Luke xii. 1. 8.



T that time: Jesus said to his disciples: Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. For there is nothing covered, which shall not be revealed; nor hidden, that shall not be known. For whatsoever things you have spoken in darkness, shall be published in the light; and that which you have spoken in the ear in chambers, shall be proclaimed on the house-tops. And I say to you my friends: be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will shew you whom you shall fear fear ye him, who, after he hath killed, hath power to cast into hell. Yea, I say to you, fear him. Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: you are of more value than many sparrows. And I say to you. Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of Man also confess before the Angels of God. OFFERT. Ps. v. All that love thy name shall glory in thee, because thou, O Lord, wilt bless the righteous man: thou hast covered us, O Lord, as with the shield of thy love.

LESSON. Acts iii.


N those days: Peter and John went up to the temple at the ninth hour of prayer. And a certain man, who had been lame from his mother's womb, was carried; whom they laid every day at the gate of the temple, which was called the Beautiful Gate, that he might ask alms of such as went into the temple. He, when he saw Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked to receive alms. But Peter with John looking at him, said : Look at us. And he looked earnestly at them, hoping that he should receive something from them. Then Peter said: Silver and Gold I have none; but what I have, that I give thee; in the name of Jesus of Nazareth rise up and walk. And taking him by the right hand, he raised him up; and forthwith his feet and soles received strength. And he leaping up, stood and walked; and he went with them into the temple, walking and leaping and praising God. And all the people saw him walking and praising God. And they knew him, that it was he who sat begging alms at the Beautiful Gate of the temple; and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.

T that time: Jesus said to Simon Peter; Simon, son of John, lovest thou me more than these? He

saith to him; Yea, Lord, thou knowest that I love thee. He saith to him, Feed my lambs. He saith to him again; Simon, son of John, lovest thou me? He saith to him; Yea, Lord, thou knowest that I love thee. He saith to him; Feed my lambs. He saith to him the third time; Simon, son of John, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved that he said to him the third time; lovest thou me? And he saith to him; Lord thou knowest all things, thou knowest that I love thee. He saith to him; Feed my sheep. Verily, verily, I say to thee; when thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst where thou wouldst; but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and lead thee whither thou wouldst not. And this he said hinting by what death he should glorify God.

OFFERT. Ps. 138. To me, O God, are thy friends exceedingly honourable: exceedingly mighty is thei power.
