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

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.

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


return hither from thence. And he said : Then I beseech thee, O Father, send him to my father's house, for I have five brethren, that he may admonish them, left they also come into this place of torment. And Abraham said to him : They have Moses and the Prophets : let them hear them. And he said : No, Father Abraham : but if one go to them from the dead, they will do pennance. But he said him: If they will not hear Mofes, nor the Prophets; neither will they believe, though one Thould rise from the dead.

And the Lord was appeased, and did not the evil, with which he threatened his people.

LESSON. Gen. xxxvii. 6, 22. N those days : Joseph said to bis brethren : Hear

my dream, which I law: I thought we were binding theaves in the field : and that my fheaf arose, as it were, and stood upright, and your heaves ftanding round about it, adored my fheaf. His brethren answered : Art thou to be our king ? Or are we to be subject to thy power? These dreams, therefore, and discourses furnished the fuel of their envy and hatred. He had also another dream, which he told his brethren, saying: I saw in a dream the fun, and the moon, and eleven stars, as it were, adoring me. And when he had told this to his fa ther, and brethren, his father rebuked him, and faid: What is the meaning of this dream, which thou haft seen? Am I, and thy mother, and thy brethren to adore thee upon earth ? His brethren therefore
