Introit: Ps. lxxxv: 1, 2, 3
Bow down Thine ear, O Lord, to me and hear me. Save Thy servant,
O my God, that trusteth in Thee. Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I have
cried to Thee all day. [Ps.] Give joy to the soul of Thy servant,
for to Thee, O Lord, have I lifted up my soul. Glory be.... Bow
down Thine ear, O Lord, to me and hear me. Save Thy servant, O my
God, that trusteth in Thee. Have mercy on my, O Lord, for I have
cried to Thee all day.
Let Thy continual pity cleanse and defend Thy Church, we beseech
Thee, O Lord. And because it cannot continue in safety without Thee,
govern it evermore by Thy help.
Collectsof the Season
Epistle: Galatians v: 25,26; vi: 1-10
A reading from the Epistle of blessed Paul the Apostle to the
Brethren: If we live in the spirit, let us also walk in the spirit.
Let us not be desirous of vain-glory, provoking one another, envying
one another. Brethren, if a man be overtaken in any fault, you, who
are spiritual, instruct such a one in the spirit of meekness,
considering thyself, lest thou be tempted. Bear ye one another's
burdens, and so you shall fulfill the law of Christ. For if any man
thinks himself to be something, whereas he is nothing, he deceives
himself. But let everyone prove his own work, and so he shall have
glory in himself only, and not in another. For everyone shall bear
his own burden. And let him that is instructed in the word,
communicate to him that instructs him, in all good things. Be not
deceived; God is not mocked; for what things a man shall sow, those
also shall he reap. For he that soweth in his flesh, of the flesh
also shall reap corruption. But he that soweth in the spirit, of the
spirit shall reap life everlasting. And in doing good, let us not
fail; for in due time we shall reap, not failing. Therefore, while
we have time, let us work good to all men, but especially to those who
are of the household of the faith.
Gradual: Ps. xci: 2-3
It is good to give praise to the Lord, and to sing to Thy name, O
most High. To show forth Thy mercy in the morning, and Thy truth in
Alleluia, alleluia. For the Lord is a great God, and a great
King over all the earth. Alleluia.
Gospel: Luke vii: 11-16
+ The continuation of the holy Gospel according to Luke:
At that time, Jesus went into a city called Naim; and there went with
Him His disciples, and a great multitude. And when He came nigh to
the city, behold, a dead man was carried out, the only son of his
mother, and she was a widow, and many people of the city were with
her. And when the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her, and said to
her, "Weep not." And he came near and touched the bier. And they
that carried it stood still. And He said, "Young man, I say to thee,
Arise." And he that was dead sat up and began to speak. And He
delivered him to his mother. And there came a great fear on all. And
they glorified God, saying, "A great prophet is risen up amongst us,
and God has visited His people.
Offertory: Ps. xxxix 2, 3, 4
With expectation I have waited for the Lord, and He had regard to
me; and He heard my prayer, and He put a new canticle into my mouth, a
song to our God.
May Thy Sacraments, O Lord, be our safeguard, and ever defend us
against the attacks of the evil one.

Communion: John vi: 52
The bread that I will give is My flesh for the life of the world.
In soul and in body, O Lord, may we be ruled by the operation of
this heavenly gift; that the graces flowing therefrom, and not the
impulses of nature, may inspire all our actions.
