LESSON. 3 Kings xvii. 8, 16. IN thofe days: The word of the Lord came to Elias the Thefbite, faying: Arife, go to Sarephta in the territory of the Sidonians, and abide there; for I have commanded the widow woman to give thee food. He arofe, and went to Sarephta. And when he came to the gate of the city, he faw the widow woman gathering fticks: and calling her, he faid: Give me a little water in a veffel to drink. And as she went to fetch it, he called after her, faying: Bring me likewife, I pray thee, a morfel of bread in thy hand. And the answered: As the Lord thy God liveth, I have no bread, but only a handful of meal in a veffel, and a little oil in a pot: and behold I am gathering two sticks, that I may go home, and drefs it for me and my fon, that we may eat it, and die. Elias faid to her: Fear not, but go and do what thou hast said: but first make for me of that little meal a fmall cake on the embers, and bring it to me: and afterwards thou fhalt make fome for thy felf and thy fon. For thus faith the Lord God of Ifrael: The veffel of meal fhall not wafte, nor the pot of oil be diminished, till the day, in which the Lord fhall fend rain upon the earth.

Matt. xxiii. 1, 12.

A T that time: Jefus spoke to the multitude and to his difciples, faying: The Scribes and Pharifees fit in the chair of Mofes; and therefore, whatever they fay to you, obferve and do it: but do not according to their works: for they fay, and do not. For they bind heavy and infupportable burdens, and they lay them on men's fhoulders: but they will not move them with a finger of their own. And they do all their works to be seen by men for they wear broad plylacteries 4, and long fringes. And they love the highest places at feasts, and the first chairs in the fynagogues, and to be faluted in the market-place, and to be called by men, Rabbi. But be not you called Rabbi, for you have only one Mafter, and you are all brethren. And call no man your father on earth, for you have only one Father, who is in heaven. Neither be you called mafters, for you have only one Mafter, who is the Christ. He that is the greatest among you, fhall be your fervant: and whofoever exalteth himfelf, fhall be humbled: and he that humbleth himfelf, fhall be exalted.
