  • Saints Cyril, Monk and Methodius, Bishop 2024:


    Acts 13:46-49

    46And Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly, saying, "It was necessary that the word of God should be spoken first to you. Since you thrust it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, behold, we turn to the Gentiles. 47For so the Lord has commanded us, saying, `I have set you to be a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the uttermost parts of the earth.'" 48And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and glorified the word of God; and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed. 49And the word of the Lord spread throughout all the region.


    Psalms 117:1-2

    1Praise the LORD, all nations! Extol him, all peoples! 2For great is his steadfast love toward us; and the faithfulness of the LORD endures for ever. Praise the LORD!


    Luke 10:1-9

    1After this the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to come. 2And he said to them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. 3Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. 4Carry no purse, no bag, no sandals; and salute no one on the road. 5Whatever house you enter, first say, `Peace be to this house!' 6And if a son of peace is there, your peace shall rest upon him; but if not, it shall return to you. 7And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages; do not go from house to house. 8Whenever you enter a town and they receive you, eat what is set before you; 9heal the sick in it and say to them, `The kingdom of God has come near to you.'


    Time of Lent.


    Jl 2:12-18

    Even now, says the LORD,
    return to me with your whole heart,
    with fasting, and weeping, and mourning;
    Rend your hearts, not your garments,
    and return to the LORD, your God.
    For gracious and merciful is he,
    slow to anger, rich in kindness,
    and relenting in punishment.
    Perhaps he will again relent
    and leave behind him a blessing,
    Offerings and libations
    for the LORD, your God.

    Blow the trumpet in Zion!
    proclaim a fast,
    call an assembly;
    Gather the people,
    notify the congregation;
    Assemble the elders,
    gather the children
    and the infants at the breast;
    Let the bridegroom quit his room
    and the bride her chamber.
    Between the porch and the altar
    let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep,
    And say, “Spare, O LORD, your people,
    and make not your heritage a reproach,
    with the nations ruling over them!
    Why should they say among the peoples,
    ‘Where is their God?’”

    Then the LORD was stirred to concern for his land
    and took pity on his people.


    Ps 51:3-4, 5-6ab, 12-13, 14 and 17

    R. (see 3a) Be merciful, O Lord, for we have sinned.
    Have mercy on me, O God, in your goodness;
    in the greatness of your compassion wipe out my offense.
    Thoroughly wash me from my guilt
    and of my sin cleanse me.
    R. Be merciful, O Lord, for we have sinned.
    For I acknowledge my offense,
    and my sin is before me always:
    “Against you only have I sinned,
    and done what is evil in your sight.”
    R. Be merciful, O Lord, for we have sinned.
    A clean heart create for me, O God,
    and a steadfast spirit renew within me.
    Cast me not out from your presence,
    and your Holy Spirit take not from me.
    R. Be merciful, O Lord, for we have sinned.
    Give me back the joy of your salvation,
    and a willing spirit sustain in me.
    O Lord, open my lips,
    and my mouth shall proclaim your praise.
    R. Be merciful, O Lord, for we have sinned.


    2 Cor 5:20—6:2

    Brothers and sisters:
    We are ambassadors for Christ,
    as if God were appealing through us.
    We implore you on behalf of Christ,
    be reconciled to God.
    For our sake he made him to be sin who did not know sin,
    so that we might become the righteousness of God in him.

    Working together, then,
    we appeal to you not to receive the grace of God in vain.
    For he says:

    In an acceptable time I heard you,
    and on the day of salvation I helped you.

    Behold, now is a very acceptable time;
    behold, now is the day of salvation.


    Mt 6:1-6, 16-18

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “Take care not to perform righteous deeds
    in order that people may see them;
    otherwise, you will have no recompense from your heavenly Father.
    When you give alms,
    do not blow a trumpet before you,
    as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets
    to win the praise of others.
    Amen, I say to you,
    they have received their reward.
    But when you give alms,
    do not let your left hand know what your right is doing,
    so that your almsgiving may be secret.
    And your Father who sees in secret will repay you.

    “When you pray,
    do not be like the hypocrites,
    who love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on street corners
    so that others may see them.
    Amen, I say to you,
    they have received their reward.
    But when you pray, go to your inner room,
    close the door, and pray to your Father in secret.
    And your Father who sees in secret will repay you.

    “When you fast,
    do not look gloomy like the hypocrites.
    They neglect their appearance,
    so that they may appear to others to be fasting.
    Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward.
    But when you fast,
    anoint your head and wash your face,
    so that you may not appear to be fasting,
    except to your Father who is hidden.
    And your Father who sees what is hidden will repay you.”
