神父講道 – 聖加大利納 (貞女、聖師) (紀念) (週二) (2014年4月29日)

恭讀聖若望福音 3:7-15

那時候,耶穌對尼苛德摩說:「你不要驚奇,因我給你說了,你們應該由上而生。風隨意向那裏吹,你聽到風的響聲,卻不知道風從那裏來,往那裏去:凡由聖神而生的就是這樣。」尼苛德摩問說:「這事怎樣能成就呢?」耶穌回答說:「你是以色列的師傅,連這事你都不知道嗎?我實實在在告訴你:我們知道的,我們才講論;我們見過的,我們才作證;而你們卻不接受我們的見證。若我給你們說地上的事,你們尚且不信;若我給你們說天上的事,你們怎麼會信呢?沒有人上過天,除了那自天降下而仍在天上的人子。正如梅瑟曾在曠野裏高舉了蛇,人子也應照樣被舉起來。使凡信的人,在他內得永生。

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 3:7-15

7 Do not marvel that I said to you, `You must be born anew.’ 8 The wind blows where it wills, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know whence it comes or whither it goes; so it is with every one who is born of the Spirit.” 9 Nicode’mus said to him, “How can this be?”10 Jesus answered him, “Are you a teacher of Israel, and yet you do not understand this? 11 Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know, and bear witness to what we have seen; but you do not receive our testimony. 12 If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you heavenly things? 13 No one has ascended into heaven but he who descended from heaven, the Son of man. 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.”

若3:7-15  (讀經 ── 宗4:32-37  詠93)

耶穌對尼苛德摩說:「你不要驚奇,因我給你說了,你們應該由上而生。風隨意向那裡吹,你聽到風的響聲,卻不知道風從那裡來,往那裡去:凡由聖神而生的就是這樣。」尼苛德摩問說:「這事怎樣能成就呢?」耶穌回答說:「你是以色列的師傅,連這事你都不知道嗎?我實實在在告訴你:我們知道的,我們才講論;我們見過的,我們才作證;而你們卻不接受我們的見證。若我給你們說地上的事,你們尚且不信;若我給你們說天上的事,你們怎麼會信呢?沒有人上過天,除了那自天降下而仍在天上的人子。正如梅瑟曾在曠野裡高舉了蛇,人子也應照樣被舉起來。使凡信的人,在他內得永生。

 

默 想

  • 耶穌一再告知,他將被高舉,正表示他必須走進逾越之旅。
  • 理論上,我們這些跟隨基督的,也曾經過自己的逾越,經歷那「由上而生」的路。
  • 唯有真正走過逾越之旅,才有那持續的心火,為基督作證;深切希望這世界變得更美好,而靠的不是自己,是上主。
  • 「天主自會照料!」憑的也是一顆信靠的心。

神父講道 – 復活期第二週 (週一) (2014年4月28日)

恭讀聖若望福音 3:1-8

有一個法利塞黨人,名叫尼苛德摩,是個猶太人的首領。有一夜,他來到耶穌前,向他說:「辣彼,我們知道你是由天主而來的師傅,因為天主若不同他在一起,誰也不能行你所行的這些神蹟。」耶穌回答說:「我實實在在告訴你:人除非由上而生,不能見到天主的國。」尼苛德摩說:「人已年老,怎樣能重生呢?難道他還能再入母腹而重生嗎?」耶穌回答說:「我實實在在告訴你:人除非由水和聖神而生,不能進天主的國:由肉生的屬於肉,由神生的屬於神。你不要驚奇,因我給你說了:你們應該由上而生。風隨意向那裏吹,你聽到風的響聲,卻不知道風從那裏來,往那裏去。凡由聖神而生的就是這樣。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 3:1-8

1 Now there was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicode’mus, a ruler of the Jews. 2 This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that you do, unless God is with him.” 3 Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born anew, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” 4 Nicode’mus said to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” 5 Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, `You must be born anew.’ 8 The wind blows where it wills, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know whence it comes or whither it goes; so it is with every one who is born of the Spirit.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.
