TRACT. Desiderium, p. 462. GOSPEL. Matt. x. 34. 42. - At that time : Jesus said to his disciples : Do not think that I caine to send peace upon earth: I came not to send peace, but the sword. For I came to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-inlaw. And a man's enemies against they of his own household. He that loveth his father or mother more than me, is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me, is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not up his cross, and followeth me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that shall lose his life for me, sha}l find it. He that receiveth you, receiveth me; and he that receiveth me, receiveth him that sent me. He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet, shall receive the reward of a prophet: and he that receiveth a just man in the namne of a just man, shall receive the reward of a just man. And whosoever shall give to drink to one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, amen, I say to you, he shall not lose his reward.

EPISTLE. 2 Tim. ii. 8. 10. ii. 10. 12.-Dcarly beloved: Be mindful that the Lord Jesus Christ is risen again from the dead, of the seed of David, according to my gospel. Wherein I labour even unto bands, as an evil doer: but the word of God is not bound. Therefore I endure all things for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation, which is in Christ Jesus, with heavenly glory. (Chap. ji.) But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, long-suffering, love, patience, persecutions, afflictions: such as came upon me at Antioch, at Iconium, and at Lystra : what persecutions I endured, and out of

them all the Lord delivered me. And all that will live godly in Jesus Christ, shall suffer persecution.

TRACT, Beatus, p. 465. GOSPEL. Matt. X. 26. 33.- At that time. Jesus said to his disciples : Nothing is covered that shall not be revealed, nor 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 them 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. Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing: and not one of thern shall fall to the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: better are you than many sparrows. Every one therefore that shall confess me before men, I will also coulfess him before my Father who is in heaven.

LESSON. Wisd. v. 1. 5.—The just shall stand with great constancy against those that have afflicted them, and taken away their labours. These seeing it shall be troubled with terrible fear, and shall be amazed at the suddenness of their unexpected salvation, saying within themselves, repenting and groaning for anguish of spirit : These are they whom we had some time in derision, and for a parable of reproach. We fools esteemed their life, madness, and their end without honour. Behold, how they are numbered among the children of God, and their lot is amongst the saints. Instead of the foregoing Lesson, the EPISTLE,

2 Tim. ii. p. 468, is occasionally read. Alleluia, Alleluia. V. The heavens shall confess thy wonders, O Lord, and thy truth also in the church of the saints. Alleluia. V.

GOSPEL. John xv. 1. 7.At that time : Jesus said to his disciples : I am the true vine; and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me, that beareth not fruit, he will take away: and every one that beareth fruit, he will purge it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now you are clean by reason of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abide in the vine, so neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine ; you the branches : he that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit: for without me you can do nothing. If any one abide not in me, he shall be cast forth as a branch, and shall wither, and they shall gather him up, and cast him into the
