thou didst but know, and even in this thy day, the things that are for thy peace! but now they are hidden from thy eyes. For the days will come upon thee, when thy enemies shall cast up a trench round about thee, and encompass thee, and straiten thee on every side; and they shall beat thee down to the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon

another ; because thou hast not known the time of thy visitation. And going into the temple, he began to cast out those that bought and sold in it; saying to them; it is written; My house is a house of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves. And he taught daily in the temple. CREDO.

EPISTLE. 1 Cor. xii. 2. 11.
RETHREN: You know, when you were heathens,


Therefore I declare to you, that no man speaking by the spirit of God, saith Anathema to Jesus. And no one can say; Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Spirit. Now there are diversities of graces, but the same spirit; and diversities of ministries, but the same Lord : and diversities of functions; but it is the same God that worketh all in all. And the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every one for the general profit. To one indeed is given



by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge according to the same Spirit; to another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gift of healing by the same Spirit; to another the working of miracles ; to another prophecy ; to another the discerning of spirits; to another diversity of tongues; to another the interpreting of speeches. Now one and the same Spirit performeth all these things, distributing to every one, as he pleaseth.

The Pharisee standing, prayed thus within himself: O God, I give thee thanks, that I am not like other men, who are extortioners, unjust, adulterers; or even like this Publican. I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all I have. And the Publican standing afar off, would not so much

EPISTLE. 1 Cor. xv. 1. 10.
RETHREN: I make known to you again the Gos-

pel I have already published amongst you, which you also received, in which you have persevered, and by which you are saved, if you remember after what manner I preached to you; otherwise you have believed in vain. For I first of all delivered to you, what I myself had received; that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day, according to the Scriptures; and that he was seen by Cephas, and afier that by the eleven. Then he was seen by more than five hundred of the brethren at once; many of whom still remain, but some of them sleep. After that he was seen by James; then by all the Apostles; and last of all by me myself, as by one born out of due time. For I am the least of the Apostles, and am not worthy to be called an Apostle, because I persecuted the Church of God. But by the grace of God, I am what I am, and his grace

hath not been fruitless in me. GRAD. Ps. xxvii.
