信仰生活互動坊、塔冷通心靈書舍

讀經一    列上19:4-8  詠34
讀經二    弗4:30-5:2
主日福音  若6:41-51
耶穌說:「我是從天上降下來的食糧。」
猶太人便對耶穌竊竊私議,說:「這人不是若瑟的兒子耶穌嗎?他的父親和母親,不是我們都認識嗎?怎麼他竟然說:我是從天上降下來的呢?」
耶穌回答說:「你們不要彼此竊竊私議!凡不是派遣我的父所吸引的人,誰也不能到我這裡來;到我這裡來的,我在末日要叫他復活。先知書上記載:『眾人都要蒙受天主的訓誨。』凡接受父的教導而學習的,必到我這裡來。這不是說有人看見過父,只有那從天主來的,才看見過父。我實實在在告訴你們:信從的人,必得永生。
「我是生命的食糧。你們的祖先在曠野,吃過『瑪納』,卻死了。這是從天上降下來的食糧,誰吃了,就不死。
「我是從天上降下的、生活的食糧;誰若吃了這食糧,必要生活,直到永遠。我所要賜給的食糧,就是我的肉,為使世界獲得生命。」

默 想

  • 「誰若吃了這食糧,必要生活,直到永遠。」這是真實的!
  • 我們若在聖體內和基督有真實的連結,我們現在已是永生了,因為基督是永生的,而我們又分享了祂的永生!
  • 若我們真的分享了基督真實的生命,我們是有不死之身的。塵世旅程之完結,只不過是進入生命的另一階段。
  • 所以,我們是有「不死身」的,就像聖母一樣!

恭讀聖若望福音 6:41-51

那時候,耶穌說:「我是從天上降下來的食糧。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 6:41-51

41 The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, “I am the bread which came down from heaven.” 42 They said, “Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How does he now say, `I have come down from heaven’?” 43 Jesus answered them, “Do not murmur among yourselves. 44 No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. 45 It is written in the prophets, `And they shall all be taught by God.’ Every one who has heard and learned from the Father comes to me. 46 Not that any one has seen the Father except him who is from God; he has seen the Father. 47 Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes has eternal life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49 Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. 50 This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that a man may eat of it and not die. 51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh.”

聖嘉勒 (貞女) (紀念)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 17:14-20

那時候,有一個人來到耶穌跟前,跪下,說:「主啊!可憐我的兒子吧!他患癲癇病很苦,屢次跌在火中,又屢次跌在水裏。我把他帶到你的門徒跟前,他們卻不能治好他。」耶穌回答說:「哎!無信敗壞的世代,我同你們在一起要到幾時呢?我容忍你們要到幾時呢?把他給我帶到我這裏來!」耶穌遂叱責魔鬼,魔鬼就從孩子身上出去了;從那時刻,孩子就好了。
以後,門徒前來私下對耶穌說:「為什麼我們不能逐出這魔鬼呢?」耶穌對他們說:「由於你們缺少信德;我實在告訴你們:假如你們有像芥子那麼大的信德,你們向這座山說:從這邊移到那邊去!它必會移過去的;為你們沒有不可能的事。」

(Memorial of Saint Clare, virgin)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 17:14-20

14 And when they came to the crowd, a man came up to him and kneeling before him said, 15 “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and he suffers terribly; for often he falls into the fire, and often into the water. 16 And I brought him to your disciples, and they could not heal him.” 17 And Jesus answered, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long am I to be with you? How long am I to bear with you? Bring him here to me.” 18 And Jesus rebuked him, and the demon came out of him, and the boy was cured instantly. 19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?” 20 He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, `Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.
