Sirach 27:30-28:7; Romans 14:7-9; Matthew 18: 21-35. Sirach tells the people. Wrath and anger are hateful things, yet the sinner hugs them tight. Thus, they are to forgive their neighbor as they wish to be forgiven by the Lord. Paul tells the Romans, None of us lives for oneself, and no one dies for oneself. For if we live, we live for the Lord. In the Gospel, Jesus answers Peter’s question of how often he must forgive by telling him the parable of the unforgiving servant.

Domenico 24A Del tempo Ordinario

Perdonare è la condizione indispensabile per essere perdonati. Ogni uomo ha bisogno di misericordia, perchè alla santità del Signore non è possible avvicinarsi da parte dell’uomo peccatore. La via per andare a Dio è la misericordia verso il fratello. Occorre fare tante buone opera per vivere in maniera nuova I rapporti sociali, esercitando la carità il perdono.

常年期第二十四日

今天的福音記載伯多祿和耶穌有關寛恕的對話,伯多祿自以為很大方,寛恕得罪自己的人七次,就像我們常常以為,寛恕了兩、三次已經夠了,若一而再地得罪我,就得給他一點顏色,一點苦頭,看他以後敢不敢?可是耶穌卻說要寛恕七十個七次,意思是無數次,也就是要常常寛恕,祂還以身作則,做給我們看,在十字架上寛恕了殺祂的人。又用比喻去解釋《德訓篇》中所說的:「你要寛恕你的近人,這樣,當你祈禱時,你的罪也會得到赦免。」

人心是狹窄的,我們非常需要別人同情憐憫,但卻不肯放過得罪自己的人,所以許多人會懷着報仇雪恨的心。以牙還牙,怨怨相報沒完沒了,世界變得越來越壞,那是很可悲可怕的。天主經中,耶穌教我們這樣祈求:「求祢寛免我們的罪債,如同我們寛恕得罪我們人。」這話意義重大。每日念天主經時要多多默想。

天主給我們許多赦罪的機會,在告解聖事、在彌撒聖祭中都可得罪之赦。一個真心痛悔的人,不管犯了多大的罪,犯了多少次,都會得到天主寛赦的。

From Fr. Gael: The Book of Sirach was written by a Jewish sage during the period of the Hellenization of Palestine, that is, when Greek philosophy was novel and popular in Palestine. Sirach wanted the Jewish people to appreciate the wealth of wisdom in their own heritage before dabbling in Greek thought. Perhaps in a very similar way we face the same challenge in the secular world in which we live. We can get so taken up with popular trends and thought that we forget the wealth of Christian thought which has come down to us through the centuries. In the writings of the early Fathers of the church, in the writings of many centuries of saints, and contemporary saints we can find treasures. The wisdom is there. It is up to us to look for it. In this day of modern technology, we have at our disposition on the internet the writings of all these Christian treasures. It is our patrimony. Why settle for trendy thought when we can access the deeper thought of saints down through the ages who have struggled as we do today. Give it a try.  –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

Speaking of Vocations: Could God be Calling Me? YES! God calls each of us to life, to wholeness, and to service. The task of the young adult is to discern what path God wants him or her to follow. The Lord calls most people to marriage and family. For the Christian young adult this is a very important decision. Choosing to marry is not just a romantic response, but also a very specific process that includes prayer, investigation, involvement, and experience.

God calls some people to religious life as a Sister, Brother, or Priest. A religious vocation follows the same process. We call this the discernment process. Want to learn more about the Salesian Vocation? Email Fr. John Roche, SDB at jrochesdb@gmail.com

Ezekiel 33:7-9; Romans 13:8-10; Matthew 18:15-20.  In the first reading, the Lord tells Ezekiel that he will be held responsible for the death of the wicked one if he does not speak out to dissuade [him] from his way. In the Letter to the Romans, paul writes that the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. In the Gospel, Jesus gives instructions for correcting one another, gives authority to bind and loose, and promises where two or three are gathered together in my midst, there am I in the midst of them.

Domenico 23A Del Tempo Ordinario

Il male compiuto danneggia la convivenza umana. Bisogna avviare il fratello verso il bene. La morale non deve diventare motivo di disprezzo, di odio, di delazione e di vendetta, ma invito alla correzione che salva. La fede in Gesù trasforma le realizioni sociali e la vita personale dei credenti.

常年期第二十三主日

今天的三段讀經都和愛有關:聖保祿寫道:「除了彼此相愛外,你們不可再欠人什麼。」(讀經二)這是一項重大的債務。人人都有責任去償還。這也是一種義務,因為彼此相愛原是人性重要的一環,也是天主的誡命。愛人不單不損害別人還要關顧別人的好處,如果別人行為不當,要幫助他離開邪道,把天主的教導傳給他。(讀經一)

福音更進一步,把勸告的責任推廣到每一個信徒身上,祇要看見弟兄們陷於罪惡,就有責任勸告。「如果你的兄弟犯了罪,要在你和他獨處的時候規勸他,如果他聽從你,你便賺得了你旳弟兄。」態度誠懇溫和,而且在私底下,不要把他犯錯的事傳到外面,以至損害他的名譽,這是不道德的行為。最後,耶穌說:「你們中若有兩個人在地上同心合意地祈求,無論求什麼,我的天父一定會為你實現。」因為同心合意是愛的象徵,天主是愛。而為弟兄們祈禱也是愛的表示。

From Fr. Gael: Ezekiel, a prophet of the exile, calls the people to turn back to God, to be faithful to the covenant. This sounds a bit like Jeremiah last week. The need to call the people of Israel seems to have been continuous and persistent. And in the Gospel Jesus deals with one of the common human situations of conflict as a way of showing faithfulness to God. It is dealing with one’s “brother.” Of course, here the word brother has a greater extension than merely one’s blood brother. It implies dealing with humanity. Jesus gives a three step process to seek reconciliation. Step one: talk personally alone with one’s brother. If that doesn’t work, then, Step two: take a third party along to be part of the process. And if that doesn’t work, then, seek intervention through the Church. Only then, if it doesn’t work can one step aside from one’s brother. The whole point here is that we have to constantly work at it. We cannot step aside without an effort to reconcile. It isn’t easy but in imitation of Christ, it is that to which we are called. –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

Jeremiah 20:7-9; Romans 12:1-2; Matthew 16:21-27. Jeremiah accuses the Lord of duping him, for his prophecies are met with laughter and mocking, derision and reproach. Paul encourages the Romans to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice. In the Gospel, Jesus reveals that he must suffer greatly, and Peter attempts to dissuade him. Jesus accuses Peter of thinking not as God does, but as human beings do. He then tells his disciples that in order to follow him, they must take up their cross.

Domenico 22A Del Tempo Ordinario

Il richiamo del Signore agli antichi profeti e agli apostolic ci impegna ad essere forti e resistenti al male diffuse e organizzato. Il bene trionfa agendo fino al sacrificio come I martire e fino all’eroismo come I santi, autentici modelli di comprtamento. La vita è segnata dalla croce da portare dietro a Gesù, sostenuti dal suo amore.

常年期第二十二主日

上主日,耶穌對聖伯多祿說:「西滿!約納的兒子,你是有福的!」今天卻說:「撒殫,退到我後面去!你是我的絆腳石!」前後二節形成強烈的對比。這是因為伯多祿反對主要受苦難,而耶穌卻認為這苦難是必需的,是祂降生為人的終極目的。基督徒若不接受耶穌被釘死在十字架的,就是不接受耶穌是天主。凡跟隨耶穌的,不單要接受祂的十字架,也要接受自己的十字架,因為耶穌說過:「誰若願意跟隨我,應該棄絕自己,背着自己的十字架跟隨我。」這是原祖父母犯罪後,使每一個得救的人,也使整個人類得救的唯一途徑。

耶穌基督不是被迫,而不得不背十字架走上加爾瓦略山的,祂是自願以愛去接受十字架,  為能作為祭品救贖人類。我們也這樣做,就是過基督過的生活。

聖保祿宗徒寫道:「我以天主的仁慈請求你們, 獻上你們的身體,當作生活、聖潔和悅樂天主的祭品」。怎樣獻上自己的身體?就是努力遵守天主的誡命,愛天主愛人地生活。

From Fr. Gael:  It was not easy for Jeremiah to be a prophet of doom. He accrued enemies who sought to do away with him. It is this desperation of Jeremiah which speaks in the first reading today. It goes much the same way with Jesus when he forecasts his passion and death in Jerusalem. Peter protests but Jesus has to rectify the situation. Peter says: “God forbid, Lord! No such thing shall ever happen to you.” He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are an obstacle to me. You are thinking not as God does, but as human beings do.” Jesus clarifies well that he will do the will of His Father, of God. And what about us? Where do we stand? Do we think that we should have easy Christianity. Are we ready like Jeremiah to be faithful no matter the cost? Are we like Jesus committed to the will of God? Comfortable Christianity is not Christianity. The Cross is Christianity. And so Jesus can say because he has walked the path, “Come follow me.” –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

Speaking of Vocations: Could God be Calling Me? YES! God calls each of us to life, to wholeness, and to service. The task of the young adult is to discern what path God wants him or her to follow. The Lord calls most people to marriage and family. For the Christian young adult this is a very important decision. Choosing to marry is not just a romantic response, but also a very specific process that includes prayer, investigation, involvement, and experience.

God calls some people to religious life as a Sister, Brother, or Priest. A religious vocation follows the same process. We call this the discernment process. Want to learn more about the Salesian Vocation? Email Fr. John Roche, SDB at jrochesdb@gmail.com
