Almighty and merciful God, of whose only gift
that thy faithful people do unto thee true and laudable service: Grant,
we beseech thee, that we may so faithfully serve thee in this life,
we fail not finally to attain thy heavenly promises; through the merits
of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should

following Epistle (which in the Sarum Missal is appointed for Trinity 14):
I SAY then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall
the desire of the flesh. For the desire of the flesh is against
Spirit, and the Spirit is against the flesh; and these are contrary the
one to the other; so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
But if ye be led by the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the
works of the flesh are manifest, which are these: adultery,
uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance,
wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness,
and such like: of the which I tell you beforehand, as I have also told
you in time past, that they who do such things shall not inherit the
of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there
no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh, with
the affections and lusts.
THE GOSPEL. S. Luke 10. 23
Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see.
For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those
things which ye see, and have not seen them ; and to hear those things
which ye hear, and have not heard them. And behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and
saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? He said
unto him, What is written in the Law? how readest thou? And he
said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all
thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy
as thyself. And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this
do, and thou shalt live. But he, willing to justify himself, said
unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour? And Jesus answering said, A
certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among
which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed,
him half dead. And by chance there came down a certain priest
way; and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And
a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed
by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed,
where he was; and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, and went
him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on
own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And
the morrow when he departed, he took out two shillings, and gave them
the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou
more, when I come again, I will repay thee. Which now of these
thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the

Go, and do thou likewise.
[The Canadian 1962 BCP begins at Luke 10:25]
Ant. LORD, thou hast been our
from one generation to another.
2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or
earth and the world were made, / thou art God from everlasting, and
3 Thou turnest man back to the dust, / and thou
'Return, ye children of men.'
4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as
when it is past, / and as a watch in the night.
5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood, and
even as a sleep, / in the morning they are like grass that groweth up.
6 In the morning it is green, and groweth up, /
the evening it is cut down, dried up, and withered.
7 For we consume away in thy displeasure, / and
at thy wrathful indignation.
8 Thou hast set our misdeeds before thee, / and
sins in the light of thy countenance.
9 For when thou art angry all our days are
gone: / we
bring our years to an end, as it were a tale that is told.
10 The days of our age are threescore years and
/ or, if men be so strong, they may come to fourscore years;
11 Yet is their pride but labour and sorrow: /
passeth it away, and we are gone.
12 But who regardeth the power of thy wrath, /
aright thine indignation?
13 So teach us to number our days, / that we
our hearts unto wisdom.
Glory be. Repeat Antiphon.
14 Turn thee again, O Lord, at the last, / and
unto thy servants.
15 O satisfy us with thy mercy, and that soon:
/ so shall
we rejoice and be glad all the days of our life.
16 Comfort us again according to the time that
afflicted us, / and for the years wherein we have suffered adversity.
17 Shew thy servants thy work, / and their
Alleluia, All. And let the
Majesty of the Lord our God be upon us: / prosper thou the work of our
hands upon us, O prosper thou our handy-work. All.
