Almighty and everlasting God, who dost govern all things in heaven and earth: Mercifully hear the supplications of thy people, and grant us thy peace all the days of our life; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
THE EPISTLE.  Romans 12. 6-16 
Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; or ministry, let us wait on our ministering; or he that teacheth, on teaching; or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.  Let love be without dissimulation.  Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.  Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another: not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.  Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.  Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.  Be of the same mind one towards another.  Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate.
THE GOSPEL.  S. John 2. 1-11 
AND the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there.  And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.  And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.  Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.  His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.  And there were set there six water-pots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three measures apiece.  Jesus saith unto them, Fill the water-pots with water.  And they filled them up to the brim.  And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast.  And they bare it.  When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was, (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, and saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.  This beginning of signs did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.



INTROITPs 66:1-3  
O BE joyful in God, all ye lands; / sing praises unto the honour of his Name; make his praise to be glorious.
2 Say unto God, 'O how wonderful are thy works! / because of the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies feign obedience unto thee.
Ant.  All the world shall worship thee, / sing of thee, and praise thy Name.'
Glory be.  Repeat Antiphon.


GRADUAL. Ps 107:8-9 
O THAT men would therefore praise the Lord for his goodness, / and declare the wonders that he doeth for the children of men!
Alleluia, All.   For he satisfieth the empty soul, / and filleth the hungry soul with goodness. All.
