Eighth Sunday after Easter

1st Reading: Acts 5 : 12-21

12 And through the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were done among the people. And they were all with one accord in Solomon’s Porch.

13 Yet none of the rest dared join them, but the people esteemed them highly.

14 And believers were increasingly added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women,

15 so that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them.

16 Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed.

17 Then the high priest rose up, and all those who were with him (which is the sect of the Sadducees), and they were filled with indignation,

18 and laid their hands on the apostles and put them in the common prison.

19 But at night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them out, and said,

20 “Go, stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this life.”

21 And when they heard that, they entered the temple early in the morning and taught. But the high priest and those with him came and called the council together, with all the elders of the children of Israel, and sent to the prison to have them brought.

2nd.  Reading: Romans 6 : 1-14

1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound?

2Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it?

3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?

4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

5 For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection,

6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.

7 For he who has died has been freed from sin.

8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him,

9 knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him.

10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.

11 Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts.

13 And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.

14 For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.

Gospel: John 6 : 25-35

25 Immediately she came in with haste to the king and asked, saying, “I want you to give me at once the head of John the Baptist on a platter.”

26 And the king was exceedingly sorry; yet, because of the oaths and because of those who sat with him, he did not want to refuse her.

27 Immediately the king sent an executioner and commanded his head to be brought. And he went and beheaded him in prison,

28 brought his head on a platter, and gave it to the girl; and the girl gave it to her mother.

29 When his disciples heard of it, they came and took away his corpse and laid it in a tomb.

30 Then the apostles gathered to Jesus and told Him all things, both what they had done and what they had taught.

31 And He said to them, “Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” For there were many coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.

32 So they departed to a deserted place in the boat by themselves.

33 But the multitudes saw them departing, and many knew Him and ran there on foot from all the cities. They arrived before them and came together to Him.

34 And Jesus, when He came out, saw a great multitude and was moved with compassion for them, because they were like sheep not having a shepherd. So He began to teach them many things.

35 When the day was now far spent, His disciples came to Him and said, “This is a deserted place, and already the hour is late.

الأحد الثامن بعد عيد القيامة

القرائة الأولى : أعمال 5: 12-21

12 وَجَرَتْ عَلَى أَيْدِي الرُّسُلِ آيَاتٌ وَعَجَائِبُ كَثِيرَةٌ فِي الشَّعْبِ. وَكَانَ الْجَمِيعُ بِنَفْسٍ وَاحِدَةٍ فِي رِوَاقِ سُلَيْمَانَ.

13 وَأَمَّا الآخَرُونَ فَلَمْ يَكُنْ أَحَدٌ مِنْهُمْ يَجْسُرُ أَنْ يَلْتَصِقَ بِهِمْ، لكِنْ كَانَ الشَّعْبُ يُعَظِّمُهُمْ.

14 وَكَانَ مُؤْمِنُونَ يَنْضَمُّونَ لِلرَّبِّ أَكْثَرَ، جَمَاهِيرُ مِنْ رِجَال وَنِسَاءٍ،

15 حَتَّى إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا يَحْمِلُونَ الْمَرْضَى خَارِجًا فِي الشَّوَارِعِ وَيَضَعُونَهُمْ عَلَى فُرُشٍ وَأَسِرَّةٍ، حَتَّى إِذَا جَاءَ بُطْرُسُ يُخَيِّمُ وَلَوْ ظِلُّهُ عَلَى أَحَدٍ مِنْهُمْ.

16 وَاجْتَمَعَ جُمْهُورُ الْمُدُنِ الْمُحِيطَةِ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ حَامِلِينَ مَرْضَى وَمُعَذَّبِينَ مِنْ أَرْوَاحٍ نَجِسَةٍ، وَكَانُوا يُبْرَأُونَ جَمِيعُهُمْ.

17 فَقَامَ رَئِيسُ الْكَهَنَةِ وَجَمِيعُ الَّذِينَ مَعَهُ، الَّذِينَ هُمْ شِيعَةُ الصَّدُّوقِيِّينَ، وَامْتَلأُوا غَيْرَةً

18 فَأَلْقَوْا أَيْدِيَهُمْ عَلَى الرُّسُلِ وَوَضَعُوهُمْ فِي حَبْسِ الْعَامَّةِ.

19 وَلكِنَّ مَلاَكَ الرَّبِّ فِي اللَّيْلِ فَتَحَ أَبْوَابَ السِّجْنِ وَأَخْرَجَهُمْ وَقَالَ:

20  »اذْهَبُوا قِفُوا وَكَلِّمُوا الشَّعْبَ فِي الْهَيْكَلِ بِجَمِيعِ كَلاَمِ هذِهِ الْحَيَاةِ.«

21 فَلَمَّا سَمِعُوا دَخَلُوا الْهَيْكَلَ نَحْوَ الصُّبْحِ وَجَعَلُوا يُعَلِّمُونَ. ثُمَّ جَاءَ رَئِيسُ الْكَهَنَةِ وَالَّذِينَ مَعَهُ، وَدَعَوُا الْمَجْمَعَ وَكُلَّ مَشْيَخَةِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ، فَأَرْسَلُوا إِلَى الْحَبْسِ لِيُؤْتَى بِهِمْ.

22 وَلكِنَّ الْخُدَّامَ لَمَّا جَاءُوا لَمْ يَجِدُوهُمْ فِي السِّجْنِ، فَرَجَعُوا وَأَخْبَرُوا

23 قَائِلِينَ: «إِنَّنَا وَجَدْنَا الْحَبْسَ مُغْلَقًا بِكُلِّ حِرْصٍ، وَالْحُرَّاسَ وَاقِفِينَ خَارِجًا أَمَامَ الأَبْوَابِ، وَلكِنْ لَمَّا فَتَحْنَا لَمْ نَجِدْ فِي الدَّاخِلِ أَحَدًا«.

24 فَلَمَّا سَمِعَ الْكَاهِنُ وَقَائِدُ جُنْدِ الْهَيْكَلِ وَرُؤَسَاءُ الْكَهَنَةِ هذِهِ الأَقْوَالَ، ارْتَابُوا مِنْ جِهَتِهِمْ: مَا عَسَى أَنْ يَصِيرَ هذَا؟

25 ثُمَّ جَاءَ وَاحِدٌ وَأَخْبَرَهُمْ قَائِلاً: «هُوَذَا الرِّجَالُ الَّذِينَ وَضَعْتُمُوهُمْ فِي السِّجْنِ هُمْ فِي الْهَيْكَلِ وَاقِفِينَ يُعَلِّمُونَ الشَّعْبَ! «.

26 حِينَئِذٍ مَضَى قَائِدُ الْجُنْدِ مَعَ الْخُدَّامِ، فَأَحْضَرَهُمْ لاَ بِعُنْفٍ، لأَنَّهُمْ كَانُوا يَخَافُونَ الشَّعْبَ لِئَلاَّ يُرْجَمُوا.

27 فَلَمَّا أَحْضَرُوهُمْ أَوْقَفُوهُمْ فِي الْمَجْمَعِ. فَسَأَلَهُمْ رَئِيسُ الْكَهَنَةِ

28 قِائِلاً: «أَمَا أَوْصَيْنَاكُمْ وَصِيَّةً أَنْ لاَ تُعَلِّمُوا بِهذَا الاسْمِ؟ وَهَا أَنْتُمْ قَدْ مَلأْتُمْ أُورُشَلِيمَ بِتَعْلِيمِكُمْ، وَتُرِيدُونَ أَنْ تَجْلِبُوا عَلَيْنَا دَمَ هذَا الإِنْسَانِ«.

القرائة الثانية : رومية 6 : 1-14

1 فَمَاذَا نَقُولُ؟ أَنَبْقَى فِي الْخَطِيَّةِ لِكَيْ تَكْثُرَ النِّعْمَةُ؟

2 حَاشَا! نَحْنُ الَّذِينَ مُتْنَا عَنِ الْخَطِيَّةِ، كَيْفَ نَعِيشُ بَعْدُ فِيهَا؟

3 أَمْ تَجْهَلُونَ أَنَّنَا كُلَّ مَنِ اعْتَمَدَ لِيَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ اعْتَمَدْنَا لِمَوْتِهِ،

4 فَدُفِنَّا مَعَهُ بِالْمَعْمُودِيَّةِ لِلْمَوْتِ، حَتَّى كَمَا أُقِيمَ الْمَسِيحُ مِنَ الأَمْوَاتِ، بِمَجْدِ الآبِ، هكَذَا نَسْلُكُ نَحْنُ أَيْضًا فِي جِدَّةِ الْحَيَاةِ؟

5 لأَنَّهُ إِنْ كُنَّا قَدْ صِرْنَا مُتَّحِدِينَ مَعَهُ بِشِبْهِ مَوْتِهِ، نَصِيرُ أَيْضًا بِقِيَامَتِهِ.

6 عَالِمِينَ هذَا: أَنَّ إِنْسَانَنَا الْعَتِيقَ قَدْ صُلِبَ مَعَهُ لِيُبْطَلَ جَسَدُ الْخَطِيَّةِ، كَيْ لاَ نَعُودَ نُسْتَعْبَدُ أَيْضًا لِلْخَطِيَّةِ.

7 لأَنَّ الَّذِي مَاتَ قَدْ تَبَرَّأَ مِنَ الْخَطِيَّةِ.

8 فَإِنْ كُنَّا قَدْ مُتْنَا مَعَ الْمَسِيحِ، نُؤْمِنُ أَنَّنَا سَنَحْيَا أَيْضًا مَعَهُ.

9 عَالِمِينَ أَنَّ الْمَسِيحَ بَعْدَمَا أُقِيمَ مِنَ الأَمْوَاتِ لاَ يَمُوتُ أَيْضًا. لاَ يَسُودُ عَلَيْهِ الْمَوْتُ بَعْدُ.

10 لأَنَّ الْمَوْتَ الَّذِي مَاتَهُ قَدْ مَاتَهُ لِلْخَطِيَّةِ مَرَّةً وَاحِدَةً، وَالْحَيَاةُ الَّتِي يَحْيَاهَا فَيَحْيَاهَا للهِ.

11 كَذلِكَ أَنْتُمْ أَيْضًا احْسِبُوا أَنْفُسَكُمْ أَمْوَاتًا عَنِ الْخَطِيَّةِ، وَلكِنْ أَحْيَاءً للهِ بِالْمَسِيحِ يَسُوعَ رَبِّنَا.

12 إِذًا لاَ تَمْلِكَنَّ الْخَطِيَّةُ فِي جَسَدِكُمُ الْمَائِتِ لِكَيْ تُطِيعُوهَا فِي شَهَوَاتِهِ،

13 وَلاَ تُقَدِّمُوا أَعْضَاءَكُمْ آلاَتِ إِثْمٍ لِلْخَطِيَّةِ، بَلْ قَدِّمُوا ذَوَاتِكُمْ للهِ كَأَحْيَاءٍ مِنَ الأَمْوَاتِ وَأَعْضَاءَكُمْ آلاَتِ بِرّ للهِ.

14 فَإِنَّ الْخَطِيَّةَ لَنْ تَسُودَكُمْ، لأَنَّكُمْ لَسْتُمْ تَحْتَ النَّامُوسِ بَلْ تَحْتَ النِّعْمَةِ.

قرائة الأنجيل : يوحنا 6 : 25-35

25 وَلَمَّا وَجَدُوهُ فِي عَبْرِ الْبَحْرِ، قَالُوا لَهُ: «يَا مُعَلِّمُ، مَتَى صِرْتَ هُنَا؟»

26 أَجَابَهُمْ يَسُوعُ وَقَالَ: «الْحَقَّ الْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: أَنْتُمْ تَطْلُبُونَنِي لَيْسَ لأَنَّكُمْ رَأَيْتُمْ آيَاتٍ، بَلْ لأَنَّكُمْ أَكَلْتُمْ مِنَ الْخُبْزِ فَشَبِعْتُمْ.

27 اِعْمَلُوا لاَ لِلطَّعَامِ الْبَائِدِ، بَلْ لِلطَّعَامِ الْبَاقِي لِلْحَيَاةِ الأَبَدِيَّةِ الَّذِي يُعْطِيكُمُ ابْنُ الإِنْسَانِ، لأَنَّ هذَا اللهُ الآبُ قَدْ خَتَمَهُ».

28 فَقَالُوا لَهُ: «مَاذَا نَفْعَلُ حَتَّى نَعْمَلَ أَعْمَالَ اللهِ؟»

29 أَجَابَ يَسُوعُ وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «هذَا هُوَ عَمَلُ اللهِ: أَنْ تُؤْمِنُوا بِالَّذِي هُوَ أَرْسَلَهُ».

30 فَقَالُوا لَهُ: «فَأَيَّةَ آيَةٍ تَصْنَعُ لِنَرَى وَنُؤْمِنَ بِكَ؟ مَاذَا تَعْمَلُ؟

31 آبَاؤُنَا أَكَلُوا الْمَنَّ فِي الْبَرِّيَّةِ، كَمَا هُوَ مَكْتُوبٌ: أَنَّهُ أَعْطَاهُمْ خُبْزًا مِنَ السَّمَاءِ لِيَأْكُلُوا».

32 فَقَالَ لَهُمْ يَسُوعُ: «الْحَقَّ الْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: لَيْسَ مُوسَى أَعْطَاكُمُ الْخُبْزَ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ، بَلْ أَبِي يُعْطِيكُمُ الْخُبْزَ الْحَقِيقِيَّ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ،

33 لأَنَّ خُبْزَ اللهِ هُوَ النَّازِلُ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ الْوَاهِبُ حَيَاةً لِلْعَالَمِ».

34 فَقَالُوا لَهُ: «يَا سَيِّدُ، أَعْطِنَا فِي كُلِّ حِينٍ هذَا الْخُبْزَ».

35 فَقَالَ لَهُمْ يَسُوعُ: «أَنَا هُوَ خُبْزُ الْحَيَاةِ. مَنْ يُقْبِلْ إِلَيَّ فَلاَ يَجُوعُ، وَمَنْ يُؤْمِنْ بِي فَلاَ يَعْطَشُ أَبَدًا.

Sayings of the Saints

Submission to the will of God means to bear the sickness and pain without complaining, being certain that sickness has no more dominion over me than nailing my feet and my hands but my soul will stay strong through Christ.
التسليم لإرادة الله يعنى احتمال المرض والألم بدون تذمر ، متأكدا أن المرض ليس له سلطان علىّ أكثر من تسمير رجلى ويدى ولكن روحى ستظل قوية بالمسيح
