玫瑰聖母 (紀念)
恭讀聖路加福音 1:26-38
到了第六個月,天使加俾額爾奉天主差遣,往加里肋亞的城去,到一位童貞女那裏;她已與達味家族中的一個名叫若瑟的男子訂了婚,童貞女的名字叫瑪利亞。天使進去向她說:「萬福!充滿恩寵者,上主與你同在!」【在女人中你是蒙祝福的。】她卻因這話驚徨不安,便思慮這樣的請安有什麼意思。天使對她說:「瑪利亞,不要害怕,因為你在天主前獲得了寵幸。看,你將懷孕坐子,並要給他起名叫耶穌。他將是偉大的,並被稱為至高者的兒子,上主天主要把他祖先達味的御座賜給他。他要為王統治雅各伯家,直到永遠;他的王權沒有終結。」瑪利亞便向天使說:「這事怎能成就?因為我不認識男人。」天使答覆她說:「聖神要臨於你,至高者的能力要庇蔭你,因此,那要誕生的聖者,將稱為天主的兒子。且看,你的親戚依撒伯爾,她雖在老年,卻懷了男胎,本月已六個月了,她原是素稱不生育約,因為在天主前沒有不能的事。」瑪利亞說:「看!上主的婢女,願照你的話成就於我吧!」天使便離開她去了。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 1:26-38

In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a town of Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin’s name was Mary. And coming to her, he said, “Hail, favored one! The Lord is with you.” But she was greatly troubled at what was said and pondered what sort of greeting this might be. Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. Behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name him Jesus. He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give him the throne of David his father, and he will rule over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.” But Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I have no relations with a man?” And the angel said to her in reply, “The holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. Therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God. And behold, Elizabeth, your relative, has also conceived a son in her old age, and this is the sixth month for her who was called barren; for nothing will be impossible for God.” Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.” Then the angel departed from her.

路11:15-26 (其他經文──迦3:7-14    詠111)
人群中有人說:「耶穌是仗賴魔王貝耳則步驅魔。」另一些人試探耶穌,向他要求一個自天而來的徵兆。
耶穌知道了他們的心意,便對他們說:「凡是一國自相紛爭,必成廢墟,一家一家的敗落。如果撒殫自相紛爭,他的國如何能存立呢?因為你們說我仗賴貝耳則步驅魔。如果我仗賴貝耳則步驅魔,你們的子弟是仗賴誰驅魔呢?為此,他們將是你們的裁判者。如果我是仗賴天主的手驅魔,那麼,天主的國已來到你們中間了。幾時壯士佩帶武器,看守自己的宅舍,他的財產,必能安全。但是,如果有個比他更強的人來戰勝他,必會把他所依賴的一切武器收集的,就是分散。
「邪魔從人身上出去後,走遍乾旱之地,尋找一個安息之所,卻沒有找著;他於是說:我要回到我出來的那屋裡去。他來到後,見裡面已打掃清潔,裝飾整齊,就去帶了另外七個比自己更惡的魔鬼來,進去,住在那裡;那人後來的處境,就比先前的更壞了。」

默 想

  • 耶穌要我們怎樣做呢?怎樣才能防止惡魔再來呢?
  • 重點可能是,「在一切之上,你要謹守你的心,因為生命是由此而生。」(箴言4:23)
  • 但是,要謹守心,對人類來說是一件困難的事。因為人掌握不到心。只有靠天主的力量,我們才能進入最深深處。這過程就是通過黑夜才能達成。
