那時候,耶穌對門徒說:「我來是為把火投在地上,我是多麼切望它已經燃燒起來!我有一種應受的洗禮,我是如何焦急,直到它得以完成!你們以為我來是給地上送和平嗎?不,我告訴你們:而是來送分裂。因為從今以後,一家五口的,將要分裂:三個反對兩個,兩個反對三個。他們將要分裂:父親反對兒子,兒子反對父親;母親反對女兒,女兒反對母親;婆母反對兒媳,兒媳反對婆母。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 12:49-53

Jesus said to his disciples: “I have come to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already blazing! There is a baptism with which I must be baptized, and how great is my anguish until it is accomplished! Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. From now on a household of five will be divided, three against two and two against three; a father will be divided against his son and a son against his father, a mother against her daughter and a daughter against her mother, a mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.”

恭讀聖路加福音 12:39-48

那時候,耶穌對門徒說:「你們應該明白這一點:如果家主知道盜賊何時要來,【他必要醒寤,】決不容許自己的房屋被挖穿。你們也應當準備,因為在你們料想不到的時辰,人子就來了。」
伯多祿說:「主!你講的這個比喻,是為我們呢?還是為眾人?」主說:「究竟誰是那忠信及精明的管家?主人派他管理自己的家僕,按時配給食糧。主人來時,看見他如此行事,那僕人才是有福的。我實在告訴你們:主人必要委派他,管理自己的一切財產。如果那個僕人心裏說:我的主人必然遲來;他便開始拷打僕婢,也吃也喝也醉酒。在他想不到的日子,不知覺的時刻,那僕人的主人就會來到,必要剷除他,使他與不信者遭受同樣的命運。那知道主人的旨意,而偏不準備,或竟不奉行他旨意的僕人,必然要多受拷打;那不知道而做了應受拷打之事的,要少受拷打。給誰的多,向誰要的也多;交託誰的多,向誰索取的也格外多。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 12:39-48

Jesus said to his disciples: “Be sure of this: if the master of the house had known the hour when the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. You also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.”
Then Peter said, “Lord, is this parable meant for us or for everyone?” And the Lord replied, “Who, then, is the faithful and prudent steward whom the master will put in charge of his servants to distribute the food allowance at the proper time? Blessed is that servant whom his master on arrival finds doing so. Truly, I say to you, he will put him in charge of all his property. But if that servant says to himself, ‘My master is delayed in coming,’ and begins to beat the menservants and the maidservants, to eat and drink and get drunk, then that servant’s master will come on an unexpected day and at an unknown hour and will punish the servant severely and assign him a place with the unfaithful. That servant who knew his master’s will but did not make preparations nor act in accord with his will shall be beaten severely; and the servant who was ignorant of his master’s will but acted in a way deserving of a severe beating shall be beaten only lightly. Much will be required of the person entrusted with much, and still more will be demanded of the person entrusted with more.”

Blessed are those servants whom the master finds vigilant on his arrival. Amen, I say to you, he will gird himself, have them recline at table, and proceed to wait on them. And should he come in the second or third watch and find them prepared in this way, blessed are those servants.”
