神父講道 – 復活期第三週 (週六) (2014年5月10日)

恭讀聖若望福 6:60-69

耶穌的門徒中有許多人聽了他的話,便說:「這話生硬,誰能聽得下去呢?」耶穌自知他的門徒對這話竊竊私議,便向他們說:「這話使你們起反感嗎?那麼,如果你們看到人子升到他先前所在的地方去,將怎樣呢?使生活的是神,肉一無所用;我給你們所講論的話,就是神,就是生命。但你們中間有些人,卻不相信。」原來,耶穌從起頭就知道那些人不信,和誰要出賣他。所以他又說:「為此,我對你們說過:除非蒙父恩賜的,誰也不能到我這裏來。」從此,他的門徒中有許多人退去了,不再同他往來。於是耶穌向那十二人說:「難道你們也願走嗎?」西滿伯多祿回答說:「主!惟你有永生的話。我們去投奔誰呢?我們相信,而且已知道你是天主的聖者。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 6:60-69

60 Many of his disciples, when they heard it, said, “This is a hard saying; who can listen to it?” 61 But Jesus, knowing in himself that his disciples murmured at it, said to them, “Do you take offense at this? 62 Then what if you were to see the Son of man ascending where he was before? 63 It is the spirit that gives life, the flesh is of no avail; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life. 64 But there are some of you that do not believe.” For Jesus knew from the first who those were that did not believe, and who it was that would betray him. 65 And he said, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by the Father.” 66 After this many of his disciples drew back and no longer went about with him. 67 Jesus said to the twelve, “Do you also wish to go away?” 68 Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life; 69 and we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God.”

若19:25-27  (讀經 ── 宗1:12-14  詠113)

在耶穌的十字架旁,站著他的母親和他母親的姊妹,還有克羅帕的妻子瑪利亞和瑪利亞瑪達肋納。
耶穌看見母親,又看見他所愛的門徒站在旁邊,就對母親說:「女人,看,你的兒子!」然後;又對那門徒說:「看,你的母親!」就從那時起;那門徒把她接到自己家裡。

 

默 想

  • 耶穌十字架下的母親與愛徒,透過耶穌,互稱母親與兒子,若聖母真的還有其他子女,耶穌怎會請愛徒若望從此照顧聖母?
  • 這一幕也是重要的開端,象徵聖母陪伴新生的教會茁壯成長。而聖母被稱為首位被救贖者。
  • 身為母親目睹兒子的慘況,置身十字架下,勇敢地、默默地彷彿繼續她那反覆思量的進程。聖母可能還在默想自己的兒子,為那徹底的愛表達出來的行動。世界變得不一樣了。
  • 注視十字架上的耶穌,我們可會相信,真愛是絕對有可能的。
