神父講道 – 聖週星期三 (2011年4月20日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 26:14-25
那時,那十二人中之一,名叫猶達斯依斯加略的,去見司祭長,說:「我把耶穌交給你們,你們願意給我什麼?」他們約定給他三十塊銀錢。從此便尋找機會,要把耶穌交出。
無酵節的第一天,門徒前來對耶穌說:「你願意我們在那裏,給你預備吃逾越節晚餐?」耶穌說:「你們進城去見某人,對他說:師傅說:我的時候近了,我要與我的門徒在你那裏舉行逾越節。」門徒就照耶穌吩咐他們的作了,預備了逾越節晚餐。
到了晚上,耶穌與十二門徒坐席。他們正吃晚餐的時候,耶穌說:「我實在告訴你們:你們中有一個人要出賣我。」他們非常憂悶,開始各自對他說:「主,難道是我嗎?」耶穌回答說:「那同我一起把手蘸在盤子裏的人,要出賣我。人子固然要按照指著他所記載的而去,但是出賣人子的那人卻是有禍的!那人若沒有生,為他更好。」那要出賣他的猶達斯也開口問耶穌說:「辣彼!難道是我嗎?」耶穌對他說:「你說的是。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 26:14-25

14 Then one of the twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests 15 and said, “What will you give me if I deliver him to you?” And they paid him thirty pieces of silver. 16 And from that moment he sought an opportunity to betray him. 17 Now on the first day of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Where will you have us prepare for you to eat the Passover?” 18 He said, “Go into the city to a certain one, and say to him, `The Teacher says, My time is at hand; I will keep the Passover at your house with my disciples.'” 19 And the disciples did as Jesus had directed them, and they prepared the Passover. 20 When it was evening, he sat at table with the twelve disciples; 21 and as they were eating, he said, “Truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me.” 22 And they were very sorrowful, and began to say to him one after another, “Is it I, Lord?” 23 He answered, “He who has dipped his hand in the dish with me, will betray me. 24 The Son of man goes as it is written of him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man if he had not been born.” 25 Judas, who betrayed him, said, “Is it I, Master?” He said to him, “You have said so.”

瑪26:14-25  (其他經文──依50:4-9   詠69)
隨後,那十二人中之一,名叫猶達斯依斯加略的,去見司祭長,說:「我把他交給你們,你們願意給我什麼?」他們約定給他三十塊銀錢。從此他便尋找機會,要把耶穌交出。無酵節的第一天,門徒前來對耶穌說:「你願意我們在那裡,給你預備吃逾越節晚餐?」耶穌說:「你們進城去見某人,對他說:師傅說:我的時候近了,我要與我的門徒在你那裡舉行逾越節。」門徒就照耶穌吩咐他們的作了,預備了逾越節晚餐。到了晚上,耶穌與十二門徒坐席。他們正吃晚餐的時候,耶穌說:我實在告訴你們:你們中有一個人要出賣我。」他們非常憂悶,開始各自對衪說:「主,難道是我嗎?」耶穌回答說:「那同我一起把手蘸在盤子裡的人要出賣我。人子固然要按照指著他所記載的而去,但是出賣人子的那人卻是有禍的,那人若是沒有生,為他更好。 」那要出賣衪的猶達斯也開口問耶穌說:「辣彼,難道是我嗎?」耶穌對他說:「你說的是。」

默 想

  • 每個門徒都問耶穌,「主,難道是我嗎?」再一次引起我的反省,難道聖若望這樣問,若耶穌答:「你說的是。」聖若望便會賣耶穌嗎?當然不會。
  • 這明顯是猶達斯已立心做這件事,而耶穌早已觀察出來了。他們跟了耶穌三年,他們的心思意念,耶穌又怎會不知?
  • 同樣地,我們的心思意念,天主也明白,若我們決心讓步給撒殫,天主當然也知道,但也束手無策,因為這是我們自己的決定,不是天主強加在我們身上。
