Adore God, all you His Angels: Sion heard, and was glad: and the daughters of Juda rejoiced. (Psalm) The Lord hath reigned, let the earth rejoice: let many islands be glad. Glory be to the Father. Adore God, all you His Angels…
O God, Who knowest us to be set in the midst of so great dangers, that by reason of the frailty of our nature, we cannot stand fast: grant to us health of mind and of body, that what we suffer for our sins, we may overcome by Thy help. Through our Lord.
Epistle – Romans 13:8-10
Brethren: Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth his neighbor, hath fulfilled the law. For: Thou shalt not commit adultery: Thou shalt not kill: Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness: Thou shalt not covet: and if there be any other commandment, it is comprised in this word, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. The love of our neighbor worketh no evil. Love therefore is the fulfilling of the law.
The Gentiles shall fear Thy name, O Lord, and all the kings of the earth Thy glory. For the Lord hath built up Sion; and He shall be seen in His glory.
Alleluia, alleluia. The Lord hath reigned, let the earth rejoice: let many islands be glad. Alleluia
Gospel – Matthew 8:23-27
At that time, when Jesus entered into the boat, His disciples followed Him: and behold a great tempest arose in the sea, so that the boat was covered with waves, but He was asleep. And His disciples came to Him, and awaked Him, saying: Lord, save us, we perish.
And Jesus saith to them: Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith? Then rising up He commanded the winds and the sea, and there came a great calm. But the men wondered, saying: What manner of man is this, for the winds and the sea obey Him?
The right hand of the Lord hath wrought strength: the right hand of the Lord hath exalted me: I shall not die, but live, and shall declare the works of the Lord.
Grant, we beseech Thee, almighty God, that the offering of the gifts of this Sacrifice, may ever cleanse us and in our frailty protect us from all evil. Through our Lord.
All wondered at these things which proceeded from the mouth of God.
May Thy gifts, O Lord, detach us from earthly pleasures: and ever renew us with heavenly nourishment. Through our Lord.
