【每日福音 | Daily Gospel】五旬節後第七週星期一(2014-07-21/ 07-08)

聖人慶日:於1579年喀山所發現的誕神女聖像(喀山聖母像)。

正教會今日讀經:
格前/ 林前5:9-6:11
  我先前在信上給你們寫過:不可與淫蕩的人交結,這話並不是泛指有這世上所有淫蕩的人,或貪婪的人,或勒索人的人,或拜偶像的人;若是這樣,你們就非出離這世界不可。其實,我寫給你們的,是說:若有稱為弟兄的,是淫蕩的,或貪婪的,或拜偶像的,或辱罵人的,或酗酒的,或勒索人的,你們就不要同他們交結;並且同這樣的人,連一起吃飯也不可。審斷教外的人,關我何事?教內的人,豈不該由你們審斷嗎?教外的人,自有天主審斷他們。你們務要把那壞人從你們中間剷除!
  你們中間有人與另一人有了爭訟,怎麼竟敢在不義的人面前起訴,而不在聖者面前呢?你們不知道聖者將要審判世界嗎?如果世界要受你們審判,難道你們不配審判一些小事嗎?你們不知道我們連天使都要審判嗎?更何況日常生活的事呢?所以,若你們在日常生活上有了應審判的事,就請那些在教會內受輕視的人來裁判罷!我說這話,是為叫你羞愧,難道你們中間竟沒有一個有智慧的人,能在自己弟兄中間分辨是非,以致弟兄與弟兄互相控告,且在無信仰的人面前控告?
  你們彼此有訴訟的事,就各方面講,已是你們的缺點了;那麼你們為什麼不寧願受點屈,為什麼不寧願吃點虧?你們反而使人受屈,使人吃虧,況且這還是施於弟兄!你們豈不知道,不義的人不得承繼天主的國嗎?你們不要自欺:無論是淫蕩的、或拜偶像的、犯奸淫的、作孌童的、好男色的、偷竊的、貪婪的、辱罵人的、勒索人的,都不能承繼天主的國。你們中從前也有這樣的人,但是你們因著『我們的』主耶穌基督之名,並因我們天主的聖神,已經洗淨了,已經祝聖了,已經成了義人。

  I wrote you in my letter not to associate with immoral people, not at all referring to the immoral of this world or the greedy and robbers or idolaters; for you would then have to leave the world. But I now write to you not to associate with anyone named a brother, if he is immoral, greedy, an idolater, a slanderer, a drunkard, or a robber, not even to eat with such a person. For why should I be judging outsiders? Is it not your business to judge those within? God will judge those outside. “Purge the evil person from your midst.”
  How can any one of you with a case against another dare to bring it to the unjust for judgment instead of to the holy ones? Do you not know that the holy ones will judge the world? If the world is to be judged by you, are you unqualified for the lowest law courts? Do you not know that we will judge angels? Then why not everyday matters? If, therefore, you have courts for everyday matters, do you seat as judges people of no standing in the church? I say this to shame you. Can it be that there is not one among you wise enough to be able to settle a case between brothers? But rather brother goes to court against brother, and that before unbelievers?
  Now indeed (then) it is, in any case, a failure on your part that you have lawsuits against one another. Why not rather put up with injustice? Why not rather let yourselves be cheated? Instead, you inflict injustice and cheat, and this to brothers. Do you not know that the unjust will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators nor idolaters nor adulterers nor boy prostitutes nor practicing homosexuals nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God. That is what some of you used to be; but now you have had yourselves washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.

瑪/ 太13:54-58
  他來到自己的家鄉,在會堂裏教訓人,以致人們都驚訝說:「這人從那裏得了這樣的智慧和奇能?這人不是那木匠的兒子嗎?他的母親不是叫瑪利亞,他的弟兄不是叫雅各伯,若瑟,西滿和猶達嗎?他的姊妹不是都在我們這裡嗎?那麼他的這一切是從那裏來的呢?」他們就對他起了反感。耶穌卻對他們說:「先知除了在自己的本鄉本家外,沒有不受尊敬的。」他在那裏,因為他們不信,沒有多行奇能。

  He came to his native place and taught the people in their synagogue. They were astonished and said, “Where did this man get such wisdom and mighty deeds? Is he not the carpenter’s son? Is not his mother named Mary and his brothers James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas? Are not his sisters all with us? Where did this man get all this?” And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his native place and in his own house.” And he did not work many mighty deeds there because of their lack of faith.

喀山至聖誕神女像:
斐/ 腓2:5-11
  你們該懷有基督耶穌所懷有的心情:他雖具有天主的形體,並沒有以自己與天主同等,為應當把持不捨的,卻使自己空虛,取了奴僕的形體,與人相似,形狀也一見如人;他貶抑自己,聽命至死,且死在十字架上。為此,天主極其舉揚他,賜給了他一個名字,超越其它所有的名字,致使上天、地上和地下的一切,一聽到耶穌的名字,無不屈膝叩拜;一切唇舌無不明認耶穌基督是主,以光榮天主聖父。

  Have among yourselves the same attitude that is also yours in Christ Jesus, Who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God something to be grasped. Rather, he emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness; and found human in appearance, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross. Because of this, God greatly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

路10:38-42; 11:27-28
  他們走路的時候,耶穌進了一個村莊。有一個名叫瑪爾大的女人,把耶穌接到家中。她有一個妹妹,名叫瑪利亞,坐在主的腳前聽他講話。瑪爾大為伺候耶穌,忙碌不已,便上前來說:「主!我的妹妹丟下我一個人伺候,你不介意嗎?請叫她來幫助我吧!」主回答她說:「瑪爾大,瑪爾大!妳為了許多事操心忙碌,其實需要的惟有一件。瑪利亞選擇了更好的一份,是不能從她奪去的。」
  耶穌說這些話的時候,人群中,有一個婦人高聲向他說:「懷過你的胎,及你所吮吸過的乳房,是有福的!」耶穌卻說:「可是那聽天主的話而遵行的人,更是有福的!」

  As they continued their journey he entered a village where a woman whose name was Martha welcomed him. She had a sister named Mary (who) sat beside the Lord at his feet listening to him speak. Martha, burdened with much serving, came to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving? Tell her to help me.” The Lord said to her in reply, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her.”
  While he was speaking, a woman from the crowd called out and said to him, “Blessed is the womb that carried you and the breasts at which you nursed.” He replied, “Rather, blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.”
