|Psalm 18(19):2-5 ©|
Jesus had just finished speaking when a Pharisee invited him to dine at his house. He went in and sat down at the table. The Pharisee saw this and was surprised that he had not first washed before the meal. But the Lord said to him, ‘Oh, you Pharisees! You clean the outside of cup and plate, while inside yourselves you are filled with extortion and wickedness. Fools! Did not he who made the outside make the inside too? Instead, give alms from what you have and then indeed everything will be clean for you.’
Ἐν δὲ τῷ λαλῆσαι ἐρωτᾷ αὐτὸν Φαρισαῖος ὅπως ἀριστήσῃ παρ’ αὐτῷ· εἰσελθὼν δὲ ἀνέπεσεν. ὁ δὲ Φαρισαῖος ἰδὼν ἐθαύμασεν ὅτι οὐ πρῶτον ἐβαπτίσθη πρὸ τοῦ ἀρίστου. εἶπεν δὲ ὁ κύριος πρὸς αὐτόν· νῦν ὑμεῖς οἱ Φαρισαῖοι τὸ ἔξωθεν τοῦ ποτηρίου καὶ τοῦ πίνακος καθαρίζετε τὸ δὲ ἔσωθεν ὑμῶν γέμει ἁρπαγῆς καὶ πονηρίας. ἄφρονες, οὐχ ὁ ποιήσας τὸ ἔξωθεν καὶ τὸ ἔσωθεν ἐποίησεν; πλὴν τὰ ἐνόντα δότε ἐλεημοσύνην καὶ ἰδοὺ πάντα καθαρὰ ὑμῖν ἐστιν.
These are the readings for the memorial
|First reading||Romans 8:22-27 ©|
|The Spirit himself expresses our plea in a way that could never be put into words|
|Psalm 18(19):8-11 ©|
Jesus said to his disciples:
‘I am the true vine,
and my Father is the vinedresser.
Every branch in me that bears no fruit
he cuts away,
and every branch that does bear fruit
he prunes to make it bear even more.
You are pruned already,
by means of the word that I have spoken to you.
Make your home in me, as I make mine in you.
As a branch cannot bear fruit all by itself,
but must remain part of the vine,
neither can you unless you remain in me.
I am the vine,
you are the branches.
Whoever remains in me, with me in him,
bears fruit in plenty;
for cut off from me you can do nothing.
Anyone who does not remain in me
is like a branch that has been thrown away – he withers;
these branches are collected and thrown on the fire,
and they are burnt.
If you remain in me
and my words remain in you,
you may ask what you will
and you shall get it.
It is to the glory of my Father that you should bear much fruit,
and then you will be my disciples.’
Ἐγὼ εἰμι ἡ ἄμπελος ἡ ἀληθινὴ
καὶ ὁ πατήρ μου ὁ γεωργός ἐστιν.
πᾶν κλῆμα ἐν ἐμοὶ μὴ φέρον καρπὸν
καὶ πᾶν τὁ καρπὸν φέρον
καθαίρει αὐτὸ ἵνα καρπὸν πλείονα φέρῃ.
ἤδη ὑμεῖς καθαροί ἐστε
διὰ τὸν λόγον ὃν λελάληκα ὑμῖν·
μείνατε ἐν ἐμοὶ καγὼ ἐν ὑμῖν.
καθὼς τὸ κλῆμα οὐ δύναται καρπὸν φέρειν ἀφ’ ἑαυτοῦ
ἐὰν μὴ μένῃ ἐν τῇ ἀμπέλῳ,
οὕτως οὐδὲ ὑμεῖς ἐὰν μὴ ἐν ἐμοὶ μένητε.
ἐγὼ εἰμι ἡ ἄμπελος,
ὑμεῖς τὰ κλήματα.
ὁ μένων ἐν ἐμοὶ καγὼ ἐν αὐτῷ
οὕτος φέρει καρπὸν πολύν,
ὅτι χωρὶς ἐμοῦ οὐ δύνασθε ποιεῖν οὐδέν.
ἐὰν μή τις μένη ἐν ἐμοὶ
ἐβλήθη ἔξω ὡς τὸ κλῆμα καὶ ἐξηράνθη
καὶ συνάγουσιν αὐτὰ καὶ εἰς τὸ πῦρ βάλλουσιν
ἐὰν μείνητε ἐν ἐμοὶ
καὶ τὰ ῥήματα μου ἐν ὑμῖν μείνῃ,
ὃ ἐὰν θέλητε αἰτήσασθε,
καὶ γενήσεται ὑμῖν.
ἐν τούτῳ ἐδοξάσθη ὁ πατήρ μου, ἵνα καρπὸν πολὺν φέρητε
καὶ γένησθε ἐμοὶ μαθηταί.
