讀經一    依50:5-9  詠114
讀經二    雅2:14-18
主日福音  谷8:27-35
耶穌和他的門徒起身,前往斐理伯的凱撒勒雅附近的村莊。在路上,耶穌問自己的門徒說:「人們說我是誰?」他們回答說:「是洗者若翰;也有些人說,是厄里亞;還有些人說,是先知中的一位。」耶穌又問他們說:「你們說我是誰呢?」伯多祿回答說:「你是默西亞。」耶穌就嚴禁他們,不要向任何人談及他。耶穌於是開始教訓門徒:人子必須受許多苦,被長老、司祭長和經師棄絕,且要被殺害;但三天以後,必要復活。耶穌坦白地說了這番話。伯多祿便拉耶穌到一邊,開始諫責他。耶穌卻轉過身來,注視著自己的門徒,責斥伯多祿說:「撒旦,退到我後面去!因為你所體會的,不是天主的事,而是人的事。」
耶穌於是召集群眾和門徒,對他們說:「誰若願意跟隨我,該棄絕自己,背起自己的十字架,跟隨我,因為,誰若願意救自己的性命,必會喪失性命;但誰若為我和福音的原故,喪失自己的性命,必會救得性命。」

默 想

  • 我們跟隨耶穌,必有十架要背。誰若想「嘆世界」跟隨耶穌,對不起,沒有這個選擇!因為每人都有自己的十架,內容不同而已。
  • 據聞,陳茂波先生,是虔誠基督徒。可惜的是,他沒有背起十字架,所以,反而跌倒了。
  • 跌倒是不要緊的,反而是好的開始,可以重新思考信仰的意義,重新背起十架。
  • 做不做局長,是不要緊的,重要是重拾信仰在心中,不是掛在口邊,必有新的生命在心中再發芽。

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 8:27-35
那時候,耶穌和他的門徒起身,前往斐理伯的凱撒勒雅附近的村莊。在路上,耶穌問自己的門徒說:「人們說我是誰?」
他們回答說:「是洗者若翰;也有些人說,是厄里亞;還有些人說,是先知中的一位。」
耶穌又問他們說:「你們說我是誰呢?」
伯多祿回答說:「你是默西亞。」耶穌就嚴禁他們,不要向任何人談及他。
耶穌於是開始教訓門徒:人子必須受許多苦,被長老、司祭長和經師棄絕,且要被殺害;但三天以後,必要復活。
耶穌坦白地說了這番話。伯多祿便拉耶穌到一邊,開始諫責他。耶穌卻轉過身來,注視著自己的門徒,責斥伯多祿說:「撒旦,退到我後面去!因為你所體會的,不是天主的事,而是人的事。」
耶穌於是召集群眾和門徒,對他們說:「誰若願意跟隨我,該棄絕自己,背起自己的十字架,跟隨我,因為,誰若願意救自己的性命,必會喪失性命;但誰若為我和福音的原故,喪失自己的性命,必會救得性命。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 8:27-35

27 And Jesus went on with his disciples, to the villages of Caesare’a Philip’pi; and on the way he asked his disciples, “Who do men say that I am?” 28 And they told him, “John the Baptist; and others say, Eli’jah; and others one of the prophets.” 29 And he asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered him, “You are the Christ.” 30 And he charged them to tell no one about him. 31 And he began to teach them that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. 32 And he said this plainly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him. 33 But turning and seeing his disciples, he rebuked Peter, and said, “Get behind me, Satan! For you are not on the side of God, but of men.” 34 And he called to him the multitude with his disciples, and said to them, “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 35 For whoever would save his life will lose it; and whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it.

—The Gospel of the Lord.
