Third of the Latter Sundays of Easter

1st. Reading: James 5:7-13

7 Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. 

8 You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand. 

9 Do not grumble against one another, brethren, lest you be condemned. Behold, the Judge is standing at the door! 

10 My brethren, take the prophets, who spoke in the name of the Lord, as an example of suffering and patience. 

11 Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord–that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful. 

12 But above all, my brethren, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath. But let your “Yes,” be “Yes,” and your “No,” “No,” lest you fall into judgment. 

13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms.

2nd. Reading: 2 Corinthians 1:15-23

15 And in this confidence I intended to come to you before, that you might have a second benefit– 

16 to pass by way of you to Macedonia, to come again from Macedonia to you, and be helped by you on my way to Judea.

17 Therefore, when I was planning this, did I do it lightly? Or the things I plan, do I plan according to the flesh, that with me there should be Yes, Yes, and No, No? 

18 But as God is faithful, our word to you was not Yes and No. 

19 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us–by me, Silvanus, and Timothy–was not Yes and No, but in Him was Yes. 

20 For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us. 

21 Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God, 

22 who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee. 

23 Moreover I call God as witness against my soul, that to spare you I came no more to Corinth.

Gospel: Luke 14:14-23

14 And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you; for you shall be repaid at the resurrection of the just.” 

15 Now when one of those who sat at the table with Him heard these things, he said to Him, “Blessed is he who shall eat bread in the kingdom of God!” 

16 Then He said to him, “A certain man gave a great supper and invited many, 

17 and sent his servant at supper time to say to those who were invited, ‘Come, for all things are now ready.’ 

18 But they all with one accord began to make excuses. The first said to him, ‘I have bought a piece of ground, and I must go and see it. I ask you to have me excused.’ 

19 And another said, ‘I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am going to test them. I ask you to have me excused.’

20 Still another said, ‘I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.’

21 So that servant came and reported these things to his master. Then the master of the house, being angry, said to his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in here the poor and the maimed and the lame and the blind.’ 

22 And the servant said, ‘Master, it is done as you commanded, and still there is room.’ 

23 Then the master said to the servant, ‘Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.

الأحد الثالث من الآحاد الأخيرة للقيامة

 القرائة الأولى : يعقوب 5 : 7 – 13

7 فَتَأَنَّوْا أَيُّهَا الإِخْوَةُ إِلَى مَجِيءِ الرَّبِّ. هُوَذَا الْفَلاَحُ يَنْتَظِرُ ثَمَرَ الأَرْضِ الثَّمِينَ، مُتَأَنِّيًا عَلَيْهِ حَتَّى يَنَالَ الْمَطَرَ الْمُبَكِّرَ وَالْمُتَأَخِّرَ.

8 فَتَأَنَّوْا أَنْتُمْ وَثَبِّتُوا قُلُوبَكُمْ، لأَنَّ مَجِيءَ الرَّبِّ قَدِ اقْتَرَبَ.

9 لاَ يَئِنَّ بَعْضُكُمْ عَلَى بَعْضٍ أَيُّهَا الإِخْوَةُ لِئَلاَّ تُدَانُوا. هُوَذَا الدَّيَّانُ وَاقِفٌ قُدَّامَ الْبَابِ.

10 خُذُوا يَا إِخْوَتِي مِثَالاً لاحْتِمَالِ الْمَشَقَّاتِ وَالأَنَاةِ: الأَنْبِيَاءَ الَّذِينَ تَكَلَّمُوا بِاسْمِ الرَّبِّ.

11 هَا نَحْنُ نُطَوِّبُ الصَّابِرِينَ. قَدْ سَمِعْتُمْ بِصَبْرِ أَيُّوبَ وَرَأَيْتُمْ عَاقِبَةَ الرَّبِّ. لأَنَّ الرَّبَّ كَثِيرُ الرَّحْمَةِ وَرَؤُوفٌ.

12 وَلكِنْ قَبْلَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ يَا إِخْوَتِي، لاَ تَحْلِفُوا، لاَ بِالسَّمَاءِ، وَلاَ بِالأَرْضِ، وَلاَ بِقَسَمٍ آخَرَ. بَلْ لِتَكُنْ نَعَمْكُمْ نَعَمْ، وَلاَكُمْ لاَ، لِئَلاَّ تَقَعُوا تَحْتَ دَيْنُونَةٍ.

13 أَعَلَى أَحَدٍ بَيْنَكُمْ مَشَقَّاتٌ؟ فَلْيُصَلِّ. أَمَسْرُورٌ أَحَدٌ؟ فَلْيُرَتِّلْ.

 القرائة الثانية : 2 كورنثوس 1 : 15 –  23

15 وَبِهذِهِ الثِّقَةِ كُنْتُ أَشَاءُ أَنْ آتِيَ إِلَيْكُمْ أَوَّلاً، لِتَكُونَ لَكُمْ نِعْمَةٌ ثَانِيَةٌ.

16 وَأَنْ أَمُرَّ بِكُمْ إِلَى مَكِدُونِيَّةَ، وَآتِيَ أَيْضًا مِنْ مَكِدُونِيَّةَ إِلَيْكُمْ، وَأُشَيَّعَ مِنْكُمْ إِلَى الْيَهُودِيَّةِ.

17 فَإِذْ أَنَا عَازِمٌ عَلَى هذَا، أَلَعَلِّي اسْتَعْمَلْتُ الْخِفَّةَ؟ أَمْ أَعْزِمُ عَلَى مَا أَعْزِمُ بِحَسَبِ الْجَسَدِ، كَيْ يَكُونَ عِنْدِي نَعَمْ نَعَمْ وَلاَ لاَ؟

18 لكِنْ أَمِينٌ هُوَ اللهُ إِنَّ كَلاَمَنَا لَكُمْ لَمْ يَكُنْ نَعَمْ وَلاَ.

19 لأَنَّ ابْنَ اللهِ يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحَ، الَّذِي كُرِزَ بِهِ بَيْنَكُمْ بِوَاسِطَتِنَا، أَنَا وَسِلْوَانُسَ وَتِيمُوثَاوُسَ، لَمْ يَكُنْ نَعَمْ وَلاَ، بَلْ قَدْ كَانَ فِيهِ نَعَمْ.

20 لأَنْ مَهْمَا كَانَتْ مَوَاعِيدُ اللهِ فَهُوَ فِيهِ «النَّعَمْ» وَفِيهِ «الآمِينُ»، لِمَجْدِ اللهِ، بِوَاسِطَتِنَا.

21 وَلكِنَّ الَّذِي يُثَبِّتُنَا مَعَكُمْ فِي الْمَسِيحِ، وَقَدْ مَسَحَنَا، هُوَ اللهُ

22 الَّذِي خَتَمَنَا أَيْضًا، وَأَعْطَى عَرْبُونَ الرُّوحِ فِي قُلُوبِنَا.

23 وَلكِنِّي أَسْتَشْهِدُ اللهَ عَلَى نَفْسِي، أَنِّي إِشْفَاقًا عَلَيْكُمْ لَمْ آتِ إِلَى كُورِنْثُوسَ.

أنجيل لوقا 14 : 14 – 23

14 فَيَكُونَ لَكَ الطُّوبَى إِذْ لَيْسَ لَهُمْ حَتَّى يُكَافُوكَ، لأَنَّكَ تُكَافَى فِي قِيَامَةِ الأَبْرَارِ».

15 فَلَمَّا سَمِعَ ذلِكَ وَاحِدٌ مِنَ الْمُتَّكِئِينَ قَالَ لَهُ: «طُوبَى لِمَنْ يَأْكُلُ خُبْزًا فِي مَلَكُوتِ اللهِ».

16 فَقَالَ لَهُ: «إِنْسَانٌ صَنَعَ عَشَاءً عَظِيمًا وَدَعَا كَثِيرِينَ،

17 وَأَرْسَلَ عَبْدَهُ فِي سَاعَةِ الْعَشَاءِ لِيَقُولَ لِلْمَدْعُوِّينَ: تَعَالَوْا لأَنَّ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ قَدْ أُعِدَّ.

18 فَابْتَدَأَ الْجَمِيعُ بِرَأْيٍ وَاحِدٍ يَسْتَعْفُونَ. قَالَ لَهُ الأَوَّلُ: إِنِّي اشْتَرَيْتُ حَقْلاً، وَأَنَا مُضْطَرٌّ أَنْ أَخْرُجَ وَأَنْظُرَهُ. أَسْأَلُكَ أَنْ تُعْفِيَنِي.

19 وَقَالَ آخَرُ: إِنِّي اشْتَرَيْتُ خَمْسَةَ أَزْوَاجِ بَقَرٍ، وَأَنَا مَاضٍ لأَمْتَحِنَهَا. أَسْأَلُكَ أَنْ تُعْفِيَنِي.

20 وَقَالَ آخَرُ: إِنِّي تَزَوَّجْتُ بِامْرَأَةٍ، فَلِذلِكَ لاَ أَقْدِرُ أَنْ أَجِيءَ.

21 فَأَتَى ذلِكَ الْعَبْدُ وَأَخْبَرَ سَيِّدَهُ بِذلِكَ. حِينَئِذٍ غَضِبَ رَبُّ الْبَيْتِ، وَقَالَ لِعَبْدِهِ: اخْرُجْ عَاجِلاً إِلَى شَوَارِعِ الْمَدِينَةِ وَأَزِقَّتِهَا، وَأَدْخِلْ إِلَى هُنَا الْمَسَاكِينَ وَالْجُدْعَ وَالْعُرْجَ وَالْعُمْيَ.

22 فَقَالَ الْعَبْدُ: يَا سَيِّدُ، قَدْ صَارَ كَمَا أَمَرْتَ، وَيُوجَدُ أَيْضًا مَكَانٌ.

23 فَقَالَ السَّيِّدُ لِلْعَبْدِ: اخْرُجْ إِلَى الطُّرُقِ وَالسِّيَاجَاتِ وَأَلْزِمْهُمْ بِالدُّخُولِ حَتَّى يَمْتَلِئَ بَيْتِي،


Sayings of the Saints

If you were unable to change your life and renew your heart because you are helpless, then you can surrender your life to God Who is able to renew you.
ان كنت لا تستطيع ان تغير حياتك و تجدد قلبك لانك عاجز فانك قادر ان تسلم حياتك الى اللة الذى يقدر ان يجددك
