恭讀聖瑪竇福音 16:13-23

那時候,耶穌來到了斐理伯的凱撒勒雅境內,就問門徒說:「人們說人子是誰?」他們說:「有人說是洗者若翰;有人說是厄里亞;也有人說是耶肋米亞,或先知中的一位。」耶穌對他們說:「你們說我是誰?」西滿伯多祿回答說:「你是默西亞,永生天主之子。」耶穌回答他說:「約納的兒子西滿,你是有福的!因為不是肉和血啟示了你,而是我在天之父。我再給你說:你是伯多祿(磐石),在這磐石上,我要建立我的教會,陰間的門決不能戰勝她。我要將天國的鑰匙交給你:凡你在地上所束縛的,在天上也要被束縛;凡你在地上所釋放的,在天上也要被釋放。」他遂即嚴禁門徒,不要對任何人說他是默西亞。
從那時起,耶穌就開始向門徒說明:他必須上耶路撒冷去,要由長老、司祭長和經師們受許多痛苦,並將被殺,但第三天要復活。伯多祿便拉耶穌到一邊,諫責他說:「主,千萬不可!這事絕不會臨到你身上!」耶穌轉身對伯多祿說:「撒殫,退到我後面去!你是我的絆腳石,因為你所體會的,不是天主的事,而是人的事。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to 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 Christ, 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 Christ.
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 Jesus 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.”

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 15:21-28

那時候,耶穌離開革乃撒勒,就退往提洛和漆冬一帶去了。看,有一個客納罕婦人,從那地方出來喊說:「主,達味之子,可憐我吧!我的女兒被魔鬼糾纏得好苦啊!」耶穌卻一句話也不回答她。他的門徒就上前求他說:「打發她走吧!因為她在我們後面不停喊叫。」耶穌回答說:「我被派遣,只是為了以色列家迷失的羊。」那婦人卻前來叩拜他說:「主,援助我吧!」耶穌回答說:「拿兒女的餅扔給小狗,是不對的。」但她說:「是啊!主,可是小狗也吃主人桌子上掉下來的碎屑。」耶穌回答她說:「啊!婦人,你的信德真大,就如你所願望的,給你成就吧!」從那時刻起,她的女兒就痊愈了。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 15:21-28

At that time Jesus withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon. And behold, a Canaanite woman of that district came and called out, “Have pity on me, Lord, Son of David! My daughter is tormented by a demon.” But he did not say a word in answer to her. His disciples came and asked him, “Send her away, for she keeps calling out after us.” He said in reply, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” But the woman came and did him homage, saying, “Lord, help me.” He said in reply, “It is not right to take the food of the children and throw it to the dogs.” She said, “Please, Lord, for even the dogs eat the scraps that fall from the table of their masters.” Then Jesus said to her in reply, “O woman, great is your faith! Let it be done for you as you wish.” And her daughter was healed from that hour.

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 14:22-36

群眾吃飽以後,耶穌即刻催迫門徒上船,在他以先到對岸去;這期間,他遣散了群眾。耶穌遣散了群眾以後,他私自上山祈禱去了。到了夜晚,他獨自一人在那裏。船已離岸幾里了,受著波浪的顛簸,因為吹的是逆風。夜間四更時分,耶穌步行海上,朝著他們走去。門徒看見他在海上行走,就驚駭說:「是個妖怪。」並且嚇得大叫起來。耶穌立即向他們說道:「放心!是我。不必害怕!」
伯多祿回答說:「主!如果是你,就叫我在水面步行到你那裏吧!」耶穌說:「來吧!」伯多祿遂從船上下來,走在水面上,往耶穌那裏去。但他一見風勢很強,就害怕起來,並開始下沉,遂大叫說:「主,救我吧!」耶穌立刻伸手拉住他,對他說:「小信德的人啊!你為什麼懷疑?」他們一上了船,風就停了。船上的人便朝拜他說:「你真是天主子!」
他們渡海到對岸,來到革乃撒勒的地方。那地方的人一認出是耶穌,就打發人到周圍整個地方,把一切患病的人,都帶到耶穌跟前,求耶穌讓他們只摸摸他的衣邊;凡摸著的,都痊愈了。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 14:22-36

Jesus made the disciples get into a boat and precede him to the other side of the sea, while he dismissed the crowds. After doing so, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When it was evening he was there alone. Meanwhile the boat, already a few miles offshore, was being tossed about by the waves, for the wind was against it. During the fourth watch of the night, he came toward them, walking on the sea. When the disciples saw him walking on the sea they were terrified. “It is a ghost,” they said, and they cried out in fear. At once Jesus spoke to them, “Take courage, it is I; do not be afraid.” Peter said to him in reply, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.” He said, “Come.” Peter got out of the boat and began to walk on the water toward Jesus. But when he saw how strong the wind was he became frightened; and, beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus stretched out his hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” After they got into the boat, the wind died down. Those who were in the boat did him homage, saying, “Truly, you are the Son of God.”
After making the crossing, they came to land at Gennesaret. When the men of that place recognized him, they sent word to all the surrounding country. People brought to him all those who were sick and begged him that they might touch only the tassel on his cloak, and as many as touched it were healed.

耶穌一聽若翰的死訊,就從那裏上船,私下退到荒野地方;群眾聽說了,就從各城裏步行跟了他去。他一下船,看見一大夥群眾,便對他動了憐憫的心,治好了他們的病人。到了傍晚,門徒到他跟前說:「這地方是荒野,時候已不早了,請你遣散群眾吧!叫他們各自到村莊去買食物。」耶穌卻對他們說:「他們不必去,你們給他們吃的吧!」門徒對他說:「我們這裏什麼也沒有,只有五個餅和兩條魚。」耶穌說:「你們給我拿到這裏來!」遂又吩咐群眾坐在草地上,然後拿起那五個餅和兩條魚,望天祝福了;把餅擘開,遞給門徒,門徒再分給群眾。眾人吃了,也都飽了;然後他們把剩餘的碎塊收了滿滿十二筐。吃的人數,除了婦女和小孩子外,約有五千。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 14:13-21

When Jesus heard of the death of John the Baptist, he withdrew in a boat to a deserted place by himself. The crowds heard of this and followed him on foot from their towns. When he disembarked and saw the vast crowd, his heart was moved with pity for them, and he cured their sick. When it was evening, the disciples approached him and said, “This is a deserted place and it is already late; dismiss the crowds so that they can go to the villages and buy food for themselves.” He said to them, “There is no need for them to go away; give them some food yourselves.” But they said to him, “Five loaves and two fish are all we have here.” Then he said, “Bring them here to me,” and he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, he said the blessing, broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, who in turn gave them to the crowds. They all ate and were satisfied, and they picked up the fragments left over–twelve wicker baskets full. Those who ate were about five thousand men, not counting women and children.

恭讀聖若望福音 6:24-35

那時候,群眾發覺耶穌和他的門徒都不在海邊,便上了那些小船,往葛法翁,去找耶穌。當群眾在海的對岸,找到耶穌時,就對耶穌說:「辣彼,你什麼時候到了這裡?」
耶穌回答說:「我實實在在告訴你們:你們尋找我,並不是因為看到了神蹟,而是因為吃餅吃飽了。你們不要為那可損壞的食糧勞碌,而要為那存留到永生的食糧勞碌,即人子所要賜給你們的,因為他是天主聖父所印證的。」
群眾問耶穌說:「我們該做什麼,才算做天主的事業呢?」
耶穌回答說:「天主要你們做的事業,就是要你們信從他所派遣來的那一位。」
群眾又說:「那麼,你能行什麼神蹟,給我們看,好叫我們信服你呢?你能做什麼呢?我們的祖先在曠野裡,吃過『瑪納』,正如經上記載的:『他從天上賜給了他們食物。』」
於是,耶穌向群眾說:「我實實在在告訴你們:並不是梅瑟,賜給了你們從天上來的食糧,而是我父現在賜給你們,從天上來的真正食糧,因為天主的食糧,是由天降下,並賜給世界生命的。」
群眾便說:「主!你就把這樣的食糧,常常賜給我們吧!」
耶穌回答說:「我就是生命的食糧;到我這裡來的,永不會飢餓;信從我的,總不會渴。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John 6:24-35

When the crowd saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they themselves got into boats and came to Capernaum looking for Jesus. And when they found him across the sea they said to him, “Rabbi, when did you get here?” Jesus answered them and said, “Amen, amen, I say to you, you are looking for me not because you saw signs but because you ate the loaves and were filled. Do not work for food that perishes but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him the Father, God, has set his seal.” So they said to him, “What can we do to accomplish the works of God?” Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in the one he sent.” So they said to him, “What sign can you do, that we may see and believe in you? What can you do? Our ancestors ate manna in the desert, as it is written: He gave them bread from heaven to eat.” So Jesus said to them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave the bread from heaven; my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”
So they said to him, “Sir, give us this bread always.” Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.”

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 14:1-12

那時,分封侯黑落德聽到耶穌的名聲,就對他的臣僕說:「這是洗者若翰,他由死者中復活了;為此,這些奇能才在他身上運行。」原來,黑落德為了他兄弟斐理伯的妻子黑落狄雅的緣故,逮捕了若翰,把他囚在監裏,因為若翰曾給他說:「你不可佔有這個女人!」黑落德本有意殺他,但害怕群眾,因為他們都以若翰為先知。
到了黑落德的生日,黑落狄雅的女兒在席間跳舞,中悅了黑落德。為此,黑落德發誓許下,她無論求什麼,都要給她,她受了她母親的唆使後,就說:「請就地把若翰的頭放在盤子裏給我!」王十分憂鬱,但為了誓言和同席的人,就下令給她。遂差人在監裏斬了若翰的頭,把頭放在盤子裏拿來,給了女孩;女孩便拿去給了她的母親。若翰的門徒前來,領了屍身,埋葬了,然後去報告給耶穌。

(Memorial of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, Priest)

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 14:1-12

Herod the tetrarch heard of the reputation of Jesus and said to his servants, “This man is John the Baptist. He has been raised from the dead; that is why mighty powers are at work in him.”
Now Herod had arrested John, bound him, and put him in prison on account of Herodias, the wife of his brother Philip, for John had said to him, “It is not lawful for you to have her.” Although he wanted to kill him, he feared the people, for they regarded him as a prophet. But at a birthday celebration for Herod, the daughter of Herodias performed a dance before the guests and delighted Herod so much that he swore to give her whatever she might ask for. Prompted by her mother, she said, “Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptist.” The king was distressed, but because of his oaths and the guests who were present, he ordered that it be given, and he had John beheaded in the prison. His head was brought in on a platter and given to the girl, who took it to her mother. His disciples came and took away the corpse and buried him; and they went and told Jesus.

那時,耶穌來到自己的家鄉,在會堂裏教訓人,以致人們都驚訝說:「這人從那裏得了這樣的智慧和奇能?這人不是那木匠的兒子?他的母親不是叫瑪利亞,他的弟兄不是叫雅各伯、若瑟、西滿和猶達嗎?他的姊妹不是都在我們這裏嗎?那麼他的這一切是從那來的呢?」他們就對他起了反感。耶穌卻對他們說:「先知除了在自己的本鄉本家外,沒有不受尊敬的。」他在那裏,因為他們不信,沒有多行奇能。

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 13:54-58

Jesus came to his native place and taught the people in their synagogue. They were astonished and said, “Where did this man get such wisdom and mighty deeds? Is he not the carpenter’s son? Is not his mother named Mary and his brothers James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas? Are not his sisters all with us? Where did this man get all this?” And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his native place and in his own house.”
And he did not work many mighty deeds there because of their lack of faith.

Martha, burdened with much serving, came to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving? Tell her to help me.” The Lord said to her in reply, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her.”

Jesus dismissed the crowds and went into the house. His disciples approached him and said, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.” He said in reply, “He who sows good seed is the Son of Man, the field is the world, the good seed the children of the Kingdom. The weeds are the children of the Evil One, and the enemy who sows them is the Devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels. Just as weeds are collected and burned up with fire, so will it be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will collect out of his Kingdom all who cause others to sin and all evildoers. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears ought to hear.”
