face a. Put us not to confusion : but deal with us according to thy goodness, and according to the multitude of thy mercy. And deliver us by thy wonders, and make thy name glorious, O Lord. Let all those be confounded, who do hurt to thy fervants ; let them be confounded by thy Almighty power, and let their strength be broken. And let them know, that thou alone art the Lord God, and the glorious one over the whole earth, O Lord our God.

GOSPEL. Luke vii. 36, 50. AT that time : One of the Pharisees asked

Jesus to eat with him. And going into the Pharisee's house, he placed himself at table. And behold a woman who was a sinner in the city, when she knew that he was at table in the house of the Pharisee, brought an alabaster box of perfumes; and, ftanding behind at his feet, she began to wash his feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head ; and she kissed his feet, and anointed them with the perfumes. And the Pharisee, who had invited him, seeing it, spoke within himself, saying: This man, if he were a prophet, would certainly know who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him, that she is a sinner. And Jesus speaking, said to him : Simon, I have fomewhat to say to thee. And he said: Master, speak. A certain creditor had two debtors ; the one owed him five hundred pence, and the other fifty. And whereas they had not wherewith to pay, he forgave them both. Which therefore of the two loveth him most? Simon answering him, faid: I suppose that he, to whom he forgave the most. And he

said to him: Thou hast judged rightly. And turning to the woman, he said to Simon: Dost thou see this woman? I entered thy house; thou gaveft no water to my feet; but she hath washed my feet with tears, and hath wiped them with her hair. Thou gavest me not a kiss ; but she, since she came in, hath not ceased to kiss my feet. With perfumes my head thou anointedst not; but the with perfumes hath anointed my feet. Wherefore I say to thee : Her many fins are forgiven her, because she hath loved much. But to whom less is forgiven, he loveth less. And he said to her: Thy fins are forgiven thee. And they, who were at table with him, began to say within themselves: Who is this, that even forgiveth fins ? And he said to the woman: Thy faith hath faved thee; go in peace.

GOSPEL. John ii. 47, 54, AT

T that time: The chief priests and Pharisees

assembled in Council against Jesus, and said: What are we doing; for this man worketh many miracles? If we let him thus alone, all will believe in him: and the Romans will come and destroy our place f and nation. But one of them, named Caiphas, being high priest that year, faid to them: You know nothing, nor do you consider that it is expedient for you that one man should die for the people, and not the whole nation perish. But this he spake not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied, that Jesus was to die for the nation; and not for that nation only, but to gather together the children of God, who were dispersed every where. From that day therefore they resolved to put him to death. Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews, but retired to a
