Dear brothers and sisters, be patient as you wait for the Lord’s return…. Take courage, for the coming of the Lord is near.
warning to the rich
Almighty, ever-living God, shed the light of your glory on the peoples who are living in the shadow of death, as you did long ago, when our Lord Jesus Christ, the Sun of Justice, came among us from on high. Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever.
