Give peace, O Lord, to them that patiently wait for Thee, that Thy prophets may be found faithful. Hear the prayers of Thy servant, and of Thy people Israel. [Ps.] I rejoiced at the things that were said to me, "We shall go into the house of the Lord." Glory be.... Give peace....

Epistle: 1 Corinthians i: 4-8

    A reading from the First Epistle of blessed Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians:
Brethren: I give thanks to my God always for you, for the grace of God that is given you in Christ Jesus, that in all things you are made rich in Him, in all utterance and in all knowledge, as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you, so that nothing is wanting in you in any grace, waiting for the manifestation of our Lord Jesus Christ. Who also will confirm you into the end without crime, in the day of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Gospel: Matthew ix: 1-8

+ The continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Matthew:
At that time, Jesus entering into a boat, passed over the water and came to His own city. And behold they brought Him one sick of the palsy lying in a bed. And Jesus, seeing their faith, said to the man sick of the palsy, "Be of good heart, son, thy sins are forgiven thee." And behold, some of the scribes said within themselves, "He blasphemes!" And Jesus seeing their thoughts said to them, "Why do you think evil in your hearts? Is it easier to say, 'Thy sins are forgiven thee,' or to say 'Arise and walk'? But that you may know that the Son of man has power on earth to forgive sins," He said to the man with palsy, "Arise, take up thy bed, and go into thine house." And the multitude, seeing it, feared, and glorified God who had given such power to men.


Offertory: Exodus xxiv: 4, 5

O God who, through the communion in this venerable sacrifice, dost make us partakers of the one supreme Godhead, grant, we beseech Thee, that having come to the knowledge of Thy truth, we may obtain it by worthy lives.
