【每日福音 | Daily Gospel】五旬節後第十二週星期五(2014-08-29/ 08-16)

正教會今日讀經
格後/ 林後7:10-16
  因為按照天主聖意而來的憂苦,能產生再不返悔的悔改,以致於得救;世間的憂苦卻產生死亡。且看,這種按照天主聖意而來的憂苦,在你們中產生了多大的熱情,甚至辨白,而憤慨,而恐懼,而切望,而熱忱,而譴責;在各方面,你們表明自己對那事件是無罪的。因此,雖然我從前給你們寫了信,卻不是為了那侵犯人的,也不是為了那受侵犯的,而是為要把你們對我們的熱情,在天主面前表彰出來;為此我們得到了安慰。
  在我們受安慰之外,我們尤其因弟鐸的喜樂而更加喜樂,因為他的心神由你們得到寬慰,因為我如對弟鐸誇耀過你們什麼,我也不致於羞愧,因為我向他誇耀你們的話,成了真的,正如我們對你們所說的一切都是真的一樣;並且,他一想起你們眾人的服從,怎樣以敬畏和戰慄的心情來接待他,他的心腸就越發傾向你們。我真喜歡,因為我對你們各方面都可以放心了!

  For godly sorrow produces a salutary repentance without regret, but worldly sorrow produces death. For behold what earnestness this godly sorrow has produced for you, as well as readiness for a defense, and indignation, and fear, and yearning, and zeal, and punishment. In every way you have shown yourselves to be innocent in the matter. So then even though I wrote to you, it was not on account of the one who did the wrong, or on account of the one who suffered the wrong, but in order that your concern for us might be made plain to you in the sight of God. For this reason we are encouraged.
  And besides our encouragement, we rejoice even more because of the joy of Titus, since his spirit has been refreshed by all of you. For if I have boasted to him about you, I was not put to shame. No, just as everything we said to you was true, so our boasting before Titus proved to be the truth. And his heart goes out to you all the more, as he remembers the obedience of all of you, when you received him with fear and trembling. I rejoice, because I have confidence in you in every respect.

谷/ 可2:18-22
  當時,若翰的門徒和法利塞人正在禁食。有人來向耶穌說:「為什麼若翰的門徒和法利塞人的門徒禁食,而你的門徒卻不禁食呢?」耶穌對他們說:「伴郎豈能在新郎還與他們在一起的時候禁食?他們與新郎在一起的時候,決不能禁食。但日子將要來到:當新郎從他們中被劫去時,在那一天,他們就要禁食了。沒有人將未漂過的布補在舊衣服上的;不然,補上的那塊新布要扯裂了舊的,破綻就更加壞了。也沒有人把酒裝在舊皮囊裏的;不然酒漲破了皮囊,酒和皮囊都喪失了;而是新酒應裝在新皮囊裏。」

   The disciples of John and of the Pharisees were accustomed to fast. People came to him and objected, “Why do the disciples of John and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?” Jesus answered them, “Can the wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them they cannot fast. But the days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast on that day. No one sews a piece of unshrunken cloth on an old cloak. If he does, its fullness pulls away, the new from the old, and the tear gets worse. Likewise, no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the skins are ruined. Rather, new wine is poured into fresh wineskins.”
