神父講道 – 耶穌顯聖容 (慶日) (週三) (2014年8月6日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 17:1-9

那時候,耶穌帶著伯多祿、雅各伯和他的兄弟若望,單獨帶領他們上了一座高山,在他們面前變了容貌:他的面貌發光有如太陽,他的衣服潔白如光。忽然,梅瑟和厄里亞也顯現給他們,正在同耶穌談話。伯多祿就開口對耶穌說:「主啊!我們在這裏真好!你若願意,我就在這裏張搭三個帳棚:一個為你,一個為梅瑟,一個為厄里亞。」他還在說話的時候,忽有一片光耀的雲彩遮蔽了他們,並且雲中有聲音說:「這是我的愛子,我所喜悅的,你們要聽從他!」門徒聽了,就俯伏在地,非常害怕。耶穌遂前來,撫摸他們說:「起來,不要害怕!」他們舉目一看,任誰都不見了,只有耶穌獨自一人。
他們從山上下來的時候,耶穌囑咐他們說:「非等人子由死者中復活,你們不要將所見的告訴任何人。」

—上主的話。

(Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 17:1-9

1 And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain apart. 2 And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his garments became white as light. 3 And behold, there appeared to them Moses and Eli’jah, talking with him. 4 And Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is well that we are here; if you wish, I will make three booths here, one for you and one for Moses and one for Eli’jah.” 5 He was still speaking, when lo, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him.” 6 When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces, and were filled with awe. 7 But Jesus came and touched them, saying, “Rise, and have no fear.” 8 And when they lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only. 9 And as they were coming down the mountain, Jesus commanded them, “Tell no one the vision, until the Son of man is raised from the dead.”

瑪17:1-9  (耶穌顯聖容)  (讀經 ── 達7:9-10, 13-14  詠97  伯後1:16-19)

耶穌帶著伯多祿、雅各伯和他的兄弟若望,單獨帶領他們上了一座高山,在他們面前變了容貌:他的面貌發光有如太陽,他的衣服潔白如光。忽然,梅瑟和厄里亞也顯現給他們,正在同耶穌談話。伯多祿就開口對耶穌說:「主啊!我們在這裡真好!你若願意,我就在這裡張搭三個帳棚:一個為你,一個為梅瑟,一個為厄里亞。」他還在說話的時候,忽有一片光耀的雲彩遮蔽了他們,並且雲中有聲音說:「這是我的愛子,我所喜悅的,你們要聽從他!」門徒聽了,就俯伏在地,非常害怕。耶穌遂前來,撫摸他們說:「起來,不要害怕!」他們舉目一看,任誰都不見了,只有耶穌獨自一人。
他們從山上下來的時候,耶穌囑咐他們說:「非等人子由死者中復活,你們不要將所見的告訴任何人。」

默 想

  • 伯多祿在此情此景,喜悅沖昏了頭腦,不願離開這個美好境地。但耶穌提醒他們,必須正視現實:要下山,回到生活中,在悲喜交集的生活中,繼續與上主接軌。
  • 面對現實,尤其那個現實充滿挑戰、悲苦、掙扎,我們必須累積勇氣,直視它、面對它,上主自己,以及祂的愛情,就在我們決心面對它、正視它的那一剎。
  • 這段福音,正是耶穌三名愛徒一生不可多得的高峰經驗。我們看自己,曾否經歷高峰經驗?
  • 重要的是,我們如何讓生命中的高峰經驗,成為我們日後面對衝擊、挫敗、低潮時的力量泉源?!
