Station: St. Peter's

Introit:  Psalm xxx: 3-4

Be Thou unto me a God, a protector, and a place of refuge to save me.   For Thou  art my strength and my refuge, and for Thy name's sake Thou wilt  lead me,  and nourish  me.   [Ps.]  In Thee, O Lord, have I hoped, let  me never  be confounded.   Deliver  me in Thy justice, and save me.  Glory be.  Be Thou....

Do Thou,  we beseech  Thee, O  Lord, mercifully hear our prayers, that we  being loosed  from the  bonds of  our sins,  may by  Thee  be defended against all adversity.

Collects of the Season

Epistle: 1 Corinthians  xiii: 1-13

     A reading  from the  epistle of  blessed Paul  the Apostle to the Corinthians.
Brethren:   If I  should speak  with the tongues of men and of angels, but do  not have  charity, I  have become  as a  sounding brass  or  a tinkling cymbal.   And  if I  have prophecy and know all mysteries and all knowledge,  and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains, yet do not  have charity,  I am nothing.  And if I distribute all my goods to feed  the poor,  and if  I deliver my body to be burned, yet do not have charity,  it profits  me nothing.   Charity  is patient, is kind; charity does  not envy,  is not  pretentious, is not puffed up, is not ambitious, is not self-seeking, is not provoked;  thinks no evil, does not rejoice  over wickedness, but rejoices with the truth;  bears with all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Charity never  fails, whereas  prophecies will  disappear, and tongues will cease,  and knowledge will be destroyed.  For we know in part and we prophesy  in part;   but  when that which is perfect has come, that which is  imperfect will  be done  away with.   When  I was a child, I spoke as a child, I felt as a child, I thought as a child.  Now that I have become  a man, I have put away the things of a child.  We see now through a  mirror in  an obscure manner, but then face to face.  Now I know in  part, but  then I  shall know  even as I have been known.  So there abide  faith, hope,  and charity, these three;  but the greatest of these is charity.

Gradual: Psalm lxxvi: 15, 16

Thou art  the God  that alone  dost wonders.   Thou hast made Thy power known among the nations.  With Thine arm Thou hast delivered Thy people, the children of Israel and of Joseph.

Tract: Psalm xcix: 1-2
The Tract is omitted in ferial Masses.

Sing joyfully  to God,  ll the  earth.   Serve ye  the Lord  with gladness.   Come in  before His  presence with  exceedingly great joy. Know ye  that the  Lord He  is God.  He made us, and not we ourselves;  but we are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

Gospel: Luke xviii: 31-43

     +  The continuation of the holy Gospel according to Luke.
At that  time, Jesus  taking to  Himself  the  Twelve  said  to  them, "Behold, we  are going  up to Jerusalem, and all things that have been written  by   the  prophets   concerning  the   Son  of  Man  will  be accomplished.   For He  will be delivered to the Gentiles, and will be mocked and  scourged and spit upon;  and after they have scourged Him, they will  put Him to death; and on the third day He will rise again."  And they  understood none  of these things, and this saying was hidden from them  -- neither  did they get to know the things that were being said.
     Now it  came to  pass as  He drew near to Jericho, that a certain blind man  was sitting  by the  wayside, begging.  But hearing a crowd passing by,  he inquired  what this  might be.  And they told him that Jesus of  Nazareth was  passing by.  And he cried out, saying, "Jesus, Son of  David, have  mercy on me!"  And they who went in front angrily tried to silence him.  But he cried out all the louder, "Son of David, have mercy on me!"  Then Jesus stopped and commanded that he should bebrought to  Him.   And when  he drew near, He asked him, saying, "What wouldst thou  have me  do for  thee?"   And he said, "Lord, that I may see."   And Jesus said to him, "Receive thy sight, thy faith has saved thee."   And  at  once  he  received  his  sight,  and  followed  him, glorifying God.  And all the people upon seeing it gave praise to God. 


Offertory: Psalm cxviii: 12-13

Blessed art  Thou, O Lord.  Teach me Thy justifications.  With my lips I have pronounced all the judgments of Thy mouth.


May these  sacrifices, we  beseech  Thee,  O  Lord,  cleanse  our offences, and  sanctify the  bodies and  minds of Thy servants for the celebration of this sacrifice.
