Malachi 3:19-20a; 2 Thessalonians 3:7-12; Luke 21:5-19. In the first reading, Malachi proclaims the coming judgment where the proud and evildoers will face destruction, while those who fear the Lord will be healed. In the second reading, Paul reminds believers to behave in an orderly way. In the Gospel, Jesus describes events that involve the persecution and suffering of believers, and warns them not to be taken in by false prophets or worldly signs.
Domenica 33A Del Tempo Ordinario
 
I profeti annunciano che si sarà la fine di questo mondo. Anche Gesù, come profeta si colloca alla fine della storia e mette davanti ai nostri occhi le difficoltà che non ci devono disarmare. Il bene alla fine trionferà e così “cieli nuovi e terra nuovi” sorgeranno.

常年期第三十三主日

上主日的福音中提到人死後復活,今天提到的仍是有關這方面的問題,以「上主的日子」 —— 世界末日為標題。耶穌說到那時有許多徵兆,但並不是末日立刻就到,不必驚慌,但我們可以明白這是天主仁慈地提醒我們,要時刻警醒。

耶穌又提到許多人會假冒祂的名,散佈邪說,令人迷惑,因此我們要認識教會的道理,要堅定信德,不要受騙。耶穌又預告:戰爭、叛亂、天災、飢荒將要出現,還有人身的迫害,這一切聽來可怕,其實未嘗不是天主給我們機會,要我們改善自己,幫助有需要的人。我們也許不致因信仰而受到肉身的迫害,但每天在日常生活中為基督作見證有時也會遭受困難,被人反對嘲笑,但我們不要怕,因為耶穌答應我們,祂會保護我們,保證我們不會失落,祇要我們堅忍到底。

From Fr. Gael: This is an apocalyptic reading for the coming end of the liturgical year. Actually, the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem had already taken place when this Gospel was written. So, when Luke puts in Jesus’ words about the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem, credibility is assumed. This is a time when the early followers of Jesus were trying to figure out where they fit in. They’re not welcome by the Jewish culture of Jerusalem. The Temple is gone. Who are they? They gradually work that out in the active following of Jesus Christ through the first Christian communities. In our secular world, you might say we are working out how we can give witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ. We would do well to ask the intercession of the first followers of Christ of that critical time to help us reaffirm our identity today as followers of Christ. The world needs us as much today as it needed them in their time. What bonds us together is the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus, yesterday, today and always. Amen. –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

We bring past events into the now.” Each of the three Liturgical Years uses one of the Synoptic Gospels: Matthew, Mark, & Luke. We will conclude Year C (Luke) next week, and, begin Year A (Matthew) on December 1, the First Sunday of Advent. Saints Luke and Matthew, pray for us!

2 Maccabees 7:1-2, 9-14; 2 Thessalonians 2:16-3:5; Luke 20:27-38 or 20:27, 34-38. Our first reading from Maccabees recalls the bravery of seven brothers and their mother who preferred death to denying their hope in the God of Israel. Saint Paul reminds the Thessalonians of God’s fidelity and encourages them to find hope and strength in the Lord. In the Gospel, the Sadducees attempt to put Jesus on the spot on the topic of resurrection.

Domenica 32A Del Tempo Ordinario

Sostenuti dalla speranza nella risurrezione, sette fratelli insieme con la loro madre affrontano una morte atroce. La fede nella vita futura si fonda sulla risurrezione di Gesù che apre orizzonti nuovi in cui la nostra vita e la nostra condizione saranno completamente diverse rispetto a quaggiù.

常年期第三十二主日

今天彌撒的讀經和復活的問題有關,在舊約時代,人們對這端真理好像有點不很清楚,不過在讀經一中那七兄弟因守教規而被一位外邦國王殺死時所說的話,可以見到他們對於復活和永生也有很堅定的信念。

今天的福音記述撒杜塞人否認人死後會復活,向耶穌提出古怪的問題,他們假設有一個婦人,先後和七兄弟結婚,在復活的時候誰是她的丈夫。耶穌針對這問題向他們解釋,人在復活之後,他的生活狀況和在世時不同,他們不嫁不娶,也不會死,他們將受洗時所接受成為天主義子的名份將完全發展,成為天主之子女。他們雖然得回自己在世的身體,但變得更美麗。因此,我們在生時,要提高自己的心神,盼望來世的幸福,努力行善,好使在復活之日得到永生,不致受罰。

十一月是煉靈月,教會提醒我們在這個月份裏,特別為在煉獄中的靈魂祈禱,好使他們能早日和天主、聖人、天神同在,安享永福。

From Fr. Gael: What I don’t understand is why the sixth and seventh brother didn’t get out of town and away from their deadly sister-in-law! Humor aside, the Sadducees who are taking their turn at swinging at Jesus come up with the specious example to test Jesus. They are all about legality. Jesus tells them so in his answer to them about marriage. Such norms will be superfluous in the next world in which the Sadducees don’t believe anyway. So, what is this all about, other than trying to discredit Jesus since the Pharisees failed to do so. It is amazing to see all the effort being expended rather than listening to what Jesus says. An open head and an open heart would stand them so much better than their hard heads and obdurate hearts. And while we look at them, we might check our own heads and hearts out to see where they are.  –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

“As human beings, we have a natural fear of death and we rebel against its apparent finality. Faith teaches us that the fear of death is lightened by a great hope, the hope of eternity, which gives our lives their fullest meaning. The God who is love offers us the promise of eternal life through the death and resurrection of His Son.” Therefore, “in Christ, death no longer appears as an abyss of emptiness, but rather a path to life which will never end.” –Pope Benedict XVI, All Souls Day, 2011.

Wisdom 11:22-12:2; 2 Thessalonians 1:11-2:2; Luke 19:1-10. In the Book of Wisdom, the author says that God loves all things because they are his, and he overlooks sin so that all may repent. In the second reading, Paul offers prayer and encouragement to the Thessalonians in their efforts to glorify the Lord. In Luke’s Gospel, Jesus empowers Zacchaeus to return to right relationship with him.
Domenica 31A Del Tempo Ordinario
 
Attraverso la bontà, la condiscendenza e il perdono Gesù invita Zacchèo a convertirsi. Lo stupore per la generosità di Gesù, induce Zacchèo a cambiare vita e fare l’esperrienza della gioosa accoglienza e della pace ritrovata, che vuole far conoscere a tutti, organizzando una festa, alla quale vengono invitati tutti i colleghi di lavoro.
常年期第三十一主日今天的福音記述耶穌和匝凱的相遇。匝凱是個孤獨寂寞的人,因為他有一份很不體面的工作,他為羅馬政府向猶太人收稅。他是個有錢人,他除了從羅馬政府得到工資外,還有許多其他來歷不明的收入。不用說,是向猶太人敲詐得來的,人人討厭他。

今天,他聽說耶穌會經過,想看看耶穌到底是怎樣的一個人,他並不想認識祂,祇是好奇吧了。因為身材矮小,祇好爬到樹上,居高臨下偷看。而耶穌竟走近時竟自己請自己到他家吃飯。匝凱被耶穌的聖善所震懾,受了感動,說出了連他自己也覺驚奇的話:「我要把我財產的一半施捨給窮人,我如果欺騙過誰,我就四倍賠償。」

在福音中,我們看到耶穌常常找機會和一些所謂「邊沿」的人相處,安慰、治癒他們。我們是不是也像匝凱一樣,需要耶穌來治癒我們的心靈?我們是不是願意像匝凱一樣,讓耶穌進入我的靈魂?

又或者,我們是不是也應該像耶穌一樣,找機會在一些「邊沿人」中,給他們安慰,向他們展示天主的愛?

From Fr. Gael: Zacchaeus is the little man with the big heart. It is not beneath his dignity, even though he is chief tax collector, to climb into a tree to be able to see Jesus since he, Zacchaeus is vertically challenged. Jesus sees the big heart hanging in the tree and invites himself to Zacchaeus’ house for dinner. Zacchaeus climbs down and moves to the center of the crowd to receive Jesus with joy. Of course, the perennial naysayers, immediately criticize Jesus for going to eat in the house of a “sinner.” But Zacchaeus is ready for redemption and is willing to restore anything he has unjustly taken. The sincerity of his heart is not limited by the size of his wealth. He has his priorities in the right place and Jesus guarantees him salvation for just that reason. Would we climb trees? Would restitution come as easily to us? Zacchaeus may be vertically challenged height wise, but he can see 20/20, and what he sees is salvation! –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

Choose Life! “In a striking way, we see today a heightening of the tension between our nation’s founding principles and political reality. We see this in diminishing respect for the inalienable right to life and in the elimination of legal protections for those who are most vulnerable.
