Holy Communion

The Introit Psalm 14. Dixit insipiens.

THE fool hath said in his heart, * There is no God.
2 They are corrupt, and become abominable in their doings; * there is none that doeth good, no not one.
    3 The L
ORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, * to see if there were any that would understand, and seek after God.
    4 But they are all gone out of the way, they are altogether become abominable; * there is none that doeth good, no not one.
    5 Have they no knowledge, that they are all such workers of mischief, * eating up my people as it were bread, and call not upon the L
    6 There were they brought in great fear, even where no fear was; * for God is in the generation of the righteous.
    7 As for you, ye have made a mock at the counsel of the poor; * because he putteth his trust in the L
    8 Who shall give salvation unto Israel out of Sion? * When the L
ORD turneth the captivity of his people, then shall Jacob rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.

The Collect.

ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who dost govern all things in heaven and earth; Mercifully hear the supplications of thy people, and grant us thy peace all the days of our life; through Jesus Christ our Lord.Amen.

The Epistle. Rom. xii. 6.

HAVING then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness, Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality. Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate.

The Gradual   Ps 107:8

O THAT men would therefore praise the Lord for his goodness, * and declare the wonders that he doeth for the children of men!

The Alleluia Ps 107:9

Alleluia! Alleluia! For he satisfieth the empty soul, * and filleth the hungry soul with goodness. Alleluia!

The Gospel. St. Mark i. 1.

THE beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; as it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. And there went out unto him all the land of Jud├Ža, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins. And John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey; and preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose. I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost. And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan. And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit, like a dove, descending upon him: and there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

2nd Evensong
The Psalms Appointed
45 & 46

The Readings
Neh. 2:1-11 & Acts 5:17-32

The Antiphon for the Magnificat
The springs of waters were hallowed when Christ appeared in majesty before the world: * draw ye water from the wells of salvation; for now is every creature sanctified by Christ our God.

Wednesday after the Second Sunday in Epiphany

Holy Communion

The Epistle Rom. x. 1-4

Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

The Gospel Matt. iv. 12-17

At that time, when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee; And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles; The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up. From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
