ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, give unto us the
of faith, hope, and charity; and, that we may obtain that which thou
promise, make us to love that which thou dost command; through Jesus
our Lord. Amen.
1. The 1662 BCP (following the
medieval Saram Missal) appoints the
Gal. 5. 16
I SAY then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall
the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit,
and the Spirit 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
led of the Spirit, ye are not under the Law. Now the works of the
flesh are manifest, which are these: Adultery, fornication,
lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations,
strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness,
and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you
in time past, that they which 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.
2. The Canadian 1962 BCP
appoints the following
IF we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in
Let us not be desirous of vain-glory, provoking one another, envying
another. Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are
spiritual, restore such a one in the spirit of meekness; considering
lest thou be also tempted. Bear ye one another's burdens, and so
fulfil the law of Christ. For if a man think himself to be
when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself. But let every man prove
his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and
in another; for every man shall bear his own burden.
S. Luke 17. 11
AND it came to pass, as Jesus went to
he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. And as he
into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which
afar off. And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus,
have mercy on us. And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go
yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they
they were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw that he was
turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, and fell down on his
face at his feet, giving him thanks; and he was a Samaritan. And
Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the

And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole.
O HOW lovely are thy dwellings, / thou Lord of

courts of the Lord: / my heart and my flesh rejoice in the living God.
3 Yea, the sparrow hath found her an house, and
a nest where she may lay her young: / even thine altars, O Lord of
my King and my God.
4 Blessed are they that dwell in thy house; /
be alway praising thee.
5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee,
whose heart are thy ways;
6 Who going through the vale of misery use it
for a well;
/ yea, the early rain covereth it with blessings.
7 They will go from strength to strength, / and
the God of gods appeareth every one of them in Sion.
8 O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer: /
hearken, O God
Ant. Behold, O God, our shield, /
upon the face of thine Anointed.

of my God,

12 For the Lord God is a light and defence; the

that lead a godly life.
13 O Lord God of hosts, / blessed is the man
his trust in thee.
Glory be. Repeat Antiphon.
O COME, let us sing unto the Lord: / let us
rejoice in the strength of our salvation.
2 Let us come before his presence with

Alleluia, All. For the Lord is a
