Catholic Epistle

A Reading from Epistle 3 of St. John .
May his blessing be upon us.
Amen.

3 John 1 : 1 - 15

Chapter 1

1The Elder, To the beloved Gaius, whom I love in truth:
2Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
3For I rejoiced greatly when brethren came and testified of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the truth.
4I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
5Beloved, you do faithfully whatever you do for the brethren and for strangers,
6who have borne witness of your love before the church. If you send them forward on their journey in a manner worthy of God, you will do well,
7because they went forth for His name's sake, taking nothing from the Gentiles.
8We therefore ought to receive such, that we may become fellow workers for the truth.
9I wrote to the church, but Diotrephes, who loves to have the preeminence among them, does not receive us.
10Therefore, if I come, I will call to mind his deeds which he does, prating against us with malicious words. And not content with that, he himself does not receive the brethren, and forbids those who wish to, putting them out of the church.
11Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. He who does good is of God, but he who does evil has not seen God.
12Demetrius has a good testimony from all, and from the truth itself. And we also bear witness, and you know that our testimony is true.
13I had many things to write, but I do not wish to write to you with pen and ink;
14but I hope to see you shortly, and we shall speak face to face. Peace to you. Our friends greet you. Greet the friends by name.

Do not love the world or the things in the world.
The world passes away, and its desires; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
Amen.
