Epistle: Ephesians vi: 10-17

    A reading from the Epistle of blessed Paul the Apostle to the Ephesians:
Brethren: Be strengthened in the Lord, and in the might of His power. Put on the armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the deceits of the devil. For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places. Therefore, take unto you the armor of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and to stand in all things perfect. Stand therefore having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breast-plate of justice, and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; in all things taking the shield of faith, wherewith you may be able to extinguish all the fiery darts of the most wicked one. And take unto you the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit which is the word of God.

Gradual: Ps. lxxxix: 1-2

Lord, Thou hast been our refuge from generation to generation. Before the mountains were made, or the earth and the world was formed; from eternity to eternity Thou art God.
Alleluia, alleluia. When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a barbarous people. Alleluia.

Gospel: Matthew xviii: 23-35

    +     The continuation of the holy Gospel according to Matthew.
At that time Jesus spoke to His disciples this parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like a king who would take an account of his servants. And when he had begun to take the account, one was brought to him that owed him ten thousand talents: and as he had not wherewith to pay, his lord commanded that he should be sold, and his wife and his children, and all that he had, and payment made. But that servant falling down, besought him, saying, 'Have patience with me and I will pay they all.' And the lord of that servant being moved with pity, let him go, and forgave him the debt. But when that servant was gone out, he found one of his fellow servants that owed him a hundred denarii: and laying hold of him, he throttled him, saying, 'Pay what thou owest.' And his fellow servant falling down besought him, saying, 'Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.' But he would not; but went and cast him into prison until he paid the debt. Now his fellow servants, seeing what was done, were very much grieved; and they came and told their lord all that was done. Then his lord called him and said to him, 'Thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all thy debt, because thou besought me; shouldst not thou then have had compassion also on thy fellow servant, even as I had compassion on thee? And his lord being angry delivered him to the torturers until he paid all the debt. So also shall my heavenly father do to you, if you forgive not every one his brother from your hearts.

Credo.

Offertory: Job i

There was a man in the land of Hus, whose name was Job, simple, and upright, and fearing God: whom Satan besought that he might tempt: and power was given him from the Lord over his possessions and his flesh; and he destroyed all his substance and his children; and wounded his flesh also with a grievous ulcer.

Secret:
