主日講道 – 復活期第二主日 (救主慈悲主日) (2011年5月1日)

聖若瑟勞工
恭讀聖若望福音 20:19-31
一周的第一天晚上,門徒所在的地方,因為怕猶太人,門戶都關著,耶穌來了,站在中間,對他們說:「願你們平安!」 說了這話,便把手和肋膀指給他們看。門徒見了主,便喜歡起來。耶穌又對他們說:「願你們平安!就如父派遣了我,我也同樣派遣你們。」說了這話,就向他們噓了一口氣,說:「你們領受聖神罷!你們赦免誰的罪,誰的罪就得赦免;你們保留誰的罪,誰的罪就被保留。」十二人中的一個,號稱狄狄摩的多默,當耶穌來時,卻沒有和他們在一起。其他門徒向他說:「我們看見了主。」但多默對他們說:「除非我看見祂手上的釘孔,用我的指頭,探入釘孔;用我的手,探入祂的肋膀,我決不信。」八天以後,耶穌的門徒又在屋裡,多默也和他們在一起。門戶關著,耶穌來了,站在中間,說:「願你們平安!」 然後對多默說:「把你的指頭伸到這裡來,看看我的手罷!並伸過你的手來,探入我的肋膀,不要做無信德的人,但要做個有信德的人。」多默回答說:「我主!我天主!」耶穌對他說:「因為你看見了我,纔相信嗎?那些沒有看見而相信的,纔是有福的!」耶穌在門徒前,還行了許多其他神蹟,沒有記在這部書上。這些所記錄的,是為叫你們信耶穌是默西亞,天主子,並使你們信的人,賴祂的名,獲得生命。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 20:19-31

19 On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 20 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. 21 Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.” 22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.” 24 Now Thomas, one of the twelve, called the Twin, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see in his hands the print of the nails, and place my finger in the mark of the nails, and place my hand in his side, I will not believe.” 26 Eight days later, his disciples were again in the house, and Thomas was with them. The doors were shut, but Jesus came and stood among them, and said, “Peace be with you.” 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side; do not be faithless, but believing.” 28 Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!” 29 Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.” 30 Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in his name.

主日福音  若20:19-31

一周的第一天晚上,門徒所在的地方,因為怕猶太人,門戶都關著;耶穌來了,站在中間,對他們說:「願你們平安!」說了這話,便把手和肋膀指給他們看。門徒見了主,便喜歡起來。
耶穌又對他們說:「願你們平安!就如父派遣了我,我也同樣派遣你們。」 說了這話,就向他們噓了一口氣,說:「你們領受聖神吧!你們赦免誰的罪,誰的罪就得赦免;你們保留誰的罪,誰的罪就被保留。」
十二人中的一個,號稱狄狄摩的多默,當耶穌來時,卻沒有和他們在一起。其他門徒向他說:「我們看見了主。」
但多默對他們說:「除非我看見他手上的釘孔,用我的指頭,探入釘孔;用我的手,探入他的肋膀,我決不信。」
八天以後,耶穌的門徒又在屋裡,多默也和他們在一起。門戶關著,耶穌來了,站在中間,說:「願你們平安!」然後對多默說:「把你的指頭伸到這裡來,看看我的手吧!並伸過你的手來,探入我的肋膀,不要做無信德的人,但要做個有信德的人。」
多默回答說:「我主!我天主!」
耶穌對多默說:「因為你看見了我,才相信嗎?那些沒有看見而相信的,才是有福的!」
耶穌在門徒前,還行了許多其他神蹟,沒有記在這部書上。這些所記錄的,是為叫你們信耶穌是默西亞,天主子,並使你們信的人,賴他的名,獲得生命。

默 想

  • 見到才信,是知道,不是相信。
  • 我們不要譏笑多默,現代人之中,有很多的多默。多默,象徵依靠自己的理性去推斷,唯有相信眼目見到的東西,見到的才覺得靠得住。
  • 安全感也建基於見得到的東西,沒有為意到,那只是虛幻性的安全感。
  • 多默式的信仰,是一種不再單純的信仰,需要學習放手的信仰,是要向超性信仰邁進的信仰。
  • 天主的存在是不能證明的。耶穌基督的復活是證明不到的,是一種空墳式的信仰本質。我們唯有靠著縱身一躍的信心一跳,才真正接受到這份得來不易的信仰。
