Epistle: Philippians i: 6-11

    A reading from the Epistle of blessed Paul the Apostle to the Philippians:
Brethren: we are confident in the Lord Jesus, that He who has begun a good work in you, will perfect it unto the day of Jesus Christ. As it is proper for me to think this for you all, for that I have you in my heart, and that in my bonds, and in the defense and confirmation of the Gospel, you are all partakers of my joy. For God is my witness, how I long after you in Jesus Christ. And this I pray, that your charity may more and more abound in knowledge and in all understanding; that you may approve the better things; that you may be sincere and without offense unto the day of Christ; filled with the fruit of justice, through Jesus Christ unto the glory and praise of God.

Gradual: Ps. cxxxii: 1-2

Behold how good and how pleasant it is when brethren dwell together in unity. It is like the precious ointment on the head, that ran down upon the beard, the beard of Aaron.
Alleluia, alleluia. They that fear the Lord, let them hope in Him; He is their helper and protector. Alleluia.

Gospel: Matthew xxii: 15-21

    +    The continuation of the holy Gospel according to Saint Matthew:
At that time, the Pharisees went and consulted among themselves, how to ensnare Jesus in His speech. And they sent to Him their disciples with the Herodians, saying: "Master, we know that Thou art a true speaker, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest Thou for any man, for Thou dost not regard the person of men. Tell us therefore, what dost Thou think? Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?" But Jesus knowing their wickedness, said, "Why do you tempt Me, ye hypocrites? Show me the coin of the tribute." And they offered Him a denarius. And Jesus said to them, "Whose image and inscription is this?" And they said to Him, "Caesar's." Then He said to them: "Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar's; and to God the things that are God's.



Offertory: Esther xiv: 12, 13

Remember me, O Lord, Thou who rulest above all power; and give a well ordered speech in my mouth, that my words may be pleasing in the sight of the prince.


Grant unto us, O merciful God, that this saving oblation may unceasingly cleanse us from our faults and keep us from all harm.
