聖猶思定 (殉道) (紀念)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 11:27-33

那時候,耶穌和他的門徒來到耶路撒冷。當耶穌在殿裏徘徊時,司祭長、經師和長老來到他跟前,對他說:「你憑什麼權柄作這些事?或者,是誰給了你權柄作這些事?」耶穌對他們說:「我也要問你們一句話,你們回答我,我就告訴你們:我憑什麼權柄作這事。若翰的洗禮是從天上來的,還是從人來的?答覆我吧!」他們心中思量說:「若我們說:是從天上來的,他就要說:那麼你們為什麼不信他?但我們怎敢說:是從人來的呢?」——他們是害怕民眾,因為眾人都以若翰實在是一位先知。他們便回答耶穌說:「我們不知道。」耶穌也對他們說:「我也不告訴你們:我憑什麼權柄作這些事。」

(Memorial of Saint Justin, Martyr)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 11:27-33

27 And they came again to Jerusalem. And as he was walking in the temple, the chief priests and the scribes and the elders came to him, 28 and they said to him, “By what authority are you doing these things, or who gave you this authority to do them?” 29 Jesus said to them, “I will ask you a question; answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. 30 Was the baptism of John from heaven or from men? Answer me.” 31 And they argued with one another, “If we say, `From heaven,’ he will say, `Why then did you not believe him?’ 32 But shall we say, `From men’?” — they were afraid of the people, for all held that John was a real prophet. 33 So they answered Jesus, “We do not know.” And Jesus said to them, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things.”

谷11:27-33   (讀經 ── 德51:17-27   詠19)
耶穌和他的門徒來到耶路撒冷。當耶穌在殿裡徘徊時,司祭長、經師和長老來到他跟前,對他說:「你憑什麼權柄作這些事?或者,是誰給了你權柄作這些事?」耶穌對他們說:「我也要問你們一句話,你們回答我,我就告訴你們:我憑什麼權柄作這事。若翰的洗禮是從天上來的,還是從人來的?答覆我吧!」他們心中思量說:「若我們說:是從天上來的,他就要說:那麼你們為什麼不信他?但我們怎敢說:是從人來的呢?」——他們是害怕民眾,因為眾人都以若翰實在是一位先知。他們便回答耶穌說:「我們不知道。」耶穌也對他們說:「我也不告訴你們:我憑什麼權柄作這些事。」

默 想

  • 耶穌有智慧,這是不用懷疑的。
  • 但大家有沒有經驗過,有些時候,你自己也有神來之筆,發揮出不屬自己的智慧?
  • 我們常常有講座,會經驗到,有時自己所說的,好像超乎水準一樣,這時,我們就覺得,這能力或許就是聖經所形容的聖神的能力。
  • 但要學習給聖神內住,卻是艱難的功課,最難就是學習放手!

神父講道 – 聖母訪親 (慶日) (週五) (2013年5月31日)

恭讀聖路加福音1:39-56

瑪利亞就在那幾日動身,急速往山區去,到了猶大的一座城。她進了匝加利亞的家,就給依撒伯爾請安。依撒伯爾一聽到瑪利亞請安,胎兒就在她的腹中歡躍。依撒伯爾遂充滿了聖神,大聲呼喊說:「在女人中你是蒙祝福的,你的胎兒也是蒙祝福的。我主的母親駕臨我這裏,這是我那裏得來的呢?看,你請安的聲音一入我耳,胎兒就在我腹中歡喜踴躍。那信了由上主傳於她的話必要完成的,是有福的。」瑪利亞遂說:「我的靈魂頌揚上主,我的心神歡躍於天主、我的救主。因為他垂顧了他婢女的卑微,今後萬世萬代都要稱我有福;因全能者在我身上行了大事,他的名字是聖的。他的仁慈世世代代於無窮世,賜與敬畏他的人。他伸出了手臂施展大能,驅散那些心高氣傲的人。他從高座上推下權勢者,卻舉揚了卑微貧困的人。他曾使饑餓者飽饗美物,反使那富有者空手而去。他曾回億起自己的仁慈:扶助了他的僕人以色列,正如他向我們的祖先所說過的恩許,施恩於亞巴郎和他的子孫,直到永遠。」瑪利亞同依撒伯爾住了三個月左右,就回本家去了。

(Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 1:39-56

39 In those days Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country, to a city of Judah, 40 and she entered the house of Zechari’ah and greeted Elizabeth. 41 And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit 42 and she exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! 43 And why is this granted me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 For behold, when the voice of your greeting came to my ears, the babe in my womb leaped for joy. 45 And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfilment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.” 46 And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord, 47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, 48 for he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden. For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed; 49 for he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name. 50 And his mercy is on those who fear him from generation to generation. 51 He has shown strength with his arm, he has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts, 52 he has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted those of low degree; 53 he has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent empty away. 54 He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy, 55 as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his posterity for ever.” 56 And Mary remained with her about three months, and returned to her home.

路1:39-56   (讀經 ── 索3:14-18 / 羅12:9-16   詠:依12:2-6)
瑪利亞就在那幾日動身,急速往山區去,到了猶大的一座城。她進了匝加利亞的家,就給依撒伯爾請安。依撒伯爾一聽到瑪利亞請安,胎兒就在她的腹中歡躍。依撒伯爾遂充滿了聖神,大聲呼喊說:「在女人中你是蒙祝福的,你的胎兒也是蒙祝福的。我主的母親駕臨我這裡,這是我那裡得來的呢?看,你請安的聲音一入我耳,胎兒就在我腹中歡喜踴躍。那信了由上主傳於她的話必要完成的,是有福的。」瑪利亞遂說:「我的靈魂頌揚上主,我的心神歡躍於天主、我的救主。因為他垂顧了他婢女的卑微,今後萬世萬代都要稱我有福;因全能者在我身上行了大事,他的名字是聖的。他的仁慈世世代代於無窮世,賜與敬畏他的人。他伸出了手臂施展大能,驅散那些心高氣傲的人。他從高座上推下權勢者,卻舉揚了卑微貧困的人。他曾使饑餓者飽饗美物,反使那富有者空手而去。他曾回億起自己的仁慈:扶助了他的僕人以色列,正如他向我們的祖先所說過的恩許,施恩於亞巴郎和他的子孫,直到永遠。」瑪利亞同依撒伯爾住了三個月左右,就回本家去了。

默 想

  • 「今後萬世萬代都要稱我有福。」聖母瑪利亞這樣說,並不是她自己有何威能,而是「因全能者在我身上行了大事」。
  • 聖母,是一個器皿,是一個願意順服天主的器皿。
  • 我們也是一樣,若是願意順服天主,祂便能在我們身上行大事。
  • 教會二千年來光輝的歷史,就是這樣組成的。

神父講道 – 常年期第八週 (週四) (2013年5月30日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 10:46-52

耶穌和他的門徒及一大群人,從耶里哥出來的時候,有一個瞎眼的乞丐,即提買的兒子巴爾提買坐在路旁。他一聽說是納匝肋人耶穌,就喊叫說:「耶穌,達味之子,可憐我吧!」許多人斥責他,叫他不要作聲。但他越發喊叫說:「達味之子,可憐我吧!」耶穌就站住說:「叫他過來!」人就叫那瞎子,給他說:「放心!起來!他叫你呢!」瞎子就扔下自己的外衣,跳起來,走到耶穌跟前。耶穌對他說:「你願意我給你做什麼?」瞎子說:「師傅!叫我看見!」耶穌對他說:「去吧!你的信德救了你。」瞎子立刻看見了,就在路上跟著耶穌去了。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 10:46-52

46 And they came to Jericho; and as he was leaving Jericho with his disciples and a great multitude, Bartimae’us, a blind beggar, the son of Timae’us, was sitting by the roadside. 47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” 48 And many rebuked him, telling him to be silent; but he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” 49 And Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” And they called the blind man, saying to him, “Take heart; rise, he is calling you.” 50 And throwing off his mantle he sprang up and came to Jesus. 51 And Jesus said to him, “What do you want me to do for you?” And the blind man said to him, “Master, let me receive my sight.” 52 And Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.” And immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way.

谷10:46-52   (讀經 ── 德42:15-26   詠33)

默 想

  • 耶穌在不少地方也說過,你的信德救了你!
  • 這句話今天是否仍行得通?可能有人會這樣想。但事實是,信德是所有基督徒生命的核心。
  • 耶穌在沒有信德的地方,也做不了什麼!
  • 我們有時很有愛德,但因為沒有信德,所以便只維持有愛德的心,卻做不出愛德的行動,背後的動力,就是信德!

神父講道 – 常年期第八週 (週三) (2013年5月29日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 10:32-45

那時,耶穌和門徒在路上,要上耶路撒冷去。耶穌走在門徒前頭走,他們都驚奇,跟隨的人也都害怕。耶穌又把那十二人帶到一邊,開始告訴他們那將要臨到他身上的事:「看,我們上耶路撒冷去,人子要被交於司祭長和經師;他們要定他的死罪,要把他交給外邦人;這些人要戲弄他,唾污他,鞭打他,殺害他;但三天以後,他必要復活。」
載伯德的兒子雅各伯和若望來到耶穌跟前,對他說:「師傅!我們願你允許我們的請求!」耶穌對他們說:「你們願意我給你們做什麼?」他們回答說:「賜我們在你的光榮中,一個坐在你右邊,一個坐在你左邊。」耶穌對他們說:「你們不知道你們所求的是什麼;你們能飲我飲的爵嗎?或者,你們能受我受的洗嗎?」他們對他說:「我們能。」耶穌就對他們說:「我飲的爵,你們必要飲;我受的洗,你們必要受;但坐在我右邊或左邊,不是我可以給的,而是給誰預備了,就給誰。」那十個聽了,就開始惱怒雅各伯和若望。耶穌叫門徒過來,對他們說:「你們知道,在外邦人中,有尊為首領的,主宰他們,有大臣管轄他們;但你們中間,卻不可這樣:誰若願意在你們中間成為大的,就當作你們的僕役;誰若願意在你們中間為首,就當作眾人的奴僕,因為人子,不是來受服侍,而是來服侍人,並交出自己的性命,為大眾作贖價。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 10:32-45

32 And they were on the road, going up to Jerusalem, and Jesus was walking ahead of them; and they were amazed, and those who followed were afraid. And taking the twelve again, he began to tell them what was to happen to him, 33 saying, “Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man will be delivered to the chief priests and the scribes, and they will condemn him to death, and deliver him to the Gentiles; 34 and they will mock him, and spit upon him, and scourge him, and kill him; and after three days he will rise.” 35 And James and John, the sons of Zeb’edee, came forward to him, and said to him, “Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you.” 36 And he said to them, “What do you want me to do for you?” 37 And they said to him, “Grant us to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your glory.” 38 But Jesus said to them, “You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or to be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?” 39 And they said to him, “We are able.” And Jesus said to them, “The cup that I drink you will drink; and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be baptized; 40 but to sit at my right hand or at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared.” 41 And when the ten heard it, they began to be indignant at James and John. 42 And Jesus called them to him and said to them, “You know that those who are supposed to rule over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great men exercise authority over them. 43 But it shall not be so among you; but whoever would be great among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. 45 For the Son of man also came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

默 想

  • 今時今日世界政治的大亂,原來在宗徒時已有——就是爭取權力!
  • 但耶穌否決了他們的行動。耶穌不單用口頭否決,也用行動否決——祂不建立在世的政權!
  • 耶穌要建立的是一個屬靈國度的政權,當每一個基督徒都實行耶穌的政綱,祂的戰役便勝利,祂的國度便要降臨。
  • 所以,我們都是基督的精兵(弟後2:3),我們願為祂作戰,而不是建立在世的權力嗎?
