Epistle • Wisdom 7:7-14

I wished and understanding was given me; and I called, and the spirit of Wisdom came upon me; and I preferred her before kingdoms and thrones, and esteemed riches nothing in comparison of her. Neither did I compare unto her any precious stone, for all gold in comparison of her is as a little sand and silver in respect to her shall be counted as clay. I loved her above health and beauty, and chose to have her instead of light, for her light cannot be put out. Now all good things came to me together with her, and innumerable riches through her hands. and I rejoiced in them all; for this wisdom went before me, and I knew not that she was the mother of them all: which I have learned without guile. and communicate without envy, and her treasure to men, which they that use become the friends of God, being commended for the gifts of discipline.

Alleluia. Lamentations 1: 13

Alleluia, alleluia. From above He hath sent a fire into my bones, and hath instructed me. Alleluia (Ps 38: 4) My heart grew hot within me, and in my meditation a fire shall break forth. Alleluia.


 

Gospel • Luke 12: 35-40

Continuation of the Holy Gospel According to St. Luke. 
At that time, Jesus said to His disciples, Let your loins be girt, and lamps burning in your hands. And you yourselves like to men who wait for their lord, when he shall return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh they may open to him immediately. Blessed are those servants, whom the Lord when he cometh, shall find watching. Amen I say to you, that he will gird himself, and make them sit down to meat, and passing will minister unto them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. But this know ye, that if the householder did know at what hour the thief would come, he would surely watch, and would not suffer his house to be broken open. Be you then also ready: for at what hour you think not, the Son of man will come.

Offertory • Ps. 118: 32

I have run the way of Thy commandments, when Thou didnst enlarge my heart. (P. T. Alleluia)
