Save me, O God, by Thy Name, and deliver me in Thy strength. ℣. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.

LET Thy merciful ears, O Lord, be open to the prayers of Thy suppliant people: and that Thou mayest grant their desire to those that seek; make them ask such things as please Thee.

EPISTLE From the First Letter of Blessed Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians, 10. 6-13.
BRETHREN, let us not covet evil things, as they also coveted. Neither become ye idolaters, as some of them: as it is written: The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed fornication, and there fell in one day three and twenty thousand. Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them tempted, and perished by the serpents. Neither do you murmur, as some of them murmured, and were destroyed by the destroyer. Now all these things happened to them in figure, and they are written for our correction, upon whom the ends of the world are come. Wherefore he that thinketh himself to stand, let him take heed lest he fall. Let no temptation take hold on you, but such as is human: and God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that which you are able; but will make also with temptation issue, that you may be able to bear it.
GRADUAL (Ps. 8. 2)
O LORD, our Lord, how admirable is Thy Name in the whole earth! For Thy magnificence is elevated above the heavens. Alleluia, alleluia. (Ps. 58. 2.) Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God: and defend me from them that rise up against me. Alleluia.
GOSPEL Continuation of the holy Gospel according to St. Luke, 19. 41-47.
AT THAT TIME, when Jesus drew near to Jerusalem, seeing the city, He wept over it saying: If thou also hadst known, and that in this thy day, the things that are to thy peace: but now they are hidden from thine eyes. For the days shall come upon thee, and thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and straiten thee on every side; and beat thee flat to the ground, and thy children who are in thee; and they shall not leave in thee a stone upon a stone, because thou hast not known the time of thy visitation. And entering into the temple, He began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought, saying to them: It is written, My house is the house of prayer, but you have made it a den of thieves. And He was teaching daily in the temple.
OFFERTORY (Ps. 18. 9, 10, 11, 12)
THE justices of the Lord are right, rejoicing hearts, and His judgments sweeter than honey and the honeycomb: for Thy servant keepeth them.

PREFACE OF THE MOST HOLY TRINITY
IT is truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, that we should at all times and in all places give thanks to Thee, holy Lord, Father almighty, eternal God: Who, together with Thine only-begotten Son and the Holy Ghost, art one God, one Lord: not in the Oneness of a single Person, but in the Trinity of one Substance. For what by Thy revelation we believe of Thy glory, the same do we believe of Thy Son, the same of the Holy Ghost, without difference or separation; so that in confessing the true and eternal Godhead, in It we should adore distinction in Persons, unity in Essence, and equality in Majesty: in praise of which Angels and Archangels, Cherubim also and Seraphim, day by day exclaim, without end and with one voice, saying: — Sanctus.
COMMUNION (John, 6. 57)
