(Week 28 of the year: Saturday)
GOD HAS MADE CHRIST THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH, WHICH IS HIS BODY.
Wherefore I also, hearing of your faith that is in the Lord Jesus, and of your love towards all the saints,
Cease not to give thanks for you, making commemoration of you in my prayers,
That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and of revelation, in the knowledge of him:
The eyes of your heart enlightened, that you may know what the hope is of his calling, and what are the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints.
And what is the exceeding greatness of his power towards us, who believe according to the operation of the might of his power,
Which he wrought in Christ, raising him up from the dead, and setting him on his right hand in the heavenly places.
Above all principality, and power, and virtue, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in the world to come.
And he hath subjected all things under his feet, and hath made him head over all the church,
Which is his body, and the fulness of him who is filled all in all.
V. The word of the Lord.
R. Thanks be to God.
