聖斐理伯.內利 (司鐸) (紀念)

恭讀聖若望福音 21:20-25

那時,伯多祿轉過身來,看見耶穌所愛的那個門徒跟著,即是在晚餐時靠耶穌胸膛前問「主!是誰出賣你?」的那個門徒。伯多祿一看見他,就對耶穌說:「主!他怎樣?」耶穌向他說:「我如果要他存留直到我來,與你何干?你只管跟隨我。」於是這話傳在兄弟之間,說那個門徒不會死的。可是耶穌並沒有說:「他不死」;而說:「我若要他留著,直到我來,和你有什麼關繫?」
為這些事作證,並且記了這些事的,就是這個門徒。我們知道他的作證是真實的。但耶穌還行了別的許多事跡,若要一一寫出,那末要寫的書,我想世界也容納不下。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 21:20-25

20 Peter turned and saw following them the disciple whom Jesus loved, who had lain close to his breast at the supper and had said, “Lord, who is it that is going to betray you?” 21 When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, “Lord, what about this man?” 22 Jesus said to him, “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you? Follow me!” 23 The saying spread abroad among the brethren that this disciple was not to die; yet Jesus did not say to him that he was not to die, but, “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you?” 24 This is the disciple who is bearing witness to these things, and who has written these things; and we know that his testimony is true. 25 But there are also many other things which Jesus did; were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written.

若21:20-25    (讀經 ── 宗28:16-20, 30-31   詠11)
伯多祿轉過身來,看見耶穌所愛的那個門徒跟著,即是在晚餐時靠耶穌胸膛前問「主!是誰出賣你?」的那個門徒。伯多祿一看見他,就對耶穌說:「主!他怎樣?」耶穌向他說:「我如果要他存留直到我來,與你何干?你只管跟隨我。」於是這話傳在兄弟之間,說那個門徒不會死的。可是耶穌並沒有說:「他不死」;而說:「我若要他留著,直到我來,與你何干?」
為這些事作證,並且記了這些事的,就是這個門徒。我們知道他的作證是真實的。但耶穌還行了別的許多事跡,若要一一寫出,那末要寫的書,我想世界也容納不下。

默 想

  • 主耶穌與祂的每一位門徒,都有屬於他們的故事。昨天,我們讀了耶穌和伯多祿的故事,今天,我們見到愛比較的伯多祿,想知道若望(相信是耶穌所愛的那個門徒)和主之間的故事。
  • 但耶穌較正伯多祿的心,提醒他只管跟隨主吧,那門徒自有他的路。
  • 我們是否有時也與伯多祿十分相似?總是持著「隔鄰飯香」的心態,只看到上主如何如何鍾愛別人,彷彿恩寵只有在他人身上展現,卻不細看、細數上主也給自己足夠的恩寵。
  • 愛比較有時因為不能自我肯定,亦意味難以相信上主對自己的愛和接納。唯有從心底落實那份上主的恩待,接收也接受祂的寵幸,我們才能夠在祂的懷抱中得著平靜與安穩。
  • 記得教父聖奧斯定的名句:「我們內心紊亂不安,直至在祢的懷中得享安息。」
