主日講道 – 聖誕節 子夜感恩祭 (2011年12月25日)

恭讀聖路加福音2:1-14

那時凱撒奧古斯都,出了一道上諭,叫天下的人都要登記:這是在季黎諾作敘利亞總督時,初次行的登記。於是,眾人各去本城登記。若瑟因為是達味家族的人,也從加里肋亞納匝肋城,上猶大名叫白冷的達味城去,好同自己已懷孕的聘妻瑪利亞去登記。他們在那裡的時候,她分娩的日期滿了,便生了她的頭胎男兒,用襁褓裹起,放在馬槽裡,因為在客棧中,為他們沒有地方。在那地區,有些牧羊人露宿,守夜看守羊群。有上主的一位天使,站在他們身邊,上主的榮光,照射著他們,他們便非常害怕。天使向他們說:「不要害怕!看!我給你們報告一個為全民族的大喜訊:今天在達味城中,為你們誕生了一位救世者,祂是主默西亞。這是給你們的記號:你們將要看見一個嬰兒,裹著襁褓,躺在馬槽裡。」忽然有一大隊天軍,同那天使一起,讚頌天主說:「天主受享光榮於高天,主愛的人在世享平安!」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 2:1-14

1 In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be enrolled. 2 This was the first enrollment, when Quirin’i-us was governor of Syria. 3 And all went to be enrolled, each to his own city.4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, 5 to be enrolled with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. 6 And while they were there, the time came for her to be delivered. 7 And she gave birth to her first-born son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.
8 And in that region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with fear. 10 And the angel said to them, “Be not afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all the people; 11 for to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a babe wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, 14 “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with whom he is pleased!”

每日聖言靜思 聖誕節 12月25日

信仰生活互動坊、塔冷通心靈書舍

讀經一 依52:7-10   詠98
讀經二 希1:1-6
主日福音  若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,黑暗決勝不過他。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,只是為給那光作證。那照亮每人的真光,正在進入這世界;他已在世界上,世界原是藉他造成的;但世界卻不認識他。他來到了自己的地方,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。他們不是由精血,也不是由肉慾,也不是由男慾,而是由天主生的。於是,聖言成了血肉,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者,身為天主的,他給我們詳述了。

默 想

  • 這是聖誕節主日其中一段福音,取自若望福音。聖史若望撰寫福音時,已年逾八十,距離耶穌被釘十架超越七十載,即使這樣,對這名耶穌疼愛的宗徒,師傅的一點一滴,仍然如斯深刻。
  • 歷經數十年,若望宗徒的信仰重新被建立、萌芽、生根,他深切體會基督是什麼的一位真人真天主,他看到基督是世界的光、生命、牧者,基督也是聖言。
  • 對你而言,耶穌基督除了是光明、生命、牧者、聖言……,還是誰?祂是你的摯友嗎?兄長嗎?導師嗎?拯救嗎?……
