The Introit Psalm 119  XI. Defecit anima mea.

MY soul hath longed for thy salvation, * and I have a good hope because of thy word.
    82 Mine eyes long sore for thy word; * saying, O when wilt thou comfort me?
    83 For I am become like a bottle in the smoke; * yet do I not forget thy statutes.
    84 How many are the days of thy servant? * when wilt thou be avenged of them that persecute me?
    85 The proud have digged pits for me, * which are not after thy law.
    86 All thy commandments are true: * they persecute me falsely; O be thou my help.
    87 They had almost made an end of me upon earth; * but I forsook not thy commandments.
    88 O quicken me after thy loving-kindness; * and so shall I keep the testimonies of thy mouth.

The Collect.

OGOD, who declarest thy almighty power chiefly* in showing mercy and pity; Mercifully grant unto us such a measure of thy grace, that we, running the way of thy commandments, may obtain thy gracious promises, and be made partakers of thy heavenly treasure; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Epistle. 1 Cor. xv. 1.

BRETHREN, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; by which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: and that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: after that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me. Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed.

The Gradual   Ps 51:15-16    

O LORD, open thou my lips, / and my mouth shall show thy praise.
16 For thou desirest no sacrifice, else would I give it; / but thou delightest not in burnt offerings.

The Alleluia Ps 51:17

Alleluia! Alleluia! he sacrifice of God is a troubled spirit: / a broken and contrite heart, O God, shalt thou not despise.  Alleluia!  

The Gospel. 
St. Luke xviii. 9.

JESUS spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be. merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

2nd Evensong
The Psalms Appointed
54 & 55

The Readings
Gen 24 & Matt 19:1-9

 The Antiphon for the Magnificat
Standing afar off, the publican would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven: * but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful unto me a sinner.

Wednesday after the Eleventh Sunday after Trinity

Holy Communion

The Epistle  1 Cor. vi. 15-20

Brethren, know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

The Gospel  Luke xviii. 1-8

At that time, Jesus spake a parable unto his disciples to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily.
