Grant, we  beseech Thee,  almighty God, that ever meditating upon the truths  Thou hast  proposed for  our intelligence, we may in every word and work of ours, do that which is pleasing to Thee

Additional Collects of the Season

Epistle: 1 Thessalonians i: 2-10

     A reading  from the  Epistle of  blessed Paul  the Apostle to the Thessalonians.
Brethren:   We give  thanks to  God  always  for  you  all,  making  a remembrance of  you in  our prayers  without ceasing, being mindful of the work  of your faith and labor of your charity, and of the enduring of the  hope of  our Lord  Jesus Christ  before God  and our Father -- knowing, brethren,  beloved of God, of your election -- for our Gospel has not been unto you in word only, but in power also, and in the Holy Ghost, and  in great  fullness, as you know what manner of men we have been among  you for  your sakes.   And  you became  our followers, and followers of  the Lord,  receiving the  word in much tribulation, with joy of  the Holy  Ghost:   so that you were made a pattern to all that believe in  Macedonia and  in Achaia.   For from you spread abroad the word of  the Lord,  not only  in Macedonia  and in Achaia, but also in every place  your faith  in God  has gone  forth, so  that we need not speak of it.  They themselves relate how we were able to convince you; and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, and to wait for His Son from heaven (whom He raised up from the dead), Jesus, who has delivered us from the wrath to come.

Gradual: Ps. xliii: 8-9

Thou hast delivered us, O Lord, from them that afflict us; and hast put them to shame that hate us. In God we will glory all the day, and in Thy name we will give praise for ever.
Alleluia, alleluia. From the depths I have cried to Thee, O Lord. Lord hear my prayer. Alleluia.

Gospel:  Matthew xiii: 31-35

+      The continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Matthew:
At that  time, Jesus  spoke this  parable to the multitudes, "The kingdom of  heaven is like a grain of mustard seed, which man took and sowed in  his field: which is the least, indeed of all seeds:  but when it  is grown up, it is greater than all herbs and becomes a tree, so that  the birds of the air come and dwell in the branches thereof."
    Another parable  He spoke  to them,  "The kingdom  of heaven  is  like leaven, which  a woman  took and  hid in three measures of meal, until the whole  was leavened."  All these things Jesus spoke in parables to the multitudes; and without parables He did not speak to them, that it might be  fulfilled which  was spoken  by the Prophet, saying, "I will open my  mouth in  parables; I  will  utter  things  hidden  from  the foundation of the world."


Offertory: Ps. cxxix: 1-2

From the depths I have cried out to Thee, O Lord. Lord hear my prayer. From the depths I have cried out to Thee, O Lord.


May this  oblation, O  God, we  beseech Thee,  cleanse and renew, govern and protect us.
