神父講道 – 耶穌聖誕節 (節日) 子夜彌撒 (週三) (2013年12月25日)

恭讀聖路加福音 2:1-14

那時凱撒奧古斯都,出了一道上諭,叫天下的人都要登記:這是季黎諾作敘利亞總督時,初次行的登記。於是,眾人各去本城登記。
若瑟因為是達味家族的人,也從加里肋亞納匝肋城,上猶大名叫白冷的達味城去,好同自己已懷孕的聘妻瑪利亞去登記。
他們在那裡的時候,瑪利亞分娩的日期滿了,便生了她的頭胎男兒,用襁褓裹起,放在馬槽裡,因為在客棧中,為他們沒有地方。
在那地區,有些牧羊人露宿守夜,看守羊群。有上主的一位天使,站在他們身邊;上主的榮光,照射著他們;他們便非常害怕。天使向他們說:「不要害怕!看!我給你們報告一個為全民族的大喜訊:今天在達味城中,為你們誕生了一位救世者;他是主默西亞。這是給你們的記號:你們將要看見一個嬰兒,裹著襁褓,躺在馬槽裡。」忽然有一大隊天軍,同那天使一起,讚頌天主說:
「天主在天受光榮,主愛的人在世享平安!」

—上主的話。

(Solemnity of the Nativity of the Lord “Christmas”)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 2:1-14

1 In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be enrolled. 2 This was the first enrollment, when Quirin’i-us was governor of Syria. 3 And all went to be enrolled, each to his own city.4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, 5 to be enrolled with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. 6 And while they were there, the time came for her to be delivered. 7 And she gave birth to her first-born son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.
8 And in that region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with fear. 10 And the angel said to them, “Be not afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all the people; 11 for to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a babe wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, 14 “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with whom he is pleased!”

路2:1-14  (讀經 ── 依9:1-6  詠96  鐸2:11-14)

那時凱撒奧古斯都,出了一道上諭,叫天下的人都要登記:這是季黎諾作敘利亞總督時,初次行的登記。於是,眾人各去本城登記。若瑟因為是達味家族的人,也從加里肋亞納匝肋城,上猶大名叫白冷的達味城去,好同自己已懷孕的聘妻瑪利亞去登記。
他們在那裡的時候,瑪利亞分娩的日期滿了,便生了她的頭胎男兒,用襁褓裹起,放在馬槽裡,因為在客棧中,為他們沒有地方。在那地區,有些牧羊人露宿守夜,看守羊群。有上主的一位天使,站在他們身邊;上主的榮光,照射著他們;他們便非常害怕。天使向他們說:「不要害怕!看!我給你們報告一個為全民族的大喜訊:今天在達味城中,為你們誕生了一位救世者;他是主默西亞。這是給你們的記號:你們將要看見一個嬰兒,裹著襁褓,躺在馬槽裡。」忽然有一大隊天軍,同那天使一起,讚頌天主說:「天主在天受光榮,主愛的人在世享平安!」

 

默 想

  • 回想第一個的聖誕,聖子降生的那個晚上,是何等的一片寧靜,縱然我們也知道,聖家曾經歷狼狽的時候,為尋找安頓的地方而折騰。
  • 「天主在天受光榮,主愛的人在世享平安。」讓我們靜下心來,進入內在世界,聆聽一下那裡的平靜安穩,那平安是上主給予的,也是屬於祂的。
  • 在釋經上,可以這樣理解:耶穌來到世間,但世間不為他預備地方。我們的心靈可有空間給耶穌?被耶穌所充滿,其實是何等幸福的事,只是這需要一份內在的經驗,若從來沒有,就從未領略這份幸福感了。

神父講道 – 將臨期第四週 (週二) (2013年12月24日)

恭讀聖路加福音 1:67-79

若翰的父親匝加利亞充滿了聖神,遂預言說:「上主,以色列的天主應受讚美,因他眷顧救贖了自己的民族,並在自己的僕人達味家中,為我們興起了大能的救主。正如他藉歷代諸聖先知的口所說過的,拯救我們脫離敵人和仇恨我們者的手。他向我們的祖先施行仁慈,記憶起他自己的神聖盟約,就是他向我們的祖先亞巴郎所宣述的誓詞,恩賜我們從敵人手中被救出以後,無怨無懼,一生一世在他的面前,以聖善和正義事奉他。至於你,小孩,你要稱為至高者的先知,因你要走在上主前面,為他預備道路,為使他的百姓認識救恩,以獲得他們罪惡的寬宥:這是出於我們天主的慈懷,使旭日由高天向我們照耀,為光照那坐在黑暗和死影中的人,並引我們的腳步,走向和平的道路。」

—上主的話。

(4th Week of Advent – Tuesday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 1:67-79

67 And his father Zechari’ah was filled with the Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying, 68 “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for he has visited and redeemed his people, 69 and has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David, 70 as he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets from of old, 71 that we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all who hate us; 72 to perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant, 73 the oath which he swore to our father Abraham, 74 to grant us that we, being delivered from the hand of our enemies, might serve him without fear, 75 in holiness and righteousness before him all the days of our life. 76 And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High; for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways, 77 to give knowledge of salvation to his people in the forgiveness of their sins, 78 through the tender mercy of our God, when the day shall dawn upon us from on high 79 to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.
