Collect

O God, Who knowest us to be set in the midst of dangers so great that, by reason of the frailty of our nature, we cannot al-ways withstand; grant to us health of mind and body, that being helped by Thee, we may overcome the things which we suffer for our sins. Through our Lord.

Epistle

Romans 13:8-10

Brethren: Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth his neighbour hath fulfilled the law. For Thou shalt not commit adultery: Thou shalt not kill: Thou shalt not steal: Thou shalt not bear false witness: Thou shalt not covet: and if there be any other commandment, it is comprised in this word: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. The love of our neighbour worketh no evil. Love therefore is the fulfilling of the law.

Gospel

Matthew 8:23-27

At that time, when Jesus entered into the boat, His disciples followed Him: and be-hold a great tempest arose in the sea, so that the boat was covered with waves, but He was asleep. And His disciples came to Him and awaked Him, saying: Lord, save us, we perish. And Jesus saith to them: Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith? Then rising up, He commanded the winds and the sea, and there came a great calm. But the men wondered, saying: What man-ner of man is this, for the winds and the sea obey him?
