神父講道 – 復活節八日慶祝期 (星期三) (2022年4月20日)

恭讀聖路加福音 24:13-35

就在那一天,門徒中有兩個人往一個村莊去,村名厄瑪烏,離耶路撒冷約六十「斯塔狄」。他們彼此談論所發生的一切事。正談話討論的時候,耶穌親自走近他們,與他們同行。他們的眼睛卻被阻止住了,以致認不出他來,耶穌對他們說:「你們走路,彼此談論的是些什麼事?」他們就站住,面帶愁容。一個名叫克羅帕的,回答他說:「獨有你在耶路撒冷作客,不知道在那裏這幾天所發生的事嗎?」耶穌問他們說:「什麼事?」他們回答說:「就是有關納匝肋人耶穌的事。他本是一位先知,在天主及眾百姓前,行事說話都有權力。我們的司祭長及首領竟解送了他,判了他死罪,釘他在十字架上。我們原指望他就是那要拯救以色列的。可是——此外還有:這事發生到今天,已是第三天了。我們中有幾個婦女驚嚇了我們;她們清早到了墳墓那裏,沒有看見他的遺體,回來說她們見了天使顯現,天使說他復活了。我們中也有幾個到過墳墓那裡,所遇見的事,如同婦女們所說的一樣,但是沒有看見他。」耶穌於是對他們說:「唉!無知的人哪!為信先知們所說的一切話,你們的心竟是這般遲鈍!默西亞不是必須受這些苦難,才進入他的光榮嗎?」他於是從梅瑟及眾先知開始,把全部經書論及他的話,都給他們解釋了。當他們臨近了他們要去的村莊時,耶穌裝作還要前行。他們強留他說:「請同我們一起住下吧!因為快到晚上,天已垂暮了。」耶穌就進去,同他們住下。當耶穌與他們坐下吃飯的時候,就拿起餅來,祝福了,擘開,遞給他們。他們的眼睛開了,這才認出耶穌來;但他卻由他們眼前隱沒了。他們就彼此說:「當他在路上與我們談話,給我們講解聖經的時候,我們的心不是火熱的嗎?」他們遂即動身,返回耶路撒冷,遇見那十一門徒,及同他們一起的人,正聚在一起,彼此談論說:「主真復活了,並顯現給西滿了!」一人就把在路上的事,及在分餅時,他們怎樣認出了耶穌,述說了一遍。

(Wednesday in the Octave of Easter)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 24:13-35

That very day, the first day of the week, two of Jesus’ disciples were going to a village seven miles from Jerusalem called Emmaus, and they were conversing about all the things that had occurred. And it happened that while they were conversing and debating, Jesus himself drew near and walked with them, but their eyes were prevented from recognizing him. He asked them, “What are you discussing as you walk along?” They stopped, looking downcast. One of them, named Cleopas, said to him in reply, “Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem who does not know of the things that have taken place there in these days?” And he replied to them, “What sort of things?” They said to him, “The things that happened to Jesus the Nazarene, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people, how our chief priests and rulers both handed him over to a sentence of death and crucified him. But we were hoping that he would be the one to redeem Israel; and besides all this, it is now the third day since this took place. Some women from our group, however, have astounded us: they were at the tomb early in the morning and did not find his Body; they came back and reported that they had indeed seen a vision of angels who announced that he was alive. Then some of those with us went to the tomb and found things just as the women had described, but him they did not see.” And he said to them, “Oh, how foolish you are! How slow of heart to believe all that the prophets spoke! Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory?” Then beginning with Moses and all the prophets, he interpreted to them what referred to him in all the Scriptures. As they approached the village to which they were going, he gave the impression that he was going on farther. But they urged him, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening and the day is almost over.” So he went in to stay with them. And it happened that, while he was with them at table, he took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them. With that their eyes were opened and they recognized him, but he vanished from their sight. Then they said to each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he spoke to us on the way and opened the Scriptures to us?” So they set out at once and returned to Jerusalem where they found gathered together the Eleven and those with them who were saying, “The Lord has truly been raised and has appeared to Simon!” Then the two recounted what had taken place on the way and how he was made known to them in the breaking of the bread.
