EPISTLE. 1 Ttm. v. 3. 10.

DEARLY beloved Son: Honour widows, that are widows indeed. But if any widow have children, or grand-children, let her learn first to govern her own house, and to make a return of duty to her own parents: for this is acceptable before God But she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, let her trust in God, and continue in supplications and prayers night and day. For she that liveth in pleasures, is dead while she is living. And this give in charge, that they be blameless. But if any man taketh not care of those that belong to him, and especially of those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel. Let a widow be chosen, not under threescore years of age, who hath been the wife of one husband; well reported of for her good works; if she have brought up her children, if she have exercised hospitality, if she have washed the feet of the saints,' if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work.

AT that time: There came to Jesus the mother of the sons of Zebedee with her sons, adoring and asking something of him. Who said to her': What wilt thou?

Can you drink the chalice that I shall drink? They say to him: We can.
