Additional Collects of the Season

Epistle:  Romans xii: 16-21

     A reading  from the  Epistle of  blessed Paul  the Apostle to the Romans:
Brethren:   Be not  wise in  your own conceits.  To no man render evil for evil; providing good things not only in the sight of God, but also in the sight of men.  If it be possible, as much as in you, have peace with all  men.   Revenge not  yourselves, my  dearly beloved, but give place unto  wrath.   For it  is written,  "'Vengeance in Mine.  I will repay,' saith  the Lord."   But  if thine enemy be hungry, give him to eat; if  he thirst,  give him  to drink; for in doing this, thou shalt heap coals  of fire  upon his  head.   Be not  overcome by  evil,  but overcome evil by good.

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 viii: 1-13

+      The continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Matthew:
At that  time, when  Jesus was  come down  from  the  mountain,  great multitudes followed  Him:   and behold,  a leper  came and adored Him, saying, "Lord,  if Thou  wilt, Thou  canst make me clean."  And Jesus, stretching forth His hand, touched him, saying, "I will.  Be thou made clean."   And forthwith,  the leprosy was cleansed.  And Jesus said to him, "See  that thou  tell no  man.   But go  and show  thyself to  the priests, and offer the gift which Moses commanded for a testimony unto them."
     And when  He had  entered into  Capharnaum, there  came to  Him a centurion, beseeching Him, and saying, "Lord, my servant lies at home, sick with  the palsy, and is grievously tormented."  And Jesus said to him, "I  will come and heal him."  And the centurion answered, saying, "Lord, I  am not  worthy that  Thou shouldst  enter under my roof, but only say  the word,  and my  servant shall  be healed.  For I am a man subject to  authority, and  having soldiers  under me.   I say to one,'Go,' and  he goes;   and to another, 'Come,' and he comes;  and to myservant, 'Do  this,' and  he does  it."    And  Jesus,  hearing  this, marvelled, and  said to them that followed Him, "Amen, I say to you, Ihave not sound such great faith in Israel.  And I say to you that many shall come from the east and the west, and shall sit down with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven:  but the children of the kingdom shall  be cast out into the exterior darkness, and there shall be weeping  and gnashing  of teeth."  And Jesus said to the centurion, "Go, and  as thou  hast believed,  so be  it done  to thee."   And the servant was healed at the same hour


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.
