神父講道 – 天主之母 (節日) (週六) (2011年1月1日)

天主之母 (節日)
恭讀聖路加福音 2:16-21
那時候,牧羊人急忙去了,找到了瑪利亞和若瑟,及那躺在馬槽中的嬰兒。他們看見以後,就把天使對他們所說有關這小孩的事,傳揚開了;凡聽見的人,都驚訝牧羊人向他們所說的事。瑪利亞卻把這一切事,默存在自己心中,反覆思想。牧羊人為了他們所聽見和看見的一切,正如天使向他們所說的一樣,就光榮讚美天主,回去了。滿了八天,孩子應受割損,遂給祂起名叫耶穌;這是祂降孕母胎前,由天使所起的。
—基督的福音。

(Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 2:16-21

16 And they went with haste, and found Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. 17 And when they saw it they made known the saying which had been told them concerning this child; 18 and all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. 19 But Mary kept all these things, pondering them in her heart. 20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them. 21 And at the end of eight days, when he was circumcised, he was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before he was conceived in the womb.

路2:16-21  (其他經文──戶6:22-27   詠67   迦4:4-7)
牧羊人急忙去了,找到了瑪利亞和若瑟,及那躺在馬槽中的嬰兒。他們看見以後,就把天使對他們所說有關這小孩的事,傳揚開了;凡聽見的人,都驚訝牧羊人向他們所說的事。
瑪利亞卻把這一切事,默存在自己心中,反覆思想。
牧羊人回去;為了他們所聽見和看見的一切,正如天使向他們所說的一樣,就光榮讚美天主。
滿了八天,孩子應受割損,於是給他起名叫耶穌;這是他降孕母胎前,由天使所起的。

默 想

  • 瑪利亞很多時都把事情默存心中,反覆思想。
  • 什麼叫做反覆思想?就是不斷地想,讓上主的想法介入,直到上主給她安慰及啟示為止。
  • 聖母的一生可說是命苦,但她卻沒有任何埋怨,全都是靠「默存心中,反覆思想」這一招。
  • 若我們願意學效聖母,面對苦難也反覆思想,願意讓上主介入,最後我們便可得到上主的安慰。

神父講道 – 聖誕八日慶期第七日及除夕感恩祭 (週五) (2010年12月31日)

聖思維一世(西爾物斯德肋)教宗
恭讀聖若望福音 1:1-18
在起初已有聖言:聖言與天主同在,聖言就是天主。聖言在起初就與天主同在。萬物是藉著他而造成的。凡受造的,沒有一樣不是由他而造成的。在他內有生命,這生命是人的光。光在黑暗中照耀,黑暗決不能勝過它。
曾有一人,是由天主派遣來的,名叫若翰。這人來,是為作證,為給光作證,為使眾人藉他而信。他不是那光,而是為給那光作證。
那普照每人的真光,正在進入世界;他已在世界上,世界原是藉他造成的;但世界卻不認識他。他來到了自己的領域,自己的人卻沒有接受他。但是,凡接受他的,他給他們,即給那些信他名字的人權能,好成為天主的子女。他們不是由血氣,也不是由肉慾,也不是由男慾,而是由天主生的。於是,聖這成了血肉,寄居在我們中間;我們見了他的光榮,正如父獨生者的光榮,滿溢恩寵和真理。若翰為他作證呼喊說:「這就是我所說的,那在我以後來的,成了在我以前的,因他原先我而有。」從他的滿盈中,我們都領受了恩寵,而且恩寵上加恩寵。因為法律是藉梅瑟傳授的,恩寵和真理卻是由耶穌基督而來的。從來沒有人見過天主,只有那在父懷裡的獨生子,身為天主的,他給我們詳述了。
—基督的福音。

(The Seventh Day in the Octave of Christmas & New Year Eve Thanksgiving Mass- Friday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 1:1-18

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God; 3 all things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came for testimony, to bear witness to the light, that all might believe through him. 8 He was not the light, but came to bear witness to the light. 9 The true light that enlightens every man was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world knew him not. 11 He came to his own home, and his own people received him not. 12 But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God; 13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father. 15 (John bore witness to him, and cried, “This was he of whom I said, `He who comes after me ranks before me, for he was before me.'”) 16 And from his fulness have we all received, grace upon grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has ever seen God; the only Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he has made him known.

若1:1-18 (其他經文──若一2:18-21 詠96)
在起初已有聖言:聖言與天主同在,聖言就是天主。聖言在起初就與天主同在。萬物是藉著他而造成的。凡受造的,沒有一樣不是由他而造成的。在他內有生命,這生命是人的光。光在黑暗中照耀,黑暗決不能勝過它。
  曾有一人,是由天主派遣來的,名叫若翰。這人來,是為作證,為給光作證,為使眾人藉他而信。他不是那光,而是為給那光作證。
  那普照每人的真光,正在進入世界;他已在世界上,世界原是藉他造成的;但世界卻不認識他。他來到了自己的領域,自己的人卻沒有接受他。但是,凡接受他的,他給他們,即給那些信他名字的人權能,好成為天主的子女。他們不是由血氣,也不是由肉慾,也不是由男慾,而是由天主生的。
  於是,聖這成了血肉,寄居在我們中間;我們見了他的光榮,正如父獨生者的光榮,滿溢恩寵和真理。若翰為他作證呼喊說:「這就是我所說的,那在我以後來的,成了在我以前的,因他原先我而有。」從他的滿盈中,我們都領受了恩寵,而且恩寵上加恩寵。因為法律是藉梅瑟傳授的,恩寵和真理卻是由耶穌基督而來的。從來沒有人見過天主,只有那在父懷裡的獨生子,身為天主的,他給我們詳述了。

默 想

  • 從來沒有人見過天主,只有那在父懷裡的獨生子,身為天主的,他給我們詳述了。
  • 這就是耶穌降世的最主要目的:給我們述說天主,以致我們可以像祂一樣,成為天主之子。
  • 耶穌不單給我們述說天主,更且把天主的特質表達出來,行動出來,希望我們能成全,像天父一樣地成全。
  • 這就是耶穌的目的,也是我們基督徒的終向。

神父講道 – 聖誕八日慶期第六日 (週四) (2010年12月30日)

恭讀聖路加福音 2:36-40
又有一位女先知亞納,是阿協爾支派法奴耳的女兒,已上了年紀。她出閣後,與丈夫同居了七年,以後就守寡,直到八十四歲。她齋戒祈禱,晝夜事奉天主,總不離開聖殿。正在那時刻,她也前來稱讚天主,並向一切希望耶路撒冷得救贖的人,講論嬰孩耶穌。
耶穌的父母他們按著上主的法律,行完了一切,便返回了加里肋亞,他們的本城納匝肋。孩子漸漸長大而強壯,充滿智慧,天主的恩寵常在他身上。
—基督的福音。

(The Sixth Day in the Octave of Christmas – Thursday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 2:36-40

36 And there was a prophetess, Anna, the daughter of Phan’u-el, of the tribe of Asher; she was of a great age, having lived with her husband seven years from her virginity, 37 and as a widow till she was eighty-four. She did not depart from the temple, worshiping with fasting and prayer night and day. 38 And coming up at that very hour she gave thanks to God, and spoke of him to all who were looking for the redemption of Jerusalem. 39 And when they had performed everything according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city, Nazareth. 40 And the child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom; and the favor of God was upon him.

路2:36-40 (其他經文──若一2:12-17  詠96)
又有一位女先知亞納,是阿協爾支派法奴耳的女兒,已上了年紀。她出閣後,與丈夫同居了七年,以後就守寡,直到八十四歲。她齋戒祈禱,晝夜事奉天主,總不離開聖殿。正在那時刻,她也前來稱讚天主,並向一切希望耶路撒冷得救贖的人,講論嬰孩耶穌。
  耶穌的父母他們按著上主的法律,行完了一切,便返回了加里肋亞,他們的本城納匝肋。孩子漸漸長大而強壯,充滿智慧,天主的恩寵常在他身上。

默 想

  • 路加和瑪竇的描述,兩個只能有一個是對的。瑪竇說耶穌一出生便逃難往埃及;路加則說耶穌第八天行了割損及獻於聖殿後,便返回加里肋亞。
  • 由此證明,每位作者都有自己想述說的「神學思想」。所以,最近坊間有一本書名為《製造耶穌》,原因就是在此。
  • 那麼,我們能否找到耶穌的真相呢?可以的,很多專家就幫助我們做了這些功夫。
  • 最重要的,沒有任何這些值得信賴的專家,做出的研究顯示耶穌是騙子。相反的是,這些專家的研究令更多沒有信仰的人更敬佩耶穌,實行祂的教導。

神父講道 – 聖誕八日慶期第五日 (週三) (2010年12月29日)

聖多默.白凱主教殉道
恭讀聖路加福音 2:22-35
按梅瑟的法律,一滿了他們取潔的日期,瑪利亞和若瑟抱便帶著孩子上耶路撒冷去獻給上主,就如上主的法律上所記載的:「凡開始首生的男性,應祝聖於上主。」並該照上主法律上所吩咐的,獻上祭物:一對斑鳩或兩隻雛鴿。那時,在耶路撒冷有一個人,名叫西默盎。這人正義虔誠,期待著以色列的安慰,而且聖神也在他身上。他曾蒙聖神啟示:自己在未看見上主的受傅者以前,決見不到死亡。他因聖神的感動,進了聖殿;那時,抱著嬰孩耶穌的父母正進來,要按著法律的慣例為他行禮。西默盎就雙臂接過他來,讚美天主說:「主啊!現在可照你的話,放你的僕人平安去了!因為我親眼看見了你的救援,即你在萬民之前早預備好的:為作啟示異邦的光明,你百姓以色列的榮耀。」
他的父親和母親就驚異他關於耶穌所說的這些話。西默盎祝福了他們,又向他的母親瑪利亞說:「看,這孩子已被立定,為使以色列中許多人跌倒和復起,並成為反對的記號——至於你,要有一把利劍刺透你的心靈——為叫許多人心中的思念顯露出來。」
—基督的福音。

(The Fifth Day in the Octave of Christmas – Wednesday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 2:22-35

22 And when the time came for their purification according to the law of Moses, they brought him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord 23 (as it is written in the law of the Lord, “Every male that opens the womb shall be called holy to the Lord”) 24 and to offer a sacrifice according to what is said in the law of the Lord, “a pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.” 25 Now there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon, and this man was righteous and devout, looking for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. 26 And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he should not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. 27 And inspired by the Spirit he came into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him according to the custom of the law, 28 he took him up in his arms and blessed God and said, 29 “Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word; 30 for mine eyes have seen thy salvation 31 which thou hast prepared in the presence of all peoples, 32 a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to thy people Israel.” 33 And his father and his mother marveled at what was said about him; 34 and Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, “Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign that is spoken against 35 (and a sword will pierce through your own soul also), that thoughts out of many hearts may be revealed.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.
