Introit Psalm (sung)
The Lord is my light, and my salvation, whom then shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life, of whom shall I be afraid?
When mine enemies pressed sore against me, they stumbled and fell.
Though an host of men were laid against me:
yet shall not my heart be afraid.

THE COLLECT. p. 223
O GOD, the protector of all that trust in thee, without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy: Increase and multiply upon us thy mercy; that, thou being our ruler and guide, we may so pass through things temporal, that we finally lose not the things eternal. Grant this, O heavenly Father, for Jesus Christ’s sake our Lord. Amen.
THE EPISTLE. Romans 8. 18.
I RECKON that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed unto us; for the earnest expectation of the whole creation is waiting for the revelation of the sons of God. For the creation was not made subject to vanity of its own will, but in accordance with the will of him who made it subject in hope; for the creation itself shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only so, but we ourselves, who have the first-fruits of the Spirit, groan within ourselves, waiting for our full adoption as sons, even the redemption of our body.
Gradual Psalm: 9. 9-12 p. 339
9 THE LORD also will be a defence for the oppressed, / even a refuge in the time of trouble.
10 And they that know thy Name will put their trust in thee; / for thou, LORD, hast never failed them that seek thee.
11 O PRAISE the LORD who dwelleth in Sion; / show the people of his doings.
12 For he that avengeth blood remembereth them, / and forgetteth not the complaint of the poor.
THE GOSPEL. St Luke 6. 36.
JESUS said unto his disciples, Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal, it shall be measured to you again. And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch? The disciple is not above his master; but every one that is perfect shall be as his master. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother’s eye.
