追思已亡者彌撒 (週五) (2015年11月20日)

恭讀聖若望福音 11:17-27

耶穌一到伯達尼,得知拉匝祿在墳墓裏已經四天了。伯達尼靠近耶路撒冷,相距約十五「斯塔狄」,因而有許多猶太人來到瑪爾大和瑪利亞那裏,為她們兄弟的死安慰她們。瑪爾大一聽說耶穌來了,便去迎接他;瑪利亞仍坐在家裏。瑪爾大對耶穌說:「若是你在這裏,我的兄弟決不會死!就是現在,我也知道:你無論向天主求什麼,天主必要賜給你。」耶穌對她說:「你的兄弟必定要復活。」瑪爾大說:「我知道在末日復活時,他必要復活。」耶穌對她說:「我就是復活,就是生命;信從我的,即使死了,仍要活著;凡活著而信從我的人,必永遠不死。你信麼?」她回答說:「是的,主,我信你是默西亞,天主子,要來到世界上的那一位。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 11:17-27

17 Now when Jesus came, he found that Laz’arus had already been in the tomb four days. 18 Bethany was near Jerusalem, about two miles off, 19 and many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to console them concerning their brother. 20 When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went and met him, while Mary sat in the house. 21 Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 And even now I know that whatever you ask from God, God will give you.” 23 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” 24 Martha said to him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” 25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, 26 and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” 27 She said to him, “Yes, Lord; I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, he who is coming into the world.”

瑪 12:46-50  (匝 2:14-17  詠:路1:46-55)

耶穌還同群眾說話的時候,看,他的母親和他的兄弟站在外邊,想要同他說話。有人告訴他說:「看!你的母親同你的兄弟站在外邊,想要同你說話。」他卻回答那告訴他的人說:「誰是我的母親?誰是我的兄弟?」遂伸出他的手,指著自己的門徒說:「看!我的母親,我的兄弟!不拘誰遵行我在天之父的旨意,他就是我的兄弟、姊妹和母親。」

 

默 想

  • 聖母時常被教會形容為教會的母親,天主之母,很多的名號。
  • 但是,很少人會看,其實聖母真的是一個母親。一個嬰孩成長至一個成年男士,聖母就是這男士的母親。
  • 而這男士,在他最後生命的三年,這男士十分令母親憂心,最後是傷心到不得了。
  • 這位母親,是位有血有肉的母親,她應是全世界最了解母親痛苦的母親。
