(常年期第卅主日)聖路加福音 18:9-14

那時候,耶穌向幾個自充為義人,而輕視其他人的人,設了這個比喻:「有兩個人上聖殿去祈禱:一個是法利塞人,另一個是稅吏。

「那個法利塞人站著,心裡這樣祈禱:天主,我感謝你,因為我不像其他人,勒索、不義、姦淫,也不像這個稅吏。我每周兩次禁食,凡我所得的,都捐獻十分之一。

「那個稅吏卻遠遠地站著,連舉目望天都不敢,只是捶著自己的胸膛說:天主,可憐我這個罪人吧!

「我告訴你們:這稅吏回到他家裡,成了正義的人,而那法利塞人卻不然。因為凡高舉自己的,必被貶抑;凡貶抑自己的,必被高舉。」

(傳教主日)聖若望福音 17:11, 17-23

那時候,耶穌舉目向天說:「聖父啊!求你因你的名,保全那些你所賜給我的人,使他們合而為一,正如我們一樣。

「求你以真理祝聖他們;你的話就是真理。

就如你派遣我到世界上來,照樣,我也派遣他們到世界上去。我為他們祝聖我自己,為叫他們也因真理而被祝聖。

「我不但為他們祈求,而且也為那些因他們的話,而信從我的人祈求,好使他們都合而為一。父啊!就如你在我內,我在你內,使他們也在我們內合而為一,就如你在我內,我在你內,為叫世界相信,是你派遣了我。

「我將你賜給我的光榮,賜給了他們,為叫他們合而為一,就如我們原為一體一樣。我在他們內,你在我內,使他們完全合而為一,為叫世界知道:是你派遣了我,並且你愛了他們,如同愛了我一樣。」

(30th Sunday in Ordinary Time) A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke (18:9-14)

Jesus addressed this parable to those who were convinced of their own righteousness and despised everyone else. “Two people went up to the Temple to pray; one was a Pharisee and the other was a tax collector. The Pharisee took up his position and spoke this prayer to himself, ‘O God, I thank you that I am not like the rest of humanity—greedy, dishonest, adulterous—or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week, and I pay tithes on my whole income.’ But the tax collector stood off at a distance and would not even raise his eyes to heaven but beat his breast and prayed, ‘O God, be merciful to me a sinner.’ I tell you, the latter went home justified, not the former; for whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”

(Mission Sunday) A reading from the holy Gospel according to John (17:11b, 17-23)

Lifting up his eyes to heaven, Jesus prayed, saying: “Holy Father, keep them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one just as we are one.

“Consecrate them in truth. Your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, so I sent them into the world. And I consecrate myself for them, so that they also may be consecrated in truth.

“I pray not only for these, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, so that they may all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you, that they also may be in us, that the world may believe that you sent me. And I have given them the glory you gave me, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may be brought to perfection as one, that the world may know that you sent me, and that you loved them even as you loved me.”
