預報救主降生 (節日)
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﹐往加里肋亞一座名叫納匝肋的城去﹐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。】她卻因這話驚惶不安﹐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﹐你將懷孕生子﹐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﹐至高者的能力要庇廕你﹐因此﹐那要誕生的聖者﹐將稱為天主的兒子。且看﹐你的親戚依撤伯爾﹐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﹐ 願照妳的話成就於我吧﹗”天使便離開她去了。

(Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord)

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

26 In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, 27 to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. 28 And he came to her and said, “Hail, O favored one, the Lord is with you!” 29 But she was greatly troubled at the saying, and considered in her mind what sort of greeting this might be. 30 And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. 32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there will be no end.” 34 And Mary said to the angel, “How shall this be, since I have no husband?” 35 And the angel said to her, “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. 36 And behold, your kinswoman Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son; and this is the sixth month with her who was called barren. 37 For with God nothing will be impossible.”38 And Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.

路1:26-38 (其他經文──依7:10-14;8:10   詠40   希10:4-10)
到了第六個月,天使加俾額爾奉天主差遣,往加里肋亞一座名叫納匝肋的城去,到一位童貞女那裡,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。】她卻因這話驚惶不安,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,你將懷孕生子,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,她原是素稱不生育的,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。

默 想

  • 相比起童貞懷孕,聖母願意以她的聖德接受這重大的使命,是更令人驚嘆的奇蹟。
  • 今天社會,大家都趕著要求利益,不願意犧牲,聖母的芳表為我們有很大的啟示。為何不願為理想、為正義、為信仰而犧牲呢?
  • 聖母是在耶穌宣講山中聖訓、真福八端前,把這天國大憲章實踐出來,會不會耶穌在小時候就受到她的教導呢?
  • 我們若是真的尊敬聖母,就要學效她實踐山中聖訓、真福八端,這比朝聖更令聖母高興啊!
