EPIPHANY OF THE LORD — Year A

Second Reading: Ephesians 3:2-3, 5-6

A reading from the letter of Paul to the Ephesians.

I am sure that you have heard of God’s grace,

of which I was made a steward on your behalf,

this mystery, as I have briefly described it, was revealed to me; unknown to the people of former ages,

but now revealed by the Spirit to the holy apostles and prophets. That mystery is that the Gentiles are heirs with us,

members of the body just as we are,

and partakers of the promise of Jesus the Messiah

through the Good News, as are we.

The Word of God recorded in the letter of Paul to the Ephesians.
