Epistle:  Ecclesiasticus: xxiv

A reading from the wisdom books:
As the vine I have brought forth a pleasant odor, and my flowers are the fruit of honor and riches.  I am the mother of fair love, and of fear, and of holy hope.  In me is all the grace of the way and of the truth, in me is all hope of life and virtue.  Come over to me, all you who desire me, and be filled with my fruits.  For my spirit is sweet above honey, and my inheritance above honey and the honeycomb.  My memory is unto everlasting generations.  They who eat me shall yet hunger; and they who drink me shall yet thirst.  He who harkens to me shall not be confounded; and they who work by me shall not sin.  They who explain me shall have life everlasting.

Gradual:  Proverbs ix: 1

Wisdom has  built herself a house, she has hewn her out of seven pillars.  [Ps. lxxxvi]  Her foundations are in the holy mountains: the Lord loves the gates of Sion above all the dwellings of Jacob.
