【每日福音 | Daily Gospel】五旬節後第一週星期二、聖三的第三天(2014-06-10/ 05-28)

正教會今日讀經:
羅1:1-7;13-17
  基督耶穌的僕人保祿,蒙召作宗徒,被選拔為傳天主的福音──這福音是天主先前藉自己的先知在聖經上所預許的,是論及他的兒子,我們的主耶穌基督,他按肉身是生於達味的後裔,按至聖的神性,由於他從死者中復活,被立為具有大能的天主之子,藉著祂,我們領受了宗徒職務的恩寵,為使萬民服從信德,以光榮他的聖名,其中也有你們這些蒙召屬於耶穌基督的人──我保祿致書與一切住在羅馬,為天主所鍾愛,並蒙召為聖徒的人:願恩寵與平安由我們的父天主,和我們的主耶穌基督賜與你們。
  弟兄們!我願告訴你們:我已多次決定要往你們那裏去,為在你們中間,如在其他外邦人中一樣,得到一些效果;然而直到現在,總是被阻延。不但對希臘人,也對化外人,不但對有智慧的人,也對愚笨的人,我都是一個欠債者。所以,只要由得我,我也切願向你們在羅馬的人宣講福音。
  我決不以福音為恥,因為福音正是天主的德能,為使一切有信仰的人獲得救恩,先使猶太人,後使希臘人。因為福音啟示了天主所施行的正義,這正義是源於信德,而又歸於信德,正如經上所載:『義人因信德而生活。』

  Paul, a slave of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God, which he promised previously through his prophets in the holy scriptures, the gospel about his Son, descended from David according to the flesh, but established as Son of God in power according to the spirit of holiness through resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord. Through him we have received the grace of apostleship, to bring about the obedience of faith, for the sake of his name, among all the Gentiles, among whom are you also, who are called to belong to Jesus Christ; to all the beloved of God in Rome, called to be holy. Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
  I do not want you to be unaware, brothers, that I often planned to come to you, though I was prevented until now, that I might harvest some fruit among you, too, as among the rest of the Gentiles. To Greeks and non-Greeks alike, to the wise and the ignorant, I am under obligation; that is why I am eager to preach the gospel also to you in Rome.
  For I am not ashamed of the gospel. It is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: for Jew first, and then Greek. For in it is revealed the righteousness of God from faith to faith; as it is written, “The one who is righteous by faith will live.”

瑪/ 太4:25-5:13
  於是有許多群眾從加里肋亞、「十城區」、耶路撒冷、猶太和約但河東岸來跟隨了他。
  耶穌一見群眾,就上了山,坐下;他的門徒上他跟前來,他遂開口教訓他們說:
  「神貧的人是有福的,因為天國是他們的。哀慟的人是有福的,因為他們要受安慰。溫良的人是有福的,因為他們要承受土地。飢渴慕義的人是有福的,因為他們要得飽飫。憐憫人的人是有福的,因為他們要受憐憫。心裏潔淨的人是有福的,因為他們要看見天主。締造和平的人是有福的,因為他們要稱為天主的子女。為義而受迫害的人是有福的,因為天國是他們的。幾時人為了我而辱罵迫害你們,捏造一切壞話毀謗你們,你們是有福的。你們歡喜踴躍罷!因為你們在天上的賞報是豐富的,因為在你們以前的先知,人也曾這樣迫害過他們。
  「你們是地上的鹽,鹽若失了味,可用什麼使它再鹹呢?它再毫無用途,只好拋在外邊,任人踐踏罷了。」

  And great crowds from Galilee, the Decapolis, Jerusalem, and Judea, and from beyond the Jordan followed him. When he saw the crowds, he went up the mountain, and after he had sat down, his disciples came to him. He began to teach them, saying:
  ”Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land. Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you (falsely) because of me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven. Thus they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
  ”You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.”
