New Sunday

1st. Reading: 1 Peter 1: 13-25

13 Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 

14 as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; 

15 but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 

16 because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”

17 And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear; 

18 knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, 

19 but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. 

20 He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you 

21who through Him believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God. 

22 Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, 

23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, 

24 because “All flesh is as grass, And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, And its flower falls away, 

25 But the word of the Lord endures forever.” Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.

2nd.Reading : Ephesians 4 : 17-24

17 This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, 

18 having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; 

19who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. 

20 But you have not so learned Christ,

21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: 

22 that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, 

23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 

24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.

Gospel: John 20 : 19-29

19 Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 

20 When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. 

21 So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.”

22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 

23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.” 

24 Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came.

25 The other disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.” So he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.” 

26 And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, “Peace to you!” 

27 Then He said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.” 

28 And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!” 

29 Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

الأحد الجديد

القرائة الأولى : 1بطرس ١ : ١٣ – ٢٥

 13 لِذلِكَ مَنْطِقُوا أَحْقَاءَ ذِهْنِكُمْ صَاحِينَ، فَأَلْقُوا رَجَاءَكُمْ بِالتَّمَامِ عَلَى النِّعْمَةِ الَّتِي يُؤْتَى بِهَا إِلَيْكُمْ عِنْدَ اسْتِعْلاَنِ يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ.

14 كَأَوْلاَدِ الطَّاعَةِ، لاَ تُشَاكِلُوا شَهَوَاتِكُمُ السَّابِقَةَ فِي جَهَالَتِكُمْ،

15 بَلْ نَظِيرَ الْقُدُّوسِ الَّذِي دَعَاكُمْ، كُونُوا أَنْتُمْ أَيْضًا قِدِّيسِينَ فِي كُلِّ سِيرَةٍ.

16 لأَنَّهُ مَكْتُوبٌ: «كُونُوا قِدِّيسِينَ لأَنِّي أَنَا قُدُّوسٌ».

17 وَإِنْ كُنْتُمْ تَدْعُونَ أَبًا الَّذِي يَحْكُمُ بِغَيْرِ مُحَابَاةٍ حَسَبَ عَمَلِ كُلِّ وَاحِدٍ، فَسِيرُوا زَمَانَ غُرْبَتِكُمْ بِخَوْفٍ،

18 عَالِمِينَ أَنَّكُمُ افْتُدِيتُمْ لاَ بِأَشْيَاءَ تَفْنَى، بِفِضَّةٍ أَوْ ذَهَبٍ، مِنْ سِيرَتِكُمُ الْبَاطِلَةِ الَّتِي تَقَلَّدْتُمُوهَا مِنَ الآبَاءِ،

19 بَلْ بِدَمٍ كَرِيمٍ، كَمَا مِنْ حَمَل بِلاَ عَيْبٍ وَلاَ دَنَسٍ، دَمِ الْمَسِيحِ،

20 مَعْرُوفًا سَابِقًا قَبْلَ تَأْسِيسِ الْعَالَمِ، وَلكِنْ قَدْ أُظْهِرَ فِي الأَزْمِنَةِ الأَخِيرَةِ مِنْ أَجْلِكُمْ،

21 أَنْتُمُ الَّذِينَ بِهِ تُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللهِ الَّذِي أَقَامَهُ مِنَ الأَمْوَاتِ وَأَعْطَاهُ مَجْدًا، حَتَّى إِنَّ إِيمَانَكُمْ وَرَجَاءَكُمْ هُمَا فِي اللهِ.

22 طَهِّرُوا نُفُوسَكُمْ فِي طَاعَةِ الْحَقِّ بِالرُّوحِ لِلْمَحَبَّةِ الأَخَوِيَّةِ الْعَدِيمَةِ الرِّيَاءِ، فَأَحِبُّوا بَعْضُكُمْ بَعْضًا مِنْ قَلْبٍ طَاهِرٍ بِشِدَّةٍ.

23 مَوْلُودِينَ ثَانِيَةً، لاَ مِنْ زَرْعٍ يَفْنَى، بَلْ مِمَّا لاَ يَفْنَى، بِكَلِمَةِ اللهِ الْحَيَّةِ الْبَاقِيَةِ إِلَى الأَبَدِ.

24 لأَنَّ: «كُلَّ جَسَدٍ كَعُشْبٍ، وَكُلَّ مَجْدِ إِنْسَانٍ كَزَهْرِ عُشْبٍ. الْعُشْبُ يَبِسَ وَزَهْرُهُ سَقَطَ،

25 وَأَمَّا كَلِمَةُ الرَّبِّ فَتَثْبُتُ إِلَى الأَبَدِ». وَهذِهِ هِيَ الْكَلِمَةُ الَّتِي بُشِّرْتُمْ بِهَا.

 القرائة الثانية  : أفسس ٤ : ١٧ – ٢٤

  17 فَأَقُولُ هذَا وَأَشْهَدُ فِي الرَّبِّ: أَنْ لاَ تَسْلُكُوا فِي مَا بَعْدُ كَمَا يَسْلُكُ سَائِرُ الأُمَمِ أَيْضًا بِبُطْلِ ذِهْنِهِمْ،

18 إِذْ هُمْ مُظْلِمُو الْفِكْرِ، وَمُتَجَنِّبُونَ عَنْ حَيَاةِ اللهِ لِسَبَبِ الْجَهْلِ الَّذِي فِيهِمْ بِسَبَبِ غِلاَظَةِ قُلُوبِهِمْ.

 19 اَلَّذِينَ ­إِذْ هُمْ قَدْ فَقَدُوا الْحِسَّ­ أَسْلَمُوا نُفُوسَهُمْ لِلدَّعَارَةِ لِيَعْمَلُوا كُلَّ نَجَاسَةٍ فِي الطَّمَعِ.

20 وَأَمَّا أَنْتُمْ فَلَمْ تَتَعَلَّمُوا الْمَسِيحَ هكَذَا،

21 إِنْ كُنْتُمْ قَدْ سَمِعْتُمُوهُ وَعُلِّمْتُمْ فِيهِ كَمَا هُوَ حَقٌّ فِي يَسُوعَ،

22 أَنْ تَخْلَعُوا مِنْ جِهَةِ التَّصَرُّفِ السَّابِقِ الإِنْسَانَ الْعَتِيقَ الْفَاسِدَ بِحَسَبِ شَهَوَاتِ الْغُرُورِ،

23 وَتَتَجَدَّدُوا بِرُوحِ ذِهْنِكُمْ،

24 وَتَلْبَسُوا الإِنْسَانَ الْجَدِيدَ الْمَخْلُوقَ بِحَسَبِ اللهِ فِي الْبِرِّ وَقَدَاسَةِ الْحَقِّ.

إنجيل يوحنا  ٢٠ – ١٩ – ٢٩

 19 وَلَمَّا كَانَتْ عَشِيَّةُ ذلِكَ الْيَوْمِ، وَهُوَ أَوَّلُ الأُسْبُوعِ، وَكَانَتِ الأَبْوَابُ مُغَلَّقَةً حَيْثُ كَانَ التَّلاَمِيذُ مُجْتَمِعِينَ لِسَبَبِ الْخَوْفِ مِنَ الْيَهُودِ، جَاءَ يَسُوعُ وَوَقَفَ فِي الْوَسْطِ، وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «سَلاَمٌ لَكُمْ! »

 20 وَلَمَّا قَالَ هذَا أَرَاهُمْ يَدَيْهِ وَجَنْبَهُ، فَفَرِحَ التَّلاَمِيذُ إِذْ رَأَوْا الرَّبَّ.

21 فَقَالَ لَهُمْ يَسُوعُ أَيْضًا: «سَلاَمٌ لَكُمْ! كَمَا أَرْسَلَنِي الآبُ أُرْسِلُكُمْ أَنَا.» 

22 وَلَمَّا قَالَ هذَا نَفَخَ وَقَالَ لَهُمُ: «اقْبَلُوا الرُّوحَ الْقُدُسَ.

23 مَنْ غَفَرْتُمْ خَطَايَاهُ تُغْفَرُ لَهُ، وَمَنْ أَمْسَكْتُمْ خَطَايَاهُ أُمْسِكَتْ.» 

24 أَمَّا تُومَا، أَحَدُ الاثْنَيْ عَشَرَ، الَّذِي يُقَالُ لَهُ التَّوْأَمُ، فَلَمْ يَكُنْ مَعَهُمْ حِينَ جَاءَ يَسُوعُ.

25 فَقَالَ لَهُ التَّلاَمِيذُ الآخَرُونَ: «قَدْ رَأَيْنَا الرَّبَّ!» فَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «إِنْ لَمْ أُبْصِرْ فِي يَدَيْهِ أَثَرَ الْمَسَامِيرِ، وَأَضَعْ إِصْبِعِي فِي أَثَرِ الْمَسَامِيرِ، وَأَضَعْ يَدِي فِي جَنْبِهِ، لاَ أُومِنْ. »

26 وَبَعْدَ ثَمَانِيَةِ أَيَّامٍ كَانَ تَلاَمِيذُهُ أَيْضًا دَاخِلاً وَتُومَا مَعَهُمْ. فَجَاءَ يَسُوعُ وَالأَبْوَابُ مُغَلَّقَةٌ، وَوَقَفَ فِي الْوَسْطِ وَقَالَ: «سَلاَمٌ لَكُمْ!»

27 ثُمَّ قَالَ لِتُومَا: «هَاتِ إِصْبِعَكَ إِلَى هُنَا وَأَبْصِرْ يَدَيَّ، وَهَاتِ يَدَكَ وَضَعْهَا فِي جَنْبِي، وَلاَ تَكُنْ غَيْرَ مُؤْمِنٍ بَلْ مُؤْمِنًا.»

28 أَجَابَ تُومَا وَقَالَ لَهُ: «رَبِّي وَإِلهِي! »

29 قَالَ لَهُ يَسُوعُ: «لأَنَّكَ رَأَيْتَنِي يَا تُومَا آمَنْتَ! طُوبَى لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَلَمْ يَرَوْا. »

Sayings of the Saints

The fathers have declared the singing of psalms to be a weapon, prayer to be a wall, and honest tears to be a bath.قال الأباء عن ترنيم المزامير بأنها سلاح والصلاة انها حائط والدموع الصادقة أنها إغتسال
