神父講道 – 將臨期第四週 (週一) (2013年12月23日)

恭讀聖路加福音 1:57-66

依撒伯爾滿了產期,就生了一個兒子。她的鄰居和親戚聽說上主向她大施仁慈,都和她一同歡樂。到了第八天,人們來給這孩子行割損禮,並願意照他父親的名字叫他匝加利亞。他的母親說:「不,要叫他若翰。」他們就向她說:「在你親族中沒有叫這個名字的。」他們便向他的父親打手勢,看他願叫他什麼。他要了一塊小板,寫道:「若翰是他的名字。」眾人都驚訝起來。匝加利亞的口和舌頭立時開了,遂開口讚美天主。於是,所有的鄰居都滿懷怕情;這一切事就傳遍了全猶大山區,凡聽見的人都將這事存在心中,說:「這孩子將成為什麼人物啊?」因為上主的手與他同在。

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 1:57-66

57 Now the time came for Elizabeth to be delivered, and she gave birth to a son. 58 And her neighbors and kinsfolk heard that the Lord had shown great mercy to her, and they rejoiced with her. 59 And on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child; and they would have named him Zechari’ah after his father, 60 but his mother said, “Not so; he shall be called John.” 61 And they said to her, “None of your kindred is called by this name.” 62 And they made signs to his father, inquiring what he would have him called. 63 And he asked for a writing tablet, and wrote, “His name is John.” And they all marveled. 64 And immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue loosed, and he spoke, blessing God. 65 And fear came on all their neighbors. And all these things were talked about through all the hill country of Judea; 66 and all who heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, “What then will this child be?” For the hand of the Lord was with him.

路1:57-66  (讀經 ── 拉3:1-4, 23-24  詠25)

依撒伯爾滿了產期,就生了一個兒子。她的鄰居和親戚聽說上主向她大施仁慈,都和她一同歡樂。到了第八天,人們來給這孩子行割損禮,並願意照他父親的名字叫他匝加利亞。他的母親說:「不,要叫他若翰。」他們就向她說:「在你親族中沒有叫這個名字的。」他們便向他的父親打手勢,看他願叫他什麼。他要了一塊小板,寫道:「若翰是他的名字。」眾人都驚訝起來。匝加利亞的口和舌頭立時開了,遂開口讚美天主。於是,所有的鄰居都滿懷怕情;這一切事就傳遍了全猶大山區,凡聽見的人都將這事存在心中,說:「這孩子將成為什麼人物啊?」因為上主的手與他同在。

 

默 想

  • 這是洗者若翰出生時的情況。他的生命光芒似乎已照進各人的內心,縱然他們也帶著一點點的畏懼,因為這是一件不尋常的事。
  • 從若翰的名字,與他親族沿用的名字有別,已表示他生命那不一樣的召叫。
  • 他的父母也將這召喚附以相應的回應。他們一家以一生的時間,準備與迎接耶穌基督的來臨。
  • 我們準備好未?為基督來到我的心中。

主日講道 – 將臨期第四主日 (2013年12月22日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 1:18-24

耶穌基督的誕生是這樣的:他的母親瑪利亞,許配於若瑟後,在同居前,因聖神有孕的事,已顯示出來。她的丈夫若瑟,因是義人,不願公開羞辱她,有意暗暗休退她。
當若瑟在思慮這事時,看,在夢中,上主的天使顯現給他,說:「達味之子若瑟,不要怕,娶你的妻子瑪利亞,因為在她內受生的,是出於聖神。她要生一個兒子;你要給他起名叫耶穌,因為他要把自己的民族,由他們的罪惡中拯救出來。」
這一切事的發生,是為應驗上主藉先知所說的話:「有一位貞女,將懷孕生子,人將稱他的名字為厄瑪奴耳,意思是:天主與我們同在。」
若瑟從夢中醒來,就照上主的天使所囑咐的去做,娶了他的妻子。

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 1:18-24

18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child of the Holy Spirit; 19 and her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. 20 But as he considered this, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit; 21 she will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” 22 All this took place to fulfil what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: 23 “Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and his name shall be called Emmanuel” (which means, God with us). 24 When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him; he took his wife
