GOSPEL. Matt. is. J. 8.

AT that time: Jesus getting into a boat, passed over the water, and came into his own city. And behold, they brought to him a man sick of the Palsy, lying on a bed. And Jesus seeing their faith, said to the man sick of the palsy: Son, be of good heart, thy sins are forgiven thee. And behold some of the Scribes said within themselves: This man speaketh blasphemy. And Jesus seeing their thoughts, said: Why do you think evil in your hearts? Which is easier to say: Thy sins are forgiven thee: or to say, Arise, and walk? But that you may know that the Son of Man hath power on earth to forgive sins, then saith he to the man sick of the palsy: Arise, take up thy bed, and go home. And he arose, and went home. And the multitude seeing this were afraid: and they glorified God, who had given such power to men. Credo.

EPISTLE. Eph. iv. 23 .'28.

BRETHREN : Be renewed in the spirit of your mind: and put on the new man, who, according to God, was created in righteousness, and the holiness of truth. Wherefore laying aside lying, speak ye truth every man to his neighbour; for we are members one of another. Be angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath. Give not place to the Devil. Let him that stole, now steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands at something that is good, that he may have wherewith to give him that is in need.

GOSPEL. Matt. xxii. 1. 14.

AT that time: Jesus spake to the chief priests and Pharisees in parables, saying: The kingdom of heaven is like to a king, who made a marriage-feast for his son. And he sent his servants to call them that were invited to the marriage, and they would not come. Again he sent other servants, saying: Say to them that were invited: Behold I have prepared my dinner; my beeves and fatlings are killed, and all things are ready; come to the marriage. But they regarded not: and they went away, one to his farm, and another to his traffic. And the rest laid hands on his servants, and having spightfully treated them, they murdered them. But when the King heard of it, he was angry; and sending his army, he destroyed those murderers, and burnt their city. Then he saith to his servants. The wedding-dinner indeed is ready: but they who were invited, were not worthy. Go ye therefore into the high-ways, and as many as you shall find, invite to the wedding-dinner. And his servants going out into the high-ways, gathered together all that they found, both bad and good: and the marriage feast was supplied with guests. Then the King went in to see the guests: and he saw there a man, who had not on a wedding-garment. And he saith to him: Friend, how eamest thou in hither, not having a wedding-garment. But the man was silent. Then the King said to the ser-. vants: Bind him \iand and foot, and cast him into outer darkness: there shall be weeping,, and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen. Credo.
