November 13: Twenty Second Sunday after Pentecost/Fourth Sunday of November




After Rubens, 1600-1640
 The Scripture readings for Matins this Sunday, to which the Magnificat antiphon for I Vespers alludes (though it is not Scriptural) are from Hosea, the first of the 'minor prophets' in the Bible, and who preached around the year 750 BC.


The Gospel for this Sunday is from Matthew 22:15-21, which elicits the famous dictum to render unto Caesar the things that are of Caesar, to God the things of God, the subject of the Canticle antiphons for the Sunday.
