神父講道 – 主顯節前 (週四) (2013年1月3日)

恭讀聖若望福音 1:29-34

第二天,若翰見耶穌向他走來,便說:「看,天主的羔羊,除免世罪者!這位就是我論他曾說過:有一個人在我以後來,成了在我以前的,因他原先我而有。連我也不曾認識他,但為使他顯示於以色列,為此,我來以水施洗。」若翰又作證說:「我看見聖神彷彿鴿子從天降下,停在他身上。我也不曾認識他。但那派遣我來以水施洗的,給我說:『你看見聖神降下,停在誰身上,誰就是那要以聖神施洗的人。我看見了,我便作證:他就是天主子。』

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 1:29-34

29 The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! 30 This is he of whom I said, `After me comes a man who ranks before me, for he was before me.’ 31 I myself did not know him; but for this I came baptizing with water, that he might be revealed to Israel.” 32 And John bore witness, “I saw the Spirit descend as a dove from heaven, and it remained on him. 33 I myself did not know him; but he who sent me to baptize with water said to me, `He on whom you see the Spirit descend and remain, this is he who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.’ 34 And I have seen and have borne witness that this is the Son of God.”

若1:29-34   (讀經 ── 若一2:29-3:6   詠98)
第二天,若翰見耶穌向他走來,便說:「看,天主的羔羊,除免世罪者!這位就是我論他曾說過:有一個人在我以後來,成了在我以前的,因他原先我而有。連我也不曾認識他,但為使他顯示於以色列,為此,我來以水施洗。」若翰又作證說:「我看見聖神彷彿鴿子從天降下,停在他身上。我也不曾認識他。但那派遣我來以水施洗的,給我說:『你看見聖神降下,停在誰身上,誰就是那要以聖神施洗的人。我看見了,我便作證:他就是天主子。』

默 想

  • 洗者若翰認出了耶穌的身分,祂就是要來的那一位──默西亞、天主子。
  • 大家有否想過:耶穌不是無罪的嗎?為何耶穌也需要受洗?耶穌的受洗,相當於祂作為默西亞、拯救者的「就職禮」,讓人認出耶穌來,是天父的愛子。
  • 「天主子降生成人,使人成為天主之子。」一名教父曾這樣說。耶穌的到來,令我們眾人得以成為天主的子女。祂的聖言成為血肉,寄居在我們中間,重點在此。
  • 可曾想過,可曾相信,我們每一個其實都是天主鍾愛和寵幸的子女?我們每一個都有可能因著此愛,變得更有能力去愛,更幸福,一如滿有恩寵的聖母。

恭讀聖若望福音 1:19-28

這是若翰所作的見證:當猶太人從耶路撒冷派遣了司祭和肋未人,到他那裡問他說:「你是誰」他明明承認,並沒有否認,他明認說:「我不是默西亞。」他們問他說:「那麼你是誰?你是厄里亞嗎?」他說:「我不是。」「你是那位先知嗎?」他回答說:「不是。」於是他們問他說:「你究竟是誰?好叫我們給那派遣我們來的人一個答覆。你自己說你是誰?」他說:「我是在曠野裡呼喊者的聲音:修直上主的道路!正如依撒意亞先知所說的。」被派遣來的有些是法利塞人。他們又問他說:「你既不是默西亞,又不是厄里亞,又不是那位先知,那麼,你為什麼施洗呢?」若翰答覆他們說:「我以水施洗。你們中間站著一位,是你們不認識的;他在我以後來,我卻當不起解他的鞋帶。」這些事發生於約旦河對岸的伯達尼,若翰施洗的地方。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 1:19-28

19 And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?” 20 He confessed, he did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Christ.” 21 And they asked him, “What then? Are you Elijah?” He said, “I am not.” “Are you the prophet?” And he answered, “No.” 22 They said to him then, “Who are you? Let us have an answer for those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?” 23 He said, “I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, `Make straight the way of the Lord,’ as the prophet Isaiah said.” 24 Now they had been sent from the Pharisees. 25 They asked him, “Then why are you baptizing, if you are neither the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the prophet?” 26 John answered them, “I baptize with water; but among you stands one whom you do not know, 27 even he who comes after me, the thong of whose sandal I am not worthy to untie.” 28 This took place in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing.
