      "Who is the man that can acquire a pure mind while loving idle chatter? And
      who can acquire lowly thoughts while seeking to capture glory from men? Or,
      who can become pure of thought and humble of heart when he is licentious and
      dissolute in his members? For whenever the intellect is drawn away by the
      senses, it also eats the food of beasts with them. But when the senses are
      drawn by the intellect they partake together with it of the sustenance of
      angels."
      St. Isaac of Syria.

      "Moses said to God, "Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should
      bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?" So He said, "I will certainly be
      with you." Exodus 3:11,12

      The Bible reading for the 24th of Baona, July 1st, is:
      25 Now great multitudes went with Him. And He turned and said to them, 26 "If
      anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and
      children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My
      disciple. 27 And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be
      My disciple. 28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit
      down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it-- 29 lest,
      after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it
      begin to mock him, 30 saying, 'This man began to build and was not able to
      finish.' 31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, does not
      sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him
      who comes against him with twenty thousand? 32 Or else, while the other is
      still a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks conditions of peace. 33
      So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My
      disciple. 34 "Salt is good; but if the salt has lost its flavor, how shall it
      be seasoned? 35 It is neither fit for the land nor for the dunghill, but men
      throw it out. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!" (Luke 14:25-35)
      Martyrdom of St. Moses the Strong.
      The Bible reading for the 25th of Baona, July 2nd, is: Luke 10:1-20
      Martyrdom of St. Jude the Apostle.

        Christ is my God and my hope.
        His cross is the rod of my faith.
        His pierced side is the flood of my baptism.
        The blood of His flagellation is the oil of my anointment.
        His apostles are the guide of my way.
        My lady Mariam is the door of my salvation.

        The Bible reading for the 26th of Baunah, July 3, is:
        13 But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in. 14 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows' houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. Therefore you will receive greater condemnation. 15 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves. 16 Woe to you, blind guides, who say, `Whoever swears by the temple, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the temple, he is obliged to perform it.' 17 Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gold or the temple that sanctifies the gold? 18 And, `Whoever swears by the altar, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gift that is on it, he is obliged to perform it.' 19 Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gift or the altar that sanctifies the gift? 20 Therefore he who swears by the altar, swears by it and by all things on it. 21 He who swears by the temple, swears by it and by Him who dwells in it. 22 And he who swears by heaven, swears by the throne of God and by Him who sits on it. 23 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone. 24 Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel! 25 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence. 26 Blind Pharisee, first cleanse the inside of the cup and dish, that the outside of them may be clean also. 27 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men's bones and all uncleanness. 28 Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness. 29 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous, 30 and say, `If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.' 31 Therefore you are witnesses against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. 32 Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers' guilt. 33 Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell? 34 Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes: some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city, 35 that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. 36 Assuredly, I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation. (Matt. 23:13-36)
