Blessed art Thou, O Lord, the God of our Fathers. For Thou art just in all Thou hast done to us.
-THE EPISTLE (For the Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost)-
Make your vows to the Lord our God and perform them. God is known in Judah; His Name is great in Israel.
[The Reading from the Second Epistle of St. Paul to the Corinthians. (6:16-7:1)]
Brethren, we are the temple of the living God; as God said, “I will live in them and move among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. Therefore, come out from them, and be separate from them,” says the Lord, “and touch nothing unclean; then I will welcome you, and I will be a father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” Since we have these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of body and spirit, and make holiness perfect in the fear of God.
THE GOSPEL (For the Third Sunday of Luke)-
[The Reading from the Holy Gospel according to St. Luke. (7:11-16)]
At that time, Jesus went to a city called Nain, and many of His disciples and a great crowd went with Him. As He drew near to the gate of the city, behold, a man who had died was being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow; and a large crowd from the city was with her. And when the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her and said to her, “Do not weep.” And He came and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. And Jesus said, “Young man, I say to you: arise.” And the dead man sat up, and began to speak. And Jesus gave him to his mother. Fear seized them all; and they glorified God, saying, “A great prophet has arisen among us!” and “God has visited His people!”
Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous; praise is meet for the upright. Alleluia.
