Second Sunday after Easter

1st. Reading: Acts 3: 11-21

11 Now as the lame man who was healed held on to Peter and John, all the people ran together to them in the porch which is called Solomon’s, greatly amazed. 

12 So when Peter saw it, he responded to the people: “Men of Israel, why do you marvel at this? Or why look so intently at us, as though by our own power or godliness we had made this man walk? 

13The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified His Servant Jesus, whom you delivered up and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let Him go. 

14 But you denied the Holy One and the Just, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, 

15 and killed the Prince of life, whom God raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses. 

16 And His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and know. Yes, the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all. 

17Yet now, brethren, I know that you did it in ignorance, as did also your rulers. 

18 But those things which God foretold by the mouth of all His prophets, that the Christ would suffer, He has thus fulfilled. 

19 Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, 

20 and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, 

21 whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.

2nd.Reading : Ephesians 4 : 25-32

25 Therefore, putting away lying, “Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,” for we are members of one another. 

26 “Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, 

27 nor give place to the devil. 

28 Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need. 

29 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. 

30And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 

31 Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. 

32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you.

Gospel: John 21 : 1-14

1 After these things Jesus showed Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, and in this way He showed Himself: 

2 Simon Peter, Thomas called the Twin, Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two others of His disciples were together. 

3 Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.” They said to him, “We are going with you also.” They went out and immediately got into the boat, and that night they caught nothing. 

4 But when the morning had now come, Jesus stood on the shore; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. 

5 Then Jesus said to them, “Children, have you any food?” They answered Him, “No.” 

6And He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast, and now they were not able to draw it in because of the multitude of fish. 

7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment (for he had removed it), and plunged into the sea. 

8 But the other disciples came in the little boat (for they were not far from land, but about two hundred cubits), dragging the net with fish. 

9 Then, as soon as they had come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid on it, and bread. 

10 Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish which you have just caught.” 

11 Simon Peter went up and dragged the net to land, full of large fish, one hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not broken. 

12 Jesus said to them, “Come and eat breakfast.” Yet none of the disciples dared ask Him, “Who are You?”–knowing that it was the Lord. 

13 Jesus then came and took the bread and gave it to them, and likewise the fish. 

14 This is now the third time Jesus showed Himself to His disciples after He was raised from the dead.

الأحد الثاني بعد القيامة

القرائة الأولى : أعمال ٣ : ١١ – ٢١

11 وَبَيْنَمَا كَانَ الرَّجُلُ الأَعْرَجُ الَّذِي شُفِيَ مُتَمَسِّكًا بِبُطْرُسَ وَيُوحَنَّا، تَرَاكَضَ إِلَيْهِمْ جَمِيعُ الشَّعْبِ إِلَى الرِّوَاقِ الَّذِي يُقَالُ لَهُ «رِوَاقُ سُلَيْمَانَ» وَهُمْ مُنْدَهِشُونَ.

12 فَلَمَّا رَأَى بُطْرُسُ ذلِكَ أَجَابَ الشَّعْبَ: «أَيُّهَا الرِّجَالُ الإِسْرَائِيلِيُّونَ، مَا بَالُكُمْ تَتَعَجَّبُونَ مِنْ هذَا؟ وَلِمَاذَا تَشْخَصُونَ إِلَيْنَا، كَأَنَّنَا بِقُوَّتِنَا أَوْ تَقْوَانَا قَدْ جَعَلْنَا هذَا يَمْشِي؟

13 إِنَّ إِلهَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَإِسْحَاقَ وَيَعْقُوبَ، إِلهَ آبَائِنَا، مَجَّدَ فَتَاهُ يَسُوعَ، الَّذِي أَسْلَمْتُمُوهُ أَنْتُمْ وَأَنْكَرْتُمُوهُ أَمَامَ وَجْهِ بِيلاَطُسَ، وَهُوَ حَاكِمٌ بِإِطْلاَقِهِ.

14 وَلكِنْ أَنْتُمْ أَنْكَرْتُمُ الْقُدُّوسَ الْبَارَّ، وَطَلَبْتُمْ أَنْ يُوهَبَ لَكُمْ رَجُلٌ قَاتِلٌ.

15 وَرَئِيسُ الْحَيَاةِ قَتَلْتُمُوهُ، الَّذِي أَقَامَهُ اللهُ مِنَ الأَمْوَاتِ، وَنَحْنُ شُهُودٌ لِذلِكَ.

16 وَبِالإِيمَانِ بِاسْمِهِ، شَدَّدَ اسْمُهُ هذَا الَّذِي تَنْظُرُونَهُ وَتَعْرِفُونَهُ، وَالإِيمَانُ الَّذِي بِوَاسِطَتِهِ أَعْطَاهُ هذِهِ الصِّحَّةَ أَمَامَ جَمِيعِكُمْ.

17 «وَالآنَ أَيُّهَا الإِخْوَةُ، أَنَا أَعْلَمُ أَنَّكُمْ بِجَهَالَةٍ عَمِلْتُمْ، كَمَا رُؤَسَاؤُكُمْ أَيْضًا.

18 وَأَمَّا اللهُ فَمَا سَبَقَ وَأَنْبَأَ بِهِ بِأَفْوَاهِ جَمِيعِ أَنْبِيَائِهِ، أَنْ يَتَأَلَّمَ الْمَسِيحُ، قَدْ تَمَّمَهُ هكَذَا.

19 فَتُوبُوا وَارْجِعُوا لِتُمْحَى خَطَايَاكُمْ، لِكَيْ تَأْتِيَ أَوْقَاتُ الْفَرَجِ مِنْ وَجْهِ الرَّبِّ.

20 وَيُرْسِلَ يَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحَ الْمُبَشَّرَ بِهِ لَكُمْ قَبْلُ.

21 الَّذِي يَنْبَغِي أَنَّ السَّمَاءَ تَقْبَلُهُ، إِلَى أَزْمِنَةِ رَدِّ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ، الَّتِي تَكَلَّمَ عَنْهَا اللهُ بِفَمِ جَمِيعِ أَنْبِيَائِهِ الْقِدِّيسِينَ مُنْذُ الدَّهْرِ.

 القرائة الثانية  : أفسس ٤: ٢٥ – ٣٢

25 لِذلِكَ اطْرَحُوا عَنْكُمُ الْكَذِبَ، وَتَكَلَّمُوا بِالصِّدْقِ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ مَعَ قَرِيبِهِ، لأَنَّنَا بَعْضَنَا أَعْضَاءُ الْبَعْضِ.

26 اِغْضَبُوا وَلاَ تُخْطِئُوا. لاَ تَغْرُبِ الشَّمْسُ عَلَى غَيْظِكُمْ،

27 وَلاَ تُعْطُوا إِبْلِيسَ مَكَانًا.

28 لاَ يَسْرِقِ السَّارِقُ فِي مَا بَعْدُ، بَلْ بِالْحَرِيِّ يَتْعَبُ عَامِلاً الصَّالِحَ بِيَدَيْهِ، لِيَكُونَ لَهُ أَنْ يُعْطِيَ مَنْ لَهُ احْتِيَاجٌ.

29 لاَ تَخْرُجْ كَلِمَةٌ رَدِيَّةٌ مِنْ أَفْوَاهِكُمْ، بَلْ كُلُّ مَا كَانَ صَالِحًا لِلْبُنْيَانِ، حَسَبَ الْحَاجَةِ، كَيْ يُعْطِيَ نِعْمَةً لِلسَّامِعِينَ.

30 وَلاَ تُحْزِنُوا رُوحَ اللهِ الْقُدُّوسَ الَّذِي بِهِ خُتِمْتُمْ لِيَوْمِ الْفِدَاءِ.

31 لِيُرْفَعْ مِنْ بَيْنِكُمْ كُلُّ مَرَارَةٍ وَسَخَطٍ وَغَضَبٍ وَصِيَاحٍ وَتَجْدِيفٍ مَعَ كُلِّ خُبْثٍ.

32 وَكُونُوا لُطَفَاءَ بَعْضُكُمْ نَحْوَ بَعْضٍ، شَفُوقِينَ مُتَسَامِحِينَ كَمَا سَامَحَكُمُ اللهُ أَيْضًا فِي الْمَسِيحِ.

إنجيل يوحنا  ٢١ – ١ – ١٤

1كَانَ سِمْعَانُ بُطْرُسُ، وَتُومَا الَّذِي يُقَالُ لَهُ التَّوْأَمُ، وَنَثَنَائِيلُ الَّذِي مِنْ قَانَا الْجَلِيلِ، وَابْنَا زَبْدِي، وَاثْنَانِ آخَرَانِ مِنْ تَلاَمِيذِهِ مَعَ بَعْضِهِمْ.

3 قَالَ لَهُمْ سِمْعَانُ بُطْرُسُ: «أَنَا أَذْهَبُ لأَتَصَيَّدَ». قَالُوا لَهُ: «نَذْهَبُ نَحْنُ أَيْضًا مَعَكَ». فَخَرَجُوا وَدَخَلُوا السَّفِينَةَ لِلْوَقْتِ. وَفِي تِلْكَ اللَّيْلَةِ لَمْ يُمْسِكُوا شَيْئًا.

4 وَلَمَّا كَانَ الصُّبْحُ، وَقَفَ يَسُوعُ عَلَى الشَّاطِئِ. وَلكِنَّ التَّلاَمِيذَ لَمْ يَكُونُوا يَعْلَمُونَ أَنَّهُ يَسُوعُ.

5 فَقَالَ لَهُمْ يَسُوعُ: «يَا غِلْمَانُ أَلَعَلَّ عِنْدَكُمْ إِدَامًا؟». أَجَابُوهُ: «لاَ! »

6 فَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «أَلْقُوا الشَّبَكَةَ إِلَى جَانِبِ السَّفِينَةِ الأَيْمَنِ فَتَجِدُوا». فَأَلْقَوْا، وَلَمْ يَعُودُوا يَقْدِرُونَ أَنْ يَجْذِبُوهَا مِنْ كَثْرَةِ السَّمَكِ.

7 فَقَالَ ذلِكَ التِّلْمِيذُ الَّذِي كَانَ يَسُوعُ يُحِبُّهُ لِبُطْرُسَ: «هُوَ الرَّبُّ!». فَلَمَّا سَمِعَ سِمْعَانُ بُطْرُسُ أَنَّهُ الرَّبُّ، اتَّزَرَ بِثَوْبِهِ، لأَنَّهُ كَانَ عُرْيَانًا، وَأَلْقَى نَفْسَهُ فِي الْبَحْرِ.

8 وَأَمَّا التَّلاَمِيذُ الآخَرُونَ فَجَاءُوا بِالسَّفِينَةِ، لأَنَّهُمْ لَمْ يَكُونُوا بَعِيدِينَ عَنِ الأَرْضِ إِلاَّ نَحْوَ مِئَتَيْ ذِرَاعٍ، وَهُمْ يَجُرُّونَ شَبَكَةَ السَّمَكِ.

9 فَلَمَّا خَرَجُوا إِلَى الأَرْضِ نَظَرُوا جَمْرًا مَوْضُوعًا وَسَمَكًا مَوْضُوعًا عَلَيْهِ وَخُبْزًا.

10 قَالَ لَهُمْ يَسُوعُ: «قَدِّمُوا مِنَ السَّمَكِ الَّذِي أَمْسَكْتُمُ الآنَ».

11 فَصَعِدَ سِمْعَانُ بُطْرُسُ وَجَذَبَ الشَّبَكَةَ إِلَى الأَرْضِ، مُمْتَلِئَةً سَمَكًا كَبِيرًا، مِئَةً وَثَلاَثًا وَخَمْسِينَ. وَمَعْ هذِهِ الْكَثْرَةِ لَمْ تَتَخَرَّقِ الشَّبَكَةُ.

12 قَالَ لَهُمْ يَسُوعُ: «هَلُمُّوا تَغَدَّوْا!». وَلَمْ يَجْسُرْ أَحَدٌ مِنَ التَّلاَمِيذِ أَنْ يَسْأَلَهُ: مَنْ أَنْتَ؟ إِذْ كَانُوا يَعْلَمُونَ أَنَّهُ الرَّبُّ.

13 ثُمَّ جَاءَ يَسُوعُ وَأَخَذَ الْخُبْزَ وَأَعْطَاهُمْ وَكَذلِكَ السَّمَكَ.

14 هذِهِ مَرَّةٌ ثَالِثَةٌ ظَهَرَ يَسُوعُ لِتَلاَمِيذِهِ بَعْدَمَا قَامَ مِنَ الأَمْوَاتِ.

Sayings of the Saints

Love the sinners and detest their deeds. Do not reject them for their lapses, for you may be tried with their trials.
أحب الخطاة وامقت أعمالهم ولا ترذلهم من أجل زلاتهم، لئلا تمتحن بما امتحنوا به
