Eptstle. Heb. x. 32, 38.
BRETHREN: call to mind the former days, wherein, being illuminated, you endured a great fight of afflictions. And on the one hand indeed, by reproaches and tribulations were made a gazmg-stock; and on the other, become companions of them that were used in such sort. For you both had compassion on them that were in bands, and took with joy the being stripped of your own goods, knowing that you have a better and a lasting substance. Do not therefore lose your confidence, which hath a great reward. For patience is necessary for you: that, doing the will of God, you may receive the promise. For yet a little and a very little while, and he that is to come, will come, and will not delay. But my just man liveth by faith.

GOSPEL. Matt. xxiv. 3, 23.
AT that time: as Jesus was sitting on mount Olivet, the disciples came to him privately, saying: tell us when these things shall be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the consummation of the world? and Jesus answering, said to, them: take heed that no man seduce you: for many will come in my name saying: I am Christ: and they will seduce many. And you shall hear of wars, and rumours of wars. See that ye be not troubled. For these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be pestilences, and famines, and earthquakes in places: now all these are the beginnings of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall put you to death • and you shall be hated by all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be scandalized: and shall betray one another: and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and seduce many. And because iniquity hath abounded, the charity of many shall grow cold. But he that shall persevere to the end shall be saved.
