The Monday in the Seventeenth Week After Pentecost
O Lord, who hast taught us that all our doings without charity are nothing worth: Send thine Holy Ghost and pour into our hearts that most excellent gift of charity, the very bond of peace and of all virtues, without which whosoever liveth is counted dead before thee; grant this for the sake of Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the same Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
