(Sunday of the Paralytic)

Gospel (Mk 2,1-12): At that time, Jesus returned to Capernaum after some days, it became known that he was at home. Many gathered together so that there was no longer room for them, not even around the door, and he preached the word to them. They came bringing to him a paralytic carried by four men. Unable to get near Jesus because of the crowd, they opened up the roof above him. After they had broken through, they let down the mat on which the paralytic was lying. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Child, your sins are forgiven.” Now some of the scribes were sitting there asking themselves, “Why does this man speak that way? He is blaspheming. Who but God alone can forgive sins?” Jesus immediately knew in his mind what they were thinking to themselves, so he said, “Why are you thinking such things in your hearts? Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Rise, pick up your mat, and walk’? But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority to forgive sins on earth” he said to the paralytic, “I say to you, rise, pick up your mat, and go home.” He rose, picked up his mat at once, and went away in the sight of everyone. They were all astounded and glorified God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this.”


Євангелія (Мр 2,1-12): Коли ж по кількох днях Ісус повернувся до Капернауму, чутка пішла, що він у домі. І там зібралося стільки народу, що не було більш місця, навіть перед дверима; а він промовляв до них словом. І от прийшли до нього, несучи розслабленого; несли його четверо. А що із-за народу не могли донести до нього, розкрили стелю над місцем, де він був, й отвором спустили ліжко, на якому лежав розслаблений. Ісус, уздрівши їхню віру, до розслабленого й каже: “Сину, відпускаються тобі твої гріхи.” А були й деякі книжники що сиділи там та й міркували собі: “І як може цей так говорити? Він богохульствує! Хто може прощати гріхи, крім одного лише Бога?” Ісус же, вмить збагнувши духом, що вони собі таке думають, до них і каже: “Чого таке ось намислюєте у ваших серцях? Що легше - сказати розслабленому: Відпускаються тобі гріхи, а чи сказати: Встань, візьми твоє ліжко й ходи? Та щоб ви знали, що Син Чоловічий має владу на землі гріхи відпускати,” - мовить до розслабленого: “Кажу тобі: Встань, візьми своє ліжко і йди до свого дому.” Устав той - і зараз же, взявши ліжко, вийшов на очу всіх; тож чудувалися всі, хвалили Бога й мовляли: “Ніколи ми такого не бачили!”
