神父講道 – 復活期第四週 (週五) (2015年5月1日)

恭讀聖若望福音 14:1-6

那時,耶穌對門徒說:「你們心裏不要煩亂;你們要信賴天主,也要信賴我。在我父的家裏,有許多住處,我去,原是為給你們預備地方;如不然,我早就告訴了你們。我去了,為你們預備了地方以後,我必再來接你們到我那裏去,為的是我在那裏,你們也在那裏。我去的地方,你們知道往那裏的路。」多默說:「主!我們不知道你往那裏去,怎麼會知道那條路呢?」耶穌回答說:「我是道路、真理、生命,除非經過我,誰也不能到父那裏去。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 14:1-6

1 “Let not your hearts be troubled; believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? 3 And when I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. 4 And you know the way where I am going.” 5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?” 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

若14:1-6  (宗13:26-33  詠2)

耶穌對門徒說:「你們心裡不要煩亂;你們要信賴天主,也要信賴我。在我父的家裡,有許多住處,我去,原是為給你們預備地方;如不然,我早就告訴了你們。我去了,為你們預備了地方以後,我必再來接你們到我那裡去,為的是我在那裡,你們也在那裡。我去的地方,你們知道往那裡的路。」多默說:「主!我們不知道你往那裡去,怎麼會知道那條路呢?」耶穌回答說:「我是道路、真理、生命,除非經過我,誰也不能到父那裡去。」

默 想

  • 當然耶穌指的不是一個空間的地方,但多默卻誤會了。
  • 所以,耶穌就回答,祂是「道路、真理、生命」。想把多默的心思從空間移到心靈中。
  • 以前的教友時常仍然會認為天堂地獄是在某個空間或地方,今天教會的教導已帶引我們看得更闊,使我們明白與天主同在就是天堂。
  • 同時,有些教友仍然在期待著末世。其實,教會認為,基督降世後,已踏入末世了,我們現在已處身末世了。

神父講道 – 復活期第四週 (週四) (2015年4月30日)

恭讀聖若望福音 13:16-20

耶穌為門徒洗腳後,說:「我實實在在告訴你們:沒有僕人大過主人的,也沒有奉使的大過派遣他的。你們既知道了這些事,如果實行,便是有福的。我不是說你們全體,我認識我所揀選的;但經上所記載的必須應驗:『吃過我飯的人,也舉腳踢我。』就是現在,事未發生以前,我告訴你們,好叫事發生以後,你們相信我是那一位。我實實在在告訴你們:凡接待我所派遣的,就是接待我;接待我的,就是接待那派遣我來的。」

—上主的話。

(4th Week of Easter – Thursday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 13:16-20

16 Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him. 17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them. 18 I am not speaking of you all; I know whom I have chosen; it is that the scripture may be fulfilled, `He who ate my bread has lifted his heel against me.’ 19 I tell you this now, before it takes place, that when it does take place you may believe that I am he. 20 Truly, truly, I say to you, he who receives any one whom I send receives me; and he who receives me receives him who sent me.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

若13:16-20  (宗13:13-25  詠89)

耶穌為門徒洗腳後,說:「我實實在在告訴你們:沒有僕人大過主人的,也沒有奉使的大過派遣他的。你們既知道了這些事,如果實行,便是有福的。我不是說你們全體,我認識我所揀選的;但經上所記載的必須應驗:『吃過我飯的人,也舉腳踢我。』就是現在,事未發生以前,我告訴你們,好叫事發生以後,你們相信我是那一位。我實實在在告訴你們:凡接待我所派遣的,就是接待我;接待我的,就是接待那派遣我來的。」

默 想

  • 沒有僕人大過主人!但我們今天差不多所有人都以為自己大過耶穌!
  • 我們藉宗教的名義,去做惡事。所以有人說,有宗教歷史以來,人們藉宗教名義殺人,比沒有宗教的人多!
  • 幸好今日天主教已進步多了!最少,我們絕對不鼓勵戰爭。
  • 若有一天,我們連「絕罰」這些東西也取消,那就真的承認我們教會是沒有權,也沒有勢,是好像耶穌一樣的受苦僕人了。

神父講道 – 聖加大利納 (貞女、聖師) (紀念) (週三) (2015年4月29日)

恭讀聖若望福音 12:44-50

那時,耶穌呼喊說:「信我的,不是信我,而是信那派遣我來的;看見我的,也就是看見那派遣我來的。我身為光明,來到了世界上,使凡信我的,不留在黑暗中。無論誰若聽我的話而不遵行,我不審判他,因為我不是為審判世界而來,乃是為拯救世界。拒絕我,及不接受我話的,自有審判他的:就是我所說的話,要在末日審判他;因為我沒有憑我自己說話,而是派遣我來的父,他給我出了命,叫我該說什麼,該講什麼。我知道他的命令就是永生;所以,我所講論的,全是依照父對我所說的而講論的。」

—上主的話。

(Memorial of Saint Catherine of Siena, Virgin and Doctor of the Church)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 12:44-50

44 And Jesus cried out and said, “He who believes in me, believes not in me but in him who sent me. 45 And he who sees me sees him who sent me. 46 I have come as light into the world, that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness. 47 If any one hears my sayings and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. 48 He who rejects me and does not receive my sayings has a judge; the word that I have spoken will be his judge on the last day. 49 For I have not spoken on my own authority; the Father who sent me has himself given me commandment what to say and what to speak. 50 And I know that his commandment is eternal life. What I say, therefore, I say as the Father has bidden me.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

若12:44-50  (宗12:24-13:5  詠67)

耶穌呼喊說:「信我的,不是信我,而是信那派遣我來的;看見我的,也就是看見那派遣我來的。我身為光明,來到了世界上,使凡信我的,不留在黑暗中。無論誰若聽我的話而不遵行,我不審判他,因為我不是為審判世界而來,乃是為拯救世界。拒絕我,及不接受我話的,自有審判他的:就是我所說的話,要在末日審判他;因為我沒有憑我自己說話,而是派遣我來的父,他給我出了命,叫我該說什麼,該講什麼。我知道他的命令就是永生;所以,我所講論的,全是依照父對我所說的而講論的。」

默 想

  • 耶穌再一次強調他來不是為審判世界,乃是拯救世界。
  • 但是,整個基督宗教,包括天主教和基督教,都曾經很強調地獄的恐怖!我們是用人的想法去嚇教友。那不是耶穌的想法。
  • 當現代的人不再恐懼一些空洞的威嚇時,教友人數便拾級而下。
  • 所以,教會當局已清晰地把救恩和生命質素拉上關係,而不再抽象地說天堂地獄了。

神父講道 – 復活期第四週 (週二) (2015年4月28日)

恭讀聖若望福音 10:22-30

那時,在耶路撒冷舉行重建節,正是冬天。耶穌徘徊於聖殿內撒羅滿遊廊下。猶太人圍起他來,向他說:「你使我們的心神懸疑不定,要到幾時呢?你如果是默西亞,就坦白告訴我們吧!」耶穌答覆說:「我已告訴了你們,你們卻不相信;我以我父的名所作的工作,為我作證,但你們還是不信,因為你們不是屬於我的羊。我的羊聽我的聲音,我也認識他們,他們也跟隨我;我賜予他們永生,他們永遠不會喪亡;誰也不能從我手中把他們奪去。我那賜給我羊群的父,超越一切,為此,誰也不能從我父手裏將他們奪去。我與父原是一體。」

—上主的話。

(4th Week of Easter – Tuesday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 10:22-30

22 It was the feast of the Dedication at Jerusalem; 23 it was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the portico of Solomon. 24 So the Jews gathered round him and said to him, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly.” 25 Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness to me; 26 but you do not believe, because you do not belong to my sheep. 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me; 28 and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.
