神父講道 – 聖誕八日慶期第七日 (週六) (2011年12月31日)

恭恭讀聖若望福音 1:1-18

在起初已有聖言:聖言與天主同在,聖言就是天主。聖言在起初就與天主同在。萬物是藉著他而造成的。凡受造的,沒有一樣不是由他而造成的。在他內有生命,這生命是人的光。光在黑暗中照耀,黑暗決不能勝過它。
曾有一人,是由天主派遣來的,名叫若翰。這人來,是為作證,為給光作證,為使眾人藉他而信。他不是那光,而是為給那光作證。
那普照每人的真光,正在進入世界;他已在世界上,世界原是藉他造成的;但世界卻不認識他。他來到了自己的領域,自己的人卻沒有接受他。但是,凡接受他的,他給他們,即給那些信他名字的人權能,好成為天主的子女。他們不是由血氣,也不是由肉慾,也不是由男慾,而是由天主生的。於是,聖這成了血肉,寄居在我們中間;我們見了他的光榮,正如父獨生者的光榮,滿溢恩寵和真理。若翰為他作證呼喊說:「這就是我所說的,那在我以後來的,成了在我以前的,因他原先我而有。」從他的滿盈中,我們都領受了恩寵,而且恩寵上加恩寵。因為法律是藉梅瑟傳授的,恩寵和真理卻是由耶穌基督而來的。從來沒有人見過天主,只有那在父懷裡的獨生子,身為天主的,他給我們詳述了。

(The Seventh Day in the Octave of Christmas)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 1:1-18

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God; 3 all things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came for testimony, to bear witness to the light, that all might believe through him. 8 He was not the light, but came to bear witness to the light. 9 The true light that enlightens every man was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world knew him not. 11 He came to his own home, and his own people received him not. 12 But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God; 13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father. 15 (John bore witness to him, and cried, “This was he of whom I said, `He who comes after me ranks before me, for he was before me.'”) 16 And from his fulness have we all received, grace upon grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has ever seen God; the only Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he has made him known.

若1:1-18 (讀經──若一2:18-21 詠96)
在起初已有聖言:聖言與天主同在,聖言就是天主。聖言在起初就與天主同在。萬物是藉著他而造成的。凡受造的,沒有一樣不是由他而造成的。在他內有生命,這生命是人的光。光在黑暗中照耀,黑暗決不能勝過它。
曾有一人,是由天主派遣來的,名叫若翰。這人來,是為作證,為給光作證,為使眾人藉他而信。他不是那光,而是為給那光作證。
那普照每人的真光,正在進入世界;他已在世界上,世界原是藉他造成的;但世界卻不認識他。他來到了自己的領域,自己的人卻沒有接受他。但是,凡接受他的,他給他們,即給那些信他名字的人權能,好成為天主的子女。他們不是由血氣,也不是由肉慾,也不是由男慾,而是由天主生的。
於是,聖言成了血肉,寄居在我們中間;我們見了他的光榮,正如父獨生者的光榮,滿溢恩寵和真理。若翰為他作證呼喊說:「這就是我所說的,那在我以後來的,成了在我以前的,因他原先我而有。」從他的滿盈中,我們都領受了恩寵,而且恩寵上加恩寵。因為法律是藉梅瑟傳授的,恩寵和真理卻是由耶穌基督而來的。從來沒有人見過天主,只有那在父懷裡的獨生子,身為天主的,他給我們詳述了。

默 想

  • 若耶穌基督真如光明照進我們內心,我們又準備好,容讓祂的光進入,我們必會體會祂的臨在。
  • 只是很多時我們的確被自己內心的黑暗所困,以致接納不到真光。我們沒有向天主求救的習慣。
  • 有時我們或會問:天主在哪?天主在聖堂中,天主在大自然中,天主在空氣中,天主在我們困苦時,天主在我們喜樂時,天主在我們心裡。
  • 從來沒有人見過天主,只有那在父懷裡的獨生子,身為天主的,他給我們詳述了。
  • 基督在我們心內,仍然活著,時時刻刻。

 

神父講道 – 聖家節 (週五) (2011年12月30日)

恭讀聖路加福音 2:41-52

每年逾越節耶穌的父母往耶路撒冷去。衪到了十二歲時,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,衪的父母並未發覺。他們只以為衪在同行的人中間,遂走了一天的路程;以後就在親戚和相識的人中尋找衪。既找不著,便折回耶路撒冷找衪。過了三天,才在聖殿裏找到了衪。衪正坐在經師中,聆聽他們,也詢問他們。凡聽見衪的人,對衪的智慧和對答,都驚奇不止。他們一看見衪,便大為驚異,衪的母親就向衪說:「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:「你們為什麼找我? 你們不知道我必須在我父親那裡嗎?」但是,他們不明白衪對他們所說的話。衪就同他們下去,來到納匝肋,屬他們管轄。衪的母親把一切默存在心中。耶穌在智慧和身量上,並在天主和人前的恩愛上,漸漸地增長。

(Feast of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 2:41-52

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. 52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature, and in favor with God and man.
