Reading of the second letter of Saint Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians (2 Co 13, 11-13)

Brothers, be in joy, seek perfection, encourage yourself, agree among yourselves, live in peace, and the God of love and peace will be with you. Greet each other with a kiss of peace. All the faithful greet you. May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
Word of the Lord: We give thanks to God.
