They may all be one

若望福音 17:11-19

耶穌在今天福音所作大司祭的祈禱,完全反映了祂愛門徒到了一個完全忘卻自我的地步。他向天父祈求,「使他們合而為一」,也求祂「保護他們脫免邪惡」,這是祂在離開以前最掛心的。讓我們謹記,分裂是耶穌最不願意見到的。

耶穌也求天父以真理祝聖追隨祂的人。的確,真理是門徒們所擁有的唯一權柄,不是武器、法律、權勢。讓我們常在真理中合一。

John 17:11-19

In today’s gospel, Jesus prayed His prayer as a High Priest. His prayer reveals how much He loves His disciples, to a point where He completely forgets about Himself. He prayed to His Father that “they may be one”, and to “keep them from the Evil One”. This is what He was most concerned about before leaving them. Let us remember, division is not something that Jesus wants to see.

Jesus also asked His Father to “consecrate them in the truth”. Indeed, the truth is what empowers the disciples, neither weapons, nor law, nor power. Let us unite ourselves in the truth.
