神父講道 – 將臨期第四週 (週三) (2010年12月22日)

恭讀聖路加福音 1:46-56
瑪利亞遂說:「我的靈魂頌揚上主,我的心神歡躍於天主,我的救主,因為他垂顧了他婢女的卑微;今後萬世萬代都要稱我有福;因為全能在我身上行了大事,他的名字是聖的,他的仁慈世世代代於無窮世,賜與敬畏他的人。他伸出了手臂施展大能,驅散那些心高氣傲的人。他從高座上推下權勢者,卻舉揚了卑微貧困的人。他曾使饑餓者飽饗美物,反使那富有者空手而去。他曾回憶起自己的仁慈,扶助了他的僕人以色列;正如他向我們的祖先所說過的恩許,施恩於亞巴郎和他的子孫,直到永遠。」瑪利亞同依撒伯爾住了三個月左右,就回本家去了。
—基督的福音。

(4th Week of Advent – Wednesday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 1:46-56

46 And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord, 47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, 48 for he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden. For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed; 49 for he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name. 50 And his mercy is on those who fear him from generation to generation. 51 He has shown strength with his arm, he has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts, 52 he has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted those of low degree; 53 he has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent empty away. 54 He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy, 55 as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his posterity for ever.” 56 And Mary remained with her about three months, and returned to her home.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

路1:46-56   (其他經文──撒上1:24-28 詠:  撒上2)
瑪利亞遂說:「我的靈魂頌揚上主,我的心神歡躍於天主,我的救主,因為他垂顧了他婢女的卑微;今後萬世萬代都要稱我有福;因為全能在我身上行了大事,他的名字是聖的,他的仁慈世世代代於無窮世,賜與敬畏他的人。他伸出了手臂施展大能,驅散那些心高氣傲的人。他從高座上推下權勢者,卻舉揚了卑微貧困的人。他曾使饑餓者飽饗美物,反使那富有者空手而去。他曾回憶起自己的仁慈,扶助了他的僕人以色列;正如他向我們的祖先所說過的恩許,施恩於亞巴郎和他的子孫,直到永遠。」瑪利亞同依撒伯爾住了三個月左右,就回本家去了。

默 想

  • 可以想像,在唱著這首讚主曲之時,已忘記了自己,忘記自己的境況,包括因為未婚生子被人指指點點等等……,她一心專注地頌揚上主。
  • 瑪利亞也變得更謙遜、信服,甚至更加無所畏懼。
  • 有否這類經驗?當自己聚焦別人,以致上主時,自己變得不那麼重要,那份喜悅會溢於心中,幸福無比。
