Epistle  •  Ecclesiasticus 24:14-16

Lesson from the Book of Ecclesiasticus.

[Wisdom (here a figure of the Blessed Virgin) speaks, of Herself: Her origin, Her dwelling, Her dignity and Her fruits.]

From the beginning, and before the world, was I created, and unto the world to come I shall not cease to be, and in the holy dwelling place I have ministered before Him. And so was I established in Sion, and in the holy city likewise I rested, and My power was in Jerusalem. And I took root in an honorable people, and in the portion of My God His inheritance, and My abode is in the full assembly of Saints.



Gospel  •  Luke 11:27-28

Continuation of the holy Gospel according to St. Luke.  

[The holy Mother of God is blessed among women.]

At that time, as Jesus was speaking to the multitudes, a certain woman from the crowd, lifting up her voice, said to Him: Blessed is the womb that bore Thee and the paps that gave Thee suck. But He said: Yea rather, blessed are they who hear the word of God and keep it.
