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.

—The Gospel of the Lord.

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。
