Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 12,1-8.

Jesus was going through a field of grain on the sabbath. His disciples were hungry and began to pick the heads of grain and eat them.

When the Pharisees saw this, they said to him, “See, your disciples are doing what is unlawful to do on the sabbath.”

He said to them, “Have you not read what David did when he and his companions were hungry,

how he went into the house of God and ate the bread of offering, which neither he nor his companions but only the priests could lawfully eat?

Or have you not read in the law that on the sabbath the priests serving in the temple violate the sabbath and are innocent?

I say to you, something greater than the temple is here.

If you knew what this meant, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned these innocent men.

For the Son of Man is Lord of the sabbath.”

根据马太福音 12,1-8 的耶稣基督的福音。

耶稣在安息日经过一片麦田, 祂的门徒饿了,就开始摘麦穗来吃。法利赛人看见了,就对他说:“看哪,你的门徒在做安息日不该做的事。”

Keeping the Sabbath

We must expend our energy in good works before we can take our rest with a peaceful conscience… And this is the joyful solemnity of our first day of rest, on which day we put aside servile works (…) casting down the burden of our passions.

When we have celebrated our first Sabbath in the peace of our own hearts, we can go on to consider how this heart of ours must be enlarged, so as to become a great hospice in which to “rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep” (Rom 12:15). If our brethren are weak, we must be weak with them, and when they are led to sin, we must be indignant (cf. 2 Cor 11:29). Each of us must feel in soul how charity binds us to all our fellows. There must be no room in our hearts for envy or indignation, for suspicion or moroseness. On the contrary, we must gather everyone to our hearts to share in our peace, and embrace and cherish them so as to have “one heart and mind” (Acts 4:32) with them all. In our hearts there will be absolute peace from everything evil and vicious and selfish, as we rest in the gentle enjoyment of fraternal love (…) In this Sabbath we have (…) the prophet David to sing to us in a joyful strain: “Behold how good it is, how pleasant, to dwell in unity!” (Ps 133[132]:1).



当我们在内心平静中庆祝我们的第一个安息日时,我们可以继续考虑如何扩大我们的这个心,以便成为一个伟大的临终关怀院,“与那些喜乐的人一起欢喜​​,与哭泣的人”,一起哭泣”(罗 12:15)。

如果我们的弟兄软弱,我们必须对他们扶持。当他们被引向犯罪时,我们必须愤慨(参 2 Cor 11:29)。我们每个人都必须在灵魂中感受到爱是;如何将我们与所有同胞联系在一起。我们的心中决不能有嫉妒或愤慨、猜疑或忧郁的余地。

相反,我们必须把每个人都聚集到我们的心里,分享我们的平安,拥抱和珍惜他们。以便与他们“同心合意”(使徒行传 4:32)。在我们的心中,一切的邪恶、恶毒和自私,都不会有绝对的平安。因为我们安息在兄弟之爱的温柔享受中 (…) 在这个安息日,我们有 (…) 先知大卫欢快地向我们唱歌:“看啊,住在合一中是多么美好、多么愉快!” (诗篇 133[132]:1)。
