神父講道 – 預報救主降生 (節日) (週一) (2013年4月8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。

(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.

主日講道 – 救主慈悲禮儀 (復活期第二主日 ) (2013年4月7日)

恭讀聖若望福音 20:19-31

一周的第一天晚上,門徒所在的地方,因為怕猶太人,門戶都關著,耶穌來了,站在中間,對他們說:「願你們平安!」 說了這話,便把手和肋膀指給他們看。門徒見了主,便喜歡起來。
耶穌又對他們說:「願你們平安!就如父派遣了我,我也同樣派遣你們。」說了這話,就向他們噓了一口氣,說:「你們領受聖神吧!你們赦免誰的罪,誰的罪就得赦免;你們保留誰的罪,誰的罪就被保留。」
十二人中的一個,號稱狄狄摩的多默,當耶穌來時,卻沒有和他們在一起。其他門徒向他說:「我們看見了主。」
但多默對他們說:「除非我看見他手上的釘孔,用我的指頭,探入釘孔;用我的手,探入他的肋膀,我決不信。」
八天以後,耶穌的門徒又在屋裡,多默也和他們在一起。門戶關著,耶穌來了,站在中間,說:「願你們平安!」然後對多默說:「把你的指頭伸到這裡來,看看我的手吧!並伸過你的手來,探入我的肋膀,不要做無信德的人,但要做個有信德的人。」
多默回答說:「我主!我天主!」
耶穌對多默說:「因為你看見了我,才相信嗎?那些沒有看見而相信的,才是有福的!」
耶穌在門徒前,還行了許多其他神蹟,沒有記在這部書上。這些所記錄的,是為叫你們信耶穌是默西亞,天主子,並使你們信的人,賴他的名,獲得生命。

—上主的話。。

(2nd Sunday of Easter – Divine Mercy)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 20:19-31

19 On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 20 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. 21 Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.” 22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.” 24 Now Thomas, one of the twelve, called the Twin, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see in his hands the print of the nails, and place my finger in the mark of the nails, and place my hand in his side, I will not believe.” 26 Eight days later, his disciples were again in the house, and Thomas was with them. The doors were shut, but Jesus came and stood among them, and said, “Peace be with you.” 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side; do not be faithless, but believing.” 28 Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!” 29 Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.” 30 Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in his name.

路1:26-38   (讀經 ── 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

  • 踏入復活期第二週,我們再細讀聖母領報的經過,再次體會主基督的聖言成為血肉,是怎麼「神奇」的一回事。
  • 聖母瑪利亞親身經驗的時候,必定尚有很多個不明白,但她就這樣順服上主,領受自己是何等的滿有恩寵。
  • 不容易吧,換著你和我,怎能輕易辦到?只怕遭人恥笑,甚至有生命危險。未婚生子,在昔日社會,足夠被眾人亂石砸死。
  • 少女瑪利亞不是比大家特別勇敢,不畏懼;縱然面對很多的不明白,她仍靜心應變,默存心中,反覆思量。
  • 單單這一點,足夠讓我們效法,以默觀的態度,迎向一個又一個生命的關卡與挑戰。
