EPISTLE. 1 Saint Peter 2:11-17
11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;
12 Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.
13 Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;
14 Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.
15 For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:
16 As free, and not using your liberty for a cloak of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.
17 Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.

Alleluia, alleluia. V. Psalm 111 The Lord hath sent redemption unto his people. Alleluia. V. St. Luke 24 Ought not Christ to have suffered these things: and to enter into his glory? Alleluia.

GOSPEL. Saint John 16:16-22
16 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.
17 Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father?
18 They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith.
19 Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye inquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?
20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.
21 A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.
22 And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.

OFFERTORY. Ps. 146 Praise the Lord, O my soul: while I live will I praise the Lord: yea, as long as I have any being, I will sing praises unto my God, alleluia.

O LORD, we pray thee, that from these mysteries we may obtain such succour of thy grace, that refraining ourselves from the desire of all things earthly, we may learn to love all such things as are heavenly. [Through.]

COMMUNION. St. John 16 A little while, and ye shall not see me, alleluia: and again a little while, and you shall see me, because I go to the Father, alleluia, alleluia.

O LORD our God, who hast made us partakers of this holy Sacrament: grant, we beseech thee; that we may be thereby inwardly satisfied with heavenly food, and outwardly defended against all adversities. Through.
