EPISTLE. Eph. V. 22, 33. Brethren: Let women be subject to their husbands, as to the Lord. Because the husband is the head of the wife: as Christ is the head of the Church: he is the Saviour of his body. Therefore as the Church is subject to Christ, so also let the wives be to their husbands in all things. Husbands love your wives, as Christ also loved the Church, and delivered himself up for it: that he might sanctify it, cleansing it by the laver of water in the word of life, that he might present it to himself a glorious Church not having spot or wrinkle, nor any such thing, but that it should be holy and without blemish. So also ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth bis wife, loveth himself. For no man ever hated his own Mesh: but nourisheth and cherisheth it, as also Christ doth the Church: for we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. “ For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother: and shall stick to his wise, and they shall be two in one flesh.” This is a great sacrament: but I speak in Christ and in the Church. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular love his wife as himself: and let the wife fear her husband.

GRAD. Ps. cxxvii. Thy wife shall be as a: fruitful vine on the sides of thy house. V. Thy children as olive plants round about thy table. Alleluia, Alleluia. V. Ps. xix. May the Lord send thee help from the sanctuary, and defend theo out of Sion. 'Alleluia.

TRACT. Ps. cxxvii. Behold thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord. V. May the Lord bless thee out of Sion, and mayest thou see the good things of Jerusalem all the days of thy life. V. And mayest thou sce thy children's children: peace upon Israel.

GOSPEL Malt. xix. 3, 6. At that time : The Pharisees came to Jesus, tempting him, and saying:

SECRET. Receive, we beseech thee, O Lord, bleits,

Is it lawful for a man to put away his wise for every
cause? Who answering said to them: Have ye not
read, that he who made man from the beginning, made
them male and female ? And he said: " for this cause
shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleare
to his wife, and they two shall be in one desha."
Therefore now they are not two, but one flesh.
What therefore God hath joined together, let not to
man put asunder.

OFFERT. Ps. XXX. In thee, O Lord, have I put my trust: I have said: thou art my God: my life is in thy hands.

The NUPTIAL BLESSING. After the Pater noster, the Priest standing on the Sulini Epistle sitle, turns towards the Bridegroom and Bride kneeling before him, and says :

Let us pray. Propitiare. MERCIFULLY give ear, O Lord, to our prayers, and let thy grace accompany this thy institution, by which thou hast ordained the propagation of mankind, that this tie, which is made by thy authority, way be preserved by thy grace. Thro?.' R. Amen.

Let us pray. Deus qui potestate. O God, who, by the power of thy might, didst create all things out of nothing: who, at the first forming of the world, having made man to the likeness of God, didst, out of his flesh, make the woman, and give her to him for a helprate: and by this didst inform us, that what in its beginning was one, ought never to be separated. O God, who by so excellent a mystery, hast consecrated this union of the two sexes, and hast been pleased to make it a type of the great sacrament of Christ and his Church. O God, by whom woman is joined to man, and that union, which
