神父講道 – 主顯節後 (週三) (2011年1月5日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 6:45-52
耶穌使五千人吃飽以後,便催迫門徒們上船,先到對岸貝特賽達去。這期間他遣散了群眾。耶穌辭別了眾人之後,便往山上祈禱去了。到了夜晚,船已在海中,耶穌獨自在陸地上。他看見門徒艱苦地在搖櫓。他們正遇著逆風。約夜間四更時分,耶穌步行海面,朝著他們走來,有意越過他們去。門徒看見他步行海上,以為是個妖怪,就都驚叫起來,因為眾人都看見到他,遂驚慌不已。耶穌連忙與他們講話,向他們說:「放心!是我,不要怕!」遂到他們那裏上船,風就停了。他們心中越發驚奇,因為他們還不明白關於增餅的事,他們的心還是遲鈍。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 6:45-52

45 Immediately he made his disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, to Beth-sa’ida, while he dismissed the crowd. 46 And after he had taken leave of them, he went up on the mountain to pray. 47 And when evening came, the boat was out on the sea, and he was alone on the land. 48 And he saw that they were making headway painfully, for the wind was against them. And about the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. He meant to pass by them, 49 but when they saw him walking on the sea they thought it was a ghost, and cried out; 50 for they all saw him, and were terrified. But immediately he spoke to them and said, “Take heart, it is I; have no fear.” 51 And he got into the boat with them and the wind ceased. And they were utterly astounded, 52 for they did not understand about the loaves, but their hearts were hardened.

谷6:45-52   (其他經文──若一4:11-18   詠72)
耶穌使五千人吃飽以後,便催迫門徒們上船,先到對岸貝特賽達去。這期間他遣散了群眾。耶穌辭別了眾人之後,便往山上祈禱去了。到了夜晚,船已在海中,耶穌獨自在陸地上。他看見門徒艱苦地在搖櫓。他們正遇著逆風。約夜間四更時分,耶穌步行海面,朝著他們走來,有意越過他們去。門徒看見他步行海上,以為是個妖怪,就都驚叫起來,因為眾人都看見到他,遂驚慌不已。耶穌連忙與他們講話,向他們說:「放心!是我,不要怕!」遂到他們那裡上船,風就停了。他們心中越發驚奇,因為他們還不明白關於增餅的事,他們的心還是遲鈍。

默 想

  • 門徒的驚奇、不明白,是一個他們好好認識師傅的機會,他們眼前的、朝夕共處的耶穌,究竟是誰?他似乎可「變」出更多食物、步行海面,還有更多更多他們想不到的神蹟,他們繼續在思量,師傅究竟是誰?
  • 對你而言,耶穌是誰?是你個人的天主子嗎?是你跟隨的救主嗎?是你願意將自己交付給祂的天主子嗎?是你真正信賴的基督嗎?
  • 門徒尚有很多不明白,他們的心還是遲鈍。但,心不怕遲鈍,最重要尚存追求、尋找的心。不明白的,竭而不捨地,繼續追尋下去,繼續思想下去,繼續將心眼定於基督內,總有一天,上主會讓我們明白、領悟。
