NINETEENTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
"I Am the salvation of the people," saith the Lord. "In whatever tribulation they shall cry to Me, I will hear them; and I will be their Lord for ever."
Ps. 77:1. Attend, O My people, to My law; incline your ears to the words of My mouth.
. . .
Almighty and merciful God, graciously shield us from all that is harmful, so that both in body and soul we may be eager to do Your will. Through our Lord
. . .
EPISTLE Eph. 4:23-28
[The Apostle exhorts us to put on the new man, to be renewed in the spirit.]
Brethren: Be ye renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new man,
who according in God is created in justice and holiness of truth. Wherefore, putting away lying, speak ye the truth every man with his neighbor, for we are members of one another. Be angry, and sin not. Let not the sun go down upon your anger. Give not place to the devil. He that stole, let him now steal no more; but rather let him labor, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have something to give to him that suffereth need.
GRADUAL Ps. 14:2
