Additional Collects of the Season

Epistle:  Colossians iii: 12-17

     A reading  from the  Epistle of  blessed Paul  the Apostle to the Colossians:
Brethren:  Put ye on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, the habit of mercy, benignity, humility, modesty, and patience:  bearing with  one another,  and forgiving  one another,  if anyone  has  a complaint against  another:   even as the Lord has forgiven you, so do you also  forgive.   But above all these things have charity, which is the bond  of perfection:   and  let the  peace of Christ reign in your hearts, wherein  you are also called in one body:  and be ye thankful. Let the  word of  Christ dwell  in  you  abundantly,  in  all  wisdom, teaching and  admonishing one  another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual canticles, singing in grace in your hearts to God.  All whatsoever you do in  word or  in work,  do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, giving thanks to God and the Father by Jesus Christ our Lord.

Gradual: Ps. xliii: 8-9

Thou hast delivered us, O Lord, from them that afflict us; and hast put them to shame that hate us. In God we will glory all the day, and in Thy name we will give praise for ever.
Alleluia, alleluia. From the depths I have cried to Thee, O Lord. Lord hear my prayer. Alleluia.

Gospel:  Matthew xiii: 24-30

+      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 man that sowed good seed in his field.  But while men were  asleep, his enemy came and oversowed cockle among the wheat, and went  his way.   And  when the  blade sprang  up and brought forth fruit, there  appeared also  the cockle.  And the servants of the good man of  the house  said to  him, 'Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field?   Whence  then came  the cockle?'  And he said to them, 'An enemy has  done this.'   And the servants said to him, 'Wilt thou that we go and gather it up?'  And he said, 'No, lest perhaps, gathering up the cockle,  you root up the wheat also together with it.  Suffer both to grow until the harvest, and at that time I will say to the reapers, '"Gather up  first the  cockle and bind it in bundles to burn, but the wheat gather ye into my barn."'"


Offertory: Ps. cxxix: 1-2

From the depths I have cried out to Thee, O Lord. Lord hear my prayer. From the depths I have cried out to Thee, O Lord.


We offer  Thee, O  Lord, the sacrifice of propitiation, that Thou mayest of  Thy mercy, absolve us from our sins, and Thyself direct our inconstant hearts.
