 (2 Corinthians 6:16-7:1)

Brethren, what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people."  Therefore "Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you." "I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the Lord Almighty."

Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Alleluia!  Alleluia!  Alleluia!

Reader:            Let us come before His face with thanksgiving; let us shout with joy to Him with psalms!

 

People:            Alleluia!  Alleluia!  Alleluia!

Gospel

 (page 12)

 

If you are a tonsured Sub-deacon, Reader or Cantor,

chant the Gospel from the center of the chapel

facing the altar according to custom.

 

If you are not of such rank, do not chant or intone the Gospel

but read it in a normal speaking-voice at your place in the following manner:

 

 

Reader:            The Reading is from the holy Gospel according to St. Luke, Chapter 6, Verse 31 to 36.

At that time, the Lord said:  Just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise. But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive back, what credit is that to you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back. But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.
