GOSPEL. John xiv. 1. 13.-At that time: Jesus said to his disciples : Let not your hearts be troubled. You believe in God, believe also in' me. In my Father's house there are many mansions. If not, I would have told you, that I go to prepare a place for you. And if I shall go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and will take you to myself, that where I am, you also may be. And whither í go you know, and the way you know. Thomas saith to him: Lord we know not whither thou goest : and how can we know the way : Jesus saith to him: I am the way, and the truth and the life. No man cometh to the Father, but by me. If you had known me, you would without doubt have known my Father also: and from henceforth - you shall know him, and you have seen him. Philip

II. St. ATHANASIUS,, bp. c. D.
Mass XI. p. 484, except EPISTLE. 2 Cor. iv. 5. 15. Brethren: We preach not ourselves, but Jesus Christ our Lord: and ourselves your servants through Jesus. For God who commanded the light to shine out of darktiess, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of
the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ Jesus. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency may be of the power of God, and not of us. In all things we suffer tribulation, but are not distressed: we are straitened, but are not destitute: we suffer persecution, but are not forsaken: we are cast down, but we perish not: always bearing about in our body the mortification of Jesus, that the life also of Jesus may be made manifest in our bodies. For we who live are always delivered unto death for Jesus sake: that the life also of Jesus may be made manifest in our mortal flesh. So then death worketh in us, but life in you. But having the same spirit of faith, as it is written: I believed, for which cause I have spoken: we also believe, for which cause we speak also: knowing that he who raised up Jesus, will raise us up also with Jesus, and place us with you.

GOSPEL. Matt. x. 23. 33.--At that time : Jesus said to his disciples : When they shall persecute you in this city tlee into another. Amen I say to you, you shall not finish all the cities of Israel: till the Son of Man come. The disciple is not above the master, nor the servant above his lord. It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the good man of the house Beelzebub, how much more them of his household? Therefore fear them not. For nothing is covered that shall not be revealed, not hid that shall not be known. That which I tell you in the dark, speak ye in the light: and that which you hear in the ear, preach ye upon the house tops. And fear ye not thein that kill the body, and
are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him that can destroy both soul and body into hell. CREDO.

EPISTLE. Phil. ii. 5. 11.--Brethren: Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus; who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men, and in habit found as a man. He humbled himself, becoming obedient unto death, even to the death of the cross. For which cause God also hath exalted him, and hath given him a name which is above all names : that in the name of Jesus * every knee should bow, of these that are in heaven, on earth, and under the earth. And that every tongue should confess that the Lord Jesus Cbrist is in the glory of God the Father. Allel. Allel.
