神父講道 – 聖母蒙召升天節 (節日) (週六) (2015年8月15日)

恭讀聖路加福音 1:39-56

瑪利亞就在那幾日起身,急速往山區去,到了猶大的一座城。她進入匝加利亞的家,就向依撒伯爾請安。
依撒伯爾一聽到瑪利亞請安,胎兒就在她腹中歡躍。依撒伯爾於是充滿了聖神,高聲說:
「在女人中,你是蒙祝福的,你的胎兒,也是蒙祝福的。我主的母親,駕臨我這裡,這是我那裡得來的呢?看,你請安的聲音,一入我耳,胎兒就在我腹中,歡喜踴躍。那信了由上主傳於她的話必要完成的,是有福的。」
瑪利亞於是說:
「我的靈魂頌揚上主,我的心神歡躍於天主,我的救主,因為他垂顧了她婢女的卑微,今後萬世萬代都要稱我有福;因全能者在我身上,行了大事,他的名字是聖的,他的仁慈世世代代於無窮世,賜與敬畏他的人。
「他伸出了手臂,施展大能,驅散那些心高氣傲的人。他從高座上,推下權勢者,卻舉揚了卑微貧困的人。他曾使飢餓者,飽饗美物,反使那富有者,空手而去。
「他曾回憶起自己的仁慈,扶助了他的僕人以色列,正如他向我們祖先所說過的恩許,施恩於亞巴郎和他的子孫,直到永遠。」
瑪利亞同依撒伯爾,住了三個月左右,就回家去了。

(Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 1:39-56

39 In those days Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country, to a city of Judah, 40 and she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. 41 And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit 42 and she exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! 43 And why is this granted me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 For behold, when the voice of your greeting came to my ears, the babe in my womb leaped for joy. 45 And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.”
46 And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord, 47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, 48 for he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden. For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed; 49 for he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name. 50 And his mercy is on those who fear him from generation to generation. 51 He has shown strength with his arm, he has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts, 52 he has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted those of low degree; 53 he has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent empty away. 54 He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy, 55 as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his posterity for ever.” 56 And Mary remained with her about three months, and returned to her home.

路1:39-56  (默11:19;12:1-6, 10  詠45  格前15:20-27 ) (聖母蒙召升天)

默 想

  • 瑪利亞在詠唱這首讚主曲的時候,正處於艱難重重之時,試想,一位童貞女突然懷有身孕,必遭人指指點點,甚至有生命危險,但她就是仍然滿心讚美,歡躍於她的救主天主。
  • 窺探瑪利亞的內在世界,是怎樣的一種滿有恩寵的狀況!
  • 有靈修學家形容瑪利亞是偉大的默觀者,她經驗到自己滿全的內在世界,有上主臨到她身上的景況。
  • 我們也嘗試多覺察自己此刻的內在景況,對身邊的人與事,有多少的能力心存感激,對生命保持讚嘆!
  • 聖母一生經歷的痛苦與波折非常不簡單,她窮一生去實踐讚主曲的內涵。我們每一個都可以效法她。
