加爾默羅聖母 (紀念)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 12:1-8

那時,耶穌在安息日由麥田中經過;他的門徒餓了,開始掐麥穗吃。法利塞人一見,便對他說:「看,他的門徒作安息日不許作的事。」耶穌對他們說:「你們沒有念過:達味與那些同他在一起的人,饑餓時,作了什麼?他怎樣進了天主的殿,吃了供餅?這供餅原是不准他吃,也不准同他在一起的人吃,而是只許司祭吃的。或者你們在法律上沒有念過:在安息日,司祭在聖殿內違犯了安息日,也不算為罪過嗎?但我告訴你們:這裏有比聖殿更大的。假如你們瞭解『我喜歡仁愛勝過祭獻』是什麼,你們就決不會判斷無罪的人了,因為人子是安息日的主。」

—上主的話。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to 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 the 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.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.
