神父講道 – 常年期第二十九週 (週三) (2019年10月23日)

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。」

—上主的話。

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.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

那時候,耶穌對他的門徒說:「你們要把腰束起,把燈點著,如同等候自己的主人由婚筵回來,為的是主人來到,一敲門,立刻就給他開門。主人來到時,遇見醒寤著的那些僕人,是有福的!我實在告訴你們:主人要束上腰,請他們坐席,親自前來伺候他們。他二更來也罷,三更來也罷,若遇見這樣,那些僕人才是有福的!」

Jesus said to his disciples: “Gird your loins and light your lamps and be like servants who await their master’s return from a wedding, ready to open immediately when he comes and knocks. 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.”

恭讀聖路加福音 12:13-21

那時候,人群中有一個人向耶穌說:「師傅,請吩咐我的兄弟與我分家吧!」耶穌對他說:「人哪!誰立了我做你們的判官,為你們分家呢?」遂對他們說:「你們要謹慎,躲避一切貪婪,因為一個人縱然富裕,他的生命並不在於他的資產。」
耶穌對他們設了一個比喻說:「有一個富翁,他的田地出產豐富。他心裏想道:我可怎麼辦呢?因為我已沒有地方收藏我的物產。他遂說:我要這樣做:我要拆毀我的倉房,另建更大的,好在那裏收藏我的一切穀類及財物。以後,我要對我的靈魂說:靈魂哪!你存有大量的財物,足夠多年之用,你休息吧!吃喝宴樂吧!天主卻對他說:糊塗人哪!今夜就要索回你的靈魂,你所儲備的,將歸誰呢?那為自己厚積財產而不在天主面前致富的,也是如此。」

(29th Week in Ordinary Time – Monday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 12:13-21

Someone in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, tell my brother to share the inheritance with me.” He replied to him, “Friend, who appointed me as your judge and arbitrator?” Then he said to the crowd, “Take care to guard against all greed, for though one may be rich, one’s life does not consist of possessions.”
Then he told them a parable. “There was a rich man whose land produced a bountiful harvest. He asked himself, ‘What shall I do, for I do not have space to store my harvest?’ And he said, ‘This is what I shall do: I shall tear down my barns and build larger ones. There I shall store all my grain and other goods and I shall say to myself, “Now as for you, you have so many good things stored up for many years, rest, eat, drink, be merry!”‘ But God said to him, ‘You fool, this night your life will be demanded of you; and the things you have prepared, to whom will they belong?’ Thus will it be for the one who stores up treasure for himself but is not rich in what matters to God.”

「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。
「我不但為他們祈求,而且也為那些因他們的話,而信從我的人祈求,好使他們都合而為一。父啊!就如你在我內,我在你內,使他們也在我們內合而為一,就如你在我內,我在你內,為叫世界相信,是你派遣了我。
「我將你賜給我的光榮,賜給了他們,為叫他們合而為一,就如我們原為一體一樣。我在他們內,你在我內,使他們完全合而為一,為叫世界知道:是你派遣了我,並且你愛了他們,如同愛了我一樣。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 17:11, 17-23

Jesus said, “Holy Father, keep them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one just as we are. 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. I pray not only for them, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, so that they may all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you, that they also may be in us, that the world may believe that you sent me. And I have given them the glory you gave me, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may be brought to perfection as one, that the world may know that you sent me, and that you loved them even as you loved me.”

耶穌向他的門徒說:「我告訴你們:凡在人前承認我的,人子將來也要在天主的使者前承認他;在人前否認我的,將來在天主的使者前也要被否認。凡出言干犯人子的,尚可獲得赦免;但是,褻瀆聖神的人,決不能獲得赦免。當人押送你們到會堂,到官長及有權柄的人面前時,你們不要思慮怎樣申辯,或說什麼話,因為在那個時刻,聖神必要教給你們應說的話。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 12:8-12

Jesus said to his disciples: “I tell you, everyone who acknowledges me before others the Son of Man will acknowledge before the angels of God. But whoever denies me before others will be denied before the angels of God.
“Everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but the one who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven. When they take you before synagogues and before rulers and authorities, do not worry about how or what your defense will be or about what you are to say. For the Holy Spirit will teach you at that moment what you should say.”

恭讀聖路加福音 12:1-7

那時,有成千上萬的群眾集合攏來,竟至互相踐踏。耶穌開始先對自己的門徒說:「你們要謹訪法利塞人的酵母,即他們的虛偽。但是,沒有遮掩的事,將來不被揭露的;也沒有隱藏的事,將來不被知道的。因此,你們在暗處所說的,將來必要在明處被人聽見;在內室附耳所說的,將來必要在屋頂上張揚出來。我告訴你們做我朋友的人們:你們不要害怕那些殺害肉身,而後不能更有所為的人。我要指給你們,誰是你們所應害怕的:你們應當害怕殺了以後,有權柄把人投入地獄的那一位;的確,我告訴你們: 應當害怕這一位!五隻麻雀不是賣兩文銅錢嗎﹖然而在天主前,他們中沒有一隻被遺忘的。就是你們的頭髮,也一一被數過;你們不要害怕!你們比許多麻雀尊貴多了。

Memorial Mass (October 18, 2019)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 12:1-7

Meanwhile, so many people were crowding together that they were trampling one another underfoot. He began to speak, first to his disciples, “Beware of the leaven—that is, the hypocrisy—of the Pharisees. “There is nothing concealed that will not be revealed, nor secret that will not be known. Therefore whatever you have said in the darkness will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered behind closed doors will be proclaimed on the housetops. I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body but after that can do no more. I shall show you whom to fear. Be afraid of the one who after killing has the power to cast into Gehenna; yes, I tell you, be afraid of that one. Are not five sparrows sold for two small coins? Yet not one of them has escaped the notice of God. Even the hairs of your head have all been counted. Do not be afraid. You are worth more than many sparrows.

Funeral Mass (October 18, 2019)

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

Jesus said to his disciple, “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.”

那時候,耶穌選定了七十二人,派遣他們兩個兩個地在他前面,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。不論進了那一家,先說:願這一家平安!那裏如有和平之子,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;你們不可從這一家遷移到另一家。不論進了那座城,人若接納你們,給你們擺上什麼,你們就吃什麼。要醫治城中的病人,並向他們說:天主的國已經臨近你們了。」

(Feast of Saint Luke, evangelist)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 10:1-9

The Lord Jesus appointed seventy-two disciples 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 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.'”

Jesus said to his disciples “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit. Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will preserve it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there also will my servant be. The Father will honor whoever serves me.”
