Lo, I John looked, and behold, a door was opened in heaven; and lo, a throne was set therein; * and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four living creatures, full of eyes, before and behind; // and they ascribed glory and honor and blessing to him that sitteth on the throne, * who liveth for ever and ever.

Holy Communion

The Introit Psalm 137. Super flumina.

BY the waters of Babylon we sat down and wept, * when we remembered thee, O Sion.
    2 As for our harps, we hanged them up * upon the trees that are therein.
    3 For they that led us away captive, required of us then a song, and melody in our heaviness: * Sing us one of the songs of Sion.
    4 How shall we sing the L
ORD’S song * in a strange land?
    5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, * let my right hand forget her cunning.
    6 If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; * yea, if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.
    7 Remember the children of Edom, O LORD, in the day of Jerusalem; * how they said, Down with it, down with it, even to the ground.
    8 O daughter of Babylon, wasted with misery; * yea, happy shall he be that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.
    9 Blessed shall he be that taketh thy children, * and throweth them against the stones.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who didst inspire thy servant Saint Luke the Physician, to set forth in the Gospel the love and healing power of thy Son; Manifest in thy Church the like power and love, to the healing of our bodies and our souls; through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Epistle. 2 Tim. iv. 5.

WATCH thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. Do thy diligence to come shortly unto me: for Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia. Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with thee: for he is profitable to me for the ministry. And Tychicus have I sent to Ephesus. The cloke that I left at Troas with Carpus, when thou comest, bring with thee, and the books, but especially the parchments. Alexander the copper-smith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works: of whom be thou ware also; for he hath greatly withstood our words.

The Gradual Ps 37:31

    31 The mouth of the righteous is exercised in wisdom, * and his tongue will be talking of judgment.

The Alleluia Ps 37:32

Alleluia! Alleluia! The law of his God is in his heart, * and his goings shall not slide. Alleluia!

The Gospel. St. Luke x. 1.
THE Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves. Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way. And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house. And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it; if not, it shall turn to you again. And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give; for the labourer is worthy of his hire.

2nd Evensong
The Psalms Appointed

The Readings
Ecclus. 38:1–14 & Col. 4:2

The Antiphon for the Magnificat

For the wisdom of the ancients the holy Evangelists searched with diligent enquiry; * and by the Prophets' sayings did they establish the truth of their narration.
