Almighty God, who shewest to them that be in
light of thy truth, to the intent that they may return into the way of
righteousness: Grant unto all them that are admitted into the
of Christ's religion, that they may forsake those things that are
to their profession, and follow all such things as are agreeable to the
same; through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
1 S. Peter 2.11
DEARLY beloved, I beseech you as strangers and
abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; having your
honest among the Gentiles; that, whereas they speak against you as
they may, by your good works which they shall behold, glorify God in
day of visitation. Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man
the Lord's sake; whether it be to the king, as supreme; or unto
as unto them that are sent by him, for the punishment of evildoers, and

servants of God. Honour all men. Love the
Fear God. Honour the king.

JESUS said to his disciples, A little while,
and ye shall
not see me; and again a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go
to the Father. Then said some of his disciples among themselves,
What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not

the Father? They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A
while? we cannot tell what he saith. Now Jesus knew that they
desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves
of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me; and again a
while and ye shall see me? Verily, verily, I say unto you, that
shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be
but your sorrow shall be turned into joy. A woman, when she is in
travail, hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is
of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man
born into the world. And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will
see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh

the honour of his Name, make his praise to be glorious.

praise thy Name.
4 O come hither, and behold the works of God: /
he is in his doing toward the children of men.
5 He turned the sea into dry land, / so that
through the water on foot; there did we rejoice thereof.
Ant. He ruleth with his power for
his eyes keep watch upon the nations: / let not such as be rebellious
Glory be. Repeat Antiphon.
O PRAISE our God, ye people, / and make the
his praise to be heard;

feet to slip.
