神父講道 – 聖達尼老 (主教、殉道) (週四) (2013年4月11日)

恭讀聖若望福音 3:31-36

那由上而來的,超越一切。那出於下地的,是屬於下地,且講論下地的事;那自上天而來的,超越萬有之上,他對所見所聞的,予以作證,卻沒有人接受他的見證。那接受他見證的人,就是證實天主是真實的。天主所派遣的,講論天主的話,因為天主把聖神無限量地賞賜了他。父愛子,並把一切交在他手中。那信從子的,便有永生;那不信從子的,不但不會見到生命,反有天主的義怒常在他身上。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 3:31-36

31 He who comes from above is above all; he who is of the earth belongs to the earth, and of the earth he speaks; he who comes from heaven is above all. 32 He bears witness to what he has seen and heard, yet no one receives his testimony; 33 he who receives his testimony sets his seal to this, that God is true. 34 For he whom God has sent utters the words of God, for it is not by measure that he gives the Spirit; 35 the Father loves the Son, and has given all things into his hand. 36 He who believes in the Son has eternal life; he who does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God rests upon him.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

若3:31-36   (讀經 ── 宗5:27-33   詠34)
「那由上而來的,超越一切。那出於下地的,是屬於下地,且講論下地的事;那自上天而來的,超越萬有之上,他對所見所聞的,予以作證,卻沒有人接受他的見證。那接受他見證的人,就是證實天主是真實的。天主所派遣的,講論天主的話,因為天主把聖神無限量地賞賜了他。父愛子,並把一切交在他手中。那信從子的,便有永生;那不信從子的,不但不會見到生命,反有天主的義怒常在他身上。」

默 想

  • 信從子是什麼意思?
  • 承認他、為他作見證、依靠他、相信他及那派他來的那一位。
  • 相反,很可能包括人的心硬,即使有天面對天主,也斷然否定天主,背棄天主。若是這樣,天主也沒有辦法,祂愛人,愛裡充滿自由,祂不會強迫人接納祂。
  • 我們都面對抉擇,是走向上主,還是遠離祂;不錯,人差不多不時都面對這類抉擇。
