二零一九年七月二十日, 華人中,心週年郊遊, 於金門橋畔海濱公園。

Chinese Apostolate’s Annual Picnic at the Marina by the Golden Gate Bridge. July 20, 2019:

Genesis 18:20-32; Colossians 2:12-14; Luke 11:1-13. In the first reading, God assures Abraham that he would be merciful to the righteous. In his Letter to the Colossians, Paul writes that Christ took our sins to the cross, so by faith we are forgiven all our transgressions. In the Gospel, Jesus teaches the disciples how to pray to the Father.

Domenica 17A Del Tempo Ordinario

Il rapporto dell’uomo con Dio diventa preghiera di lode e di supplica. Imparare a prefare significa aprire il cuore e le labbra alla confidenza e all’Amore di Dio. In Gesù noi acquistiamo la confidenza dell’amore filiale.

 

常年期第十七主日

今天的福音記述耶穌教給我們「天主經」,目的在教我們祈禱的方法和態度。耶穌告訴我們 ,祂的父親,也是我們的父親。這父親愛我們甚於世上的父親,我們要信賴祂,依靠祂 ,在日常生活中無論快樂或痛苦,都可以向祂訴說,就像小孩子對他最慈愛的父親一樣 ,不單是對父親有所要求才和祂說話,而是盡情傾吐心曲 。這是祈禱的態度。

耶穌也教我們祈禱要有恆心,有信心。要記得 ,天主不會拒絕我們的要求,因為耶穌說過:「凡祈求的,必得到;尋找的,必找到;敲門的,門必被打開」。雖然我們不一定得到自己所求的,但要相信,我們的祈禱是不會白費的,天主知道什麼對我們是最好的,也知道什麼是滿足我們的要求最適合的時候刻。祂是個慈父,總會給我們最好的一份。

愛心、信心和恆心是祈禱的關鍵。

 

From Fr. Gael: Jesus today gives the disciples the prayer of the “Our Father.” He connects this prayer with further words on the generosity of God with his children and with the necessity of insistent prayer. That God is generous is not hard to believe. We have only to start with the Book of Genesis and read forward to the end of the New Testament. That generosity perseveres despite the infidelity of humanity in keeping its covenant with God who is faithful. The next part on insistent prayer becomes a little more challenging. We usually go to God with needs that with some sense of urgency we want fulfilled immediately. Our urgency is thrust upon God with a certain unqualified tolerance for anything less than what we pray for. How generous of us. The finite places demand upon the Infinite. But ironically Jesus tells us to be insistent and not give up. This is the illogically wonderful generous love of our God for us. Incumbent upon should be some sense of gratitude for this goodness of God. And that gratitude should be expressed in prayerful praise of such a God.  In every mass the priest says at the beginning of Mass and also at the end of Mass, “Let us pray.” Well… that “let us pray” should be a much more frequent part of our daily vocabulary. “Let us pray for that.” –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

Genesis 18:1-10a; Colossians 1:24-28; Luke 10:38-42. In the first reading, Abraham gladly welcomes three strangers into his home. Saint Paul reminds us that it is always Jesus Christ we proclaim. In the Gospel, Martha and Mary welcome Jesus into their homes in different ways.

 

Domenica 16A Del Tempo Ordinario

Dio si è fatto nostro ospite in Cristo, entrando nella nostra vita. “alla sera della vita—dice San Giovanni della Croce—saremo giudicati sull’amore.” Questa verità ci faccia riconoscere Gesù nelle concrete situazioni quotidiane.

常年期第十六主日

今天的讀經一和福音都是和待客之道有關,意義深遠,讀經一記述亞巴郎招待三位神秘的人物的情形。亞巴郎心中常常想到天主,所以看到三個人站在他面前,直覺地感到這三個人帶着天主的威能走近,將有一件重要而神秘的事發生。因此他俯伏在地,給他們行禮,招呼他們休息,請他們吃飯。他的款待是真諴的,表現出他深愛天主,和對天主的訓誨絕對服從。

福音叙述了天主聖子參加了世人的筵席,耶穌以居留在人間的天主聖子身份,參加這次饗宴。事情發生在伯大尼,瑪爾大的家中,祂所接受到的款待和亞巴郎對客人的款待相似,亞巴郎在樹下侍候,而瑪爾大卻被許多準備工作弄得心煩意亂,向耶穌抱怨妹妹什麼都不幫忙。做着侍候天主的工作固然是必需的,但聆聽天主的話更重要。耶穌稱讚瑪利亞選了最好的一份。

但願我們能懷着瑪利亞的心神,去做瑪爾大的工作,在工作的時候,心中常懷敬主愛主聆聽主音的熱忱。

 

From Fr. Gael:

Martha gets a reputation for being a bit OCD in today’s Gospel. The home of Lazarus, Martha and Mary is a place where Jesus can go to be in an environment of family. He can rest his body and widen his heart in the company of dear friends. That is precisely why Martha can speak to him the way she did (and does at the scene of the resurrection of Lazarus). She is busy about the details of hospitality and her sister Mary is just enjoying the company of Jesus with her brother Lazarus. Martha feels taken advantage of by her sister. It is really quite natural that she presents her complaint to Jesus. It is the reply of Jesus that is interesting. He gives an answer which certainly was not what Martha expected, but which offers Martha another perspective on what is important in life. “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her.” The spirit is more important than the many details of hospitality. And Jesus would have preferred less details of hospitality and the greater presence of Martha with Him. What does this say to me?

Deuteronomy 30:10-14; Colossians 1:15-20; Luke 10: 25-37. In the first reading, Moses calls on the people to heed the voice of God written in their hearts. The second reading reminds us of Christ Jesus as the image of the invisible God, through whom all things were created and who made peace by the blood of his cross. In the Gospel, Jesus points to the Good Samaritan, with his unselfish works of mercy, as an example of a good neighbor.

 

Domenica 15A Del Tempo Ordinario

 

La legge di Dio è un dono per la nostra vera libertà. Accolta come espressione del dinamismo della vita, che scaturisce dall’amore, la Legge di Dio permette di entrare nella luce che indica il cammino verso il regno. Il santo Vangelo ci aiuta a vivere la Legge dell’Amore che porta frutti di bene.

 

常年期第十五主日
今天的讀經以天主的法律為中心,讀經一:「你們必須聽從上主你們的天主的話,謹守這法律上所記載的誡命和法令」。(申命記30:14)這些法令從一始就銘刻在人的心裏,就是愛!

 

今天的福音記述法律博士試探耶穌,詢問有關進入永生之路,耶穌明知他的詭計,要他親自說出進入永生之路是全心、全靈、全力、全意愛上主,并愛近人如愛自己一樣,耶穌用一個故事去表達愛的意義。經師、肋未人看到不幸被刧受傷的人都漠然地走過,沒有動憐憫心,而被猶太人輕視的撒瑪黎雅人卻向他伸出援手。

 

讀經二(哥一:15-20)說「耶穌是不可見的天主的肖像,是萬物的首生者……是教會的頭。因祂在十字架上所流的血建立了和平」。但祂卻願意以人的形體被人認識,受人愛。祂說:「誰對我最小兄弟中的一個所做的,就是對我做了。 」

 

今天耶穌也問我們:「你認為這三個人當中,誰是那被刧者的近人?」耶穌要我們認清誰是我們的近人,我們自己可以做誰的近人。祂也對我們說:「你去,也照樣做吧!」

 

From Fr. Gael:
The story of the Good Samaritan is a story of LOVE transcending the limitations of imposed boundaries. It widens the definition of whom we are called to care about in the context of our daily lives. A priest and a Levite, categories of people who should have had a greater capacity for concern and compassion, pass by the roadside victim. Obviously, the victim does not fall within the categories of their concern and compassion. It is only when the Samaritan, who also would not have fallen into the categories of concern and compassion of the priest and Levite, passes by that concern and compassion flow to the victim. What is Jesus saying here? It really is obvious. What are the categories of our concern and compassion? What are the limitations of our concern and compassion? If there is anything the world needs today, that our country needs today, in the style of the Gospel of Jesus, it is wider and more comprehensive categories of concern and compassion, of LOVE.

Choose Life! “We are facing an enormous and dramatic clash between good and evil, death and life, the ‘culture of death’ and the ‘culture of life’. We find ourselves not only ‘faced with’ but necessarily ‘in the midst of’ this conflict: we are all involved and we all share in it, with the inescapable responsibility of choosing to be unconditionally pro-life.” —Saint Pope John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae, 28.

Isaiah 66:10-14c; Galatians 6:14-18; Luke 10: 1-12, 17-20, or 10:1-9. The prophet Isaiah instructs us to rejoice because the Lord assures us he will extend prosperity and comfort. In Paul’s Letter to the Galatians, he writes that the cross of Jesus Christ has brought about a new creation, one which will bring peace and mercy to those who follow him. Luke’s Gospel tells of Christ appointing and sending seventy-two followers out in pairs – like lambs among wolves –with instructions on how to labor in the field and proclaim the kingdom of God.

La vera Gloria di Dio non può essere diffusa da nessuna propaganda e tantomeno da un sistema pubblicitario. L’affermazione della Parola di Dio passa attraverso la testimonianza della nostra vita fervida e gioiosa e della nostra franchezza nell’annunciare la Buona Novella.

常年期第十四主日

今天我們在讀經一中讀到依撒意亞先知所說的耶路撒冷豐盛寶藏,她的子民可以盡情吸取。教會是世上的耶路撒冷,也保有先知所說的寶藏,任由信友盡情吸取,那就是耶穌賜給心地良善的人的和平。我們身為教友要愛護教會,要和她休戚相關,和教會合作,把天國的和平傅到世界各地。

耶穌派七十二門徒去宣講天主之國時,交託給他們的使命,就是把和平、仁愛、溫良傳給普世萬民。這任務是艱辛的,「有如羔羊進入狼群」。因為世途險阻,尤其在今日;但耶穌是除免世罪的羔羊,祂「決心上耶路撒冷」,捨身死在十字架上救贖人類,所以我們不用害怕,萬事有祂作後盾,我們祇管依照着天主十誡和耶穌的言行,決心盡力做好我們教友應做的事,以身作則,使人看到我們的作為,光榮我們在天上的大父,這也就是讀經二中,聖保祿宗徒所說的誇耀主耶穌基督的十字架了

From Fr. Gael: There is a very interesting point in this piece of the Gospel where Jesus sends 72 disciples out to work in his name. From the very beginning of Christ’s ministry, it is not about “Lone Rangers.” It is about working in community. Granted that working in pairs is minimal community, but it is community. That should say something to us about how we realize ministry in parish life. It is not about “Lone Rangers,” but rather about community.

There are so many cases in the long history of the Church, where one charismatic personality starts projects which disappear when, in the course of time, the individual disappears. Yet the Church, and the great religious communities in the Church, enjoy a long history in the service of the church. Their charismatic gift and call are entrusted to charismatic persons who form communities around them to carry on the gift and call to service. It is much bigger than any one of us.

And so, within the context of our Church community of Saints Peter and Paul, it is never about “Lone Rangers” but about all of us, the entire community, answering the call and gift of service to all.

–Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB
