EPISTLE. I Thell. iv. 1, 7. BRethren: We request and beseech you by our
Lord Jesus, that having learned from us how you ought to walk in order to please God, you would walk so as to advance more and more. * For you know what precepts I gave you in the name of the Lord Jefus. For this is the will of God, that you be holy; that you refrain from fornication ; and that every one of you know how to keep his veffel - with holinefs and respect, and not be hurried away with lust, as the heathens are, who know not God. Let no one over-reach or deceive his brother in his dealings; for the Lord is the revenger of all these things, as we have declared to you, and affured you before. For God did not call us to be unclean, but to be holy, in Christ Jesus our Lord.

GOSPEL. Matt. xvii. 1, 9. AI
T that time : Jefus took Peter, and James,
and John his Brother, and led them up into a high mountain apart : and he was transfigured before them. And his face became bright as the fun, and his garment white as snow. And behold there appeared to them Mofes and Elias, discoursing with him. And Peter answering said to Jefus : Lord it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles, one for thee, one for Mofes, and one for Elias. While he was yet speaking, behold a bright cloud overshadowed them. And, lo, a voice came out of the cloud, saying :
This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, bear yote bim. And his disciples hearing it, fell on their faces, and were very much frighted. And Jesus coming to them, touched them, and said: Arise, and be not afraid. And lifting up their eyes, they saw no body, but only Jesus. And, as they went down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying: Tell not this vision to any, till the son of man rise again from the dead. CREDO.

LESSON. Dan. ix. 15, 19. IN those days: Daniel prayed to the Lord, saying :
O Lord our God, who didst bring forth thy people out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and didst make thy name famous, as it is to this day: we have finned, we have done wickedly, O Lord, against all thy commandments : but let thy wrath be turned away, I beseech thee, and thy fury from Jerusalem thy city, and from thy holy mountain. For it is for our fins, and for the iniquity of our forefathers, that Jerusalem and thy people are become a scoff to all round about us. ously hear now, O our God, the prayer of thy servant, and his request; and for thy own fake, look upon thy sanctuary, which is become abandoned.
Bend thine ear, O my God, and hearken: open thine eyes, and see our distress, and that of the city, upon which thy name hath been called 6. For we rely not on our own righteousness, while we proftrate pour forth our prayers to thee, but on thy great mercy. Graciously hear us, O Lord: be appeased, O Lord : be attentive, and grant my request. Delay not, O my God, for thy own fake, for thy name hath been called on upon thy city and thy people, O Lord our God.
