NEW TESTAMENT (Second Reading)
A Reading from the First Letter of St. John
See what love the Father has bestowed on us
that we may be called the children of God.
Yet so we are.
The reason the world does not know us
is that it did not know him.
Beloved, we are God’s children now;
what we shall be has not yet been revealed.
We do know that when it is revealed
we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.
Everyone who has this hope based on him
makes himself pure, as he is pure.
The Word of the Lord
