The Tenth Sunday after Trinity.
Hæc dicit Dominus
Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, * neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:
But let him that glorieth glory in this, * that he understandeth and knoweth me,
That I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: * for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.
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.
LET thy merciful ears, O Lord, be open to the prayers of thy humble servants; and that they may obtain their petitions make them to ask such things as shall please thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Transfiguration of Christ
O GOD, who on the mount didst reveal to chosen witnesses thine only-begotten Son wonderfully transfigured, in raiment white and glistering; Mercifully grant that we, being delivered from the disquietude of this world, may be permitted to behold the King in his beauty, who with thee, O Father, and thee, O Holy Ghost, liveth and reigneth, one God, world without end. Amen.
