Additional Collects of the Season after the Purification

Epistle: 1 Thessalonians i: 2-10

     A reading  from the  Epistle of  blessed Paul  the Apostle to the Colossians:
Brethren:   We give  thanks to  God  always  for  you  all,  making  a remembrance of  you in  our prayers  without ceasing, being mindful of the work  of your faith and labor of your charity, and of the enduring of the  hope of  our Lord  Jesus Christ  before God  and our Father -- knowing, brethren,  beloved of God, of your election -- for our Gospel has not been unto you in word only, but in power also, and in the Holy Ghost, and  in great  fullness, as you know what manner of men we have been among  you for  your sakes.   And  you became  our followers, and followers of  the Lord,  receiving the  word in much tribulation, with joy of  the Holy  Ghost:   so that you were made a pattern to all that believe in  Macedonia and  in Achaia.   For from you spread abroad the word of  the Lord,  not only  in Macedonia  and in Achaia, but also in every place  your faith  in God  has gone  forth, so  that we need not speak of it.  They themselves relate how we were able to convince you; and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, and to wait for His Son from heaven (whom He raised up from the dead), Jesus, who has delivered us from the wrath to come.

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 xiii: 31-35

    +    The continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Matthew:
At that time, Jesus  spoke this  parable to the multitudes, "The kingdom of  heaven is like a grain of mustard seed, which man took and sowed in  his field: which is the least, indeed of all seeds:  butwhen it  is grown up, it is greater than all herbs and becomes a tree, so that  the birds of the air come and dwell in the branches thereof."Another parable  He spoke  to them,  "The kingdom  of heaven  is  like leaven, which  a woman  took and  hid in three measures of meal, until the whole  was leavened."  All these things Jesus spoke in parables tothe multitudes; and without parables He did not speak to them, that it might be  fulfilled which  was spoken  by the Prophet, saying, "I will open my  mouth in  parables; I  will  utter  things  hidden  from  the foundation of the world."


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  oblation, O  God, we  beseech Thee,  cleanse and renew, govern and protect us.
