神父講道 – 復活期第七週 (週五) (2013年5月17日)

恭讀聖若望福音 21:15-19

耶穌顯現給門徒,同他們吃完了早飯,就對西滿伯多祿說:「若望的兒子西滿,你比他們更愛我嗎?」伯多祿回答說:「主,是的,你知道我愛你。」耶穌就對他說:「你餵養我的羔羊。」耶穌第二次又問他說:「若望的兒子西滿,你愛我嗎?」伯多祿回答說:「主,是的,你知道我愛你。」耶穌就對他說:「你牧放我的羊群。」耶穌第三次問他說:「若望的兒子西滿,你愛我嗎?」伯多祿因耶穌第三次問他說:「你愛我嗎?」便憂愁起來,遂向他說:「主啊!一切你都知道,你曉得我愛你。」耶穌對他說:「你餵養我的羊群。」
耶穌又說:「我實實在在告訴你:你年少時,自己束上腰,任意往來;但到了老年,你要伸出手來,別人要給你束上腰,帶你往你不願意去的地方。」耶穌說這話,是指他將以怎樣的死去光榮天主。說完這話,又對他說:「跟隨我吧!」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 21:15-19

15 When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” 16 A second time he said to him, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Tend my sheep.” 17 He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” And he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep. 18 Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were young, you girded yourself and walked where you would; but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will gird you and carry you where you do not wish to go.” 19 (This he said to show by what death he was to glorify God.) And after this he said to him, “Follow me.”

若21:15-19   (讀經 ── 宗25:13-21   詠103)
耶穌顯現給門徒,同他們吃完了早飯,就對西滿伯多祿說:「若望的兒子西滿,你比他們更愛我嗎?」伯多祿回答說:「主,是的,你知道我愛你。」耶穌就對他說:「你餵養我的羔羊。」耶穌第二次又問他說:「若望的兒子西滿,你愛我嗎?」伯多祿回答說:「主,是的,你知道我愛你。」耶穌就對他說:「你牧放我的羊群。」耶穌第三次問他說:「若望的兒子西滿,你愛我嗎?」伯多祿因耶穌第三次問他說:「你愛我嗎?」便憂愁起來,遂向他說:「主啊!一切你都知道,你曉得我愛你。」耶穌對他說:「你餵養我的羊群。」
耶穌又說:「我實實在在告訴你:你年少時,自己束上腰,任意往來;但到了老年,你要伸出手來,別人要給你束上腰,帶你往你不願意去的地方。」耶穌說這話,是指他將以怎樣的死去光榮天主。說完這話,又對他說:「跟隨我吧!」

默 想

  • 若望寫這福音時,伯多祿已光榮殉道了,所以他寫了「到了老年,你要伸出手來,別人要給你束上腰,帶你往你不願意去的地方」。
  • 這並不是說耶穌沒有預言能力,而是這福音的確在伯多祿殉道後寫成的。
  • 耶穌沒有發這預言,是因為伯多祿有自由選擇權。極端點說,伯多祿最後也有背教的權利,但他沒有這樣做,是他的個人抉擇。耶穌的預言沒有把他的命運預定了。
  • 所以,我們每人都為自己的後果負責!不能怨天尤人!
