O LORD, from whom all good things do come:
Grant to us
thy humble servants, that by thy holy inspiration we may think those
that be good, and by thy merciful guiding may perform the same; through
our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
S. James 1. 22
BE ye doers of the Word, and not hearers only,
your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the Word, and not a
he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass. For
he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth
manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of
and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of
the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. If any man among
you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth
own heart, this man's religion is vain. Pure religion and
before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows
their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the
S. John 16. 23
JESUS said unto his disciples, Verily, verily,
unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give
you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall
receive, that your joy may be full. These things have I spoken
you in proverbs: the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you
proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father. At that day
ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the
for you; for the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me,
have believed that I came out from God. I came forth from the
and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the
His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and
no proverb. Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and
not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from
God. Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe? Behold, the
hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to
his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the
Father is with me. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me
ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation; but
be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
O GIVE thanks unto the Lord, for he is
gracious, / and
his mercy endureth for ever.
2 Let them give thanks whom the Lord hath
and delivered from adversity;
3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the
from the west, / from the north and from the south.
4 They that wandered in the wilderness, even in
place, / found no way to a city where men dwelt.
5 Hungry and thirsty, / their soul fainted in
6 So they cried unto the Lord in their trouble,
he delivered them from their distress.
7 He led them forth by the right way, / that
go to the city where men dwelt.
Ant. O that men would therefore
Lord for his goodness, / and declare the wonders that he doeth for the
children of men!
9 For he satisfieth the empty soul. / and
hungry soul with goodness.
Glory be. Repeat Antiphon.
O come hither, and hearken, all ye that
/ and I will tell you what he hath done for my soul.
16 I called unto him with my mouth, / and gave
with my tongue.
17 If I regarded wickedness in mine heart, /
would not have heard me.
18 But verily God hath heard me, / and
voice of my prayer.
19 Praised be God, who hath not cast out my
nor turned his mercy from me.
