Sequentia sancti Evangelii secúndum Lucam (15:1-10)

In illo témpore: Erant appropinquántes ad Jesum publicáni, et peccatóres, ut audírent illum. Et murmurábant pharisæi et scribæ, dicéntes: Quia hic peccatóres récipit, et mandúcat cum illis. Et ait ad illos parábolam istam, dicens: Quis ex vobis homo, qui habet centum oves: et si perdíderit unam ex illis, nonne dimíttit nonagintanóvem in desérto, et vadit ad illam, quæ períerat, donec invéniat eam? Et cum invénerit eam, impónit in húmeros suos gaudens: et véniens domum, cónvocat amícos, et vicínos, dicens illis: Congratulámini mihi, quia invéni ovem meam, quæ períerat? Dico vobis, quod ita gáudium erit in cælo super uno peccatóre pœniténtiam agénte, quam super nonagintanóvem justis, qui non índigent pœniténtia. Aut quæ múlier habens drachmas decem, si perdíderit drachmam unam, nonne accéndit lucérnam, et evérrit domum, et quærit diligénter, donec invéniat? Et cum invénerit, cónvocat amícas et vicínas, dicens: Congratulámini mihi, quia invéni drachmam quam perdíderam? Ita dico vobis: gáudium erit coram Angelis Dei super uno peccatóre pœniténtiam agénte.




Τὸ χαμένο πρόβατο και ῾η χαμένη δραχμὴ

ΗΣΑΝ δὲ ἐγγίζοντες αὐτῷ πάντες οἱ τελῶναι καὶ οἱ ἁμαρτωλοὶ ἀκούειν αὐτοῦ. 2 καὶ διεγόγγυζον οἱ Φαρισαῖοι καὶ οἱ γραμματεῖς λέγοντες ὅτι οὗτος ἁμαρτωλοὺς προσδέχεται καὶ συνεσθίει αὐτοῖς. 3 εἶπε δὲ πρὸς αὐτοὺς τὴν παραβολὴν ταύτην λέγων· 4 τίς ἄνθρωπος ἐξ ὑμῶν ἔχων ἑκατὸν πρόβατα, καὶ ἀπολέσας ἓν ἐξ αὐτῶν, οὐ καταλείπει τὰ ἐνενήκοντα ἐννέα ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ καὶ πορεύεται ἐπὶ τὸ ἀπολωλὸς ἕως οὗ εὕρῃ αὐτό; 5 καὶ εὑρὼν ἐπιτίθησιν ἐπὶ τοὺς ὤμους αὐτοῦ χαίρων, 6 καὶ ἐλθὼν εἰς τὸν οἶκον συγκαλεῖ τοὺς φίλους καὶ τοὺς γείτονας λέγων αὐτοῖς· συγχάρητέ μοι ὅτι εὗρον τὸ πρόβατόν μου τὸ ἀπολωλός. 7 λέγω ὑμῖν ὅτι οὕτω χαρὰ ἔσται ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ ἐπὶ ἑνὶ ἁμαρτωλῷ μετανοοῦντι ἢ ἐπὶ ἐνενήκοντα ἐννέα δικαίοις, οἵτινες οὐ χρείαν ἔχουσι μετανοίας. 8 ῍Η τίς γυνὴ δραχμὰς ἔχουσα δέκα, ἐὰν ἀπολέσῃ δραχμὴν μίαν, οὐχὶ ἅπτει λύχνον καὶ σαροῖ τὴν οἰκίαν καὶ ζητεῖ ἐπιμελῶς ἕως ὅτου εὕρῃ; 9 καὶ εὑροῦσα συγκαλεῖ τὰς φίλας καὶ τὰς γείτονας λέγουσα· συγχάρητέ μοι ὅτι εὗρον τὴν δραχμὴν ἣν ἀπώλεσα. 10 οὕτω, λέγω ὑμῖν, χαρὰ γίνεται ἐνώπιον τῶν ἀγγέλων τοῦ Θεοῦ ἐπὶ ἑνὶ ἁμαρτωλῷ μετανοοῦντι.

Lesson vii
Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum LucamThe Lesson is taken from the Holy Gospel according to Luke
Chap. 15, 1-10
In illo témpore : Erant appropinquántes ad Jesum publicáni et peccatóres, ut audírent illum.  Et réliqua.
At that time : There drew near unto Jesus the publicans and sinners, for to hear him.  And so on, and that which followeth.
Homilía sancti Gregórii PapæA Homily by St. Gregory the Pope
Homilia 34 in Evang. n. 2-3
Audístis in lectióne evangélica, fratres mei, quia peccatóres et publicáni accessérunt ad Redemptórem nostrum ; et non solum ad colloquéndum, sed étiam ad convescéndum recépti sunt.  Quod vidéntes pharisæi dedignáti sunt.  Ex qua re collígite quia vera justítia compassiónem habet, falsa justítia dedignatiónem.  Quamvis et justi sóleant recte peccatóribus dedignári : sed áliud est quod ágitur typho supérbiæ, áliud quod zelo disciplínæ.
Ye have heard, my brethren, from the Gospel which hath but now been read, how that the Publicans and the sinners drew near unto our Redeemer, and how that he received them, not only to converse, but also to eat with him.  And when the Pharisees and Scribes saw it, they murmured.  From this learn ye, that true righteousness is merciful, and false righteousness is contemptuous.  And even though the righteous also are oft-times moved to feel just indignation at sinners, it is one thing thus to be indignant through pride, and another to be so through a zeal for discipline.
V.  Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R.  Deo grátias.
V.  But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R.  Thanks be to God.
R.  Ego si exaltátus fúero a terra Omnia traham ad meípsum.V.  Hoc autem dicébat signíficans qua morte esset moritúrus.
R.  Omnia traham ad meípsum.
R.  If I be lifted up, *  I will draw all men unto me.V.  This he said, signifying what death he should die.
R.  I will draw all men unto me.

V.  Jube domne, (Dómine) benedícere.
V.  Vouchsafe, Reverend Father (O Lord), thy blessing.
Benedíctio 8: Divínum auxílium máneat semper nobíscum.
R.  Amen.
Benediction 8: May help divine be with us all, for ever abiding.
R.  Amen.
Lesson viii
Dedignántur étenim, sed non dedignántes ; despérant, sed non desperántes ; persecutiónem cómmovent, sed amántes : quia etsi foris increpatiónes per disciplínam exággerant, intus tamen dulcédinem per caritátem servant.  Præpónunt sibi in ánimo ipsos plerúmque quos córrigunt : melióres exístimant eos quoque quos júdicant.  Quod vidélicet agéntes, et per disciplínam súbditos, et per humilitátem custódiunt semetípsos.
The truly righteous indeed look down upon sinners, yet so as not to despair of them ; they abandon them, yet not as without hope ; they fight against them, yet not without loving them all the while ; for if they be behoven to chasten them grievously as touching the outer man, yet is it through charity which offereth sweetness to their inner man.  In their hearts they prefer before themselves them whom they are correcting ; they hold as better than themselves those whom they judge.  And thus doing, they watch by carefulness over them, which are committed unto their charge, and, by lowly-mindedness, over themselves.
V.  Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R.  Deo grátias.
V.  But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R.  Thanks be to God.
R.  Simus ergo imitatóres Dei * Et ambulémus in diléctione.
V.  Sicut et Christus diléxit nos et trádidit semetípsum pro nobis.
R.  Et ambulémus in diléctione.
V.  Glória Patri, et Fílio, et Spirítui Sancto.
R.  Et ambulémus in diléctione.
R.  Be ye therefore followers of God ; * And walk ye therefore in love.V.  For Christ also hath loved us and hath given himself for us.
R.  And walk ye therefore in love.V.  Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
R.  And walk ye therefore in love.
V.  Jube domne, (Dómine) benedícere.
V.  Vouchsafe, Reverend Father (O Lord), thy blessing.
Benedíctio 9: Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum.
R.  Amen.
Benediction 9: May the King of Angels give us fellowship with all the citizens of heaven.
R.  Amen.
Lesson ix
At contra, hi qui de falsa justítia superbíre solent, céteros quosque despíciunt, nulla infirmántibus misericórdia condescéndunt : quo se peccatóres esse non credunt, eo detérius peccatóres fiunt.  De quorum profécto número pharisæi exstíterant, qui dijudicántes Dóminum quod peccatóres suscíperet, arénti corde ipsum fontem misericórdiæ reprehendébant.  Sed quia ægri erant, ita ut ægros se esse nescírent : quátenus quod erant agnóscerent, cæléstis eos médicus blandis foméntis curat, benígnum paradígma óbjicit, et in eórum corde vúlneris tumórem premit.
On the other hand, they whose exaltation cometh of a false righteousness, look down upon their neighbour, and are softened by no mercy toward his misery ; and thereby are they all the more sinful, for they perceive not that they themselves also are sinners.  Of such were those Pharisees who judged the Lord because he received sinners, and, in the dryness of their own heart, rebuked the very Fountain of Mercy.  They were sick of so desperate a sickness that they knew not of themselves that they were sick ; but, that they might know that they were so, the heavenly Physician applied to them his tender ointments, and by means of a gracious parable, lanced the boil of their pride of heart.
V.  Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R.  Deo grátias.
V.  But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R.  Thanks be to God.
