The Lesson of the Epistle of the Holy Apostle Paul to the Thessalonians.
I Thessalonians §262 (1:1-5).
Paul and Sylvanus and Timothy: to the church of the Thessalonians, in God the Father, and in the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace be to you and peace. We give thanks to God always for you all; making a remembrance of you in our prayers without ceasing, being mindful of the work of your faith, and labour, and charity, and of the enduring of the hope of our Lord Jesus Christ before God and our Father: knowing, brethren beloved of God, your election: for our gospel hath not been unto you in word only, but in power also, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much fulness, as you know what manner of men we have been among you for your sakes.
The Lesson of the Holy Gospel according to Saint Luke.
Saint Luke §52 (10:22-24).
The Lord said to His disciples: All things are delivered to Me by My Father; and no one knoweth Who the Son is, but the Father; and Who the Father is, but the Son, and to whom the Son will reveal Him. And turning to His disciples, He said: Blessed are the eyes that see the things which you see. For I say to you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see the things that you see, and have not seen them; and to hear the things that you hear, and have not heard them.
