護守天使 (紀念)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 18:1-5,10

那時候,門徒來到耶穌跟前說:「在天國裏究竟誰是最大的?」耶穌就叫一個小孩來,使他站在他們中間說:「我實在告訴你們:你們若不變成如同小孩一樣,你們決不能進入天國。所以,誰若自謙自卑如同這一個小孩,這人就是天國中最大的。無論誰因我的名字,收留一個這樣的小孩,就是收留我。你們小心,不要輕視這些小子中的一個,因為我告訴你們:他們的天使在天上,常見我在天之父的面。」

—上主的話。

(Memorial of the Holy Guardian Angels)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 18:1-5,10

The disciples approached Jesus and said, “Who is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven?” He called a child over, placed it in their midst, and said, “Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the Kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven. And whoever receives one child such as this in my name receives me.
“See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father.”

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 9:9-13

那時候,耶穌從葛法翁前行,看見一個人在稅關那裏坐著,名叫瑪竇,對他說:「跟隨我!」他就起來跟隨了耶穌。當耶穌在屋裏坐席時,有許多稅吏和罪人也來同耶穌和他的門徒一起坐席。法利塞人看見,就對他的門徒說:「你們的老師為什麼同稅吏和罪人一起進食呢?」耶穌聽見了,就說:「不是健康的人需要醫生,而是有病的人。你們去研究一下:『我喜歡仁愛勝過祭獻』,是什麼意思;我不是來召義人,而是來召罪人。」

(Feast of Saint Matthew, Apostle and evangelist)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 9:9-13

As Jesus passed by, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the customs post. He said to him, “Follow me.” And he got up and followed him. While he was at table in his house, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat with Jesus and his disciples. The Pharisees saw this and said to his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” He heard this and said, “Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do. Go and learn the meaning of the words, I desire mercy, not sacrifice. I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.”

恭讀聖路加福音 6:20-26

那時,耶穌舉目望著自己的門徒說:「你們貧窮的是有福的,因為天主的國是你們的。你們現今饑餓的是有福的,因為你們將得飽飫。你們現今哭泣的是有福的,因為你們將要歡笑。幾時為了人子的緣故,人惱恨你們,並棄絕你們,並且以你們的名字為可惡的,而加以辱罵詛咒,你們才是有福的。在那一天,你們歡喜踴躍吧!看,你們的賞報在天上是豐厚的,因為他們的祖先也同樣對待了先知。但是,你們富有的是有禍的,因為你們已經獲得了安慰。你們現今飽飫的是有禍的,因為你們將要饑餓。你們現今歡笑的是有禍的,因為你們將要哀慟哭泣。幾時眾人都誇讚你們,你們是有禍的,因為他們的祖先也同樣對待了假先知。」

(Memorial of Saint John Chrysostom, Bishop and Doctor of the Church)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 6:20-26

Raising his eyes toward his disciples Jesus said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for the Kingdom of God is yours. Blessed are you who are now hungry, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who are now weeping, for you will laugh. Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude and insult you, and denounce your name as evil on account of the Son of Man.Rejoice and leap for joy on that day! Behold, your reward will be great in heaven. For their ancestors treated the prophets in the same way.But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation. But woe to you who are filled now, for you will be hungry. Woe to you who laugh now, for you will grieve and weep. Woe to you when all speak well of you, for their ancestors treated the false prophets in this way.”

神父講道 – 常年期第二十三週 (星期二) (2023年9月12日)

恭讀聖路加福音 6:12-19

那時,耶穌出去,上山祈禱;他徹夜向天主祈禱。天一亮,他把門徒叫來,由他們中揀選了十二人,並稱他們為宗徒:即西滿,耶穌又給他起名叫伯多祿,和他的兄弟安德肋、雅各伯、若望、斐理伯、巴爾多祿茂、瑪竇、多默、阿耳斐的兒子雅各伯、號稱「熱誠者」的西滿、雅各伯的兄弟猶達和猶達斯依斯加略,他成了負賣者。
耶穌同他們下山,站在一塊平地上。有他的一大群門徒和很多從猶太、耶路撒冷及提洛和漆冬海邊來的群眾,他們來是為聽他講道,並為治好自己的病症;那些被邪魔纏擾的人都被治好了。群眾都設法觸摸他,因為有一種能力從他身上出來,治好眾人。

(23rd Week in Ordinary Time – Tuesday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 6:12-19

Jesus departed to the mountain to pray, and he spent the night in prayer to God. When day came, he called his disciples to himself, and from them he chose Twelve, whom he also named Apostles: Simon, whom he named Peter, and his brother Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, Simon who was called a Zealot, and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.
And he came down with them and stood on a stretch of level ground. A great crowd of his disciples and a large number of the people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the coastal region of Tyre and Sidon came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases; and even those who were tormented by unclean spirits were cured. Everyone in the crowd sought to touch him because power came forth from him and healed them all.

恭讀聖路加福音 6:6-11

在一個安息日,耶穌進了會堂施教。在那裏有一個人,他的右手乾枯了。經師和法利塞人窺察他是否在安息日治病,好尋找藉口控告他。他看透了他們的心思,就對那枯了手的人說:「起來,站在中間!」他遂站了起來。耶穌對他們說:「我問你們:安息日是許行善呢?還是許作惡呢?是救命呢?還是喪命呢?」他環視眾人一週,就對那人說:「伸出你的手來!」那人照樣一做,他的手便復了原。他們狂怒填胸,彼此商議,要怎樣來對付耶穌。

(23rd Week in Ordinary Time – Monday)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 6:6-11

On a certain sabbath Jesus went into the synagogue and taught, and there was a man there whose right hand was withered. The scribes and the Pharisees watched him closely to see if he would cure on the sabbath so that they might discover a reason to accuse him. But he realized their intentions and said to the man with the withered hand, “Come up and stand before us.” And he rose and stood there. Then Jesus said to them, “I ask you, is it lawful to do good on the sabbath rather than to do evil, to save life rather than to destroy it?” Looking around at them all, he then said to him, “Stretch out your hand.” He did so and his hand was restored. But they became enraged and discussed together what they might do to Jesus.

(Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary)

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

The Book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
Abraham became the father of Isaac, Isaac the father of Jacob, Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers. Judah became the father of Perez and Zerah, whose mother was Tamar. Perez became the father of Hezron, Hezron the father of Ram, Ram the father of Amminadab. Amminadab became the father of Nahshon, Nahshon the father of Salmon, Salmon the father of Boaz, whose mother was Rahab. Boaz became the father of Obed, whose mother was Ruth. Obed became the father of Jesse, Jesse the father of David the king.
David became the father of Solomon, whose mother had been the wife of Uriah. Solomon became the father of Rehoboam, Rehoboam the father of Abijah, Abijah the father of Asaph. Asaph became the father of Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat the father of Joram, Joram the father of Uzziah. Uzziah became the father of Jotham, Jotham the father of Ahaz, Ahaz the father of Hezekiah. Hezekiah became the father of Manasseh, Manasseh the father of Amos, Amos the father of Josiah. Josiah became the father of Jechoniah and his brothers at the time of the Babylonian exile.
After the Babylonian exile, Jechoniah became the father of Shealtiel, Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel, Zerubbabel the father of Abiud. Abiud became the father of Eliakim, Eliakim the father of Azor, Azor the father of Zadok. Zadok became the father of Achim, Achim the father of Eliud, Eliud the father of Eleazar. Eleazar became the father of Matthan, Matthan the father of Jacob, Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary. Of her was born Jesus who is called the Christ.
Now this is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about. When his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found with child through the Holy Spirit. Joseph her husband, since he was a righteous man, yet unwilling to expose her to shame, decided to divorce her quietly. Such was his intention when, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home. For it is through the Holy Spirit that this child has been conceived in her. She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:
Behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel,
which means “God is with us.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.
