讀經一  撒上1:20-22, 24-28  詠:84
讀經二  若一3:1-2, 21-24
主日福音 路2:41-52

每年逾越節,耶穌的父母必往耶路撒冷去。耶穌到了十二歲,他們又照節日的慣例上去了。過完了節日,他們回去的時候,孩童耶穌卻留在耶路撒冷;他的父母並未發覺。他們只以為他在同行的人中間;走了一天的路程後,才在親戚和相識的人中尋找他。既找不著,便折回耶路撒冷找他。過了三天,就在聖殿裡找到了耶穌。他正坐在經師中,聆聽他們,也詢問他們。凡聽見他的人,對他的智慧和對答,都驚奇不
止。他的父母一看見他,便大為驚異。耶穌的母親就向耶穌說:「孩子,你為什麼這樣對待我們?看,你的父親和我,一直痛苦的找你。」耶穌對他們說:「你們為什麼找我?你們不知道:我必須在我父親那裡嗎?」但是,他們不明白耶穌對他們所說的話。耶穌就同他們下去,來到納匝肋,屬他們管轄。他的母親把這一切默存在心中。耶穌在智慧和身量上,並在天主和人的恩愛上,漸漸增長。

默 想

  • 可能有人會奇怪,瑪利亞怎樣做母親的?兒子一整天不見面也不發覺?如果今天香港的怪獸家長,見少半天也是不成的!
  • 原來耶穌的年代,是整個家族、整條村莊的人一起前往參與逾越節的,人數可能有幾百人。而小孩子們常是聚在一起玩耍,父母根本不用理會他們。
  • 父母只要給小孩子空間,小孩自然能夠健康成長,耶穌也是這樣成長起來。
  • 五六十年代的香港也是這樣,我們也是這樣成長過來,現在的小孩沒有這般幸福了。

主日講道 – 聖家節 (慶日) (2012年12月30日)

恭讀聖路加福音 2:41-52

每年逾越節,耶穌的父母必往耶路撒冷去。耶穌到了十二歲,他們又照節日的慣例上去了。過完了節日,他們回去的時候,孩童耶穌卻留在耶路撒冷;他的父母並未發覺。他們只以為他在同行的人中間;走了一天的路程後,才在親戚和相識的人中尋找他。既找不著,便折回耶路撒冷找他。
過了三天,就在聖殿裡找到了耶穌。他正坐在經師中,聆聽他們,也詢問他們。凡聽見他的人,對他的智慧和對答,都驚奇不止。他的父母一看見他,便大為驚異。
耶穌的母親就向耶穌說:「孩子,你為什麼這樣對待我們?看,你的父親和我,一直痛苦的找你。」
耶穌對他們說:「你們為什麼找我?你們不知道:我必須在我父親那裡嗎?」
但是,他們不明白耶穌對他們所說的話。
耶穌就同他們下去,來到納匝肋,屬他們管轄。他的母親把這一切默存在心中。
耶穌在智慧和身量上,並在天主和人的恩愛上,漸漸增長。

(Feast of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph )

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 2:41-52

41 Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the Passover. 42 And when he was twelve years old, they went up according to custom; 43 and when the feast was ended, as they were returning, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem. His parents did not know it, 44 but supposing him to be in the company they went a day’s journey, and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintances; 45 and when they did not find him, they returned to Jerusalem, seeking him. 46 After three days they found him in the temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions; 47 and all who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers. 48 And when they saw him they were astonished; and his mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us so? Behold, your father and I have been looking for you anxiously.” 49 And he said to them, “How is it that you sought me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?” 50 And they did not understand the saying which he spoke to them. 51 And he went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them; and his mother kept all these things in her heart. 52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature, and in favor with God and man.
