ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who dost govern all things in heaven and earth: mercifully hear the supplications of thy people; and grant us thy peace all the days of our life.

The Lesson from the Apostle Paul to the Romans

BRETHREN: Having gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that showeth mercy, with cheerfulness. Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another; not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality. Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate.

Gradual

The Lord sent his Word and healed them: and they were saved from their destruction. O that men would therefore praise the Lord for his goodness: and declare the wonders that he doeth for the children of men.

Alleluia, alleluia. Ps. 148.2. Praise the Lord, all ye Angels of his: praise him all his host. Alleluia.

The continuation of the Holy Gospel according to John

AT that time: There was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there. And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. And there were set there six water-pots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, and saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now. This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.

Offertory
O be joyful in God, all ye lands: sing praises unto the honor of his Name: O come hither and hearken, all ye that fear God: and I will tell you what the Lord hath done for my soul, alleluia.

Preface: Trinity

It is very meet, right, just and availing unto salvation, that we should at all times, and in all places, give thanks unto thee, O Lord, holy Father, almighty, everlasting God: Who with thine only-begotten Son and the Holy Ghost art one God, one Lord: not one only Person, but three Persons in one Substance. For that which by thy revelation we believe of thy glory, the same we believe of thy Son, the same of the Holy Ghost, without any difference or inequality. That in the confession of the true and everlasting Godhead, distinction in Persons, unity in Essence, and equality in Majesty may be adored. Which the Angels and Archangels, the Cherubim also and Seraphim praise: who cease not daily to cry out, with one voice saying:
