The Lord saith: "I think thoughts of peace, and not of affliction. You shall call upon Me, and I will hear you, and I will bring back your captivity from all places." [Ps.] Lord, Thou hast blessed Thy Land. Thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob. Glory be.... The Lord saith....


Stir up the wills of Thy faithful, we beseech Thee, O Lord;  that they, more earnestly seeking the fruit of good works, may receive more abundantly the gifts of Thy loving kindness.

Epistle: Colossians i: 9-14

     A reading  from the  Epistle of  blessed Paul  the Apostle to the Colossians:
Brethren:    We cease  not to  pray for you, and to beg that you may be filled with  the knowledge  of the  will of  God, and  all wisdom  and spiritual understanding;  that you  may walk  worthy of  God,  in  all things pleasing,  being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge  of God;  strengthened with  all might  according to the power of  His glory,  in all  patience and  long suffering;  with joy; giving thanks  to God  the Father;  who  has  made  us  worthy  to  be partakers of  the lot  of the  saints in  light; who hath delivered us from the  power of darkness, and has translated us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the remission of sins.

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 xxiv: 15-35

+      The continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Matthew:
At that  time,   Jesus  said  to  His  disciples,  "When  you  see  the abomination of  desolation, which was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place; (he that readeth, let him understand) then they that  are in  Judea, let them flee to the mountains;  and he that is on the house-top, let him not come down to take anything out of his house;   and he  that is in the field, let him not go back to take his coat.   And woe  to them  that are  with child,  and that give suck in those days.  But pray that your flight be not in the winter, or on the sabbath:   for there  shall then be great tribulation, such as has not been found  from the  beginning of  the world until now, neither shall be:   and unless  those days  had been  shortened, no  flesh would  be saved;   but for the sake of the elect, those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say to you, 'Lo, here is Christ,' or 'there;' do not believe  him;   for there  shall arise  false  Christs and  false prophets, which  shall show  great signs  and  wonders,  in  order  to deceive (if  possible) even  the elect.   Behold I have told it to you beforehand.   If therefore  they say  to you,  'Behold, He  is in  the desert,' go  not out;   or, 'Behold, He is in the closets,' believe it not.   For as  lightning comes out of the east, and appears even unto the west,  so also shall the coming of the Son of man be.  Wheresoever the body  shall be,  there also shall the eagles be gathered together. And immediately  after the tribulation of those days, the sun shall be darkened, and  the moon  shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from  heaven, and  the powers of heaven shall be moved.  And then shall appear  the sign of the Son of man in heaven, and then shall all the tribes  of the  earth mourn;  and they  shall see  the Son  of man coming in  the clouds  of heaven  with great power and majesty; and He shall send His angels with a trumpet and a great voice, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest parts of the heavens to the utmost bounds of them.   "And from  the fig tree learn a parable:  when the branch thereof is now tender, and the leaves come forth, you know that summer is nigheven at  the doors.   Amen I say to you that this generation shall not pass away  till all these things be done.  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away."


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.


Be favorable,  O Lord,  to our  supplications, and  accepting the offerings and  prayers of  Thy people,  convert the  hearts of  all to Thee;   that being  delivered from earthly cravings, we may pass on to heavenly desires.
