INTROIT. Cum clamarem. Ps. 55.
WHEN I called upon the Lord, he heard my voice, even from the battle that was against me: yea, even God that endureth for ever shall hear me, and bring them down: O cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall nourish thee. Ps. ibid. Hear my prayer, O Lord, and hide not thyself from my petition: take heed unto me, and hear me. V. Glory be.

LET thy merciful ears, O Lord, be open to the prayers of thy humble servants: and that they may obtain their petitions, make them to ask such things as shall please thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

EPISTLE. 1 Corinthians 12:1-11
1 BRETHREN: concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.
2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.
3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.
4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

GRADUAL. Ps. 7. Keep me, O Lord, as the apple of an eye: hide me under the shadow of thy wings. V. Let my sentence come forth from thy presence: and let thine eyes look upon the thing that is equal.
Alleluia, alleluia. V. Ps. 65. Thou, O God, art praised in Sion: and unto thee shall the vow be performed in Jerusalem. Alleluia.

GOSPEL. St. Luke 19:41-47
41 AT that time: When Jesus was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,
42 Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.
43 For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,
44 And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.
45 And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought;
46 Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.
47 And he taught daily in the temple.

OFFERTORY. Ps. 25. Unto thee, O Lord, will I lift up my soul: my God, I have put my trust in thee, O let me not be confounded: neither let mine enemies triumph over me: for all they that hop in thee shall not be ashamed.

O LORD, who hast instituted this sacrifice to be a remembrance of the effectual continuance of the work of our redemption: grant, we pray thee, that we may ever be enabled by thee to draw near in worthiness unto these thy mysteries. [Through.]

COMMUNION. Ps. 51. Thou shalt be pleased with the sacrifice of righteousness, with the burnt offerings and oblations upon thine altar, O Lord.

GRANT, O Lord, we pray thee: that this holy Communion, which we have received, may cleanse us from all our sins, and bestow upon us unity and concord. [Through.]
