每日聖言靜思 主受洗節 1月12日

信仰生活互動坊、塔冷通心靈書舍

讀經一   依42:1-4,6-7  詠:149
讀經二     宗10:34-38
主日福音 瑪3:13-17

耶穌由加里肋亞,來到約但河、若翰那裡,為受若翰的洗;但若翰想要阻止他,說:「我本來需要受你的洗,而你卻來就我嗎?」耶穌回答他說:「你暫且容許吧!因為我們應當這樣,以完成全義。」於是若翰就容許了耶穌。耶穌受洗後,隨即從水裡上來,忽然,天為他開了。耶穌看見天主聖神,有如鴿子降下,來到他上面;又有聲音由天上說:「這是我的愛子,我所喜悅的。」

默 想

  • 耶穌那人性的一面與我們無異,只是他沒有犯罪。那麼,為何耶穌也要受洗?
  • 耶穌的受洗儼如默西亞的「就職禮」,當有聲音明認耶穌是天父的愛子,是天父所喜悅的那一刻,給耶穌一個默西亞身分的肯定。
  • 從耶穌的受洗,也想及我們自己的受洗,從此,自己是否屬於天主?
  • 我們或會擁有多個角色或身分,但我們屬於天主,這份從屬性,促使我們更清晰自己的人生路向和定位。在基本抉擇的方向前,只要有這份清晰度,我們將更有力量走向天主。

(Feast of the Baptism of the Lord)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 3:13-17

13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John, to be baptized by him. 14 John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” 15 But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now; for thus it is fitting for us to fulfil all righteousness.” Then he consented. 16 And when Jesus was baptized, he went up immediately from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and alighting on him; 17 and lo, a voice from heaven, saying, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”

神父講道 – 主顯節後 (週六) (2014年1月11日)

恭讀聖若望福音 3:22-30

那時候,耶穌和門徒來到猶太地,同他們一起住在那裏施洗。那時若翰也在臨近撒林的艾農施洗,因為那裏水多,人們常來受洗。那時,若翰尚未被投在監裏。若翰的門徒和一個猶太人,關於取潔禮發生了爭辯。他們便來到若翰前對他說:「辣彼!曾同你一起在約旦河對岸,你給他作證的那位,看,他也施洗;並且眾人都到他那裏去了。」若翰回答說:「人不能領受什麼,除非有天上的賞賜。你們自己可以給我作證,我曾說過:我不是默西亞,我只是被派遣作他前軀的。有新娘的是新郎;新郎的朋友,侍立靜聽,一聽得新郎的聲音,就非常喜樂:我的喜樂已滿足了。他應該興盛,我卻應該衰微。」

—上主的話。

(After Epiphany – Saturday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 3:22-30

22 After this Jesus and his disciples went into the land of Judea; there he remained with them and baptized. 23 John also was baptizing at Ae’non near Salim, because there was much water there; and people came and were baptized. 24 For John had not yet been put in prison. 25 Now a discussion arose between John’s disciples and a Jew over purifying. 26 And they came to John, and said to him, “Rabbi, he who was with you beyond the Jordan, to whom you bore witness, here he is, baptizing, and all are going to him.” 27 John answered, “No one can receive anything except what is given him from heaven. 28 You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but I have been sent before him. 29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom; the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly at the bridegroom’s voice; therefore this joy of mine is now full. 30 He must increase, but I must decrease.”
