Prayer

He received all who came to him, and with complete assurance and without hindrance he proclaimed the Kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ.

Dearest Jesus, how do we proclaim Your gospel in a world divided by religion, in which many proclaim their religion to be the “true” religion? We know that conversion through the sword is wrong. We know that tolerance of others’ religions is necessary for world peace. Give us the wisdom to evangelize in new ways, Lord, and always remind us that the best way to spread Your gospel is to live it. Amen

Gospel

Peter turned and saw the disciple following whom Jesus loved,
the one who had also reclined upon his chest during the supper
and had said, “Master, who is the one who will betray you?”
When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, “Lord, what about him?”
Jesus said to him, “What if I want him to remain until I come?
What concern is it of yours?
You follow me.”
So the word spread among the brothers that that disciple would not die.
But Jesus had not told him that he would not die,
just “What if I want him to remain until I come?
What concern is it of yours?”

It is this disciple who testifies to these things
and has written them, and we know that his testimony is true.
There are also many other things that Jesus did,
but if these were to be described individually,
I do not think the whole world would contain the books
that would be written.
