A.D. 1201. ON THE OBSERVANCE OF THE LORD'S BAT. 527 ' I am the Lord, who commanded you to observe the holy day of the Lord, and ye have not kept it, and have not repented of your sins, as I have said in my Gospel, ' Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.'8 7 Whereas I caused to be preached unto you repentance and amendment of life, you did not believe me, I have sent against you the pagans, who have shed your blood on the earth ; and yet you have not believed ; and, because you did not keep the Lord's day holy, for a few days you suffered hunger, but soon I gave you fulness, and after that you did still worse again. Once more, it is my will, that no one, from the ninth hour on Saturday until sunrise on Monday, shall do any work except that which is good. And if any person shall do so, he shall with penance make amends for the same. And if you do not pay obedience to this command, verily, I say unto you, and I swear to you, by my seat and by my throne, and by the cherubim who watch my holy seat, that I will give you my commands by no other Epistle, but I will open the heavens, and for rain I will rain upon you stones, and wood, and hot water, in the night, that no one may take precautions against the same, and that so I may destroy all wicked men. This do I say unto you ; for the Lord's holy day, you shall die the death, and for the other festivals of my Saints which you have not kept : I will send unto you beasts that have the heads of lions, the hair of women, the tails of camels, and they shall be so ravenous that they ehall devour your flesh, and you shall long to flee away to the tombs of the dead, and to hide yourselves for fear of the beasts; and I will take away the light of the sun from before your eyes, and will send darkness upon you, that not seeing, you may slay one another, and that I may remove from you my face, and may not show mercy upon you. Eor I will burn the bodies and the hearts of you, and of all of those who do not keep as holy the day of the Lord. Hear ye my voice, that so ye may not perish in the land, for the holy day of the Lord. Depart from evil, and shew repentance for your sins. For, if you do not do so, even as Sodom and Gomorrah shall you perish. Now, know ye, that you are saved by the prayers of my most holy Mother, Mary, and of my most holy angels, who pray for you daily. I have given unto you wheat and wine in-abundance, and for the same ye have not obeyed me. For the widows and orphans cry unto you daily, and unto them you show no mercy. κ St. Matt. xxiv. 35. St. Mark xiii. 31. St" Luke xxi. 33.
