Monday of Misericordias Domini (Easter 3)


First Reading: Ex. 33:1-23


 1And the LORD said unto Moses, Depart, and go up hence, thou and the people which thou hast brought up out of the land of Egypt, unto the land which I sware unto Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, Unto thy seed will I give it:

 2And I will send an angel before thee; and I will drive out the Canaanite, the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite:

 3Unto a land flowing with milk and honey: for I will not go up in the midst of thee; for thou art a stiffnecked people: lest I consume thee in the way.

 4And when the people heard these evil tidings, they mourned: and no man did put on him his ornaments.

 5For the LORD had said unto Moses, Say unto the children of Israel, Ye are a stiffnecked people: I will come up into the midst of thee in a moment, and consume thee: therefore now put off thy ornaments from thee, that I may know what to do unto thee.

 6And the children of Israel stripped themselves of their ornaments by the mount Horeb.

 7And Moses took the tabernacle, and pitched it without the camp, afar off from the camp, and called it the Tabernacle of the congregation. And it came to pass, that every one which sought the LORD went out unto the tabernacle of the congregation, which was without the camp.

 8And it came to pass, when Moses went out unto the tabernacle, that all the people rose up, and stood every man at his tent door, and looked after Moses, until he was gone into the tabernacle.

 9And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle, the cloudy pillar descended, and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the Lord talked with Moses.

 10And all the people saw the cloudy pillar stand at the tabernacle door: and all the people rose up and worshipped, every man in his tent door.

 11And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle.

 12And Moses said unto the LORD, See, thou sayest unto me, Bring up this people: and thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt send with me. Yet thou hast said, I know thee by name, and thou hast also found grace in my sight.

 13Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people.

 14And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.

 15And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence.

 16For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth.

 17And the LORD said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name.

 18And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.

 19And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.

 20And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.

 21And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock:

 22And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by:

 23And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.



Second Reading: Lk. 7:1-17


 1Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into Capernaum.

 2And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die.

 3And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant.

 4And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this:

 5For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue.

 6Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof:

 7Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed.

 8For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.

 9When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

 10And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick.

 11And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people.

 12Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her.

 13And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not.

 14And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.

 15And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother.

 16And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited his people.

 17And this rumour of him went forth throughout all Judaea, and throughout all the region round about.
