Epistle: Romans xii: 16-21

    A reading from the Epistle of blessed Paul the Apostle to the Romans:
Brethren: Be not wise in your own conceits. To no man render 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 in you, have peace with all men. Revenge not yourselves, my dearly beloved, but give place unto wrath. For it is written, "'Vengeance in Mine. I will repay,' saith the Lord." But if thine enemy be hungry, give him to eat; if he thirst, give him to drink; for in doing this, thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head. Be not overcome by evil, but overcome evil by good.

Gradual: Psalm ci: 16-17

The Gentiles shall fear Thy name, O Lord, and all the kings of the earth Thy glory. For the Lord has built up Sion, and He shall be seen in His glory.
Alleluia, alleluia. The Lord has reigned, let the earth rejoice: let the many islands be glad. Alleluia.

Gospel: Matthew viii: 1-13

    +    The continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Matthew:
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, the leprosy was cleansed. And Jesus said to him, "See that thou tell no man. But go and show thyself to the priests, 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 lies at home, sick with the palsy, and is grievously tormented." And Jesus said to him, "I will come and heal him." And the centurion answered, saying, "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 am a man subject to authority, and having soldiers under me. I say to one, 'Go,' and he goes; and to another, 'Come,' and he comes; and to my servant, 'Do this,' and he does it." And Jesus, hearing this, marvelled, and said to them that followed Him, "Amen, I say to you, I have not found such 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 and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven: but the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into the exterior darkness, and 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.


Offertory: Psalm cxvii: 16,17

The right hand of the Lord hath wrought strength: the right hand of the Lord has exalted me: I shall not die but live, and shall declare the works of the Lord.


May this offering, O Lord, we pray Thee, cleanse away our sins, and sanctify the bodies and minds of Thy servants for the celebration of this sacrifice.
