Psalm 96: 7, 8
ADORE GOD, all you His angels: Sion heard, and was glad; and the
daughters of Juda rejoiced. Ps. 96, 1. The
Lord hath reigned; let the earth rejoice: let many islands be glad.
V. Glory be to the
Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the
beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
COLLECT - ALMIGHTY, eternal God, look with mercy
upon our infirmities, and stretch forth the right hand of Thy majesty to
protect us. Through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and
reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without
Romans 12: 16-21
BRETHREN, be not wise in your own conceits. To no man rendering evil for
evil: providing good things not only in the sight of God, but also in
the sight of men. If it be possible, as much as it is in you, having
peace with all men. Revenge not yourselves, my dearly beloved; but give
place unto wrath, for it is written, Revenge is mine; I will repay,
saith the Lord. But if thy enemy be hungry, give him to eat; if he
thirst, give him to drink, for doing this, thou shalt heap coals of fire
upon his head. Be not overcome by evil, but overcome evil by good.
Psalm 101: 16, 17
THE GENTILES shall fear Thy
name, O Lord, and all the kings of the earth Thy glory.
V. For the Lord
hath built up Sion, and He shall be seen in His majesty.
- ALLELUIA, alleluia.
V. Ps. 96, 1.
The Lord hath reigned, let the earth rejoice: let many islands be glad.
Matthew 8: 1-13
AT THAT time, when Jesus
was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him; and
behold a leper came and adored Him, saying, Lord, if Thou wilt Thou
canst make Me clean. And Jesus stretching forth His hand, touched him,
saying, I will, be thou made clean: and forthwith his leprosy was
cleansed. And Jesus saith to him, See thou tell no man: but go, show
thyself to the priest, and offer the gift which Moses commanded for a
testimony unto them. And when He had entered into Capharnaum, there came
to Him a centurion beseeching Him, and saying, Lord, my servant lieth at
home sick of the palsy, and is grievously tormented. And Jesus saith to
him, I will come and heal him. And the centurion making answer, said,
Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof: but only
say the word, and my servant shall be healed.
For I also am a
man subject to authority, having under me soldiers: and I say to this
man, Go, and he goeth: and to another, Come, and he cometh: and to my
servant, Do this, and he doth it. And Jesus hearing this, marvelled; and
said to them that followed him, Amen I say to you, I have not found so
great faith in Israel. And I say to you, that many shall come from the
east and the west, and shall sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in
the kingdom of heaven; but the children of the kingdom shall be cast
into the exterior darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of
teeth. And Jesus said to the centurion, Go, and as thou hast believed,
so be it done to thee: and the servant was healed at the same hour.
Psalm 117: 16, 17
THE RIGHT hand of the Lord hath wrought strength, the right hand of the
Lord hath exalted me: I shall not die, but live, and shall declare the
works of the Lord.
SECRET - MAY THIS offering, we beseech Thee, O
Lord, wipe out our sins, and sanctify the bodies and minds of Thy
servants for the celebration of the sacrifice. Through Our Lord Jesus
Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the
Holy Ghost, God, world without end. Amen.
PREFACE (Preface of the Most Holy Trinity) - It it truly meet
and just, right and for our salvation, that we should at all times, and
in all places, give thanks unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty,
everlasting God; Who, together with Thine only-begotten Son, and the
Holy Ghost, art one God, one Lord: not in the oneness of a single
Person, but in the Trinity of one substance. For what we believe by Thy
revelation of Thy glory, the same do we believe of Thy Son, the same of
the Holy Ghost, without difference or separation. So that in confessing
the true and everlasting Godhead, distinction in persons, unity in
essence, and equality in majesty may be adored. Which the Angels and
Archangels, the Cherubim also and Seraphim do praise: who cease not
daily to cry out, with one voice saying:
COMMUNION LUKE 4:22
THEY ALL wondered at these things, which proceeded from the mouth of
LORD, Who dost give freely the enjoyment of so great mysteries, we
beseech Thee that Thou wouldst vouchsafe to render us truly worthy to
receive their effects. Through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who
liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world
without end. Amen.
