epistle
II Cor. 4:5-14
Fratres: Non nosmetipso paraedicamus, sed Jesum Christeum Dominum nostrum: nos autem servos vestros per Jesum: quonniam Deus, qui dixit de tenebris lucem splendescere, upse illuxit in cordibus nostris ad illuminationem scientiae claritatis Dei, in faci Christi Jesu. Havemus autem thesaurum istum in vasis faictilibus: ut sublimitas sit virtutis Dei, et non ex nobis. In omnibus tribulationem patimur, sed non angustiamur: aporiamur sed non destituimur: persecutionem patimur, sed non derelinquimur: dejicimur, aded non perimus: semper mortificationem Jesus in corpore nostro circumferentes, ut et vita Jesu manifestetur in corporibus nostris. Semper enim nos, qui vivimus, in mortem tradimur propter jesusm: ut et vita Jesu manifestetur in carne nostra mortali. Ergo mors in nobis operature, a vita Jesu manifestetur in carne nostra mortali. Ergo mors in nobis operatur, vita autem in vobis. Habentes autem eumdem spiritum est: Credidi, propter quod locutus sum: et nos loquimur: scientes, quoniam qui suscitavit Jesum, et nos cum Jesu sucitabit, et constituet vobiscum   Frefres: Non nosmetipso paraedicamus, sed Jesum Christeum Dominum nostrum: nos autem servos vestros per Jesum: quonniam Deus, qui dixit de tenebris lucem splendescere, upse illuxit in cordibus nostris ad illuminationem scientiae claritatis Dei, in faci Christi Jesu.

gospel
Mt. 10:23-28
In illo tempore: Dixit Jesus discipulis suis: Vos estis sal terrae. Cum persequentur vos in civitate ista fugite in aliam. Amen dico vobis, non consummabitis civitates Israel, donec veniat Filius hominis. Non est discipulus super magistrum, nec servus super dominum suum. Suggicit discipulo, ut sit sicut magister ejus: et servo, sicut magister ejus: et servo sicut dominus ejus. Si patremfamilias Beelzebub vocaverunt; quanto magis domesticos ejus? Ne ergo timueritis eos. Nihil enim est opertum, quod non revelabiture; et occultum, quod non scietur. Quod dico vobis in tenebris, dicite in lumine, et quod in aure auditis, praedicate super tecta. Et nolite timere eos, qui occidunt corpus, animam autem non possunt occidere: sed potis timete eum, qui potest et animam, et corpus perdere in gehennam. At that time, Jesus said to His disciples: when they shall persecute you in this city, flee into another. Amen I say to you, you shall not finish all the cities of Israel, till the Son of man come. The disciple is not above the master, nor the servant above his lord. It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the goodman of the house Beelzebub, how much more them of his household? Therefore fear them not. For nothing is covered that shall not be revealed: nor hid, that shall not be known. That which I tell you in the dark, speak ye in the light: and that which you hear in the ear, preach ye upon the housetops. And fear ye not them that kill the body, and are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him that can destroy both soul and body in hell.

Preface
Preface for Easter
Vere dignum et iustum est, aequum et salutare, te quidem Domine omni tempore, sed in hoc potissimum die gloriosis praedicare, cum Pascha nostrum immolatus est Christus. Ipse enim verus est Angus qui abstulit peccata mundi. Qui mortem nostram moriendo destruxit, et vitam resurgendo reparavit. Et ideo cum Angelis et Archangelis, cum Thronis et Dominationibus, cumque omnia milita coelestis exercitus, hymnum gloriae tuae canimus, sine fine dicentes:   It it truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, at all times to praise Thee, O Lord, but more gloriously especially this day when Christ our Pasch was sacrificed. For He is the Lamb Who hath taken away the sins of the world: Who by dying hath destroyed our death: and by rising again hath restored us to life. And therefore with Angels and Archangels, with Thrones and Dominations, and with all the hosts of the heavenly army, we sing the hymn of Thy glory, evermore saying:
