GOSPEL. John vi. !, 15. At that time : Jefus crossed over the fea of Gali

lee, which is that of Tiberias: and a great multitude followed him, because they saw the miracles' he wrought on those that were diseased. Jesus therefore went up a mountain : and fat there with his disciples. And the Passover, a feast of the Jews, was near. When Jesus therefore had lifted up hiseyes, and law that a very great multitude was coming to him, he said to Philip: Where fhall we buy bread for these people to eat? And this he said to try him, for he knew what he was going to do. Philip answered him: Two hundred penny-worth of bread is not enough for them, for every one to have only a little piece. One of his disciples, Ana drew the brother of Simon Peter, faith to him: Here is a boy that hath five barley loaves, and two fishes : but what are these among fo mạny? Then Jesus said : Make the men sit down:

for there was a great deal of grass in that place. Then the men sat down, being in number about five thousand. Then Jesus took the loaves; and having given thanks, he diftributed them to those that were rat down: as likewise of the fishes, as much as they had a mind for. And when they had eat enough, he said to his disciples : Gather up the fragments, which are left, that they may not be loft. They gathered them up therefore, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which were left by those who had eaten. Then those

men, having seen the miracle wrought by Jesus, said : This is certainly the prophet, who is to come into the world. And when Jesus perceived that they were about to come and take him by force to make him King, he withdrew again alone into the mountain. CREDO.

LESSON. 3 Kings iii. 16, 28. IN those days: Two woman that were barlots,

came to king Solomon, and stood before him, and one of them faid: I befeech thee, my Lord, hear me: 1 and this woman dwelt in the fame house, and I was delivered of a child in the chamber with her. And the third day after I was delivered, this woman was delivered also; and we were together, and there was nobody in the house besides us two. And in the night this woman's child died, for the overlaid it in her sleep; and the arose at midnight, and taking my child from thy hand-maid's side while 1.slept, the laid it in her own bofom, and her dead child the faid in my bofom : and when I arose in the morning to give my.child fuck, behold it was dead: but having viewed it more attentively by

day-light, I found it was not the child of which I had been delivered. And the other woman anfwered : 'Tis not as thou sayeft: but it is thy child which is dead, and mine that liveth. On the contrary she replied: Thou lieft; for my child is alive, and thine is dead. In this manner they wrangled before the king. Then the king said: The one faith : 'Tis my child which is alive, and thine is dead : and the other repliethr: No; but 'tis thy child is dead, and mine is alive. And the king faid: Bring me a sword. And a sword being brought before the king, he said : Divide the child that is alive in the middle, and give half to one and half to the other.' Then the woman, that was the mother of the living child, faid to the king, (for her bowels were moved for her child) I beseech thee, my Lord, give her the child alive, and kill it not. But, on the contrary, the other faid : Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it. Then the king answered and faid : Give this woman the child alive, and let it not be killed, for she is the mother of it. And all Israel heard of the judgment the king had given, and they feared the king : for they faw the wisdom of God was with him to do justice.

GOSPEL. John ii. 13, 25;
T that time : The Passover of the Jews was

near, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. And he found in the temple men that fold oxen, and Theep, and doves, and bankers fitting. And, having made, as it were, a whip of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, as well as the oxen and sheep, and he threw down the bankers money, and overturned their tables : and said to

them that sold doves: Take these things away, and make not my Father's house a house of trade. And bis disciples remembered that it is written: A zeal for thy house bath eaten me up.

Then the Jews answered and said to him: What sign fhewest thou, that thou doest these things ?: Jesus answered and faid to them: Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. Then the Jews faid: This temple was fix-and-forty years building, and wilt thou raise it up in three days ? But he spoke of the temple of his body.' And when he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered he had said this, and they believed the fcripture, and what Jesus had said. And being in Jerusalem at the Pasover on the festival-day, many believed in his name, seeing the miracles he did. But Jefus trusted not himself to them, because he knew all men, and needed not any should inform him concerning man: for he knew what was in man.
