Saturday of the 31st Week in Ordinary Time
3 Greet Prisca and Aq’uila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus, 4 who risked their necks for my life, to whom not only I but also all the churches of the Gentiles give thanks; 5 greet also the church in their house. Greet my beloved Epae’netus, who was the first convert in Asia for Christ. 6 Greet Mary, who has worked hard among you. 7 Greet Androni’cus and Ju’nias, my kinsmen and my fellow prisoners; they are men of note among the apostles, and they were in Christ before me. 8 Greet Amplia’tus, my beloved in the Lord. 9 Greet Urba’nus, our fellow worker in Christ, and my beloved Stachys. 16 Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the churches of Christ greet you. 22 I Tertius, the writer of this letter, greet you in the Lord. 23 Ga’ius, who is host to me and to the whole church, greets you. Eras’tus, the city treasurer, and our brother Quartus, greet you. 25 Now to him who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery which was kept secret for long ages 26 but is now disclosed and through the prophetic writings is made known to all nations, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith — 27 to the only wise God be glory for evermore through Jesus Christ! Amen.
Reflection for the day: “When the Holy Rosary is said well, it gives Jesus and Mary more glory and is more meritorious than any other prayer.” — St. Louis de Montfort
