默主哥耶:講道- 聖若翰洗者誕辰 (主日) (2018年6月24日)

恭讀聖路加福音 1:57-66,80

依撒伯爾滿了產期,就生了一個兒子。她的鄰居和親戚聽說上主向她大施仁慈,都和她一同歡樂。到了第八天,人們來給這孩子行割損禮,並願意照他父親的名字叫他匝加利亞。他的母親說:「不,要叫他若翰。」他們就同她說:「在你親族中沒有叫這個名字的。」他們便給他的父親打手勢,看他願意叫他什麼。他要了一塊小板,寫道:「若翰是他的名字。」眾人都驚訝起來。匝加利亞的口和舌頭立時開了,遂開口讚美天主。於是,所有的鄰居都滿懷敬畏之情;這一切事就傳遍了全猶大山區,凡聽見的人都將這事存在心中,說:「這孩子將成為什麼人物啊?」因為上主的手與他同在。這小孩漸漸長大,心神堅強。他住在荒野中,直到他在以色列人前出現的日期。

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 1:57-66,80/em>

When the time arrived for Elizabeth to have her child she gave birth to a son. Her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had shown his great mercy toward her, and they rejoiced with her. When they came on the eighth day to circumcise the child, they were going to call him Zechariah after his father, but his mother said in reply, “No. He will be called John.” But they answered her, “There is no one among your relatives who has this name.” So they made signs, asking his father what he wished him to be called. He asked for a tablet and wrote, “John is his name,” and all were amazed. Immediately his mouth was opened, his tongue freed, and he spoke blessing God. Then fear came upon all their neighbors, and all these matters were discussed throughout the hill country of Judea. All who heard these things took them to heart, saying, “What, then, will this child be?” For surely the hand of the Lord was with him. The child grew and became strong in spirit, and he was in the desert until the day of his manifestation to Israel.
