EPISTLE.' 1 Cor. vii. 25. 34. Brethren: Concernings virgins I have no commandment of the * Lord: but I give counsel, as having obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful. I think therefore that this is good for the present necessity, for a man so to be. Art thou bound to a wife ? seek not to be loosed, Art thou loosed from a wife ? seek not a wife. But if thou take a wife, thou hast not sinned.' And if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned : never theless, such shall have tribulation of the flesh. Buty I spare you. This therefore I say, brethren: the time is short: it remaineth, that they also who have "" wives, be as if they had none; and they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as if they rejoiced not; and they that buy as though they possessed not; and they that use this world, as ** if they used it not: for the fashion of this world pasar seth away. But I would have you to be without soww licitude. He that is without a wife, is solicitous for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please God. But he that is with a wife, is solicitous for the things of the world, how he may please his of wifo; and he is divided. And the unmarried woman and the virgin thinketh on the things of the Lord; that she may be holy both in body and spirit, iuza Christ Jesus our Lord. Dit 20 por que vot. 1469

TRACT, Audi filia, p. 498. ' .? GOSPEL. Matt. xii. 44. 52. At that time : Jesus spake to his disciples this parable : The kingdom of heaven is like unto a treasure hidden in a field. Which a man having found, hid it, and for joy thereof goeth, and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. Again the kingdom of heaven is like to a merchant seeking good pearls. Who when he had found one pearl of great price, went his way, and sold all that he had, and bought it. Again the kingdom of heaven is like to a net cast into the sea, and gathering together of all kinds of fishes. Which, when it was filled they drew out, and sitting by the shore, they chose out the good into vessels, but the bad they cast forth. So shall it be at the end of the world. The angels shall go out, and shall separate the wicked from among the just. And shall cast them into the furnace of fire ; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Have ye understood all these things? They say to him: Yes. He said unto them: Therefore every scribe instructed in the kingdom of heaven, is like to a man who is a householder, who bringeth forth out of his treasure new things and old.

OFFERT. Ps. xliv. After her shall virgina be brought to the King: her neighbours shall be brought to thee with gladness and rejoicing: they shall be brought into the temple of the Lord the King.

who have sanctified the married state by the ex. ercise of the virtues of a profound humility, unwearied patience, and purity of heart, but also to others, who after an irregular course of life, became so highly inflamed with the love of God, as to be rendered almost equal to virgins. Let us then beg of Him, throngh the intercession of these Saints, that he would grant us the grace of a sincere conipunction for our past transgressions, accompanied by such an ardent charity as covereth a multitude of sins.
