神父講道 – 主顯節後 (週三) (2014年1月8日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 6:45-52

耶穌使五千人吃飽以後,便催迫門徒們上船,先到對岸貝特賽達去。這期間他遣散了群眾。耶穌辭別了眾人之後,便往山上祈禱去了。到了夜晚,船已在海中,耶穌獨自在陸地上。他看見門徒艱苦地在搖櫓。他們正遇著逆風。約夜間四更時分,耶穌步行海面,朝著他們走來,有意越過他們去。門徒看見他步行海上,以為是個妖怪,就都驚叫起來,因為眾人都看見到他,遂驚慌不已。耶穌連忙與他們講話,向他們說:「放心!是我,不要怕!」遂到他們那裏上船,風就停了。他們心中越發驚奇,因為他們還不明白關於增餅的事,他們的心還是遲鈍。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 6:45-52

45 Immediately he made his disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, to Beth-sa’ida, while he dismissed the crowd. 46 And after he had taken leave of them, he went up on the mountain to pray. 47 And when evening came, the boat was out on the sea, and he was alone on the land. 48 And he saw that they were making headway painfully, for the wind was against them. And about the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. He meant to pass by them, 49 but when they saw him walking on the sea they thought it was a ghost, and cried out; 50 for they all saw him, and were terrified. But immediately he spoke to them and said, “Take heart, it is I; have no fear.” 51 And he got into the boat with them and the wind ceased. And they were utterly astounded, 52 for they did not understand about the loaves, but their hearts were hardened.

谷6:45-52  (讀經 ── 若一4:11-18  詠72)

耶穌使五千人吃飽以後,便催迫門徒們上船,先到對岸貝特賽達去。這期間他遣散了群眾。耶穌辭別了眾人之後,便往山上祈禱去了。到了夜晚,船已在海中,耶穌獨自在陸地上。他看見門徒艱苦地在搖櫓。他們正遇著逆風。約夜間四更時分,耶穌步行海面,朝著他們走來,有意越過他們去。門徒看見他步行海上,以為是個妖怪,就都驚叫起來,因為眾人都看見到他,遂驚慌不已。耶穌連忙與他們講話,向他們說:「放心!是我,不要怕!」遂到他們那裡上船,風就停了。他們心中越發驚奇,因為他們還不明白關於增餅的事,他們的心還是遲鈍。

 

默 想

  • 若我們遇上什麼人生的難題,總記著耶穌這句:「放心!是我,不要怕!」能否增添我們的信德,定睛在耶穌身上,不再驚懼,而增添對生命的熱愛?
  • 門徒們似乎仍大惑不解,心裡遲鈍,在想著耶穌究竟是誰?
  • 唯有當我們的心變得明淨,認出生命的掌舵者是基督,領略祂的指引。
  • 換句話說,若我們的生命有一天不再有耶穌,可以想像,是何許景況?不再信,不願相信,沒有決心的信,連天主都「無能為力」啊。
