恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 16:9-15

一週的第一天。清早,耶穌復活後,首先顯現給瑪利亞瑪達肋納:耶穌曾從她身上逐出過七個魔鬼。她去報告那些一向同耶穌在一起的人,那時,他們正在哀號哭涕。他們聽說耶穌復活了,並顯現給她,他們卻不相信。此後,他們中有兩個人往鄉下去;走路的時候,耶穌藉了另一個形狀顯現給他們。他們就去報告其餘的人,但那些人對他們也不相信。最後,當他們十一人坐席的時候,耶穌顯現給他們,責斥他們的無信和心硬,因為他們不信那些在他由死者中復活後,見了他的人。然後耶穌對他們說:「你們往普天下去,向一切受造的宣傳福音。」

—基督的福音。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 16:9-15

9 Now when he rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons. 10 She went and told those who had been with him, as they mourned and wept. 11 But when they heard that he was alive and had been seen by her, they would not believe it. 12 After this he appeared in another form to two of them, as they were walking into the country. 13 And they went back and told the rest, but they did not believe them. 14 Afterward he appeared to the eleven themselves as they sat at table; and he upbraided them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who saw him after he had risen. 15 And he said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

谷16:9-15    (讀經 ── 宗4:13-21   詠118)
一週的第一天。清早,耶穌復活後,首先顯現給瑪利亞瑪達肋納:耶穌曾從她身上逐出過七個魔鬼。她去報告那些一向同耶穌在一起的人,那時,他們正在哀號哭涕。他們聽說耶穌復活了,並顯現給她,他們卻不相信。
此後,他們中有兩個人往鄉下去;走路的時候,耶穌藉了另一個形狀顯現給他們。他們就去報告其餘的人,但那些人對他們也不相信。
最後,當他們十一人坐席的時候,耶穌顯現給他們,責斥他們的無信和心硬,因為他們不信那些在他由死者中復活後,見了他的人。然後耶穌對他們說:「你們往普天下去,向一切受造的宣傳福音。」

默 想

  • 事實上,耶穌多次顯現後,不代表所有宗徒一瞬間都相信不疑。因此,耶穌遂責斥他們的無信和心硬。
  • 去相信,去接納,需要一顆依靠的心,以及信德。這明顯是一個信仰上的逾越。拒絕相信的門徒,他們要見到才相信,但見得到就不是信仰了,一如多默。
  • 不過無論如何,耶穌依然恩待祂的門徒,並差遣他們重大的使命,將祂的事蹟廣傳,凡有氣息的,都將福音帶給他。
  • 單靠人的能力,我們不能百分百相信基督的事蹟,我們都容易跌進小信的陷阱。即使如此,我們都要為主作見證,以行動展開福傳。
  • 我們沒有不福傳的藉口。越肯去福傳,我們將越加增長對基督的信德和依賴。
