tism which John preached, Jesus of Nazareth : how God anointed him with the Holy Ghost, and with power, who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him. And we are witnesses of all things that he did in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem, whom they killed hanging him upon a tree. Him God raised up the third day, and gave him to be made manifest. Not to all the people, but to witnesses pre-ordained by God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose again from the dead. And he commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is he who was appointed by God to be judge of the living and of the dead. To him all the prophets give testimony, that through his name all receive remission of sins, who believe in him.

GOSPEL. Luke xxiv. 13. 35.--At that time : Two of the disciples of Jesus went the same day to a town which was sixty furlongs from Jerusalem, named Emmaus. And they talked together of all these things which had happened. And it came to pass, that while they talked and reasoned with themselves, Jesus himself also drawing near, went with them. But their eyes were held that they should not know him. And he said to them: What are these discourses that you hold one with another as you walk, and are sad? And the one of them whose name was Cleophas, answering, said to him: Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things that have been done there in these days? To whom he said ; What things ? And they said : Colie cerning Jesus of Nazareth, who was a prophet, mighty in work and word before God and all the people. And how our chief priests and princes de livered him to be condemned to death, and crucified him. But we hoped that it was he that should have redeemed Israel: and now besides all this, today is the third day since these things were done. Yea and certain women also of our company, affrigbted us, who before it was light were at the sepulchre. And not finding his body, came, saying that they had also seen a vision of angels, who say that he is alive. And some of our people went to the sepulchre : and found it so as the women had said, but him they found not. Then he said to them;
which the prophets have spoken. Ought not Christ
glory? And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded to them in all the scriptures the things that were concerning him. And they drew nigh to the town whither they were going: and he made as though he would go farther. But they constrained him, saying: Stay with us, because it is towards evening, and the day is now far spent. And he went in with them. And it came to pass, whilst he was at table with them, he took bread; and blessed and brake, and gave to them. And their eyes were opened, and they knew him: and he vanished out of their sight. And they said one to the other: Was not our hearts burning within us, whilst he spoke in the way, and opened to us the scriptures ? .And rising up the same hour they went back to Jerusalem: and they found the eleven gathered together, and those that were with them. Saying, the Lord is risen indeed, and liath appeared to Simon. And they told what things were done in
the way: and how they knew him in the breaking of bread. CREDO.

LESSON. Acts xii. 26. 33. --In those days : Paul standing up, and with his hand bespeaking silence, said: My brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whosoever among you fear God, to you the word of this salvation is sent. For they that inhabited Jerusalem, and the rulers thereof, not knowing him, nor the voices of the prophets which are read every Sabbath, judging him have fulfilled them, and finding no cause of death in him, they desired of Pilate, that they might kill him. And when they had fulfilled all things that were written of him, taking him down from the tree, they laid him in a 1 Repulchre. But God raised him up from the dead the third day: who was seen for many days by them who came up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, } who to this present are his witnesses to the people. [ And we declare unto you that the promise which
was made to our fathers, this same God hath fulfilled to our children, raising up Jesus Christ our Lord.

GOSPEL. Luke xxiv. 36. 47.- At that time : Jesus stood in the midst of his disciples, and said to them: Peace be to you; it is I, fear not. But they being troubled and frighted, supposed they saw a spirit. And he said to them: Why are you troulbled, and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself; handle me and see: for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as you see me to have. And when he had said this, he shewed them his hands and his feet. But while they vet believed not and wondered for joy, he said: Have you here any thing to eat? And they offered him a piece of broiled fish, and a honey comb. And when he had eaten before them, taking the remains he gave to them. And he said to them : These are the words which I have spoke to you whilst I was yet with you, that all things must needs be fulfilled, which are written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. Then he opened their understandings that they might understand the scriptures. And he said to them: Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise again from the dead the third day: and that penance and remission of sins should be preached in his name unto all nations.
