August 14: Ninth Sunday after Pentecost (and Second Sunday of August)

David Roberts, 1850

The first Nocturn readings for Matins today are from Chapter 1 of Ecclesiastes.   The Gospel, referred to in the Benedictus and Magnificat antiphons, is St Luke 19:41-47, the cleansing of the Temple, and Jesus' prophesy of its destruction.
