Resurrection of the Dead

在這篇福音中,撒杜塞人向耶穌提出這個疑問,是由於他們不相信死者會復活,所以故意質問耶穌,以為能為難祂。 可是耶穌身為天主子,早知道天主的救世計劃,所以這問題對祂毫無難度,反而給祂機會令撒杜塞人和經師們聽得啞口無言,從此再不敢質問祂什麼。 生活在現時短暫的生命中,人會死亡,所以必須也娶也嫁,生兒育女,以延續生命;耶穌稱這為「今世之子」。當人復活後,因天主的恩寵而獲得永生,便與本來的生命完全不同,因我們已與天主在一起,能享永恆的福樂,不用再面對死亡,不再嫁娶;耶穌稱這為「復活之子,也就是天主之子」。 撒杜塞人啞口無言,因為他們相信梅瑟五經,而耶穌正正用當中的經文反駁他們。我們相信人會復活,卻是因為基督的復活。「基督從死者中實在復活了,做了死者的初果。因為死亡既因一人而來,死者的復活也因一人而來;就如在亞當內,眾人都死了,照樣在基督內,眾人都要復活…」(格前15:20-22) 「那信天主子的,在自己內就懷有這證據;那不信天主的,就是以天主為撒謊者,因為他不信天主為自己的子所作的證。這證據就是天主將永遠的生命賜給了我們,而這生命是在自己的子內。那有子的,就有生命;那沒有天主子的,就沒有生命。」(若一 5:10-12) 你相信復活嗎?你現在的生活,有反映這個信念嗎? 這篇默想由生命恩泉文摘編輯小組撰寫,內容以下列文章為根據: Commentaries on the daily readings by Sacred Space, 常年期第三十三週星期六. In this gospel passage, the Sadducees questioned Jesus about resurrection because they don’t believe in the resurrection of the dead, and therefore they thought this could pose a challenge for Jesus. However, knowing the salvation plan of His […]

Perseverance and Eternal Life

常年期第三十二主日丙年讀經 今天的舊約讀經,第二個兄弟和第四個兄弟的見證是非常震撼與強烈的。第二個兄弟的話直接令我們聯想起耶穌山中聖訓真福八端的其中一端:「幾時人為了我而辱罵迫害你們…你們是有福的。」第四個兄弟深信死者會復活而更加堅定地宣揚:「我們深信天主使人復活的許諾,所以死在人手中,是求之不得的」。今天的聖詠是一個被寃枉的人的哀嘆;一方面道出追隨天主的堅定意志,另一方面又表達將要與天主重會的信心。第二篇讀經是聖保祿宗徒一番鼓勵的說話,亦是一篇祈禱,祈求天父賜予力量及信德給信徒做他們的工作。在福音中,耶穌根據撒杜塞人的立場反駁他們,引述梅瑟五書來證實死者復活的信念。 其實,在我們日常生活中,往往都會遇到很多困難、考驗和挑戰。從一個在世的平信徒的角度來看,這些源源不絕的苦惱對我們身心構成莫大的影響之餘,更令我們的信德動搖,甚至質疑天主是否真的存在 。 但是在今天的讀經裡耶穌很清楚地告訴我們:現世生活和死亡不是終結,而是一道門檻;跨過這門檻,就可以進入超越現世生活的新生命。基督藉着衪的聖死和復活,為我們賺得新生命,開啟了天堂之門,而天堂便是永受祝福的人所處之地 。 聖保祿宗徒也提醒我們只要我們「完成各種聖善言行」,建立好愛主愛人的關係,慈愛的天父亦會恩賜我們「永恆的安慰和美好的希望」。願我們能緊記這一點,一同行走基督的光明之路,邁向天國。 這篇默想是以 Foundations and Faith program 為根據,並獲得版權持有人 RCL Benziger, LLC 批准使用。 Reading – Thirty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time (Liturgical Year C) In today’s Old Testament reading, the second and fourth brothers’ testimonies were very powerful and earth-shattering.
