亞巴郎之子,達味之子耶穌基督的族譜:亞巴郎生依撒格,依撒格生雅各伯,雅各伯生猶大和他的兄弟們;猶大由塔瑪爾生培勒茲和則辣黑,培勒茲生赫茲龍,赫茲龍生阿蘭,阿蘭生阿米納達布,阿米納達布生納赫雄,納赫雄生撒耳孟,撒耳孟由辣哈布生波阿次,波阿次由盧德生敖貝得,敖貝得生葉瑟,葉瑟生達味王。達味由烏黎雅的妻子生撒羅滿,撒羅滿生勒哈貝罕,勒哈貝罕生阿彼雅,阿彼雅生阿撒,阿撒生約沙法特,約沙法特生約蘭,約蘭生烏齊雅,烏齊雅生約堂,約堂生阿哈次,阿哈次生希則克雅,希則克雅生默納舍,默納舍生阿孟,阿孟生約史雅,約史雅在巴比倫流徙期間生耶苛尼雅和他的兄弟們。流徙巴比倫以後,耶苛尼雅生沙耳提耳,沙耳提耳生則魯巴貝耳,則魯巴貝耳生阿彼烏得,阿彼烏得生厄里雅金,厄里雅金生阿左爾。阿左爾生匝多克,匝多克生阿歆,阿歆生厄里烏得,厄里烏得生厄肋阿匝爾,厄肋阿匝爾生瑪堂,瑪堂生雅各伯,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給若瑟後,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。」這一切事的發生,是為應驗上主藉先知所說的話:「看,一位貞女將懷孕生子,人將稱他的名字為厄瑪奴耳,意思是:天主與我們同在。」

(Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 1:1-16, 18-23

1 The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. 2 Abraham was the father of Isaac, and Isaac the father of Jacob, and Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers, 3 and Judah the father of Perez and Zerah by Tamar, and Perez the father of Hezron, and Hezron the father of Ram, 4 and Ram the father of Amminadab, and Amminadab the father of Nahshon, and Nahshon the father of Salmon, 5 and Salmon the father of Boaz by Rahab, and Boaz the father of Obed by Ruth, and Obed the father of Jesse, 6 and Jesse the father of David the king. And David was the father of Solomon by the wife of Uriah, 7 and Solomon the father of Rehoboam, and Rehoboam the father of Abijah, and Abijah the father of Asa, 8 and Asa the father of Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat the father of Joram, and Joram the father of Uzziah, 9 and Uzziah the father of Jotham, and Jotham the father of Ahaz, and Ahaz the father of Hezekiah, 10 and Hezekiah the father of Manasseh, and Manasseh the father of Amos, and Amos the father of Josiah, 11 and Josiah the father of Jechoniah and his brothers, at the time of the deportation to Babylon. 12 And after the deportation to Babylon: Jechoniah was the father of Shealtiel, and Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel, 13 and Zerubbabel the father of Abiud, and Abiud the father of Eliakim, and Eliakim the father of Azor, 14 and Azor the father of Zadok, and Zadok the father of Achim, and Achim the father of Eliud, 15 and Eliud the father of Eleazar, and Eleazar the father of Matthan, and Matthan the father of Jacob, 16 and Jacob 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.” 22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: 23 “Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and his name shall be called Emmanuel” (which means, God with us).

路6:39-42  (格前9:16-19, 22-27  詠84)

耶穌向門徒講比喻說:「瞎子豈能給瞎子領路?不是兩人都要跌在坑裡嗎?沒有徒弟勝過師傅的:凡受過完備教育的,僅相似自己的師傅而已。怎麼,你看見你兄弟眼中的木屑,而你眼中的大樑,倒不理會呢?你怎能對你的兄弟說:兄弟,讓我取出你眼中的木屑吧!而你竟看不見自己眼中的大樑呢?假善人啊!先取出你眼中的大樑,然後才看得清楚,以便取出你兄弟眼中的木屑。」

 

默 想

  • 如果我們多以同理心彼此看待,就不會要求兄弟取出他眼中的木屑,卻看不到自己眼中的大樑了。
  • 但同理心怎樣得來的呢?願意易地而處,體諒對方,明白對方的處境,以致看不到對方眼中的木屑,因為世界變得寬廣了。
  • 讓我們先反省自己眼中有否木樑,以致認清楚別人眼中是否真的有木屑?
