Epistle: Wisdom v: 1-5

A reading from the Book of Wisdom.
Then shall the just stand with great constancy against those who have afflicted them and taken away their labors. These seeing it shall be troubled with terrible fear, and shall be amazed at the suddenness of their unexpected salvation, saying within themselves, repenting and groaning for anguish of spirit: "These are they whom we held for some time in derision and for a parable of reproach. We fools assumed their life madness and their end without honor; behold how they are numbered among the children of God, and their lot is among the saints."

Alleluia: Psalm xci: 13

Alleluia, alleluia. The just shall flourish like the palm tree; he shall grow up like the cedar of Lebanon. Alleluia. [Osee xiv: 6] The just shall spring as the lily: and flourish forever before the Lord. Alleluia.

Gospel: Matthew xx: 20-23
 The continuation of the holy Gospel according to Matthew:

At that time, the mother of the sons of Zebedee came to Jesus with her sons, worshipping, and asking something of Him. And He said to her, "What wilt thou?" She said to him, "Say that these, my two sons, may sit, the one on Thy right hand, and the other on Thy left in Thy kingdom. And Jesus, answering, said, "You know not what you ask. Can you drink the chalice that I shall drink?" They said to Him, "We can." He said to them, "My chalice indeed you shall drink; but to sit on my right hand or left hand is not Mine to give you, but to them for whom it is prepared by My Father.


Offertory: Ps. lxxxviii: 6

The heavens shall confess Thy wonders, O Lord, and Thy truth in the Church of the saints, alleluia.


Receive our gifts and our prayers, we beseech Thee, O Lord, and cleanse us by heavenly mysteries, and mercifully hear us. Through our Lord.

O Lord, we beseech Thee, that refreshed with heavenly Bread, it may nourish us unto life everlasting. Through our Lord.
