神父講道 – 復活期第二週 (週六) (2013年4月13日)

恭讀聖若望福音 6:16-21

到了晚上,耶穌的門徒下到海邊,上船要到海對岸的葛法翁去。天已黑了,耶穌還沒有來到他們那裏。海上因起了大風,便翻騰起來。當他們搖櫓大約過了二十五或三十「斯塔狄」時,看見耶穌在海面上行走,臨近了船,便害怕起來。但他卻向他們說:「是我,不要害怕!」他們便欣然接他上船,船就立時到了他們所要去的地方。

—上主的話。

(2nd Week of Easter – Saturday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 6:16-21

16 When evening came, his disciples went down to the sea, 17 got into a boat, and started across the sea to Caper’na-um. It was now dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them. 18 The sea rose because a strong wind was blowing. 19 When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and drawing near to the boat. They were frightened, 20 but he said to them, “It is I; do not be afraid.” 21 Then they were glad to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land to which they were going.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

若6:16-21   (讀經 ── 宗6:1-7   詠33)
到了晚上,耶穌的門徒下到海邊,上船要到海對岸的葛法翁去。天已黑了,耶穌還沒有來到他們那裡。海上因起了大風,便翻騰起來。當他們搖櫓大約過了二十五或三十「斯塔狄」時,看見耶穌在海面上行走,臨近了船,便害怕起來。但他卻向他們說:「是我,不要害怕!」他們便欣然接他上船,船就立時到了他們所要去的地方。

默 想

  • 大家可有遊走於愛與懼怕之中?可能更經常的,是遇到懼怕,由感官上的懼怕,如怕黑、怕狗、怕失重心,到怕別人的眼光、怕不被接納、怕被扣分、怕覺得自己不夠好、怕事與願違、怕失望絕望……
  • 愛呢?被愛、被關心、被痛錫,去愛、去關心別人、為身邊人焦急……
  • 愛與恐懼,有時是相對的。愛裡,真的可以減少懼怕,以致沒有懼怕。
  • 你這裡,耶穌堅定地告訴門徒:「是我,不要害怕!」潛台詞還有:「是我,不要害怕!因為我愛你們,我的愛足夠抹去你們的恐懼。」
  • 在生命的浪濤中,耶穌這句語重心長的話,可會成為我們的定心劑,或座標、掌舵,提醒我們勇往直前?!有信德,定與靜自會出現。
