若10:22-30    (讀經 ── 宗11:19-26   詠87)
在耶路撒冷舉行重建節,正是冬天。耶穌徘徊於聖殿內撒羅滿遊廊下。猶太人圍起他來,向他說:「你使我們的心神懸疑不定,要到幾時呢?你如果是默西亞,就坦白告訴我們罷!」耶穌答覆說:「我已經告訴了你們,你們卻不相信;我以我父的名所作的工作,為我作證,但你們還是不信,因為你們不是屬於我的羊。我的羊聽我的聲音,我也認識他們,他們也跟隨我;我賜與他們永生,他們永遠不會喪亡;誰也不能從我手中把他們奪去。那賜給我羊群的父,超越一切,為此,誰也不能從我父手裡將他們奪去。我與父原是一體。」

默 想

  • 猶太人緊張外表的名稱——要確定誰是默西亞。但耶穌卻不斷向他們說出內在世界的秘密——要回歸創造的根源。
  • 我們若不能超越宗教的外在皮相,便不能進入內心,進入耶穌要帶我們進入的世界。
  • 皮相就是規條、守則、誡律,達到這些,便達到最低要求。但耶穌卻帶我們往最高的標準奔去。要求我們全心、全靈、全意、全力。
  • 只有這樣,才能認出耶穌的聲音。

神父講道 – 復活期第四週 (週一) (2012年4月30日)

恭讀聖若望福音 10:1-10

耶穌向猶太人說:「我實實在在告訴你們:凡不由門進入羊棧,而由別處爬進去的,便是賊,是強盜。由門進去的,才是羊的牧人。看門的給他開門,羊聽他的聲音;他按著名字呼喚自己的羊,並引領出來。當他把羊放出來以後,就走在羊前面,羊也跟隨他,因為認得他的聲音。羊決不跟隨陌生人,反而逃避他,因為羊不認得陌生人的聲音。」耶穌給他們講了這個譬喻,他們卻不明白他們所講的是什麼。
於是耶穌又對他們說:「我實實在在告訴你們:我是羊的門;凡在我以先來的,都是賊和強盜,羊沒有聽從他們。我就是門,誰若經過我進來,必得安全;可以進,可以出,可以找著草場。賊來,無非是為偷竊、殺害、毀滅;我來,卻是為叫他們獲得生命,且獲得更豐富的生命。」

(4th Week of Easter – Monday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 10:1-10

1″Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door but climbs in by another way, that man is a thief and a robber; 2 but he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 To him the gatekeeper opens; the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. 5 A stranger they will not follow, but they will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.” 6 This figure Jesus used with them, but they did not understand what he was saying to them. 7 So Jesus again said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All who came before me are thieves and robbers; but the sheep did not heed them. 9 I am the door; if any one enters by me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

若10:1-10    (讀經 ── 宗11:1-18   詠42, 43)
耶穌向猶太人說:「我實實在在告訴你們:凡不由門進入羊棧,而由別處爬進去的,便是賊,是強盜。由門進去的,才是羊的牧人。看門的給他開門,羊聽他的聲音;他按著名字呼喚自己的羊,並引領出來。當他把羊放出來以後,就走在羊前面,羊也跟隨他,因為認得他的聲音。羊決不跟隨陌生人,反而逃避他,因為羊不認得陌生人的聲音。」耶穌給他們講了這個譬喻,他們卻不明白他們所講的是什麼。
於是耶穌又對他們說:「我實實在在告訴你們:我是羊的門;凡在我以先來的,都是賊和強盜,羊沒有聽從他們。我就是門,誰若經過我進來,必得安全;可以進,可以出,可以找著草場。賊來,無非是為偷竊、殺害、毀滅;我來,卻是為叫他們獲得生命,且獲得更豐富的生命。」

默 想

  • 瑪竇福音25章34節中耶穌說,審判的時候,會恩待那些對最小的兄弟中給予食物、衣服、探望在囚者的人,對沒有這樣做的人,耶穌說,「這些人要進入永罰,而那些義人卻要進入永生。」
  • 究竟今天的若望福音正確,還是瑪竇福音正確呢?以教會今天的立場,較為傾向瑪竇。
  • 但若望又怎樣解釋呢?若望成書是大概公元100年,作者的反省比較深入。很多學者認為若望神學是指向神修的深處。
  • 神修的深處是什麼?就是發現人只有回歸宇宙最深的根源——造物者,或是存有,人才能得到真理。無論是基督宗教、猶太教、回教、佛教、孔孟老莊,都是在表達同樣的路——回歸真理,反璞歸真,重返根源。
  • 若這是解得通的話,若望就通過耶穌的口去表達出唯有返回創造的根源,才是進入永生的唯一道路。

主日講道 – 復活期第四主日 – 聖召主日 (2012年4月29日)

恭讀聖若望福音 10:11-18

那時候,耶穌說:「我是善牧:善牧為羊捨掉自己的性命。傭工,因為不是牧人,羊也不是他自己的,一看見狼來,便棄羊逃跑;狼就抓住羊,把羊趕散了;因為他是傭工,對羊漠不關心。「我是善牧,我認識我的羊,我的羊也認識我,正如父認識我,我也認識父一樣;我並且為羊捨掉我的性命。我還有其他羊,還不屬於這一棧,我也該把他們領來,他們要聽我的聲音;這樣,將只有一個羊群,一個牧人。「父愛我,因為我捨掉我的性命,為再取回它。誰也不能奪去我的性命,而是我甘心情願捨掉它。我有權捨掉它,我也有權再取回它:這是我由我父所接受的命令。」

—基督的福音。

(4th Sunday of Easter)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 10:11-18

11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12 He who is a hireling and not a shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. 13 He flees because he is a hireling and cares nothing for the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me, 15 as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 And I have other sheep, that are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will heed my voice. So there shall be one flock, one shepherd. 17 For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life, that I may take it again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again; this charge I have received from my Father.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

神父講道 – 復活期第三週 (週六) (2012年4月28日)

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。」

(3rd Week of Easter – Saturday)

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.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.
