promise was first given, when God
Telephone: said to him, "In thy seed shall all the
305- 854-2922 nations of the earth be blessed" (Gen.
22:18). This promise was given some
Fax: two thousand years before Christ,
305-858-1854 when Abraham was seventy-five
years of age. God called him and commanded him to forsake his country,
Website: parents, and kinsmen, and to depart to the land of the Canaanites. When he

Scripture Readings

Epistle Reading:

The reading is from St. Paul's Second Letter to Timothy1:8-18.

TIMOTHY, my son, do not be ashamed then of testifying to our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share
in suffering for the gospel in the power of God, who saved us and called us with a holy calling, not in virtue
of our works but in virtue of his own purpose and the grace which he gave us in Christ Jesus ages ago, and
now has manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought
life and immortality to light through the gospel. For this gospel I was appointed a preacher and apostle
and teacher, and therefore I suffer as I do. But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am
sure that he is able to guard until that Day what has been entrusted to me. Follow the pattern of the
sound words which you have heard from me, in the faith and love which are in Christ Jesus; guard the truth
that has been entrusted to you by the Holy Spirit who dwells within us. You are aware that all who are in
Asia turned away from me, and among them Phygelos and Hermogenes. May the Lord grant mercy to the
household of Onesiphoros, for he often refreshed me; he was not ashamed of my chains, but when he ar-
rived in Rome he searched for me eagerly and found me - may the Lord grant him to find mercy from the

Lord on that Day and you well know all the service he rendered at Ephesos.

Gospel Reading:
The Reading is from Luke 14:16-24

The Lord said this parable: "A man once gave a great banquet, and invited
many; and at the time of the banquet he sent his servant to say to those who
had been invited, 'Come; for all is now ready.' But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said to
him, 'I have bought a field, and I go out and see it; I pray you, have me excused.' And another said, 'I have
bought five yoke of oxen, and I must go to examine them; I pray you, have me excused.' And another said, 'I
have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.' So the servant came and reported this to his master.
Then the householder in anger said to his servant, 'Go out quickly to the streets and lanes of the city, and
bring in the poor and maimed and blind and lame.' And the servant said, 'Sir, what you commanded has
been done, and there is still room.' And the master said to the servant, 'Go out to the highways and hedg-
es, and compel people to come in, that my house may be filled. For I tell you, none of those men who were
invited shall taste my banquet. For many are called, but few are chosen.'"
