LESSON. Dan. ix. 15, 19. INA N those days: Daniel prayed to the Lord, saying :
O Lord our God, who didst bring forth thy people out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and didft make thy name famous, as it is to this day: we have finned, we have done wickedly, I Lord, against all thy commandments : but let thy wrath be turned away, I beseech thee, and thy fury from ferusalem thy city, and from thy holy mountain. For it is for our sins, and for the iniquity of our forefathers, that Jerusalem and thy people are become a scoff to all round about us. But graciously hear now, O our God, the prayer of thy servant, and his request; and for thy own sake, look upon thy sanctuary, which is become abandoned.
Bend thine ear, O my God, and hearken: open thine eyes, and see our distress, and that of the city, upon which thy name hath been called . For we rely not on our own righteousness, while we proftrate pour forth our prayers to thee, but on thy great mercy. Graciously hear us, O Lord: be appeased, O Lord : be attentive, and grant my request. Delay not, O my God, for thy own sake, for thy name hath been called on upon thy city and thy people, O Lord our God.

LESSON. 3 Kings xvii. 8, 16. IN N those days : The word of the Lord came to
Elias the Thesbite, faying : Arise, go to Sarephe ta in the territory of the Sidonians, and abide there; for I have commanded the widow woman to give thee food. He arose, and went to Sarephta. And when he came to the gate of the city, he saw the widow woman gathering sticks : and calling her, he said: Give me a little water in a vessel to drink. And as she went to fetch it, he called after her, faying : Bring me likewise, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thy hand. And the answered: As the Lord thy God liveth, I have no bread, but only a handful of meal in a vessel, and a little oil in a pot : and behold I am gathering two sticks, that I may go home, and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die. Elias said to her : Fear not, but go
and do what thou hast said: but first make for me of that little meal a small cake on the embers, and bring it to me: and afterwards thou shalt make some for thy self and thy son. For thus faith the Lord God of Israel: The vessel of meal shall not waste, nor the pot of oil be diminished, till the day, in which the Lord fhall send rain upon the earth. She went, and did as Elias had bid her; and he, and she, and her family did eat: and from that day the vessel of meal wasted not, neither was the pot of oil diminished, according to the word of the Lord spoken by Elias.

to his disciples, saying: The Scribes and Pharisees fit in the chair of Moses; and therefore, whatever they say to you, observe and do it : but do not according to their works: for they fay, and do not.

And they do all their works to be seen by men: for they wear broad plylacteries d, and long fringes. And they love the highest places at feasts, and the first chairs in the synagogues, and to be saluted in the market place, and to be called by men, Rabbi. But be not you called Rabbi, for you have only one Master, and you are all brethren. And call no man your father on earth, for you bave only one Father, who is in heaven. Neither be you called masters, for you have only one Master, who is the Christ. He that is the greatest among you, shall be your servant: and whosoever exalteth himfelf, shall be humbled : and he that humbleth himfelf, shall be exalted.
