【每日福音 | Daily Gospel】五旬節後第八週星期四(2014-07-31/ 07-18)

正教會今日讀經:
格前/ 林前10:28-11:7
  但若有人向你們說:「這是祭過神的肉,」為了那指點的人,和為了良心的緣故,你們就不可吃。我說的良心不是自己的,而是他人的良心。那麼,我的自由為什麼要受他人良心的束縛呢?我若以謝恩之心參加,為什麼我要因謝恩之物而受人責罵呢?所以,你們或吃或喝,或無論作什麼,一切都要為光榮天主而作。你們不可成為猶太人,或希臘人,或天主教會跌倒的原因,但要如我一樣,在一切事上使眾人喜歡,不求我自己的利益,只求大眾的利益,為使他們得救。
  你們該效法我,如同我效法了基督一樣。
  我稱讚你們在一切事上記念我,並照我所傳授給你們的,持守那些傳授。但我願意你們知道:男人的頭是基督,而女人的頭是男人,基督的頭卻是天主。凡男人祈禱或說先知話,若蒙著頭,就是羞辱自己的頭;但凡女人祈禱或說先知話,若不蒙頭,就是羞辱自己的頭,因為她跟那剃了頭髮的完全一樣。女人若不蒙頭,就讓她剪髮罷!但若剪髮或剃頭為女人算是恥辱,她就該蒙頭!男人當然不該蒙頭,因為他是天主的肖像和光榮,而女人卻是男人的光榮。

  But if someone says to you, “This was offered in sacrifice,” do not eat it on account of the one who called attention to it and on account of conscience; I mean not your own conscience, but the other’s. For why should my freedom be determined by someone else’s conscience? If I partake thankfully, why am I reviled for that over which I give thanks? So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God. Avoid giving offense, whether to Jews or Greeks or the church of God, just as I try to please everyone in every way, not seeking my own benefit but that of the many, that they may be saved.
  Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.
  I praise you because you remember me in everything and hold fast to the traditions, just as I handed them on to you. But I want you to know that Christ is the head of every man, and a husband the head of his wife, and God the head of Christ. Any man who prays or prophesies with his head covered brings shame upon his head. But any woman who prays or prophesies with her head unveiled brings shame upon her head, for it is one and the same thing as if she had had her head shaved. For if a woman does not have her head veiled, she may as well have her hair cut off. But if it is shameful for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, then she should wear a veil. A man, on the other hand, should not cover his head, because he is the image and glory of God, but woman is the glory of man.

瑪/ 太16:24-28
  於是,耶穌對門徒說:「誰若願意跟隨我,該棄絕自己,背著自己的十字架來跟隨我,因為誰若願意救自己的性命,必要喪失性命;但誰若為我的原故,喪失自己的性命,必要獲得性命。人縱然賺得了全世界,卻賠上了自己的靈魂,為他有什麼益處?或者,人還能拿什麼作為自己靈魂的代價?因為將來人子要在他父的光榮中同他的天使降來,那時,他要按照每人的行為予以賞報。我實在告訴你們:站在這裏的人中,就有些人在未嘗到死味以前,必要看見人子來到自己的國內。」

  Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. What profit would there be for one to gain the whole world and forfeit his life? Or what can one give in exchange for his life? For the Son of Man will come with his angels in his Father’s glory, and then he will repay everyone according to his conduct. Amen, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.”
