The Apocalypse proclaims for us great and eternal hope: "The night shall be no more," and so the Church is guaranteed victory because Jesus the son of God, the light of the world is risen from the darkness of death and is the only light we need to allow us to reign with him forever, certain that the gates of hell will never overcome the Church.

As we approach the end of the liturgical year, we prepare through advent to celebrate the Birth of Jesus, in fulfilment of God's ancient promise (Gen 3:15) to send us a saviour.

Jesus, the true light of the world, undid the many forms of darkness which were the results of the sin of Adam and Eve. The darkness of unending death and of the great deprivation of that truth which Jesus affirmed as the source of true freedom.

All of our grand liturgical celebrations, the Annunciation, Easter, Advent Christmas, Pentecost, present us with a great array of graces to help us to serve God faithfully in this community of faith, love and hope which is the Church, the Mystical Body of Christ.

Lord, continue to purify Your Church in every way so that we will steadfastly and fervently live in Your life and Your truth.

11月 28日( 六 )   常年期第三十四週

默示錄 22:1-7
聖詠 95[94]:1-2,3-5,6-7
路加福音 21:34-36


默示錄給我們宣告了一個永恆不變的偉大希望:「不再有黑夜了」!這是教會必勝的保證。因為天主子耶穌、世界之光,已經從黑暗的死亡中復活了。我們唯獨需要耶穌這道真光,去封殺地獄之門,與祂一起為王,治理萬邦。

本禮儀年度在今天要結束了。隨著展開的是準備慶祝天主滿全舊約的許諾(創3:15),給我們派遣一位救主、耶穌基督的誕生的將臨期。耶穌是驅除世界種種黑暗的真光。因著亞當和厄娃的遺害,黑暗籠罩著世界,歪曲耶穌的真理,導人走向死路。耶穌的真理本是為釋放我們使我們獲得真正的自由。

禮儀年的所有隆重慶典:預報救主降生、復活節、將臨期、聖神降臨節......,帶給我們連串的豐厚恩寵,幫助我們在教會團體的信、望、愛德當中,在基督的奧體內,忠誠地事奉天主。

主,求祢繼續以各種方式淨化教會,使我們能夠堅定而踴躍地在祢內,以祢的真理生活。
