神父講道 – 復活期第三週 (週六) (2013年4月20日)

恭讀聖若望福 6:60-69

耶穌的門徒中有許多人聽了他的話,便說:「這話生硬,誰能聽得下去呢?」耶穌自知他的門徒對這話竊竊私議,便向他們說:「這話使你們起反感嗎?那麼,如果你們看到人子升到他先前所在的地方去,將怎樣呢?使生活的是神,肉一無所用;我給你們所講論的話,就是神,就是生命。但你們中間有些人,卻不相信。」原來,耶穌從起頭就知道那些人不信,和誰要出賣他。所以他又說:「為此,我對你們說過:除非蒙父恩賜的,誰也不能到我這裏來。」從此,他的門徒中有許多人退去了,不再同他往來。於是耶穌向那十二人說:「難道你們也願走嗎?」西滿伯多祿回答說:「主!惟你有永生的話。我們去投奔誰呢?我們相信,而且已知道你是天主的聖者。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 6:60-69

60 Many of his disciples, when they heard it, said, “This is a hard saying; who can listen to it?” 61 But Jesus, knowing in himself that his disciples murmured at it, said to them, “Do you take offense at this? 62 Then what if you were to see the Son of man ascending where he was before? 63 It is the spirit that gives life, the flesh is of no avail; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life. 64 But there are some of you that do not believe.” For Jesus knew from the first who those were that did not believe, and who it was that would betray him. 65 And he said, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by the Father.” 66 After this many of his disciples drew back and no longer went about with him. 67 Jesus said to the twelve, “Do you also wish to go away?” 68 Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life; 69 and we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God.”

若6:60-69   (讀經 ── 宗9:31-42   詠116)
耶穌的門徒中有許多人聽了他的話,便說:「這話生硬,誰能聽得下去呢?」耶穌自知他的門徒對這話竊竊私議,便向他們說:「這話使你們起反感嗎?那麼,如果你們看到人子升到他先前所在的地方去,將怎樣呢?使生活的是神,肉一無所用;我給你們所講論的話,就是神,就是生命。但你們中間有些人,卻不相信。」原來,耶穌從起頭就知道那些人不信,和誰要出賣他。所以他又說:「為此,我對你們說過:除非蒙父恩賜的,誰也不能到我這裡來。」從此,他的門徒中有許多人退去了,不再同他往來。於是耶穌向那十二人說:「難道你們也願走嗎?」西滿伯多祿回答說:「主!惟你有永生的話。我們去投奔誰呢?我們相信,而且已知道你是天主的聖者。」

默 想

  • 有很多門徒離去。今天,我們當然不會因這段經文而離棄主。但是,這又不表示我們必定會真正和基督聯合。
  • 原因是,我們雖然領聖體,但卻又可以對聖體冷漠!我們又怎樣可以和基督聯合呢?
  • 所以,只有和伯多祿同樣反應的人,才能和主真正聯合:主!惟你有永生的話。我們去投奔誰呢?
  • 要和主聯合,就要同時放下自我,就像耶穌一樣,他為我們捨己,我們也願意為他而捨己。
