神父講道 – 復活期第三週 (週六) (2010年4月24日)

聖斐德(斐德理)司鐸殉道
恭讀聖若望福 6:60-69
耶穌的門徒中有許多人聽了他的話,便說:「這話生硬,誰能聽得下去呢?」耶穌自知他的門徒對這話竊竊私議,便向他們說:「這話使你們起反感嗎?那麼,如果你們看到人子升到他先前所在的地方去,將怎樣呢?使生活的是神,肉一無所用;我給你們所講論的話,就是神,就是生命。但你們中間有些人,卻不相信。」原來,耶穌從起頭就知道那些人不信,和誰要出賣他。所以他又說:「為此,我對你們說過:除非蒙父恩賜的,誰也不能到我這裏來。」
從此,他的門徒中有許多人退去了,不再同他往來。於是耶穌向那十二人說:「難道你們也願走嗎?」西滿伯多祿回答說:「主!惟你有永生的話。我們去投奔誰呢?我們相信,而且已知道你是天主的聖者。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 6:60-69

60 Many of his disciples, when they heard it, said, “This is a hard saying; who can listen to it?” 61 But Jesus, knowing in himself that his disciples murmured at it, said to them, “Do you take offense at this? 62 Then what if you were to see the Son of man ascending where he was before? 63 It is the spirit that gives life, the flesh is of no avail; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life. 64 But there are some of you that do not believe.” For Jesus knew from the first who those were that did not believe, and who it was that would betray him. 65 And he said, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by the Father.” 66 After this many of his disciples drew back and no longer went about with him. 67 Jesus said to the twelve, “Do you also wish to go away?” 68 Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life; 69 and we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God.” because of me.

若6:60-69 (其他經文──宗9:31-42    詠116)
耶穌的門徒中有許多人聽了他的話,便說:「這話生硬,誰能聽得下去呢?」耶穌自知他的門徒對這話竊竊私議,便向他們說:「這話使你們起反感嗎?那麼,如果你們看到人子升到他先前所在的地方去,將怎樣呢?使生活的是神,肉一無所用;我給你們所講論的話,就是神,就是生命。但你們中間有些人,卻不相信。」原來,耶穌從起頭就知道那些人不信,和誰要出賣他。所以他又說:「為此,我對你們說過:除非蒙父恩賜的,誰也不能到我這裡來。」從此,他的門徒中有許多人退去了,不再同他往來。於是耶穌向那十二人說:「難道你們也願走嗎?」西滿伯多祿回答說:「主!惟你有永生的話。我們去投奔誰呢?我們相信,而且已知道你是天主的聖者。」

默 想

  • 這話生硬!
  • 是不是因為這個原因,我們便只用口領聖體,而不用心領呢?用心領聖體,原來是要準備得很好的。要有改變自己的準備!
  • 我們很多時不願改變,不願犧牲,所以便不作準備,聖事便無效了。結果我們也不用改變,不用犧牲。
  • 我們願意為耶穌做到哪一個地步呢?年青人們,若真的召叫你,你是否回應聖召呢?

司鐸年每日默想 (4月24日)

重新評估社會之愛

為使社會更人性化,更具人性尊嚴,需要重新評價社會生活之愛——在政治、經濟、文化層面——,使之成為其行動的崇高而不變的準則。

如果正義本身能夠以公平的方式裁定人類在相互分配之中客觀的利益,那麼,愛,唯有愛有能力使人尋獲自我。不能單一地以正義的標準劃定人際關係:基督徒知道天主進入人類的關係中是由於愛,他等待人類的答復也就是愛。

因此,愛是人類相互關係的最崇高與最尊貴的形式。愛應該推動人類生活的每個因素,也延伸到國際秩序。人類唯有讓“愛的文化”做主,才能夠享受真正而持久的和平。
