INTROIT. Suscepimus. Psalm 48
WE have waited for thy loving-kindness, O God, in the midst of thy temple: O God, according to thy Name, so is thy praise unto the world's end: thy right hand is full of righteousness. Ps. ibid. Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised: in the city of our God, even upon his holy hill. V. Glory be.

O GOD, whose never-failing providence ordereth all things both in heaven and earth: we humbly beseech thee to put away from us all hurtful things, and to give us those things which are profitable for us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

EPISTLE. Romans 8:12-17
12 BRETHREN, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

GRADUAL. Ps. 31 Be thou my strong rock and house of defence, that thou mayest save me. V. In thee, O Lord, have I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.

GOSPEL. St. Matthew 7:15-21
15 AT that time; Jesus said to his disciples: Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

OFFERTORY. Ps. 18. Thou shalt save the people that are in adversity, O Lord, and shalt bring down the high looks of the proud: for who is God, but the Lord?

O GOD, who didst ratify the manifold sacrifices of the law by the one perfect sacrifice of our redemption: mercifully accept the oblation of thy bounden servants, and sanctify them with that benediction wherewith thou didst bless the gifts of Abel thy servant; that what each hath offered to the honour of thy majesty may be profitable unto all for their salvation. Through.

COMMUNION. Ps. 34. O taste and see how gracious the Lord is: blessed is he that putteth his trust in him.

GRANT, O Lord, that the power of thy healing may mercifully cleanse us from all our perversities: and lead us henceforth in the paths of righteousness. Through.
