LESSON. Efther xiii. 8, 17. I N those days : Mardocheus prayed to the Lord,

saying: 0 Lord the Almighty King, for all things are under thy power; and there is none that can withstand thy will, if thou determine to save Ifrael. Thou didst make heaven and earth, and whatsoever is under the cope of the heavens. Thou art the Lord of all, neither can any resist thy Majesty. And now Lord our Sovereign, the God of Abraham, take pity on thy people, for our enemies design our destruction, and the ruin of thy inheritance. Despise not thy lot which thou didft purchase of Egypt.

GOSPEL. Matt. xx. 17, 28. A! IT that time : Jesus going up to Jerusalem,

took the twelve disciples aside, and said to them: Behold we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and to the scribes, and they will condemn him to death, and deliver him up to the Gentiles to be insulted, scourged, and crucified; and the third day he shall

rise again. Then came to him the mother of the
fons of Zebedee, with her sons, worshipping him,
desiring, something of him: Who said to her :
What dost thou desire ? She saith to him : Ap-
point that these my two sons may fit, one on thy
right hand, and the other on thy left, in thy king-
dom. And Jesus answering, said : Ye know not

alk. Can you drink the cup which I am to drink? They say to him, we can: He saith to them : My cup indeed you shall drink; but to fit on my right hand, or on my left, is not mine to give you ; but it is for those, for whom it is prepared by my Father. And the other ten disciples hearing this, were moved with indignation against the two brothers. But Jefus calling them to him, said : You know that the princes of the Gentiles lord it over them, and that the great oncs exercise over them their power. It shall not be so among you: but whosoever would be a great one among you, let him wait on you: and whosoever would be a chief among you, Ihall be your servant: even as the Son of Man came not to be served, but to ferve, and to give his life for the redemption of many.

For he shall be as a tamerisk in the desert, and not fee when good cometh : but shall dwell in dryness in the desert, in a salt-land, and not inhabitable. Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose only confidence is in God. And he thall be

GOSPEL. Luke xvi. 19, 31, AT

that time : Jefus said to the Pharisees : There

was a certain rich man, who was clothed in purple and fine linen, and feasted fumptuoufly every day. And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, who lay at bis gate full of fores, defiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table; but no one would give them to him; but even the dogs came and licked his fores. And it came to pafs that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom. And the rich man also died, and was buried in hell. And lifting up his eyes, when he was in tornients, he saw Abrabam afar off, and Lazarus in his bofom. And crying out, he said : Father Abraham, take pity on me, and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water, that he may cool my tongue, for I suffer extreme torments in this flame. And Abraham faid to him : Son, remember in thy life-time thou didft receive good things, and Lazarus evil : but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. Moreover, there is a great chaos between you and us: so that they, who would pass hence to you, cannot, nor VOL. II.
