Boniface of Mainz, Missionary to the Germans


First Reading: Num. 16:23-40

 23And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

 24Speak unto the congregation, saying, Get you up from about the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram.

 25And Moses rose up and went unto Dathan and Abiram; and the elders of Israel followed him.

 26And he spake unto the congregation, saying, Depart, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of their's, lest ye be consumed in all their sins.

 27So they gat up from the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, on every side: and Dathan and Abiram came out, and stood in the door of their tents, and their wives, and their sons, and their little children.

 28And Moses said, Hereby ye shall know that the LORD hath sent me to do all these works; for I have not done them of mine own mind.

 29If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be visited after the visitation of all men; then the LORD hath not sent me.

 30But if the LORD make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they go down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand that these men have provoked the LORD.

 31And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them:

 32And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods.

 33They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation.

 34And all Israel that were round about them fled at the cry of them: for they said, Lest the earth swallow us up also.

 35And there came out a fire from the LORD, and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense.

 36And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

 37Speak unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, that he take up the censers out of the burning, and scatter thou the fire yonder; for they are hallowed.

 38The censers of these sinners against their own souls, let them make them broad plates for a covering of the altar: for they offered them before the LORD, therefore they are hallowed: and they shall be a sign unto the children of Israel.

 39And Eleazar the priest took the brasen censers, wherewith they that were burnt had offered; and they were made broad plates for a covering of the altar:

 40To be a memorial unto the children of Israel, that no stranger, which is not of the seed of Aaron, come near to offer incense before the LORD; that he be not as Korah, and as his company: as the LORD said to him by the hand of Moses.

Second Reading: Lk. 19:29-48

 29And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount called the mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples,

 30Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him, and bring him hither.

 31And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him.

 32And they that were sent went their way, and found even as he had said unto them.

 33And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto them, Why loose ye the colt?

 34And they said, The Lord hath need of him.

 35And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon.

 36And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way.

 37And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;

 38Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.

 39And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.

 40And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.

 41And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,

 42Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.

 43For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,

 44And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.

 45And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought;

 46Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.

 47And he taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and the scribes and the chief of the people sought to destroy him,

 48And could not find what they might do: for all the people were very attentive to hear him.
