神父講道 – 聖母進教之佑 (週四) (2012年5月24日)

恭讀聖若望福音 2:1-11

第三天,在加里肋亞加納有婚宴,耶穌的母親也在那裡;耶穌和他的門徒也被請去赴婚宴。酒不夠了,耶穌的母親向他說:「他們沒有酒了。」耶穌回答說:「女人,這於我和你有什麼關係?我的時刻尚未來到。」他的母親給僕役說:「他無論吩咐你們什麼,你們就做什麼。」在那裡放著六口石缸,是為猶太人取潔禮用的;每口可容納兩三桶水。耶穌向僕役說:「你們把缸灌滿水罷!」他們就灌滿了,直到缸口。然後,耶穌給他們說:「現在你們舀出來,送給司席!」他們便送去了。司席一嘗已變成酒的水——他並不知道是從那裡來的,舀水的僕役卻知道──司席便叫了新郎來,向他說:「人人都先擺上好酒,當客人都喝夠了,纔擺上次等的;你卻把好酒保留到現在。」
這是耶穌所行的第一個神蹟,是在加里肋亞加納行的;他顯示了自己的光榮,他的門徒就信從了他。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 2:1-12

1 On the third day there was a marriage at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there; 2 Jesus also was invited to the marriage, with his disciples. 3 When the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” 4 And Jesus said to her, “O woman, what have you to do with me? My hour has not yet come.” 5 His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” 6 Now six stone jars were standing there, for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. 7 Jesus said to them, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. 8 He said to them, “Now draw some out, and take it to the steward of the feast.” So they took it. 9 When the steward of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the steward of the feast called the bridegroom 10 and said to him, “Every man serves the good wine first; and when men have drunk freely, then the poor wine; but you have kept the good wine until now.” 11 This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory; and his disciples believed in him.

若17:20-26    (讀經 ── 宗22:30;23:6-11   詠16)
耶穌舉目向天祈禱說:「我不但為他們祈求,而且也為那些因他們的話而信從我的人祈求。願眾人都合而為一。父啊!願他們在我們內合而為一,就如你在我內,我在你內,為叫世界相信是你派遣了我。我將你賜給我的光榮賜給了他們,為叫他們合而為一,就如我們原為一體一樣。我在他們內,你在我內,使他們完全合而為一,為叫世界知道是你派遣了我,並且你愛了他們,如愛了我一樣。父啊!你所賜給我的人,我願我在那裡,他們也同我在一起,使他們享見你所賜給我的光榮,因為你在創世之前,就愛了我。公義的父啊!世界沒有認識你,我卻認識了你,這些人也知道是你派遣了我。我已經將你的名宣示給他們了,我還要宣示,好使你愛我的愛在他們內,我也在他們內。」

默 想

  • 耶穌的祈禱中,盡顯祂的願望與心聲,祂清楚知道,世界要變得美好,更美好,人與人必須合而為一,有共融精神。否則,分裂只會出現進一步的分裂。情況就如某人與某人相處,若心病的苗芽一旦出現,容易生根成長,製造更難癒合的分裂,當中,很可能只是微不足
    道的誤會罷了。偏見是人際之中的毒藥!
  • 共融、合一,不表示劃一,破壞各人的獨特性。共融內所包含的美麗元素,正幫助大家發揮、助長各人的獨特性,更直接的說,是各人內裡早已存在的真、善、美,最接近天主肖像的本質。
  • 不過,痛苦的經驗告訴我們,分裂比共融、合一容易,埋怨、指責、落井下石彷彿比寬恕、體諒、支持來得更「合情合理」,因為更易做到,捨難取易,人性、成長、關係……被弄得更支離破碎。
  • 大家的痛苦也日深!
  • 因為完整性、共融感變得久違了!這絕非基督的切願。
