【每日福音 | Daily Gospel】五旬節後第六週星期日(2014-07-20/ 07-07)

正教會今日讀經:
羅12:6-14
  按我們各人所受的聖寵,各有不同的恩賜:如果是說預言,就應與信德相符合;如果是服務,就應用在服務上;如果是教導,就應用在教導上;如果是勸勉,就應用在勸勉上;施與的,應該大方;監督的,應該殷勤;行慈善的,應該和顏悅色。
  愛情不可是虛偽的。你們當厭惡惡事,附和善事。論兄弟之愛,要彼此相親相愛;論尊敬,要彼此爭先。論關懷,不可疏忽;論心神,要熱切;對於主,要衷心事奉。論望德,要喜樂;在困苦中,要忍耐;在祈禱上,要恒心;對聖者的急需,要分擔;對客人,要款待。迫害你們的,要祝福;只可祝福,不可詛咒。

  Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us exercise them: if prophecy, in proportion to the faith; if ministry, in ministering; if one is a teacher, in teaching; if one exhorts, in exhortation; if one contributes, in generosity; if one is over others, with diligence; if one does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.
  Let love be sincere; hate what is evil, hold on to what is good; love one another with mutual affection; anticipate one another in showing honor. Do not grow slack in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, endure in affliction, persevere in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the holy ones, exercise hospitality. Bless those who persecute (you), bless and do not curse them.

瑪/ 太9:1-8
  耶穌上船過海,來到了自己的城。看,有人給他送來一個躺在床上的癱子,耶穌一見他們的信心,就對癱子說:「孩子,你放心,你的罪赦了。」經師中有幾個人心裏說:「這人說了褻瀆的話。」耶穌看透他們的心意,說:「你們為什麼心裏思念惡事呢?什麼比較容易呢?是說:你的罪赦了,或是說:起來行走罷?為叫你們知道,人子在地上有赦罪的權柄──就對癱子說:起來,拿起你的床,回家去罷!」那人就起來,回家去了。群眾見了,就都害怕起來,遂歸光榮於天主,因他賜給了人們這樣大的權柄。

  He entered a boat, made the crossing, and came into his own town. And there people brought to him a paralytic lying on a stretcher. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Courage, child, your sins are forgiven.” At that, some of the scribes said to themselves, “This man is blaspheming.” Jesus knew what they were thinking, and said, “Why do you harbor evil thoughts? Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Rise and walk’? But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins” – he then said to the paralytic, “Rise, pick up your stretcher, and go home.” He rose and went home. When the crowds saw this they were struck with awe and glorified God who had given such authority to human beings.
