The Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost – Sunday, September 17
Semi-double Green vestments
The supernatural life of our souls requires that the grace of God should always go before us and accompany us (Collect). To Him be glory (Epistle), for He heals our infirmities (Gospel), and remains our support. Wherefore He teaches us in the Gospel the virtue of humility. In a short parable, He shows that God raises whoever humiliates himself.
