神父講道 – 四旬期第五週 (週一) (2010年3月22日)

恭讀聖若望福音 8:12-20
耶穌又向眾人講說:「我是世界的光; 跟隨我的,決不在黑暗中行走,必有生命的光。」法利塞人於是對他說:「你為你自己作證,你的證據是不可憑信的。」耶穌回答說:「我即便為我自己作證,我的證據是可憑信的,因為我知道:我從那裏來,往那裏去;你們卻不知道: 我從那裏來,或往那裏去。你們只憑肉眼判斷,我卻不判斷任何人;即使我判斷,我的判斷仍是真實的,因為我不是獨自一個,而是有我,還有派遣我來的父。在你們的法律上也記載著: 兩個人的作證是可憑信的。今有我為我自己作證,也有派遣我的父,為我作證。」他們使問他說:「你的父在那裏?」耶穌答覆說:「你們不認識我,也不認識我的父;若是你們認識了我,也就認識我的父了。」這些話是耶穌於聖殿施教時,在銀庫院裏所講的。誰也沒有捉拿,因為他的時辰還沒有到。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 8:12-20

On the next day, when the great crowd that had come to the feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,they took palm branches 6 and went out to meet him, and cried out: “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, (even) the king of Israel.”Jesus found an ass and sat upon it, as is written:”Fear no more, O daughter Zion; 7 see, your king comes, seated upon an ass’s colt.” His disciples did not understand this at first, but when Jesus had been glorified they remembered that these things were written about him and that they had done this 8 for him. So the crowd that was with him when he called Lazarus from the tomb and raised him from death continued to testify. This was (also) why the crowd went to meet him, because they heard that he had done this sign. So the Pharisees said to one another, “You see that you are gaining nothing. Look, the whole world 10 has gone after him.”Now there were some Greeks  among those who had come up to worship at the feast.

每日聖言靜思 四旬期第五週 (週一) 3月22日

信仰生活互動坊、塔冷通心靈書舍

若8:1-11 (其他經文──達13:1-9, 15-17, 19-30, 33-62 詠23)
耶穌上了橄欖山。清晨,他又來到聖殿,眾百姓都來到他跟前,他便坐下教訓他們。那時,經師和法利塞人,帶來了一個犯姦淫時,被捉住的婦人,叫她站在中間,便向耶穌說:「師傅!這婦人是正在犯姦淫時,被捉住的,在法律上,梅瑟命令我們,該用石頭砸死這樣的婦人;可是,你說什麼呢?」他們說這話,是要試探耶穌,好能控告他。耶穌卻彎下身,用指頭在地上畫字。因為他們不斷地追問,耶穌便站起身來,向他們說:「你們中間誰沒有罪,先向她投石吧!」耶穌又彎下身,在地上寫字。他們一聽這話,就從年老的開始,到年幼的,一個一個地都溜走了,只留下耶穌一人,和站在那裡的婦人。耶穌於是站起身來,向那婦人說:「婦人!他們在那裡呢?沒有人定你的罪嗎?」那婦人說:「主!沒有人。」耶穌向那婦人說:「我也不定你的罪;去吧!從今以後,不要再犯罪了!」

默 想

  • 上週的聖言靜思中預告主日的默想也提及,每當下次我們「投石」前,要謹慎思量,反省自己是否從沒罪過?我們真的有「投石」的資格嗎?
  • 年紀越長,有時背負的包袱也越重,福音中,耶穌向眾人說話時,是由老到少順序地叮囑。這可謂一個提醒,我們要向小孩子學習,學習他們的單純,懂得淨化自己,不時卸除一個一個的「包袱」,輕身上路。
  • 向人指指點點,談何容易?易地而處,若被人「投石」的是自己又如何?
  • 練就一顆多感恩、少惡意批判的心,那就是一顆儼如耶穌的憐憫心。他憐憫罪婦,但也同時叮囑她:「從今以後,不要再犯罪了!」界線鮮明,崇高的價值門檻依然沒變。

(5th Sunday of Lent)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 8:1-11

1 but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2 Early in the morning he came again to the temple; all the people came to him, and he sat down and taught them. 3 The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery, and placing her in the midst 4 they said to him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. 5 Now in the law Moses commanded us to stone such. What do you say about her?” 6 This they said to test him, that they might have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground. 7 And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” 8 And once more he bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground. 9 But when they heard it, they went away, one by one, beginning with the eldest, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him. 10 Jesus looked up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” 11 She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you; go, and do not sin again.”
