The Day of Atonement(A)

26 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 27 (B)“Also the tenth day of this seventh month shall be the Day of Atonement. It shall be a holy convocation for you; you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. 28 And you shall do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement, (C)to make atonement for you before the Lord your God. 29 For any person who is not (D)afflicted in soul on that same day (E)shall be cut off from his people. 30 And any person who does any work on that same day, (F)that person I will destroy from among his people. 31 You shall do no manner of work; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. 32 It shall be to you a sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall [a]afflict your souls; on the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you shall [b]celebrate your sabbath.”

All things were created (E)through Him and for Him. 17 (F)And He is before all things, and in Him (G)all things consist.

Appreciation of the Mystery

14 For this reason I bow my knees to the (A)Father [a]of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 that He would grant you, (B)according to the riches of His glory, (C)to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in (D)the inner man, 17 (E)that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, (F)being rooted and grounded in love, 18 (G)may be able to comprehend with all the saints (H)what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled (I)with all the fullness of God.

20 Now (J)to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly (K)above all that we ask or think, (L)according to the power that works in us, 21 (M)to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
