Friday after Pentecost-Ember Day
And when Jesus knew their thoughts, answering He said to them: What is it you think in your hearts? Which is easier to say, thy sins are forgiven thee; or to say, Arise and walk?
But that you may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins (He saith to the sick of the palsy): I say to thee, Arise, take up thy bed and go into thy house. And immediately rising up before them, he took up the bed on which he lay; and he went away to his own house, glorifying God. And all were astonished; and they glorified God. And they were filled with fear, saying: We have seen wonderful things to-day.
