若7:1-2, 10, 25-30 (智2:1, 12-22 詠34)

近了,耶穌的弟兄們上去過節以後,他也去了,但不是明顯的,而是暗中去的。
於是,有幾個耶路撒冷人說:「這不是人們所要圖謀殺害的人嗎?看,他放膽地講論,而沒有人對他說什麼,難道首長們也確認這人就是默西亞嗎?可是,我們知道這人是那裡的;然而,當默西亞來時,卻沒有人知道他是那裡的。」於是耶穌在聖殿施教時,大聲喊說:「你們認識我,也知道我是那裡的;但我不是由我自己而來,而是那真實者派遣我來的,你們卻不認識他;我認識他,因為我是出於他,是他派遣了我。」他們想捉住他,但沒有人向他下手,因為他的時辰還沒有到。

默 想

  • 若望中的耶穌,正正就是清清楚楚、明明白白地,向大家展現自己:「我是你們等待的默西亞。」
  • 對我們而言,耶穌是默西亞,即祂是救世主,究竟代表什麼?這含有什麼意義?
  • 如果我們真能夠視祂為我們個人的默西亞,是否帶來期待之中的改變?祂將如何介入我們的生命之中?
  • 耶穌曾明言自己正是那要來的一位,我們信祂的人,對祂的認識又有多少?

神父講道 – 聖若瑟 (聖母淨配) (節日) (週四) (2015年3月19日)

聖若瑟 (聖母淨配) (節日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 1:16,18-21,24

雅各伯生若瑟,瑪利亞的丈夫,瑪利亞生耶穌,他稱為基督。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,她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,有意暗暗地休退她。當他在思慮這事時,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,因為那在她內受生的,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。」若瑟從睡夢中醒來,就照上主的天使所囑咐的辦了。

恭讀聖路加福音 2:41-51

耶穌的父母每年逾越節往耶路撒冷去。他到了十二歲時,他們又照節日的慣例上去了。過完了節日,他們回去的時候,孩童耶穌卻留在耶路撒冷,他的父母並未發覺。他們只以為他在同行的人中間,遂走了一天的路程;以後,就在親戚和相識的人中尋找他。既找不著,便折回耶路撒冷找他。過了三天,才在聖殿裏找到了他。他正坐在經師中,聆聽他們,也詢問他們。凡聽見他的人,對他的智慧和對答,都驚奇不止。他們一看見他,便大為驚異,他的母親就向他說:「孩子,為什麼你這樣對待我們?看,你的父親和我,一直痛苦的找你。」耶穌對他們說:「你們為什麼尋找我?你們不知道我必須在我父親那裏嗎?」但是,他們不明白他對他們所說的話。他就同他們下去,來到納匝肋,屬他們管轄。

(Solemnity of Saint Joseph, husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 1:16, 18-21, 24

16 Jacob was the father of Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom Jesus was born, who is called Christ. 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.” 24 When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him; he took his wife

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 2:41-51

41 Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the Passover. 42 And when he was twelve years old, they went up according to custom; 43 and when the feast was ended, as they were returning, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem. His parents did not know it, 44 but supposing him to be in the company they went a day’s journey, and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintances; 45 and when they did not find him, they returned to Jerusalem, seeking him. 46 After three days they found him in the temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions; 47 and all who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers. 48 And when they saw him they were astonished; and his mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us so? Behold, your father and I have been looking for you anxiously.” 49 And he said to them, “How is it that you sought me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?” 50 And they did not understand the saying which he spoke to them. 51 And he went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them; and his mother kept all these things in her heart.
