"And ye shall do no work in that same day; for it is a Day of Atonement,

to make an atonement for you before the Lord Your God. •

"For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people.

"And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people.

"Ye shall do no manner of work; it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

ministers that heated it.

The Epistle: .

A Reading from the Epistle of blessed Paul the Apostle to the Hebrews:

Brethren: There was a Tabernacle made; the First, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread; 'Which is called the Sanctuary.

And after the Second, Veil, the Tabernacle Which is called the Holiest of

all;

Which had the Golden Censer, and the Ark of the Covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the Tables of the Covenant;

And over it the Cherubim of glory shadowing the mercy-seat; of which we cannot now speak particularly.

Now when these things were thus ordained, the Priests went always into the First Tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God.

But into the Second went the High Priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people;

The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the Holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the First Tabernacle was yet standing;

Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience;

Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them, until the time of reformation.

I

.1 I I I

But Christ Being Come an High Priest of good things to come, by a Greater and More Perfect Tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;

Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His Own Blood He entered in once into the Holy Place, Having Obtained eternal redemption for us. (Heb. 9: 2 - 12) ~. Thanks be to God.

.

The Tract (II):

o praise the Lord, all ye heathen; and laud Him, all ye nations.

When Ordination to the Priesthood is to be conferred at this Mass upon one of the Deacons, the Mass is paused here to conduct the Rite of Ordaining a Presbyter before resuming with the following Verse. At all other times, the following Verse immediately [ollows. after that above:

YI.. For His merciful kindness is ever more and more towards us; and the

Truth of the Lord endureth for ever. .

/

The Gospel:

Yr. The Lord be with you. ~. An~ with thy spirit. y. The Holy Gospel according to Luke.

~. Glory' be to Thee, 0 Lord.

At that time: Jesus' spake this. Parable to the multitude: "A certain man , had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he carne and sought fruit thereon, and i

found none. •

"Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, 'Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none; cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?'

"And he answering said unto him, 'Lord, let it alone this year also, till I

shall dig about it, and dung it; .

" 'And if it bear fruit, well; and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.' "

And He was teaching in one of the Synagogues on the Sabbath.

And, ~eh~ld, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself.

And when Jesus saw her, He called her to him, and said unto her,

"Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity." ,

And He laid His Hands on her; and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.

And the Ruler of the Synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the Sabbath day, and said unto the people,

"There are six days in which men ought to work; in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the Sabbath day."

The Lord then answered him, and said, "Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the Sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering?

"And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath boundvlo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day?"

And when He had said these things, all His adversaries were ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by Him. (Luke 13: 6 - 17) ~. Praise be to Thee, 0 Christ.

{The Creed is omitted J

And to sanctify to Thee the fast which Thou hast taught us to keep for the edification of 'souls and the chastising of bodies. For souls are fed by bodies restricted; and in this our external humanity is stricken, and our interior amplified. Be Mindful, we beseech Thee, 0 Lord, of our fasts and of Thy mercies; and shew that we, who are abstaining not only from food, but also from all sins, may be pleasing to Thee in the fasting of devotion. Through Christ Our Lord. Through Whom Angels praise Thy Majesty, Dominions adore.. Powers tremble, the Heavens, and the heavenly Virtues, and the blessed Seraphim unite in one glad voice in extolling Thee. Together with whom, we pray Thee, that Thou wouldest command that our voices should have entrance, humbly confessing Thee, and saying:
