玫瑰聖母 (紀念)

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。】她卻因這話驚徨不安,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,你將懷孕坐子,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,願照你的話成就於我吧!」天使便離開她去了。

—上主的話。

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  (讀經 ── 宗1:12-14  詠:路1:46-55)

到了第六個月,天使加俾額爾奉天主差遣,往加里肋亞的城去,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,願照你的話成就於我吧!」天使便離開她去了。

 

默 想

  • 區樂民醫生早前解說了童貞生育,說這可能是很自然的事,只不過超越現今人類的理解,就如日蝕月蝕超越前人的理解,現今卻是天文學解說得通的事。
  • 我們個人的生命,時常有類似的疑問:為何天恩浩蕩,卻留下我苦杯獨飲?
  • 這可能是我們永世無法解答的問題,就讓我們學效聖母,當我們生命的難題是一個「童貞懷孕」的現象。
  • 我們可以學聖母說:願照你的話成就於我吧!

主日講道 – 常年期第二十七主日 (2013年10月6日)

恭讀聖路加福音 17:5-10

那時候,宗徒向主說:「請增加我們的信德吧!」
主說:「如果你們有信德,像芥子那樣大,即使你們給這棵桑樹說:你連根拔出,移植到海中去!它也會服從你們。
「你們中間,誰有僕人耕田或放羊,從田裡回來,即給他說:你快過來,坐下吃飯吧!而不對他說:給我預備晚飯,束上腰,伺候我,等我吃喝完了,以後你才吃喝?僕人做了吩咐的事,主人豈要向他道謝?
「你們也是這樣,既做完吩咐你們的一切,仍然要說:我們是無用的僕人,我們不過做了我們應做的事。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 17:5-10

5 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” 6 And the Lord said,”If you had faith as a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this sycamine tree, `Be rooted up, and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you. 7 “Will any one of you, who has a servant plowing or keeping sheep, say to him when he has come in from the field, `Come at once and sit down at table’? 8 Will he not rather say to him, `Prepare supper for me, and gird yourself and serve me, till I eat and drink; and afterward you shall eat and drink’? 9 Does he thank the servant because he did what was commanded? 10 So you also, when you have done all that is commanded you, say, `We are unworthy servants; we have only done what was our duty.'”

—The Gospel of the Lord.
