A reading from the letter of Pau to the Galatians.
May I never boast of anything but the cross of our Savior Jesus Christ. Through it the world has been crucified – to me and I to the world. It means nothing whether one is circumcised or not. All that matters is that one is created anew. Peace and mercy on all who follow this rule of life, and on the Israel of God.
Henceforth, let no one trouble me, for I bear the brand marks of Jesus in my body.
Sisters and brothers, may the fervor of our Savior Jesus Christ be with your spirit.
The Word of God recorded in the letter of Paul to the Galatians.
