إنجيل القدّيس لوقا .55-46:1

قالَتْ مَرْيَم: تُعَظِّمُ نَفسِيَ الرَّبّ
وتَبْتَهِجُ رُوحِي بِٱللهِ مُخَلِّصِي
لأَنَّهُ نَظرَ إِلى تَواضُعِ أَمَتِهِ. فَهَا مُنْذُ الآنَ تُطَوِّبُنِي جَمِيعُ الأَجْيَال
لأَنَّ القَدِيرَ صَنَعَ بي عَظَائِم، وٱسْمُهُ قُدُّوس
ورَحْمَتُهُ إِلى أَجْيَالٍ وأَجْيَالٍ لِلَّذِينَ يَتَّقُونَهُ
صَنَعَ عِزًّا بِسَاعِدِهِ، وشَتَّتَ المُتَكبِّرينَ بأَفْكَارِ قُلُوبِهِم
أَنْزَلَ المُقْتَدِرينَ عنِ العُرُوش، ورَفَعَ المُتَواضِعِين
أَشْبَعَ الجِيَاعَ خَيْرَاتٍ، وصَرَفَ الأَغْنِياءَ فَارِغِين
عَضَدَ إِسْرائِيلَ فَتَاهُ ذَاكِرًا رَحْمَتَهُ
لإِبْراهِيمَ ونَسْلِهِ إِلى الأَبَد،كمَا كلَّمَ آبَاءَنا

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 1:39-56. 
Mary set out in those days and traveled to the hill country in haste to a town of Judah, 
where she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. 
When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth, filled with the holy Spirit, 
cried out in a loud voice and said, “Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. 
And how does this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
For at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy. 
Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled.”
And Mary said: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;
my spirit rejoices in God my savior. 
For he has looked upon his handmaid’s lowliness; behold, from now on will all ages call me blessed.
The Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name.
His mercy is from age to age to those who fear him.
He has shown might with his arm, dispersed the arrogant of mind and heart.
He has thrown down the rulers from their thrones but lifted up the lowly.
The hungry he has filled with good things; the rich he has sent away empty.
He has helped Israel his servant, remembering his mercy,
according to his promise to our fathers, to Abraham and to his descendants forever.”
Mary remained with her about three months and then returned to her home.

إنجيل القدّيس لوقا .5-1:12

في تِلْكَ الأَثْنَاء، ٱحْتَشَدَتْ عَشَرَاتُ الأُلُوفِ مِنَ الجُمُوع، حَتَّى دَاسَ بَعْضُهُم بَعْضًا، فَبَدَأَ يَسُوعُ يَقُولُ أَوَّلاً لِتَلامِيذِهِ: إِحْذَرُوا لأَنْفُسِكُم مِنْ خَميرِ الفَرِّيسِيِّين، الَّذي هُوَ الرِّيَاء
فَمَا مِنْ مَحْجُوبٍ إِلاَّ سَيُكْشَف، وَمَا مِنْ خَفِيٍّ إِلاَّ سَيُعْرَف
لِذلِكَ فَكُلُّ مَا قُلْتُمُوهُ في الظُّلْمَةِ سَيُسْمَعُ في النُّور، وَمَا تَكَلَّمْتُم بِهِ هَمْسًا في المَخَادِعِ سَيُنادَى بِهِ عَلَى السُّطُوح
وَأَقُولُ لَكُم، يَا أَحِبَّائِي: لا تَخَافُوا مِمَّنْ يَقْتُلُونَ الجَسَد، وَبَعْدَ ذلِكَ لا يَقْدِرُونَ أَنْ يَفْعَلُوا أَكْثَر
بَلْ أُبَيِّنُ لَكُم مِمَّنْ تَخَافُون: خَافُوا مِمَّنْ، إِذَا قَتَل، لَهُ سُلْطانٌ أَنْ يُلْقِيَ في جَهَنَّم. نَعَم، أَقُولُ لَكُم، مِنْ هذا خَافُوا

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 18:21-35.19:1. 
Peter approached Jesus and asked him, «Lord, if my brother sins against me, how often must I forgive him? As many as seven times?» 
Jesus answered, “I say to you, not seven times but seventy-seven times.
That is why the kingdom of heaven may be likened to a king who decided to settle accounts with his servants. 
When he began the accounting, a debtor was brought before him who owed him a huge amount.
Since he had no way of paying it back, his master ordered him to be sold, along with his wife, his children, and all his property, in payment of the debt. 
At that, the servant fell down, did him homage, and said, ‘Be patient with me, and I will pay you back in full.’
Moved with compassion the master of that servant let him go and forgave him the loan. 
When that servant had left, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a much smaller amount. He seized him and started to choke him, demanding, ‘Pay back what you owe.’
Falling to his knees, his fellow servant begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I will pay you back.’ 
But he refused. Instead, he had him put in prison until he paid back the debt. 
Now when his fellow servants saw what had happened, they were deeply disturbed, and went to their master and reported the whole affair.
His master summoned him and said to him, ‘You wicked servant! I forgave you your entire debt because you begged me to. 
Should you not have had pity on your fellow servant, as I had pity on you?’ 
Then in anger his master handed him over to the torturers until he should pay back the whole debt.
So will my heavenly Father do to you, unless each of you forgives his brother from his heart.”
When Jesus finished these words, he left Galilee and went to the district of Judea across the Jordan.

إنجيل القدّيس متّى .26-23:23

قالَ الرَبُّ يَسُوع: «أَلوَيلُ لَكُم، أَيُّهَا الكَتَبَةُ والفَرِّيسِيُّونَ المُرَاؤُون! لأَنَّكُم تُؤَدُّونَ عُشُورَ النَّعْنَعِ والشُّومَارِ والكَمُّون، وقَدْ أَهْمَلْتُم أَهَمَّ مَا في التَّورَاة، أَيِ العَدْلَ والرَّحْمَةَ والأَمَانَة. وكَانَ عَلَيكُم أَنْ تَعْمَلُوا بِهذِهِ ولا تُهْمِلُوا تِلْكَ
أَيُّهَا القَادَةُ العُمْيَان! إِنَّكُم تُصَفُّونَ المَاءَ مِنَ البَعُوضَة، ولكِنَّكُم تَبْلَعُونَ الجَمَل
أَلوَيْلُ لَكُم، أَيُّهَا الكَتَبَةُ والفَرِّيسِيُّونَ المُرَاؤُون! لأَنَّكُم تُطَهِّرُونَ خَارِجَ الكَأْسِ والإِنَاء، ودَاخِلُهُمَا مَمْلُوءٌ بِمَا كَسِبْتُم بِالنَّهْبِ والطَّمَع
يَا فَرِّيسِيًّا أَعْمَى! طَهِّرْ دَاخِلَ الكَأْسِ أَوَّلاً، لِيَصِيْرَ خَارِجُهَا أَيْضًا طَاهِرًا

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 18:15-20.
Jesus said to his disciples: “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have won over your brother.
If he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, so that ‘every fact may be established on the testimony of two or three witnesses.’
If he refuses to listen to them, tell the church. If he refuses to listen even to the church, then treat him as you would a Gentile or a tax collector.
Amen, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
Again, (amen,) I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything for which they are to pray, it shall be granted to them by my heavenly Father.
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”

أَلوَيلُ لَكُم، أَيُّهَا القَادَةُ العُمْيَان! لأَنَّكُم تَقُولُون: مَنْ حَلَفَ بِالمَقْدِس، فَلا قِيمَةَ لِحَلَفِهِ، أَمَّا مَنْ حَلَفَ بِذَهَبِ المَقْدِس، فَحَلَفُهُ مُلْزِم
أَيُّهَا الجُهَّالُ والعُمْيَان، مَا الأَعْظَم؟ الذَّهَبُ أَمِ المَقْدِسُ الَّذي يُقَدِّسُ الذَّهَب؟
وتَقُولُون أَيضًا: مَنْ حَلَفَ بِالمَذْبَح، فلا قِيمَةَ لِحَلَفِهِ، أَمَّا مَنْ حَلَفَ بِالتَّقْدِمَةِ الَّتي عَلَيه، فَحَلَفُهُ مُلْزِم
أَيُّهَا العُمْيَان! مَا الأَعْظَم؟ التَّقْدِمَةُ أَمِ ٱلمَذْبَحُ الَّذي يُقَدِّسُ التَّقْدِمَة؟
فَمَنْ حَلَفَ بِالمَذْبَح، فَقَدْ حَلَفَ بِهِ وَبِكُلِّ مَا عَلَيْه
ومَنْ حَلَفَ بِالمَقْدِس، فَقَدْ حَلَفَ بِهِ وبِٱللهِ السَّاكنِ فِيهِ
ومَنْ حَلَفَ بِالسَّمَاء، فَقَدْ حَلَفَ بِعَرْشِ اللهِ وبِالجَالِسِ عَلَيه

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 18:1-5.10.12-14. 
The disciples approached Jesus and said, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
He called a child over, placed it in their midst, 
and said, “Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 
And whoever receives one child such as this in my name receives me.
See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father.
What is your opinion? If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them goes astray, will he not leave the ninety-nine in the hills and go in search of the stray? 
And if he finds it, amen, I say to you, he rejoices more over it than over the ninety-nine that did not stray. 
In just the same way, it is not the will of your heavenly Father that one of these little ones be lost.”

إنجيل القدّيس متّى .15-13:23

قالَ الرَبُّ يَسُوع: أَلوَيلُ لَكُم، أَيُّها الكَتَبَةُ والفَرِّيسِيُّونَ المُراؤُون! لأَنَّكُم تُغْلِقُونَ مَلَكُوتَ السَّمَاواتِ في وَجْهِ النَّاس، فلا أَنْتُم تَدْخُلُون، ولا تَدَعُونَ الدَّاخِلينَ يَدْخُلُون
أَلوَيلُ لَكُم، أَيُّهَا الكَتَبَةُ والفَرِّيسِيُّونَ المُراؤُون! لأَنَّكُم تَطُوفُونَ البَحْرَ والبَرّ، لِتُحَوِّلُوا وثَنِيًّا وَاحِدًا إِلى دِيَانَتِكُم، ومَتَى صَارَ يَهُودِيًّا، تُحَوِّلُونَهُ ٱبْنَ جَهَنَّم، ضِعْفَ مَا أَنْتُم عَلَيْه

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 17:22-27. 
As Jesus and his disciples were gathering in Galilee, Jesus said to them, “The Son of Man is to be handed over to men,
and they will kill him, and he will be raised on the third day.” And they were overwhelmed with grief. 
When they came to Capernaum, the collectors of the temple tax approached Peter and said, “Doesn’t your teacher pay the temple tax?”
Yes, he said. When he came into the house, before he had time to speak, Jesus asked him, “What is your opinion, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth take tolls or census tax? From their subjects or from foreigners?”
When he said, “From foreigners,” Jesus said to him, “Then the subjects are exempt.
But that we may not offend them, go to the sea, drop in a hook, and take the first fish that comes up. Open its mouth and you will find a coin worth twice the temple tax. Give that to them for me and for you.”

حينئذٍ قدّموا إلى يسوعَ ممسوسًا أعمى وأخرس، فشفاه، حتى تكلّمَ وأبصر
فدهشَ الجموعُ كلّهم وقالو: “لعلّ هذا هو ابنُ داود؟
وسمعَ الفرّيسيّونَ فقالوا: “إنّ هذا الرّجلَ لا يخرجُ الشّياطينَ إلاّ ببعلَ زبول، رئيسِ الشّياطين
وعَلِمَ يسوعُ أفكارهم فقالَ لَهم: “كلُّ مملكةٍ تَنقسم على نَفْسِهِا تَخْرَب، وكلُّ مدينةٍ أو بيتٍ يَنقسم على نفسِهِ لا يَثْبُت
فإن كان الشَّيْطان يُخرِجُ الشَّيْطان، يكون قد انقسمَ على نفسِهِ، فكيف تَثْبُتُ مَمْلَكَتُهُ؟
وإنْ كنتُ أنا بِبَعْلَ زبول أُخْرِجُ الشَّياطين، فأبناؤكُم بِمَنْ يُخْرِجُونَهُم؟ لذلك فَهُمْ أَنْفُسُهُم سَيَحْكُمُونَ عَلَيْكُم
أمّا إنْ كنتُ أنا بِرُوحِ الله أُخْرِجُ الشَّياطين، فَقَدْ وافاكُم مَلَكُوُت الله.
أم كيفَ يقدرُ أحدٌ أن يدخلَ بيتَ القويِّ وينهبَ أمتعتهُ، إنْ لمْ يربطِ القويّ أوّلاً، وحينئذٍ ينهبُ بيتهُ؟
من ليسَ معي فهو عليَّ، ومن لا يجمعُ معي فهو يُبدِّد.
لذلك أقولُ لكم: كلّ خطيئةٍ ستُغفرُ للنّاس، وكلّ تجديف، أمّا التّجديفُ على الرُوحِ فلنْ يُغفر.
مَنْ قالَ كلمةً على ابنِ الإنسانِ سيُغفرُ لهُ. أمّا من قالَ على الرّوحِ القدسِ فلن يُغفرَ له، لا في هذا الدّهر، ولا في الآتي

Enjil Al Yawm-Tafsir- 10/08/14

لماذا أبرأ يسوع ممسوساً أعمىً أخرساً؟
أعجوبة شفاء يسوع لممسوس أعمى أخرس تدلّ على أنّه يحنو على البشريّة ويشفيها من أمراضها الروحيّة والجسديّة حتّى لو كانت هذه الأمراض مزمنة ومستعصية
وصلت رسالة يسوع إلى الناس، لأنّهم أحسوا بأنه ابن داوود، أي أنه هو المسيح وهو يقوم بهذه الأفعال بسلطانٍ إلهي
لكنّ الفرّيسيّين بدلاً من أن يكونوا أوّل من يلاحظ هذه الحقيقة اعتبروا أن يسوع لا يصنع العجائب بقوة الله, فحاول الربّ إفهامهم أنه يفعل كلّ هذا لأنه ابن الله
أراد يسوع، بطرده الشياطين، أن ينبّه الفريسيّين أنّ ملكوت الله قد أقبل وأنّ انتصاره على المرض والشرّ في هذه الأعجوبة يُنبئ بانتصاره التام على الموت والظلمة بموته و قيامته
ولكن رفض الفرّيسيّين ليسوع يعود إلى حب السلطة والمال، كلّ هذا جعلهم يبتعدون عن يسوع ويرفضونه، لأنّه يشكّل خطراً كبيراً عليهم، فَهُم زعماء الشعب وثقة الناس بيسوع قد تبعد الناس عنهم
ردّة فعل الفرّيسيّين هي دلالة على رفضهم لعمل الله فيهم، بدلاً من أن يشعروا بروح الله الذي دلّ الشعب بأنّ يسوع الذي يشفي المرضى ويطرد الشياطين هو ابن الله

ماذا تعني لنا هذه الأعجوبة؟
كلّما اقتربنا من يسوع، وعملنا إرادته، أصبحنا محرّرين من روح هذا العالم. فهو مات وقام كي يخلّصنا من الشرّير ومن سلطته علينا، لذلك لن نقبل إلا يسوع ملكاً على حياتنا فهو لا يطلب شيئاً لنفسه ولا يملك بالقوّة والسيف بل يحترم حرّيتنا ويدعونا كي نصبح أبناءً لله و إخوةً له
يسوع يعلّمنا أيضا أن نقول الحقيقة دائما، لذلك علينا أن نقبل الروح القدس لأنّه روح الحق، ورفضنا للروح القدس هو رفضٌ للحقيقة، من هنا يسوع ينبهّنا أننا متجهون نحو الهلاك إذا أصرّينا على الكذب ورفض الحقيقة
علينا إذًا أن نلتزم بالحقيقة مهما كان ثمنها، حتى لو كان هذا الثمن الموت على الصليب كما مات يسوع

قالَ الربُّ يَسوعُ: أَعْتَرِفُ لَكَ، يَا أَبَتِ، رَبَّ السَّمَاءِ والأَرْض، لأَنَّكَ أَخْفَيْتَ هذِهِ الأُمُورَ عَنِ الحُكَمَاءِ والفُهَمَاء، وأَظْهَرْتَها لِلأَطْفَال
نَعَمْ، أَيُّها الآب، لأَنَّكَ هكَذَا ٱرْتَضَيْت
لَقَدْ سَلَّمَنِي أَبي كُلَّ شَيء، فَمَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ يَعْرِفُ ٱلٱبْنَ إِلاَّ الآب، ومَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ يَعْرِفُ الآبَ إِلاَّ ٱلٱبْن، ومَنْ يُرِيدُ ٱلٱبْنُ أَنْ يُظْهِرَهُ لَهُ
تَعَالَوا إِليَّ يَا جَمِيعَ المُتْعَبِينَ والمُثْقَلِينَ بِالأَحْمَال، وأَنَا أُريْحُكُم
إِحْمِلُوا نِيْري عَلَيْكُم، وكُونُوا لي تَلاميذ، لأَنِّي وَدِيعٌ ومُتَواضِعُ القَلْب، فَتَجِدُوا رَاحَةً لِنُفُوسِكُم
أَجَل، إِنَّ نِيْري لَيِّن، وحِمْلي خَفِيف

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 17:14-20. 
A man approached Jesus, knelt down before him,
and said, “Lord, have pity on my son, for he is a lunatic and suffers severely; often he falls into fire, and often into water.
I brought him to your disciples, but they could not cure him.”
Jesus said in reply, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long will I be with you? How long will I endure you? Bring him here to me.”
Jesus rebuked him and the demon came out of him, and from that hour the boy was cured.
Then the disciples approached Jesus in private and said, “Why could we not drive it out?” 
He said to them, “Because of your little faith. Amen, I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me.
For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.
What profit would there be for one to gain the whole world and forfeit his life? Or what can one give in exchange for his life? 
For the Son of Man will come with his angels in his Father’s glory, and then he will repay everyone according to his conduct.”
Amen, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.”

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 16:13-23. 
Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi and he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” 
They replied, “Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” 
Simon Peter said in reply, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
Jesus said to him in reply, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father.
And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.
I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
Then he strictly ordered his disciples to tell no one that he was the Messiah.
From that time on, Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer greatly from the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed and on the third day be raised.
Then Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him, “God forbid, Lord! No such thing shall ever happen to you.”
He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are an obstacle to me. You are thinking not as God does, but as human beings do.”
