St. Joseph’s Revelation

1st. Reading: 1 Peter 5:1-14

1 The elders who are among you I exhort, I who am a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that will be revealed: 

2Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly; 

3 nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock; 

4 and when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away. 

5Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” 

6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, 

7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. 

8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 

9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. 

10 But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. 

11 To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. 

12 By Silvanus, our faithful brother as I consider him, I have written to you briefly, exhorting and testifying that this is the true grace of God in which you stand. 

13 She who is in Babylon, elect together with you, greets you; and so does Mark my son. 

14 Greet one another with a kiss of love. Peace to you all who are in Christ Jesus. Amen.

2nd.Reading: Ephesians 2:19-3:9

19 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 

20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone, 

21 in whom the whole building, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, 

22 in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

1 For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for you Gentiles– 

2 if indeed you have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which was given to me for you, 

3 how that by revelation He made known to me the mystery (as I have briefly written already, 

4 by which, when you read, you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ), 

5 which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets: 

6 that the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, of the same body, and partakers of His promise in Christ through the gospel, 

7 of which I became a minister according to the gift of the grace of God given to me by the effective working of His power. 

8 To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, 

9 and to make all see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ.

Gospel: Matthew 1: 18-25

18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. 

19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. 

20 But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 

21 And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” 

22 So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: 

23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.” 

24 Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to him his wife, 

25 and did not know her till she had brought forth her firstborn Son. And he called His name Jesus.

 القرائة الأولى : 1 بطرس 5 : 1 – 14

1 أَطْلُبُ إِلَى الشُّيُوخِ الَّذِينَ بَيْنَكُمْ، أَنَا الشَّيْخَ رَفِيقَهُمْ، وَالشَّاهِدَ لآلاَمِ الْمَسِيحِ، وَشَرِيكَ الْمَجْدِ الْعَتِيدِ أَنْ يُعْلَنَ،

2 ارْعَوْا رَعِيَّةَ اللهِ الَّتِي بَيْنَكُمْ نُظَّارًا، لاَ عَنِ اضْطِرَارٍ بَلْ بِالاخْتِيَارِ، وَلاَ لِرِبْحٍ قَبِيحٍ بَلْ بِنَشَاطٍ،

3 وَلاَ كَمَنْ يَسُودُ عَلَى الأَنْصِبَةِ، بَلْ صَائِرِينَ أَمْثِلَةً لِلرَّعِيَّةِ.

4 وَمَتَى ظَهَرَ رَئِيسُ الرُّعَاةِ تَنَالُونَ إِكْلِيلَ الْمَجْدِ الَّذِي لاَ يَبْلَى.

5 كَذلِكَ أَيُّهَا الأَحْدَاثُ، اخْضَعُوا لِلشُّيُوخِ، وَكُونُوا جَمِيعًا خَاضِعِينَ بَعْضُكُمْ لِبَعْضٍ، وَتَسَرْبَلُوا بِالتَّوَاضُعِ، لأَنَّ: «اللهَ يُقَاوِمُ الْمُسْتَكْبِرِينَ، وَأَمَّا الْمُتَوَاضِعُونَ فَيُعْطِيهِمْ نِعْمَةً».

6 فَتَوَاضَعُوا تَحْتَ يَدِ اللهِ الْقَوِيَّةِ لِكَيْ يَرْفَعَكُمْ فِي حِينِهِ،

7 مُلْقِينَ كُلَّ هَمِّكُمْ عَلَيْهِ، لأَنَّهُ هُوَ يَعْتَنِي بِكُمْ.

8 اُصْحُوا وَاسْهَرُوا. لأَنَّ إِبْلِيسَ خَصْمَكُمْ كَأَسَدٍ زَائِرٍ، يَجُولُ مُلْتَمِسًا مَنْ يَبْتَلِعُهُ هُوَ.

9 فَقَاوِمُوهُ، رَاسِخِينَ فِي الإِيمَانِ، عَالِمِينَ أَنَّ نَفْسَ هذِهِ الآلاَمِ تُجْرَى عَلَى إِخْوَتِكُمُ الَّذِينَ فِي الْعَالَمِ.

10 وَإِلهُ كُلِّ نِعْمَةٍ الَّذِي دَعَانَا إِلَى مَجْدِهِ الأَبَدِيِّ فِي الْمَسِيحِ يَسُوعَ، بَعْدَمَا تَأَلَّمْتُمْ يَسِيرًا، هُوَ يُكَمِّلُكُمْ، وَيُثَبِّتُكُمْ، وَيُقَوِّيكُمْ، وَيُمَكِّنُكُمْ.

11 لَهُ الْمَجْدُ وَالسُّلْطَانُ إِلَى أَبَدِ الآبِدِينَ. آمِينَ.

12 بِيَدِ سِلْوَانُسَ الأَخِ الأَمِينِ،­كَمَا أَظُنُّ­ كَتَبْتُ إِلَيْكُمْ بِكَلِمَاتٍ قَلِيلَةٍ وَاعِظًا وَشَاهِدًا، أَنَّ هذِهِ هِيَ نِعْمَةُ اللهِ الْحَقِيقِيَّةُ الَّتِي فِيهَا تَقُومُونَ.

13 تُسَلِّمُ عَلَيْكُمُ الَّتِي فِي بَابِلَ الْمُخْتَارَةُ مَعَكُمْ، وَمَرْقُسُ ابْنِي.

14 سَلِّمُوا بَعْضُكُمْ عَلَى بَعْضٍ بِقُبْلَةِ الْمَحَبَّةِ. سَلاَمٌ لَكُمْ جَمِيعِكُمُ الَّذِينَ فِي الْمَسِيحِ يَسُوعَ. آمِينَ.

القرائة الثانية : أفسس 2 : 19 –  3 : 9

19 فَلَسْتُمْ إِذًا بَعْدُ غُرَبَاءَ وَنُزُلاً، بَلْ رَعِيَّةٌ مَعَ الْقِدِّيسِينَ وَأَهْلِ بَيْتِ اللهِ،

20 مَبْنِيِّينَ عَلَى أَسَاسِ الرُّسُلِ وَالأَنْبِيَاءِ، وَيَسُوعُ الْمَسِيحُ نَفْسُهُ حَجَرُ الزَّاوِيَةِ،

21 الَّذِي فِيهِ كُلُّ الْبِنَاءِ مُرَكَّبًا مَعًا، يَنْمُو هَيْكَلاً مُقَدَّسًا فِي الرَّبِّ.

22 الَّذِي فِيهِ أَنْتُمْ أَيْضًا مَبْنِيُّونَ مَعًا، مَسْكَنًا للهِ فِي الرُّوحِ.

1 بِسَبَبِ هذَا أَنَا بُولُسُ، أَسِيرُ الْمَسِيحِ يَسُوعَ لأَجْلِكُمْ أَيُّهَا الأُمَمُ،

2 إِنْ كُنْتُمْ قَدْ سَمِعْتُمْ بِتَدْبِيرِ نِعْمَةِ اللهِ الْمُعْطَاةِ لِي لأَجْلِكُمْ.

3 أَنَّهُ بِإِعْلاَنٍ عَرَّفَنِي بِالسِّرِّ. كَمَا سَبَقْتُ فَكَتَبْتُ بِالإِيجَازِ.

4 الَّذِي بِحَسَبِهِ حِينَمَا تَقْرَأُونَهُ، تَقْدِرُونَ أَنْ تَفْهَمُوا دِرَايَتِي بِسِرِّ الْمَسِيحِ.

5 الَّذِي فِي أَجْيَال أُخَرَ لَمْ يُعَرَّفْ بِهِ بَنُو الْبَشَرِ، كَمَا قَدْ أُعْلِنَ الآنَ لِرُسُلِهِ الْقِدِّيسِينَ وَأَنْبِيَائِهِ بِالرُّوحِ:

6 أَنَّ الأُمَمَ شُرَكَاءُ فِي الْمِيرَاثِ وَالْجَسَدِ وَنَوَالِ مَوْعِدِهِ فِي الْمَسِيحِ بِالإِنْجِيلِ.

7 الَّذِي صِرْتُ أَنَا خَادِمًا لَهُ حَسَبَ مَوْهِبَةِ نِعْمَةِ اللهِ الْمُعْطَاةِ لِي حَسَبَ فِعْلِ قُوَّتِهِ.

8 لِي أَنَا أَصْغَرَ جَمِيعِ الْقِدِّيسِينَ، أُعْطِيَتْ هذِهِ النِّعْمَةُ، أَنْ أُبَشِّرَ بَيْنَ الأُمَمِ بِغِنَى الْمَسِيحِ الَّذِي لاَ يُسْتَقْصَى،

9 وَأُنِيرَ الْجَمِيعَ فِي مَا هُوَ شَرِكَةُ السِّرِّ الْمَكْتُومِ مُنْذُ الدُّهُورِ فِي اللهِ خَالِقِ الْجَمِيعِ بِيَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ.

قرائة الأنجيل المقدس : متى 1 : 18 – 25

18 أَمَّا وِلاَدَةُ يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ فَكَانَتْ هكَذَا: لَمَّا كَانَتْ مَرْيَمُ أُمُّهُ مَخْطُوبَةً لِيُوسُفَ، قَبْلَ أَنْ يَجْتَمِعَا، وُجِدَتْ حُبْلَى مِنَ الرُّوحِ الْقُدُسِ.

 19 فَيُوسُفُ رَجُلُهَا إِذْ كَانَ بَارًّا، وَلَمْ يَشَأْ أَنْ يُشْهِرَهَا، أَرَادَ تَخْلِيَتَهَا سِرًّا.

20 وَلكِنْ فِيمَا هُوَ مُتَفَكِّرٌ فِي هذِهِ الأُمُورِ، إِذَا مَلاَكُ الرَّبِّ قَدْ ظَهَرَ لَهُ فِي حُلْمٍ قَائِلاً: «يَا يُوسُفُ ابْنَ دَاوُدَ، لاَ تَخَفْ أَنْ تَأْخُذَ مَرْيَمَ امْرَأَتَكَ. لأَنَّ الَّذِي حُبِلَ بِهِ فِيهَا هُوَ مِنَ الرُّوحِ الْقُدُسِ.

21 فَسَتَلِدُ ابْنًا وَتَدْعُو اسْمَهُ يَسُوعَ. لأَنَّهُ يُخَلِّصُ شَعْبَهُ مِنْ خَطَايَاهُمْ».

22 وَهذَا كُلُّهُ كَانَ لِكَيْ يَتِمَّ مَا قِيلَ مِنَ الرَّبِّ بِالنَّبِيِّ الْقَائِلِ:

23 «هُوَذَا الْعَذْرَاءُ تَحْبَلُ وَتَلِدُ ابْنًا، وَيَدْعُونَ اسْمَهُ عِمَّانُوئِيلَ» الَّذِي تَفْسِيرُهُ: اَللهُ مَعَنَا.

24 فَلَمَّا اسْتَيْقَظَ يُوسُفُ مِنَ النَّوْمِ فَعَلَ كَمَا أَمَرَهُ مَلاَكُ الرَّبِّ، وَأَخَذَ امْرَأَتَهُ.

25 وَلَمْ يَعْرِفْهَا حَتَّى وَلَدَتِ ابْنَهَا الْبِكْرَ. وَدَعَا اسْمَهُ يَسُوعَ.


Sayings of the Saints

If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
اذا كنت تحكم على (تدين) الناس، لن يبقى لك وقت لكي تحبهم
