神父講道 – 復活期第七週 (週六) (2013年5月18日)

恭讀聖若望福音 21:20-25

那時,伯多祿轉過身來,看見耶穌所愛的那個門徒跟著,即是在晚餐時靠耶穌胸膛前問「主!是誰出賣你?」的那個門徒。伯多祿一看見他,就對耶穌說:「主!他怎樣?」耶穌向他說:「我如果要他存留直到我來,與你何干?你只管跟隨我。」於是這話傳在兄弟之間,說那個門徒不會死的。可是耶穌並沒有說:「他不死」;而說:「我若要他留著,直到我來,和你有什麼關繫?」
為這些事作證,並且記了這些事的,就是這個門徒。我們知道他的作證是真實的。但耶穌還行了別的許多事跡,若要一一寫出,那末要寫的書,我想世界也容納不下。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 21:20-25

20 Peter turned and saw following them the disciple whom Jesus loved, who had lain close to his breast at the supper and had said, “Lord, who is it that is going to betray you?” 21 When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, “Lord, what about this man?” 22 Jesus said to him, “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you? Follow me!” 23 The saying spread abroad among the brethren that this disciple was not to die; yet Jesus did not say to him that he was not to die, but, “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you?” 24 This is the disciple who is bearing witness to these things, and who has written these things; and we know that his testimony is true. 25 But there are also many other things which Jesus did; were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written.

若21:20-25   (讀經 ── 宗28:16-20, 30-31   詠11)
伯多祿轉過身來,看見耶穌所愛的那個門徒跟著,即是在晚餐時靠耶穌胸膛前問「主!是誰出賣你?」的那個門徒。伯多祿一看見他,就對耶穌說:「主!他怎樣?」耶穌向他說:「我如果要他存留直到我來,與你何干?你只管跟隨我。」於是這話傳在兄弟之間,說那個門徒不會死的。可是耶穌並沒有說:「他不死」;而說:「我若要他留著,直到我來,和你有什麼關繫?」
為這些事作證,並且記了這些事的,就是這個門徒。我們知道他的作證是真實的。但耶穌還行了別的許多事跡,若要一一寫出,那末要寫的書,我想世界也容納不下。

默 想

  • 伯多祿所指的門徒,應是指若望。當年可能真的有謠言說若望不會死,所以有這段有趣的補充。
  • 結果,若望最後是死了,眾聖徒也和他一樣,懷著復活的希望而安息——對死亡沒有懼怕!
  • 我們也是一樣,百分百確定懷著復活的希望,死亡也就沒有什麼可怕了。
  • 聖保祿在羅馬書也說:我深信,無論是死亡,是生活……都不能使我們與天主的愛相隔絕。若有這樣的信仰,死亡並不可怕!
