INTROIT Misericordia Domini. Ps. 33.
The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord, alleluia: by the word of the Lord were the heaven made, alleluia, alleluia. Ps. ibid. Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous: for it becometh well the just to be thankful V. Glory be.

ALMIGHTY GOD, who hast given thine only Son to be unto us both a sacrifice for sin, and also an ensample of godly life: give us grace that we may always most thankfully receive that his inestimable benefit, and also daily endeavour ourselves to follow the blessed steps of his most holy life; through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN.

EPISTLE. 1 Saint Peter 2:19-25
19 THIS is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully.
20 For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.
21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:
24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
25 For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

Alleluia, alleluia. V. St. Luke 24 The disciples knew the Lord Jesus in the breaking of bread. Alleluia. V. St. John 10. I am the Good Shepherd: and know my sheep, and am known of mine. Alleluia.

GOSPEL. Saint John 10:11-16
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

OFFERTORY. Ps. 63. O God, thou art my God, early will I seek thee: and I will lift up my hands in thy Name, alleluia.

WE PRAY thee, O Lord, that this holy oblation may ever obtain for us thy heavenly blessing: that those things which we shew forth in an outward mystery may effectually be accomplished in our inward souls. [Through.]

COMMUNION. St. John 10. I am the Good Shepherd, alleluia: and know my sheep, and am known of mine, alleluia, alleluia.

GRANT, we beseech thee, Almighty God, that we receiving the quickening of thy grace, may ever glory in the gift which thou bestowest. [Through.]
