ٱفْرَحُوا بِمِقْدَارِ مَا تَشْتَرِكُونَ في آلامِ المَسِيح، حتَّى إِذَا ظَهَرَ مَجْدُهُ تَفْرَحُونَ أَيْضًا وتَبْتَهِجُون
“رسالة القدّيس بطرس الأولى04/من12حتى19/:”يا إخوَتِي، أَيُّهَا الأَحِبَّاءُ، لا تَتَعَجَّبُوا مِن نَارِ ٱلٱضْطِهَادِ ٱلمُشْتَعِلَةِ عِنْدَكُم لٱمْتِحَانِكُم، كَأَنَّهُ أَمرٌ غَرِيبٌ يَحْدُثُ لَكُم. بلِ ٱفْرَحُوا بِمِقْدَارِ مَا تَشْتَرِكُونَ في آلامِ المَسِيح، حتَّى إِذَا ظَهَرَ مَجْدُهُ تَفْرَحُونَ أَيْضًا وتَبْتَهِجُون. وإِنْ عَيَّروكُم بِٱسْمِ الْمَسِيح، فَطُوبَى لَكُم، لأَنَّ رُوحَ الْمَجْد، رُوحَ الله، يَسْتَقِرُّ فيكُم. َلا يَكُونَنَّ فِيكُم مَنْ يتَأَلَّمُ لأَنَّهُ قَاتِلٌ أَو سَارِقٌ أَو فَاعِلُ شرٍّ أَو مُتَطَفِّلٌ عَلى الغَير. لكِنْ إِنْ تَأَلَّمَ أَحَدُكُم لأَنَّهُ مسِيحِيّ، فلا يَخْجَلْ! بَلْ فَلْيُمَجِّدِ اللهَ بِهذَا ٱلٱسْم؛ لأَنَّ الوَقْتَ قَدْ حَانَ لِيَبْتَدِئَ القَضَاءُ بِأَهْلِ بَيْتِ الله. وإِنْ كانَ بَدْؤُهُ بِنَا، فَمَا تَكُونُ نِهايَةُ الَّذِينَ لا يُطِيعُونَ إِنْجِيلَ الله؟«وَإِنْ كَانَ البَارُّ بِالجَهْدِ يَخْلُص، فمَا حَالُ الكَافِرِ والخَاطِئ؟». لِذلِكَ فَالَّذِينَ يتأَلَّمُونَ وَفْقَ مَشِيئَةِ الله، فَلْيَسْتَودِعُوا الخَالِقَ الأَمِينَ نُفُوسَهُم، وهُم مُوَاظِبُونَ على عَمَلِ الخَير”.

But rejoice in so far as you are sharing Christ’s sufferings, so that you may also be glad and shout for joy when his glory is revealed.
First Letter of Peter 04/12-19:”Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that is taking place among you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice in so far as you are sharing Christ’s sufferings, so that you may also be glad and shout for joy when his glory is revealed. If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the spirit of glory, which is the Spirit of God, is resting on you. But let none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, a criminal, or even as a mischief-maker. Yet if any of you suffers as a Christian, do not consider it a disgrace, but glorify God because you bear this name. For the time has come for judgement to begin with the household of God; if it begins with us, what will be the end for those who do not obey the gospel of God? And ‘If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinners?’ Therefore, let those suffering in accordance with God’s will entrust themselves to a faithful Creator, while continuing to do good.”

هذَا هُوَ الخُبْزُ النَّازِلُ مِنَ السَّمَاء، لِيَأْكُلَ مِنْهُ الإِنْسَانُ فلا يَمُوت. َانَا هُوَ الخُبْزُ الحَيُّ النَّازِلُ مِنَ السَّمَاء
“إنجيل القدّيس يوحنّا06/من48حتى59/: قال الرَبُّ يَسُوع: «أَنَا هُوَ خُبْزُ الحَيَاة. أبَاؤُكُم أَكَلُوا المَنَّ في البَرِّيَّة، ومَاتُوا. هذَا هُوَ الخُبْزُ النَّازِلُ مِنَ السَّمَاء، لِيَأْكُلَ مِنْهُ الإِنْسَانُ فلا يَمُوت. َانَا هُوَ الخُبْزُ الحَيُّ النَّازِلُ مِنَ السَّمَاء. مَنْ يَأْكُلْ مِنْ هذَا الخُبْزِ يَحْيَ إِلى الأَبَد. والخُبْزُ الَّذِي أَنَا أُعْطِيهِ هُوَ جَسَدِي، مِنْ أَجْلِ حَيَاةِ العَالَم». فَأَخَذَ اليَهُودُ يَتَجَادَلُونَ ويَقُولُون: «كَيْفَ يَقْدِرُ هذَا أَنْ يُعْطِيَنَا جَسَدَهُ لِنَأْكُلَهُ؟». َقَالَ لَهُم يَسُوع: «أَلحَقَّ ٱلحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُم: إِنْ لَمْ تَأْكُلُوا جَسَدَ ٱبْنِ الإِنْسَان، وتَشْرَبُوا دَمَهُ، فلا تَكُونُ لَكُم حَيَاةٌ في أَنْفُسِكُم. مَنْ يَأْكُلُ جَسَدِي ويَشْرَبُ دَمِي يَنَالُ حَيَاةً أَبَدِيَّة، وأَنَا أُقِيمُهُ في اليَوْمِ الأَخِير،لأَنَّ جَسَدِي طَعَامٌ حَقِيقِيّ، ودَمِي شَرَابٌ حَقِيقِيّ. َنْ يَأْكُلُ جَسَدِي ويَشْرَبُ دَمِي يَثْبُتُ فِيَّ وأَنَا فِيه. كَمَا أَرْسَلَنِي الآبُ الحَيّ، وأَنَا بِٱلآبِ أَحْيَا، كَذلِكَ مَنْ يَأْكُلُنِي يَحْيَا هُوَ أَيْضًا بِي. ذَا هُوَ الخُبْزُ الَّذي نَزَلَ مِنَ السَّمَاء، لا كَمَا أَكَلَ آبَاؤُكُم ومَاتُوا. مَنْ يَأْكُلُ هذَا الخُبْزَ يَحْيَا إِلى الأَبَد». هذَا قَالَهُ يَسُوعُ في المَجْمَعِ وهُوَ يُعَلِّمُ في كَفَرْنَاحُوم”.

This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 06/48-59:”I am the bread of life. Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats of this bread will live for ever; and the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.’The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, ‘How can this man give us his flesh to eat?’So Jesus said to them, ‘Very truly, I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood have eternal life, and I will raise them up on the last day; for my flesh is true food and my blood is true drink. Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood abide in me, and I in them. Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever eats me will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven, not like that which your ancestors ate, and they died. But the one who eats this bread will live for ever.’ He said these things while he was teaching in the synagogue at Capernaum.”
