聖道明 (司鐸) (紀念)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 16:13-23

那時候,耶穌來到了斐理伯的凱撒勒雅境內,就問門徒說:「人們說人子是誰?」他們說:「有人說是洗者若翰;有人說是厄里亞;也有人說是耶肋米亞,或先知中的一位。」耶穌對他們說:「你們說我是誰?」西滿伯多祿回答說:「你是默西亞,永生天主之子。」耶穌回答他說:「約納的兒子西滿,你是有福的!因為不是肉和血啟示了你,而是我在天之父。我再給你說:你是伯多祿(磐石),在這磐石上,我要建立我的教會,陰間的門決不能戰勝她。我要將天國的鑰匙交給你:凡你在地上所束縛的,在天上也要被束縛;凡你在地上所釋放的,在天上也要被釋放。」他遂即嚴禁門徒,不要對任何人說他是默西亞。
從那時起,耶穌就開始向門徒說明:他必須上耶路撒冷去,要由長老、司祭長和經師們受許多痛苦,並將被殺,但第三天要復活。伯多祿便拉耶穌到一邊,諫責他說:「主,千萬不可!這事絕不會臨到你身上!」耶穌轉身對伯多祿說:「撒殫,退到我後面去!你是我的絆腳石,因為你所體會的,不是天主的事,而是人的事。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 16:13-23

13 Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesare’a Philip’pi, he asked his disciples, “Who do men say that the Son of man is?” 14 And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Eli’jah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”16 Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 17 And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jona! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. 18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the powers of death shall not prevail against it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” 20 Then he strictly charged the disciples to tell no one that he was the Christ. 21 From that time Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised. 22 And Peter took him and began to rebuke him, saying, “God forbid, Lord! This shall never happen to you.” 23 But he turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindrance to me; for you are not on the side of God, but of men.”

瑪16:13-23  (讀經 ── 戶20:1-13  詠95)
耶穌來到了斐理伯的凱撒勒雅境內,就問門徒說:「人們說人子是誰?」他們說:「有人說是洗者若翰;有人說是厄里亞;也有人說是耶肋米亞,或先知中的一位。」耶穌對他們說:「你們說我是誰?」西滿伯多祿回答說:「你是默西亞,永生天主之子。」耶穌回答他說:「約納的兒子西滿,你是有福的!因為不是肉和血啟示了你,而是我在天之父。我再給你說:你是伯多祿(磐石),在這磐石上,我要建立我的教會,陰間的門決不能戰勝她。我要將天國的鑰匙交給你:凡你在地上所束縛的,在天上也要被束縛;凡你在地上所釋放的,在天上也要被釋放。」他遂即嚴禁門徒,不要對任何人說他是默西亞。
從那時起,耶穌就開始向門徒說明:他必須上耶路撒冷去,要由長老、司祭長和經師們受許多痛苦,並將被殺,但第三天要復活。伯多祿便拉耶穌到一邊,諫責他說:「主,千萬不可!這事絕不會臨到你身上!」耶穌轉身對伯多祿說:「撒殫,退到我後面去!你是我的絆腳石,因為你所體會的,不是天主的事,而是人的事。」

 

默 想

  • 伯多祿,第一任教宗,但他卻是唯一一個被耶穌斥責為撒殫的宗徒!連猶達斯也沒有!
  • 看見伯多祿,我們會有一種窩心,因為他也十分軟弱,是一個百分百的人,和你我一樣!
  • 伯多祿殉道前,絕對想不到我們的教會會發展到像今天這樣,擴展到全世界。他也不知道,他會被封為聖人!
  • 我們成為聖人的機會當然很低,但教會將來發展到怎樣的地步,卻絕對是想像不到,就像伯多祿想像不到今天的教會一樣!
