Additional Collectss of the Season

Epistle: Ephesians iv: 1-6

    A reading from the Epistle of blessed Paul the Apostle to the Ephesians:
Brethren: I, a prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the vocation in which you are called. With all humility and mildness, with patience, supporting one another in charity, careful to keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace. One body and one spirit, as you are called in one hope of your calling. One Lord, one faith, one baptism. One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in us all, who is blessed forever and ever. Amen.

Gradual: Ps xxxii: 12, 6

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; the people whom He has chosen for His inheritance. By the word of the Lord the heavens were established, and all the power of them by the spirit of His mouth.
Alleluia, alleluia. O Lord hear my prayer, and let my cry come unto Thee. Alleluia.


Gospel: Matthew xxii: 34-46

     +     The continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Matthew.
At that time, the Pharisees came to Jesus, and one of them, a doctor of the law, testing Him, asked, "Master, which is the great commandment of the law?" Jesus said to him, "Thou shalt love the Lord, thy God, with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind. This is the greatest and first commandment. The second is like unto it: Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.. On these two commandments depend the whole law and the prophets." And the Pharisees, being gathered together, Jesus asked them, saying, "What think you of the Christ; whose son is He?" They said to Him, "David's." He said to them, "How then does David, in spirit, call Him Lord, saying, 'The Lord said to my Lord, sit Thou at my right hand until I make thine enemies thy footstool?' If David then calls Him Lord, how is He his son? And no man was able to answer Him a word; neither dared any man, from that day forth, ask Him any more questions.


Offertory: Daniel ix: 9, 10, 18, 19

I, Daniel, prayed to my God, saying, "Hear, O Lord, the prayers of Thy servant. Show Thy face upon Thy sanctuary, and favorably look down upon this people upon whom Thy name is invoked, O God.


We humbly implore Thy majesty, O Lord, that the holy mysteries we are celebrating, may free us both from past sins and future transgressions.
