The Seventh Sunday after Trinity.
Finem loquendi pariter omnes audiamus.
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: * Fear God,
And keep his commandments: * for this is the whole duty of man.
For God shall bring every work into judgment, * with every secret thing,
Whether it be good, * or whether it be evil.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son * and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be * world without end. Amen.
LORD of all power and might, who art the author and giver of all good things; Graft in our hearts the love of thy Name, increase in us true religion, nourish us with all goodness, and of thy great mercy keep us in the same; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
