主日講道 – 將臨期第二主日 (2014年12月7日)

恭讀聖馬爾谷福音 1:1-8

天主子耶穌基督福音的開始,正如依撒意亞先知書上記載的:「看,我派遣我的使者在祢面前,預備祢的道路。曠野中有呼號者的聲音:你們當預備上主的道路,修直祂的途徑。」

此時,若翰出現在曠野裡施洗,並宣講悔改的洗禮,以赦免罪過。猶太全地和耶路撒冷的群眾都出來,到他那裡,承認自己的罪過,在約但河受他的洗。

若翰穿的是駱駝毛的衣服,腰間束的是皮帶,吃的是蝗蟲與野蜜。他宣告說:「那比我更有力量的,要在我以後來,我連俯身解祂的鞋帶也不配。我以水洗你們,祂卻要以聖神洗你們。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark 1:1-8

1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.2 As it is written in Isaiah the prophet, “Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way; 3 the voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight — ” 4 John the baptizer appeared in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. 5 And there went out to him all the country of Judea, and all the people of Jerusalem; and they were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins.  6 Now John was clothed with camel’s hair, and had a leather girdle around his waist, and ate locusts and wild honey. 7 And he preached, saying, “After me comes he who is mightier than I, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. 8 I have baptized you with water; but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

主日福音 谷 1:1-8

天主子耶穌基督福音的開始,正如依撒意亞先知書上記載的:「看,我派遣我的使者在你面前,預備你的道路。曠野中有呼號者的聲音:你們當預備上主的道路,修直他的途徑。」
此時,若翰出現在曠野裡施洗,並宣講悔改的洗禮,以赦免罪過。猶太全地和耶路撒冷的群眾都出來,到他那裡,承認自己的罪過,在約但河受他的洗。
若翰穿的是駱駝毛的衣服,腰間束的是皮帶,吃的是蝗蟲與野蜜。他宣告說:「那比我更有力量的,要在我以後來,我連俯身解他的鞋帶,也不配。我以水洗你們,他卻要以聖神洗你們。」

 

默 想

  • 若翰宣告說,我以水洗你們,他卻要以聖神洗你們。
  • 所以,今日我們所受的洗,是聖神的洗禮。當然,我們的眼睛是看不到的,神父便以看得見的水來讓我們明白。
  • 若我們的心眼也看得見,便會知道,所受的是聖神的洗,我們的生命是有一個印記的了。
  • 有這印記,我們的生命又怎可能依然故我?
