TRINITY SUNDAY. QINCE without a belief of the existence of Three D adorable Persons in the Godhead, we cannot be Christians, let us this day beseech Almighty God to strengthen our faith in the mystery of the ever blessed Trinity, and teach us implicitly to submit to whatever other dogma the Church proposes to our belief. Let us also pray for those, who, taking weak reason for their guide in matters of religion, refuse to believe what God himself has revealed concerning his own incomprehensible Majesty.

GOSPEL. of the I. Sund. after Pentecost. Luke vi. 36. 41.–At that time : Jesus said to his disciples : Be ye merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you shall be forgiven. Give, and it shall be given to you; good measure and pressed down and shaken together and running over shall be given into your bosoin, For with the same measure that you shall mete withal it shall be measured to you again. And he spoke also to them a similitude : Can the blind lead the blind ? do they not both fall into the ditch? The disciple is not above his master : but every one shall be perfect, if he be as his master. And why seest thou the mote in thy 'brother's eye; but the beam that is in thy own eye thou considerest not? or how canst thou say to thy brother: Brother, let me pull the mote out of thy eye, when thou thyself seest not the beam in thy own eye? Hypocrite, cast first the beam out of thine own eye, and then thou shalt see clearly to take out the mote from thy brother's eye. Deo gratias.
CORPUS CHRISTI. THIS Festival (instituted about the middle of the
1 thirteenth century by a Bull of Urban IV.) was received and confirmed by the General Council of Vienne, anno 1311, in opposition to the errors of some, who then, as well as now, preferred a false philosophy to the belief of all Christians in the preceding ages.
The Processions in Catholic countries on this day, and during its Octave, were instituted as triumphs of Christ and his church over the obstinate enemies of this adorable mystery; and as public testimonies of the faith, love and gratitude of the true children of God.

EPISTLE. 1 Cor. xi. 23.-Brethren: I have received of the Lord, that which also 1 delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus, the same night in which he was betrayed, took bread, and giving thanks, broke, and said : Take ye, and eat : this is my body which shall be delivered for you : this do for the commemoration of me. In like manner also the chalice, after he had supped, saying: This Chalice is the New Testament in my blood: this do ye, as often as you shall drink it, for the commemoration of me. For as often as you shall eat this bread, and drink this chalice, you shall shew the death of the Lord, until he cosne. Therefore whosoever shall eat this bread, or drink of the chalice of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man prove liimself: and so let him eat of that bread, and
drink of the chalice. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh judgment to himself, not discerning the body of the Lord.
