GOSPEL. John. i. 35. 51. At that time John stood, and two of his disciples : and beholding Jesus walking, he saith : Behold the Lamb of God. And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. And Jesus turning, and seeing them following him, saith to them: What seek you? Who said to him: Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master, where dwellest thou? He saith to them: Come and see. They came, and saw where he abode, and they staid with him that day : now it was about the tenth hour. And Andrew the brother of Simon Peter was one of the two who had heard of John, and followed him. He findeth first his brother Simon, and saith to him: We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ. And he brought him to Jesus.' And Jesus looking upon him, said: Thou art Simon, the Son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is inierpreted, Peter. On the following day he would go forth into Galilee, and he findeth Philip. And Jesus saith to him: Follow me. Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith to him: We have found him of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets did write, Jesus the son of Joseph of Naza. reth. And Nathanael saith to him ; Can any thing of good come from Nazareth ? Philip saith to him: Come and see. Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and he saith to him: Behold an Israelite in
deed, in whom there is no guile. Nathaniel saith to him: Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said to him: Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig-tree, I saw thee, Nathaniel answered him, and said: Rabbi, thou art the Son of God, thou art the King of Israel. Jesus answered, and said to him: Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig-tree, thou believest: greater things than these shalt thou see. And he saith to him: Amen, amen I say to you, you shall see the heaven opened, and the Angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.

EPISTLE. Rom. x. 10.18.- Brethren : With the heart we believe unto justice: but, with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith: Whosoever believeth in him, shall not be confounded. For there is no distinction of the Jew and the Greek: for the same is Lord over all, rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved. How then shall they call on him, in whom they have not believed? Or how shall they believe him, of whom they have not heard ? And how shall they hear, without a preacher? And how shall they preach, unless they be sent ? as it is written: How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, of them that bring good tidings of good things ? But all do not obey the gospel. For Isaias saith : Lord, who hath believed our report? Faith then cometh by hearing: and hearing by the word of Christ. But I say: have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound hath gone forth into all the .earth, and their words unto the ends of the whole world

And going on from thence, he saw two other brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets: and he called them.
