الأحد الخامس من الصوم الكبير/عجيبة شفاء المخلع
إنجيل القدّيس مرقس02/من01حتى12/عَادَ يَسُوعُ إِلى كَفَرْنَاحُوم. وسَمِعَ النَّاسُ أَنَّهُ في البَيْت. فتَجَمَّعَ عَدَدٌ كَبيرٌ مِنْهُم حَتَّى غَصَّ بِهِمِ المَكَان، ولَمْ يَبْقَ مَوْضِعٌ لأَحَدٍ ولا عِنْدَ البَاب. وكانَ يُخَاطِبُهُم بِكَلِمَةِ الله. فأَتَوْهُ بِمُخَلَّعٍ يَحْمِلُهُ أَرْبَعَةُ رِجَال. وبِسَبَبِ الجَمْعِ لَمْ يَسْتَطِيعُوا الوُصُولَ بِهِ إِلى يَسُوع، فكَشَفُوا السَّقْفَ فَوْقَ يَسُوع، ونَبَشُوه، ودَلَّوا الفِرَاشَ الَّذي كانَ المُخَلَّعُ مَطْرُوحًا عَلَيْه. ورَأَى يَسُوعُ إِيْمَانَهُم، فقَالَ لِلْمُخَلَّع: «يَا ٱبْني، مَغْفُورَةٌ لَكَ خطَايَاك!». وكانَ بَعْضُ الكَتَبَةِ جَالِسِينَ هُنَاكَ يُفَكِّرُونَ في قُلُوبِهِم: لِمَاذَا يَتَكَلَّمُ هذَا الرَّجُلُ هكَذَا؟ إِنَّهُ يُجَدِّف! مَنْ يَقْدِرُ أَنْ يَغْفِرَ الخَطَايَا إِلاَّ اللهُ وَحْدَهُ؟. وفي الحَالِ عَرَفَ يَسُوعُ بِرُوحِهِ أَنَّهُم يُفَكِّرُونَ هكَذَا في أَنْفُسِهِم فَقَالَ لَهُم: «لِمَاذَا تُفَكِّرُونَ بِهذَا في قُلُوبِكُم؟ ما هُوَ الأَسْهَل؟ أَنْ يُقَالَ لِلْمُخَلَّع: مَغْفُورَةٌ لَكَ خطَايَاك؟ أَمْ أَنْ يُقَال: قُمْ وَٱحْمِلْ فِرَاشَكَ وَٱمْشِ؟ ولِكَي تَعْلَمُوا أَنَّ لٱبْنِ الإِنْسَانِ سُلْطَانًا أَنْ يَغْفِرَ الخَطَايَا عَلَى الأَرْض»، قالَ لِلْمُخَلَّع: لَكَ أَقُول: قُم، إِحْمِلْ فِرَاشَكَ، وٱذْهَبْ إِلى بَيْتِكَ!. فقَامَ في الحَالِ وحَمَلَ فِرَاشَهُ، وخَرَجَ أَمامَ الجَمِيع، حَتَّى دَهِشُوا كُلُّهُم ومَجَّدُوا اللهَ قَائِلين: «مَا رَأَيْنَا مِثْلَ هذَا البَتَّة!».

Fifth Sunday of the Great Lent/The Healing Miracle of the Paralytic
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 02/01-12/When Jesus returned to Capernaum after some days, it was reported that he was at home.So many gathered around that there was no longer room for them, not even in front of the door; and he was speaking the word to them.Then some people came, bringing to him a paralysed man, carried by four of them. And when they could not bring him to Jesus because of the crowd, they removed the roof above him; and after having dug through it, they let down the mat on which the paralytic lay. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, ‘Son, your sins are forgiven.’Now some of the scribes were sitting there, questioning in their hearts, ‘Why does this fellow speak in this way? It is blasphemy! Who can forgive sins but God alone?’ At once Jesus perceived in his spirit that they were discussing these questions among themselves; and he said to them, ‘Why do you raise such questions in your hearts? Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, “Your sins are forgiven”, or to say, “Stand up and take your mat and walk”?But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins’ he said to the paralytic ‘I say to you, stand up, take your mat and go to your home.’And he stood up, and immediately took the mat and went out before all of them; so that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, ‘We have never seen anything like this!
