Introit Psalm: (sung)
Everything that thou hast brought upon us, O Lord God, thou hast done in righteousness and judgement:
for we have trespassed against thee, and have not obeyed thy commandments; but give glory and honour to thy Name and deal with us according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.
Great is the Lord and highly to be praised
in the city of our God, even upon his holy hill.
THE COLLECT. p. 250
O ALMIGHTY and most merciful God, of thy bountiful goodness keep us, we beseech thee, from all things that may hurt us; that we, being ready both in body and soul, may cheerfully accomplish those things that thou wouldest have done; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
THE EPISTLE. Ephesians 5. 15. p. 251
SEE then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; speaking to yourselves in psalms, and hymns, and spiritual songs; singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
Gradual Psalm: 145.14-17 p. 517
14 THE LORD is faithful in all his words, / and gracious in all his deeds.
15 The LORD upholdeth all such as fall, / and lifteth up all those that are down.
16 The eyes of all wait upon thee, / and thou givest them their meat in due season.
17 Thou openest thy hand, / and fillest all things living with plenteousness.
THE GOSPEL. St Matthew 22. 1. p. 251
JESUS said, The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, who made a marriage for his son; and sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding; and they would not come. Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready; come unto the marriage. But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise: and the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them. But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth; and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burnt up their city. Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they who were bidden were not worthy. Go ye therefore into the high-ways, and as many as ye shall find bid to the marriage. So those servants went out into the high-ways, and gathered together all, as many as they found, both bad and good; and the wedding was furnished with guests. And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding-garment. And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither, not having a wedding-garment? And he was speechless. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen.
