神父講道 – 諸聖嬰孩 (慶日) (週六) (2013年12月28日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 2:13-18

賢士們離去後,看,上主的天使托夢顯於若瑟說:「起來,帶著嬰孩和他的母親逃往埃及去,住在那裏,直到我再通知你,因為黑落德即將尋找這嬰孩,要把他殺掉。」若瑟便起來,星夜帶了嬰孩和他的母親,退避到埃及去了。留在那裏,直到黑落德死去。這就應驗了上主藉先知所說的話:「我從埃及召回了我的兒子。」
那時,黑落德見自己受了賢士們的愚弄,就大發忿怒,依照他由賢士們所探得的時期,差人將白冷及其周圍境內所有兩歲及兩歲以下的嬰兒殺死,於是應驗了耶肋米亞先知所說的話:「在辣瑪聽到了聲音,痛哭哀號不止;辣黑耳痛哭她的子女,不願受人的安慰,因為他們不在了。」

—上主的話。

(Feast of the Holy Innocents, martyrs)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 2:13-18

13 Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Rise, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there till I tell you; for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.” 14 And he rose and took the child and his mother by night, and departed to Egypt, 15 and remained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfil what the Lord had spoken by the prophet, “Out of Egypt have I called my son.” 16 Then Herod, when he saw that he had been tricked by the wise men, was in a furious rage, and he sent and killed all the male children in Bethlehem and in all that region who were two years old or under, according to the time which he had ascertained from the wise men. 17 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by the prophet Jeremiah: 18 “A voice was heard in Ramah, wailing and loud lamentation, Rachel weeping for her children; she refused to be consoled, because they were no more.”

瑪2:13-18  (讀經 ── 若一1:5-2:2  詠124)

賢士們離去後,看,上主的天使托夢顯於若瑟說:「起來,帶著嬰孩和他的母親逃往埃及去,住在那裡,直到我再通知你,因為黑落德即將尋找這嬰孩,要把他殺掉。」若瑟便起來,星夜帶了嬰孩和他的母親,退避到埃及去了。留在那裡,直到黑落德死去。這就應驗了上主藉先知所說的話:「我從埃及召回了我的兒子。」
那時,黑落德見自己受了賢士們的愚弄,就大發忿怒,依照他由賢士們所探得的時期,差人將白冷及其周圍境內所有兩歲及兩歲以下的嬰兒殺死,於是應驗了耶肋米亞先知所說的話:「在辣瑪聽到了聲音,痛哭哀號不止;辣黑耳痛哭她的子女,不願受人的安慰,因為他們不在了。」

 

默 想

  • 聖家繼續他們狼狽地逃命的生涯,他們在活現人生的寫照。
  • 聖史瑪竇筆下,耶穌曾逃命到埃及,然後從那裡被召回,在神學上,這裡強調耶穌基督將要經歷逾越奧蹟,耶穌基督是新梅瑟。
  • 基督要逾越,也帶我們經過逾越,跨過痛苦,準備受苦,經驗祂的愛,在祂內更新生命。
  • 原來,信仰是要我們度過人生的關卡的,這些關卡也是我們生命中的十字架。
  • 祂曾跨過,我們也有能力跨過,如果你真的相信。

聖若望 (宗徒、聖史) (慶日)

恭讀聖若望福音 20:2-8

一週的第一天,瑪利亞瑪達肋納跑去見西滿伯多祿和耶穌所愛的那另一個門徒,對他們說:「有人從墳墓中把主搬走了,我們不知道他們把他放在那裏了。」伯多祿便和那另一個門徒出來,往墳墓那裏去了。兩人一起跑,但那另一個門徒比伯多祿跑得快,先來到了墳墓那裏。他俯身看見了放著的殮布,卻沒有進去。隨著他的西滿伯多祿也來到了,進了墳墓,看見了放著的殮布,也看見耶穌頭上的那塊汗巾,不同殮布放在一起,而另在一處捲著。那時,先來到墳墓的那個門徒,也進去了,一看見就相信了。

—上主的話。

(Feast of Saint John, Apostle and Evangelist)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 20:2-8

Now on the first day of the week 2 [Mary Magdelan] ran, and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him.” 3 Peter then came out with the other disciple, and they went toward the tomb. 4 They both ran, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first; 5 and stooping to look in, he saw the linen cloths lying there, but he did not go in. 6 Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb; he saw the linen cloths lying, 7 and the napkin, which had been on his head, not lying with the linen cloths but rolled up in a place by itself. 8 Then the other disciple, who reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believed;
