恭讀聖若望福音 19:25-27

那時候,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裏。

恭讀聖路加福音 2:33-35

那時候,耶穌的父親和母親對西默盎關於耶穌所說的話,感到驚異。西默盎祝福了他們,又向他的母親瑪利亞說:「看,這孩子已被立定,為使以色列中許多人跌倒和復興,並成為反對的記號——至於你,要有一把利劍刺透你的心靈——為叫許多人心中的思念顯露出來。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 19:25-27

But standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing near, he said to his mother, ‘Woman, behold, your son!’ Then he said to the disciple, ‘Behold, your mother!’ And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 2:33-35

33 And his father and his mother marveled at what was said about him; 34 and Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, “Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign that is spoken against 35 (and a sword will pierce through your own soul also), that thoughts out of many hearts may be revealed.”

若19:25-27  (痛苦聖母)  (希5:7-9  詠31)

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

  • 身懸十架的耶穌,把母親交託給愛徒,這位愛徒相信是聖若望,那時,他還是一名少年人。
  • 他把聖母接到自己家裡,可算是聖母沒有其他兒子的側面證明吧。
  • 這份交託,這份信賴,怎不叫人動容?主耶穌在臨終時,跟門徒們建立教會,聖母也在參與和經歷整個救恩工程。
  • 痛苦的聖母,會否記起曾有人述說將有一把利劍,穿透她的心這回事?這把利劍,也將分別聖與俗,聖母深刻地經驗愛子走上十架的苦刑。
  • 讓我們默想聖母的痛苦,在生命的痛苦中,究竟有何啟示?從領報開始,很可能瑪利亞一直在默默地問這個問題,也繼續順服上主的指引。
