Epistle. 1 Cor. iv. g, M.
BRETHREN: We are made a spectacle to the world, and to Angels, and to men. We are fools for Christ's sake, but you are wise in Christ; we are weak, but you are strong; you are honourable. but we without honour. Even unto this hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no fixed abode, and we labour working with our own hands; we are reviled, and we bless; we are persecuted, and we suffer it. We are blasphemed, and we intreat; we are made as the refuse of this world, the off-scouring of all even until now. I write not these things to confound you; but I admonish you as my dearest children; in Christ Jesus our Lord.

AT that time: Jesus said to his disciples: Fear not, little flock, for it hath pleased your Father to give you a kingdom. Sell what you possess and give alms.

Lesson. Eccles. xlv. 1, 6.
THIS saint was beloved of God and men: like Moses his memory is in benediction. God made him like the saints in glory, and magnified him in the fear of his enemies: and with his words he made prodigies to cease. He glorified him in the sight of kings, and gave him commandments in the sight of his people. and shewed him his glory. He sanctified him in his faith and meekness, and chose him out of all flesh. For he heard him and his voice; and brought him in a cloud. And he gave him his precepts face to face, and a law of life and instruction.

AT that time: Peter said to Jesus: Behold we have left all things, and have followed thee: what therefore, shall we have ? And Jesus said to them: Amen, I say to you, that you who have followed me, in the regeneration, when the Son of Man shall sit on the seat of his majesty, you also shall sit on twelve seats, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And every one that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake: shall receive an hundredfold, and shall possess life everlasting.
