聖巴爾多祿茂 (宗徒) (慶日)

恭讀聖若望福音 1:45-51

那時候,斐理伯遇到納塔乃耳,就向他說:「梅瑟在法律上所記載,和先知們所預報的,我們找著了,就是若瑟的兒子,出身於納匝肋的耶穌。」納塔乃耳便向他說:「從納匝肋還能出什麼好事嗎?」斐理伯向他說:「你來看一看吧!」耶穌看見納塔乃耳向自己走來,就指著他說:「看,這確是一個以色列人,在他內毫無詭詐。」納塔乃耳向他說:「你從那裏認識我呢?」耶穌回答說:「斐理伯叫你以前,當你還在無花果樹下時,我就看見了你。」納塔乃耳回答說:「辣彼!你是天主子,你是以色列的君王。」耶穌遂說道:「因為我向你說:我看見了你在無花果樹下,你就信了嗎?你要看見比這更大的事!」又向他說:「我實實在在告訴你們:你們要看見天開,天主的天使在人子身上,上去下來。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 1:45-51

45 Philip found Nathanael, and said to him, “We have found him of whom Moses in the law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” 46 Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.” 47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and said of him, “Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!” 48 Nathanael said to him, “How do you know me?” Jesus answered him, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.” 49 Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!” 50 Jesus answered him, “Because I said to you, I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You shall see greater things than these.” 51 And he said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.”

若1:45-51  (默21:9-14  詠145)  (聖巴爾多祿茂)

斐理伯遇到納塔乃耳,就向他說:「梅瑟在法律上所記載,和先知們所預報的,我們找著了,就是若瑟的兒子,出身於納匝肋的耶穌。」納塔乃耳便向他說:「從納匝肋還能出什麼好事嗎?」斐理伯向他說:「你來看一看吧!」耶穌看見納塔乃耳向自己走來,就指著他說:「看,這確是一個以色列人,在他內毫無詭詐。」納塔乃耳向他說:「你從那裡認識我呢?」耶穌回答說:「斐理伯叫你以前,當你還在無花果樹下時,我就看見了你。」納塔乃耳回答說:「辣彼!你是天主子,你是以色列的君王。」耶穌遂說道:「因為我向你說:我看見了你在無花果樹下,你就信了嗎?你要看見比這更大的事!」又向他說:「我實實在在告訴你們:你們要看見天開,天主的天使在人子身上,上去下來。」

 

默 想

  • 耶穌看納塔乃耳,是看到他的內心,直入他的肺腑。
  • 納塔乃耳的感受就是,突然有一個人完全明白自己,這是一種很大的知遇之感,因為我們日常很少遇到別人會很明白自己,即使是親人也做不到。
  • 十分肯定的是,耶穌當年明白納塔乃耳,今天也同樣明白我!
  • 一個難題是,我們有沒有發覺,耶穌是這樣的明白我?我又願意怎樣回應?
