Palm Sunday

1st. Reading: Acts 7: 30-36

30 And when forty years had passed, an Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire in a bush, in the wilderness of Mount Sinai. 

31 When Moses saw it, he marveled at the sight; and as he drew near to observe, the voice of the Lord came to him, 

32 saying, ‘I am the God of your fathers–the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.’ And Moses trembled and dared not look. 

33 ‘Then the Lord said to him, “Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground. 

34I have surely seen the oppression of my people who are in Egypt; I have heard their groaning and have come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send you to Egypt.” ‘ 

35 This Moses whom they rejected, saying, ‘Who made you a ruler and a judge?’ is the one God sent to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the Angel who appeared to him in the bush. 

36He brought them out, after he had shown wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red Sea, and in the wilderness forty years.

2nd. Reading : Romans 10: 5-18

5 For Moses writes about the righteousness which is of the law, “The man who does those things shall live by them.” 

6 But the righteousness of faith speaks in this way, “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’ ” (that is, to bring Christ down from above) 

7 or, ” ‘Who will descend into the abyss?’ ” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). 

8 But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): 

9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 

10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 

11For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.”

12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. 

13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” 

14 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? 

15 And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!” 

16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?” 

17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. 

18 But I say, have they not heard? Yes indeed: “Their sound has gone out to all the earth, And their words to the ends of the world.”

Gospel: John 12 : 12-19

12 The next day a great multitude that had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 

13 took branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him, and cried out: “Hosanna! ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’ The King of Israel!” 

14 Then Jesus, when He had found a young donkey, sat on it; as it is written: 

15 “Fear not, daughter of Zion; Behold, your King is coming, Sitting on a donkey’s colt.”

16 His disciples did not understand these things at first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written about Him and that they had done these things to Him. 

17 Therefore the people, who were with Him when He called Lazarus out of his tomb and raised him from the dead, bore witness. 

18 For this reason the people also met Him, because they heard that He had done this sign. 

19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, “You see that you are accomplishing nothing. Look, the world has gone after Him!”

القرائة الأولى : أعمال ٧ : ٣٠ – ٣٦

30 «وَلَمَّا كَمِلَتْ أَرْبَعُونَ سَنَةً، ظَهَرَ لَهُ مَلاَكُ الرَّبِّ فِي بَرِّيَّةِ جَبَلِ سِينَاءَ فِي لَهِيبِ نَارِ عُلَّيْقَةٍ.

31 فَلَمَّا رَأَى مُوسَى ذلِكَ تَعَجَّبَ مِنَ الْمَنْظَرِ. وَفِيمَا هُوَ يَتَقَدَّمُ لِيَتَطَلَّعَ، صَارَ إِلَيْهِ صَوْتُ الرَّبِّ:

32 أَنَا إِلهُ آبَائِكَ، إِلهُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَإِلهُ إِسْحَاقَ وَإِلهُ يَعْقُوبَ. فَارْتَعَدَ مُوسَى وَلَمْ يَجْسُرْ أَنْ يَتَطَلَّعَ.

33 فَقَالَ لَهُ الرَّبُّ: اخْلَعْ نَعْلَ رِجْلَيْكَ، لأَنَّ الْمَوْضِعَ الَّذِي أَنْتَ وَاقِفٌ عَلَيْهِ أَرْضٌ مُقَدَّسَةٌ.

34 إِنِّي لَقَدْ رَأَيْتُ مَشَقَّةَ شَعْبِي الَّذِينَ فِي مِصْرَ، وَسَمِعْتُ أَنِينَهُمْ وَنَزَلْتُ لأُنْقِذَهُمْ. فَهَلُمَّ الآنَ أُرْسِلُكَ إِلَى مِصْرَ.

35 «هذَا مُوسَى الَّذِي أَنْكَرُوهُ قَائِلِينَ: مَنْ أَقَامَكَ رَئِيسًا وَقَاضِيًا؟ هذَا أَرْسَلَهُ اللهُ رَئِيسًا وَفَادِيًا بِيَدِ الْمَلاَكِ الَّذِي ظَهَرَ لَهُ فِي الْعُلَّيْقَةِ.

36 هذَا أَخْرَجَهُمْ صَانِعًا عَجَائِبَ وَآيَاتٍ فِي أَرْضِ مِصْرَ، وَفِي الْبَحْرِ الأَحْمَرِ، وَفِي الْبَرِّيَّةِ أَرْبَعِينَ سَنَةً.

القرائة الثانية  : رومية ١٠ : ٥ – ١٨

 5 لأَنَّ مُوسَى يَكْتُبُ فِي الْبِرِّ الَّذِي بِالنَّامُوسِ: «إِنَّ الإِنْسَانَ الَّذِي يَفْعَلُهَا سَيَحْيَا بِهَا .»

6 وَأَمَّا الْبِرُّ الَّذِي بِالإِيمَانِ فَيَقُولُ هكَذَا: «لاَ تَقُلْ فِي قَلْبِكَ: مَنْ يَصْعَدُ إِلَى السَّمَاءِ؟» أَيْ لِيُحْدِرَ الْمَسِيحَ،

7 «أَوْ: مَنْ يَهْبِطُ إِلَى الْهَاوِيَةِ؟» أَيْ لِيُصْعِدَ الْمَسِيحَ مِنَ الأَمْوَاتِ

8 لكِنْ مَاذَا يَقُولُ؟ «اَلْكَلِمَةُ قَرِيبَةٌ مِنْكَ، فِي فَمِكَ وَفِي قَلْبِكَ» أَيْ كَلِمَةُ الإِيمَانِ الَّتِي نَكْرِزُ بِهَا:

9 لأَنَّكَ إِنِ اعْتَرَفْتَ بِفَمِكَ بِالرَّبِّ يَسُوعَ، وَآمَنْتَ بِقَلْبِكَ أَنَّ اللهَ أَقَامَهُ مِنَ الأَمْوَاتِ، خَلَصْتَ.

10 لأَنَّ الْقَلْبَ يُؤْمَنُ بِهِ لِلْبِرِّ، وَالْفَمَ يُعْتَرَفُ بِهِ لِلْخَلاَصِ.

11 لأَنَّ الْكِتَابَ يَقُولُ: «كُلُّ مَنْ يُؤْمِنُ بِهِ لاَ يُخْزَى.»

12 لأَنَّهُ لاَ فَرْقَ بَيْنَ الْيَهُودِيِّ وَالْيُونَانِيِّ، لأَنَّ رَبًّا وَاحِدًا لِلْجَمِيعِ، غَنِيًّا لِجَمِيعِ الَّذِينَ يَدْعُونَ بِهِ.

13 لأَنَّ «كُلَّ مَنْ يَدْعُو بِاسْمِ الرَّبِّ يَخْلُصُ.» 

14 فَكَيْفَ يَدْعُونَ بِمَنْ لَمْ يُؤْمِنُوا بِهِ؟ وَكَيْفَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِمَنْ لَمْ يَسْمَعُوا بِهِ؟ وَكَيْفَ يَسْمَعُونَ بِلاَ كَارِزٍ؟

15 وَكَيْفَ يَكْرِزُونَ إِنْ لَمْ يُرْسَلُوا؟ كَمَا هُوَ مَكْتُوبٌ: «مَا أَجْمَلَ أَقْدَامَ الْمُبَشِّرِينَ بِالسَّلاَمِ، الْمُبَشِّرِينَ بِالْخَيْرَاتِ.»

16 لكِنْ لَيْسَ الْجَمِيعُ قَدْ أَطَاعُوا الإِنْجِيلَ، لأَنَّ إِشَعْيَاءَ يَقُولُ: «يَا رَبُّ مَنْ صَدَّقَ خَبَرَنَا؟»

17 إِذًا الإِيمَانُ بِالْخَبَرِ، وَالْخَبَرُ بِكَلِمَةِ اللهِ.

18 لكِنَّنِي أَقُولُ: أَلَعَلَّهُمْ لَمْ يَسْمَعُوا؟ بَلَى! «إِلَى جَمِيعِ الأَرْضِ خَرَجَ صَوْتُهُمْ، وَإِلَى أَقَاصِي الْمَسْكُونَةِ أَقْوَالُهُمْ. »

إنجيل يوحنا ١٢ : ١٢ – ١٩

 12 وَفِي الْغَدِ سَمِعَ الْجَمْعُ الْكَثِيرُ الَّذِي جَاءَ إِلَى الْعِيدِ أَنَّ يَسُوعَ آتٍ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ،

13 فَأَخَذُوا سُعُوفَ النَّخْلِ وَخَرَجُوا لِلِقَائِهِ، وَكَانُوا يَصْرُخُونَ: «أُوصَنَّا! مُبَارَكٌ الآتِي بِاسْمِ الرَّبِّ! مَلِكُ إِسْرَائِيلَ!  »

14 وَوَجَدَ يَسُوعُ جَحْشًا فَجَلَسَ عَلَيْهِ كَمَا هُوَ مَكْتُوبٌ:

15 «لاَ تَخَافِي يَا ابْنَةَ صِهْيَوْنَ. هُوَذَا مَلِكُكِ يَأْتِي جَالِسًا عَلَى جَحْشٍ أَتَانٍ .»

16 وَهذِهِ الأُمُورُ لَمْ يَفْهَمْهَا تَلاَمِيذُهُ أَوَّلاً، وَلكِنْ لَمَّا تَمَجَّدَ يَسُوعُ، حِينَئِذٍ تَذَكَّرُوا أَنَّ هذِهِ كَانَتْ مَكْتُوبَةً عَنْهُ، وَأَنَّهُمْ صَنَعُوا هذِهِ لَهُ.

17 وَكَانَ الْجَمْعُ الَّذِي مَعَهُ يَشْهَدُ أَنَّهُ دَعَا لِعَازَرَ مِنَ الْقَبْرِ وَأَقَامَهُ مِنَ الأَمْوَاتِ.

18 لِهذَا أَيْضًا لاَقَاهُ الْجَمْعُ، لأَنَّهُمْ سَمِعُوا أَنَّهُ كَانَ قَدْ صَنَعَ هذِهِ الآيَةَ.

19 فَقَالَ الْفَرِّيسِيُّونَ بَعْضُهُمْ لِبَعْضٍ: «انْظُرُوا! إِنَّكُمْ لاَ تَنْفَعُونَ شَيْئًا! هُوَذَا الْعَالَمُ قَدْ ذَهَبَ وَرَاءَهُ! »

 

Sixth Sunday of Lent – Healing of the Blind Man

1st. Reading: Acts 23: 12-21

12 And when it was day, some of the Jews banded together and bound themselves under an oath, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul. 

13 Now there were more than forty who had formed this conspiracy. 

14 They came to the chief priests and elders, and said, “We have bound ourselves under a great oath that we will eat nothing until we have killed Paul 

15 Now you, therefore, together with the council, suggest to the commander that he be brought down to you tomorrow, as though you were going to make further inquiries concerning him; but we are ready to kill him before he comes near.” 

16 So when Paul’s sister’s son heard of their ambush, he went and entered the barracks and told Paul. 

17Then Paul called one of the centurions to him and said, “Take this young man to the commander, for he has something to tell him.” 

18 So he took him and brought him to the commander and said, “Paul the prisoner called me to him and asked me to bring this young man to you. He has something to say to you.” 

19 Then the commander took him by the hand, went aside and asked privately, “What is it that you have to tell me? 

20 And he said, “The Jews have agreed to ask that you bring Paul down to the council tomorrow, as though they were going to inquire more fully about him. 

21But do not yield to them, for more than forty of them lie in wait for him, men who have bound themselves by an oath that they will neither eat nor drink till they have killed him; and now they are ready, waiting for the promise from you.

2nd.Reading : 2 Corinthians 10 : 1-11

1 Now I, Paul, myself am pleading with you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ–who in presence am lowly among you, but being absent am bold toward you. 

2 But I beg you that when I am present I may not be bold with that confidence by which I intend to be bold against some, who think of us as if we walked according to the flesh. 

3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 

4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 

5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 

6 and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled. 

7 Do you look at things according to the outward appearance? If anyone is convinced in himself that he is Christ’s, let him again consider this in himself, that just as he is Christ’s, even so we are Christ’s. 

8 For even if I should boast somewhat more about our authority, which the Lord gave us for edification and not for your destruction, I shall not be ashamed– 

9 lest I seem to terrify you by letters.

10 “For his letters,” they say, “are weighty and powerful, but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech contemptible.” 

11 Let such a person consider this, that what we are in word by letters when we are absent, such we will also be in deed when we are present.

Gospel: Mark 10 : 46-52

46 Now they came to Jericho. As He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great multitude, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the road begging. 

47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” 

48Then many warned him to be quiet; but he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” 

49 So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be called. Then they called the blind man, saying to him, “Be of good cheer. Rise, He is calling you.” 

50 And throwing aside his garment, he rose and came to Jesus. 

51 So Jesus answered and said to him, “What do you want Me to do for you?” The blind man said to Him, “Rabboni, that I may receive my sight.” 

52 Then Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.” And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus on the road.

الأحد السادس من الصوم –  شفاء الأعمى

القرائة الأولى : أعمال ٢٣ : ١٢- ٢١  

12 وَلَمَّا صَارَ النَّهَارُ صَنَعَ بَعْضُ الْيَهُودِ اتِّفَاقًا، وَحَرَمُوا أَنْفُسَهُمْ قَائِلِينَ: إِنَّهُمْ لاَ يَأْكُلُونَ وَلاَ يَشْرَبُونَ حَتَّى يَقْتُلُوا بُولُسَ.

13 وَكَانَ الَّذِينَ صَنَعُوا هذَا التَّحَالُفَ أَكْثَرَ مِنْ أَرْبَعِينَ.

14 فَتَقَدَّمُوا إِلَى رُؤَسَاءِ الْكَهَنَةِ وَالشُّيُوخِ وَقَالُوا: «قَدْ حَرَمْنَا أَنْفُسَنَا حِرْمًا أَنْ لاَ نَذُوقَ شَيْئًا حَتَّى نَقْتُلَ بُولُسَ.

15 وَالآنَ أَعْلِمُوا الأَمِيرَ أَنْتُمْ مَعَ الْمَجْمَعِ لِكَيْ يُنْزِلَهُ إِلَيْكُمْ غَدًا، كَأَنَّكُمْ مُزْمِعُونَ أَنْ تَفْحَصُوا بِأَكْثَرِ تَدْقِيق عَمَّا لَهُ. وَنَحْنُ، قَبْلَ أَنْ يَقْتَرِبَ، مُسْتَعِدُّونَ لِقَتْلِهِ . »

16 وَلكِنَّ ابْنَ أُخْتِ بُولُسَ سَمِعَ بِالْكَمِينِ، فَجَاءَ وَدَخَلَ الْمُعَسْكَرَ وَأَخْبَرَ بُولُسَ.

17 فَاسْتَدْعَى بُولُسُ وَاحِدًا مِنْ قُوَّادِ الْمِئَاتِ وَقَالَ: «اذْهَبْ بِهذَا الشَّابِّ إِلَى الأَمِيرِ، لأَنَّ عِنْدَهُ شَيْئًا يُخْبِرُهُ بِهِ . »

18 فَأَخَذَهُ وَأَحْضَرَهُ إِلَى الأَمِيرِ وَقَالَ: «اسْتَدْعَانِي الأَسِيرُ بُولُسُ، وَطَلَبَ أَنْ أُحْضِرَ هذَا الشَّابَّ إِلَيْكَ، وَهُوَ عِنْدَهُ شَيْءٌ لِيَقُولَهُ لَكَ . »

19 فَأَخَذَ الأَمِيرُ بِيَدِهِ وَتَنَحَّى بِهِ مُنْفَرِدًا، وَاسْتَخْبَرَهُ: «مَا هُوَ الَّذِي عِنْدَكَ لِتُخْبِرَنِي بِهِ؟ »

20 فَقَالَ: «إِنَّ الْيَهُودَ تَعَاهَدُوا أَنْ يَطْلُبُوا مِنْكَ أَنْ تُنْزِلَ بُولُسَ غَدًا إِلَى الْمَجْمَعِ، كَأَنَّهُمْ مُزْمِعُونَ أَنْ يَسْتَخْبِرُوا عَنْهُ بِأَكْثَرِ تَدْقِيق.

21 فَلاَ تَنْقَدْ إِلَيْهِمْ، لأَنَّ أَكْثَرَ مِنْ أَرْبَعِينَ رَجُلاً مِنْهُمْ كَامِنُونَ لَهُ، قَدْ حَرَمُوا أَنْفُسَهُمْ أَنْ لاَ يَأْكُلُوا وَلاَ يَشْرَبُوا حَتَّى يَقْتُلُوهُ. وَهُمُ الآنَ مُسْتَعِدُّونَ مُنْتَظِرُونَ الْوَعْدَ مِنْكَ . »

القرائة الثانية   2 كورنثوس  ١٠: ١ – ١٨

 1 ثُمَّ أَطْلُبُ إِلَيْكُمْ بِوَدَاعَةِ الْمَسِيحِ وَحِلْمِهِ، أَنَا نَفْسِي بُولُسُ الَّذِي فِي الْحَضْرَةِ ذَلِيلٌ بَيْنَكُمْ، وَأَمَّا فِي الْغَيْبَةِ فَمُتَجَاسِرٌ عَلَيْكُمْ.

2 وَلكِنْ أَطْلُبُ أَنْ لاَ أَتَجَاسَرَ وَأَنَا حَاضِرٌ بِالثِّقَةِ الَّتِي بِهَا أَرَى أَنِّي سَأَجْتَرِئُ عَلَى قَوْمٍ يَحْسِبُونَنَا كَأَنَّنَا نَسْلُكُ حَسَبَ الْجَسَدِ.

3 لأَنَّنَا وَإِنْ كنَّا نَسْلُكُ فِي الْجَسَدِ، لَسْنَا حَسَبَ الْجَسَدِ نُحَارِبُ.

4 إِذْ أَسْلِحَةُ مُحَارَبَتِنَا لَيْسَتْ جَسَدِيَّةً، بَلْ قَادِرَةٌ بِاللهِ عَلَى هَدْمِ حُصُونٍ.

5 هَادِمِينَ ظُنُونًا وَكُلَّ عُلْوٍ يَرْتَفِعُ ضِدَّ مَعْرِفَةِ اللهِ، وَمُسْتَأْسِرِينَ كُلَّ فِكْرٍ إِلَى طَاعَةِ الْمَسِيحِ،

6 وَمُسْتَعِدِّينَ لأَنْ نَنْتَقِمَ عَلَى كُلِّ عِصْيَانٍ، مَتَى كَمِلَتْ طَاعَتُكُمْ.

7 أَتَنْظُرُونَ إِلَى مَا هُوَ حَسَبَ الْحَضْرَةِ؟ إِنْ وَثِقَ أَحَدٌ بِنَفْسِهِ أَنَّهُ لِلْمَسِيحِ، فَلْيَحْسِبْ هذَا أَيْضًا مِنْ نَفْسِهِ: أَنَّهُ كَمَا هُوَ لِلْمَسِيحِ، كَذلِكَ نَحْنُ أَيْضًا لِلْمَسِيحِ!

8 فَإِنِّي وَإِنِ افْتَخَرْتُ شَيْئًا أَكْثَرَ بِسُلْطَانِنَا الَّذِي أَعْطَانَا إِيَّاهُ الرَّبُّ لِبُنْيَانِكُمْ لاَ لِهَدْمِكُمْ، لاَ أُخْجَلُ.

9 لِئَلاَّ أَظْهَرَ كَأَنِّي أُخِيفُكُمْ بِالرَّسَائِلِ.

10 لأَنَّهُ يَقُولُ: «الرَّسَائِلُ ثَقِيلَةٌ وَقَوِيَّةٌ، وَأَمَّا حُضُورُ الْجَسَدِ فَضَعِيفٌ، وَالْكَلاَمُ حَقِيرٌ . »

11 مِثْلُ هذَا فَلْيَحْسِبْ هَذَا: أَنَّنَا كَمَا نَحْنُ فِي الْكَلاَمِ بِالرَّسَائِلِ وَنَحْنُ غَائِبُونَ، هكَذَا نَكُونُ أَيْضًا بِالْفِعْلِ وَنَحْنُ حَاضِرُونَ.

12 لأَنَّنَا لاَ نَجْتَرِئُ أَنْ نَعُدَّ أَنْفُسَنَا بَيْنَ قَوْمٍ مِنَ الَّذِينَ يَمْدَحُونَ أَنْفُسَهُمْ، وَلاَ أَنْ نُقَابِلَ أَنْفُسَنَا بِهِمْ. بَلْ هُمْ إِذْ يَقِيسُونَ أَنْفُسَهُمْ عَلَى أَنْفُسِهِمْ، وَيُقَابِلُونَ أَنْفُسَهُمْ بِأَنْفُسِهِمْ، لاَ يَفْهَمُونَ.

13 وَلكِنْ نَحْنُ لاَ نَفْتَخِرُ إِلَى مَا لاَ يُقَاسُ، بَلْ حَسَبَ قِيَاسِ الْقَانُونِ الَّذِي قَسَمَهُ لَنَا اللهُ، قِيَاسًا لِلْبُلُوغِ إِلَيْكُمْ أَيْضًا.

14 لأَنَّنَا لاَ نُمَدِّدُ أَنْفُسَنَا كَأَنَّنَا لَسْنَا نَبْلُغُ إِلَيْكُمْ. إِذْ قَدْ وَصَلْنَا إِلَيْكُمْ أَيْضًا فِي إِنْجِيلِ الْمَسِيحِ.

15 غَيْرَ مُفْتَخِرِينَ إِلَى مَا لاَ يُقَاسُ فِي أَتْعَابِ آخَرِينَ، بَلْ رَاجِينَ ­إِذَا نَمَا إِيمَانُكُمْ­ أَنْ نَتَعَظَّمَ بَيْنَكُمْ حَسَبَ قَانُونِنَا بِزِيَادَةٍ،

16 لِنُبَشِّرَ إِلَى مَا وَرَاءَكُمْ. لاَ لِنَفْتَخِرَ بِالأُمُورِ الْمُعَدَّةِ فِي قَانُونِ غَيْرِنَا.

17 وَأَمَّا: «مَنِ افْتَخَرَ فَلْيَفْتَخِرْ بِالرَّبِّ».

18 لأَنَّهُ لَيْسَ مَنْ مَدَحَ نَفْسَهُ هُوَ الْمُزَكَّى، بَلْ مَنْ يَمْدَحُهُ الرَّبُّ.

إنجيل مرقس ١٠: ٤٦-٥٢

46 وَجَاءُوا إِلَى أَرِيحَا. وَفِيمَا هُوَ خَارِجٌ مِنْ أَرِيحَا مَعَ تَلاَمِيذِهِ وَجَمْعٍ غَفِيرٍ، كَانَ بَارْتِيمَاوُسُ الأَعْمَى ابْنُ تِيمَاوُسَ جَالِسًا عَلَى الطَّرِيقِ يَسْتَعْطِي.

47 فَلَمَّا سَمِعَ أَنَّهُ يَسُوعُ النَّاصِرِيُّ، ابْتَدَأَ يَصْرُخُ وَيَقُولُ: «يَا يَسُوعُ ابْنَ دَاوُدَ، ارْحَمْنِي

48 فَانْتَهَرَهُ كَثِيرُونَ لِيَسْكُتَ، فَصَرَخَ أَكْثَرَ كَثِيرًا: «يَا ابْنَ دَاوُدَ، ارْحَمْنِي!».

49 فَوَقَفَ يَسُوعُ وَأَمَرَ أَنْ يُنَادَى. فَنَادَوُا الأَعْمَى قَائِلِينَ لَهُ: «ثِقْ! قُمْ! هُوَذَا يُنَادِيكَ».

50 فَطَرَحَ رِدَاءَهُ وَقَامَ وَجَاءَ إِلَى يَسُوعَ.

51 فَأَجَابَ يَسُوعُ وَقَالَ لَهُ: «مَاذَا تُرِيدُ أَنْ أَفْعَلَ بِكَ؟» فَقَالَ لَهُ الأَعْمَى: «يَا سَيِّدِي، أَنْ أُبْصِرَ!».

52 فَقَالَ لَهُ يَسُوعُ: «اذْهَبْ. إِيمَانُكَ قَدْ شَفَاكَ». فَلِلْوَقْتِ أَبْصَرَ، وَتَبِعَ يَسُوعَ فِي الطَّرِيقِ.

Sayings of the Saints

Ask with tears, seek with obedience, knock with patience. For thus he who asks with tears receives, and he who seeks with obedience finds, and to him that knocks with patience it shall be opened.
اسال بدموع ، اطلب بطاعة ، إقرع بالصبر، فإن من يسأل بالدموع يأخذ ، ومن يطلب بالطاعة يجد ، ومن يقرع بالصبر يفتح له

— St. John Climacus القديس يوحنا يوحنا السُلَّمي
