  7. Maccabees  12:43-46  

A reading from the Book of Maccabees


Judas {The ruler of Israel) then took up a collection among all

His soldiers, amounting to two thousand silver drachmas,

Which he sent to Jerusalem to provide for an expiatory sacrifice.

In doing this he acted in a very excellent and noble way,

In as much as he ahd the resurrection of the dead in view; for if he

Were not expecting the fallen to rise again, it would have been  useless

And foolish to pray for tehm in death.  But if he did this with a

View to the splendid  reward that awaits those who had gone to rest in

Godliness, it was a holy and pious thought.

Thus he made atonement for the dead that they might be freed from this sin.

This is the Word of the Lord.
