About the author of the Second Reading in today's Office of Readings:
|Mid-morning reading (Terce)||1 Timothy 2:4-6 ©|
God our saviour wants everyone to be saved and reach full knowledge of the truth. For there is only one God, and there is only one mediator between God and mankind, himself a man, Christ Jesus, who sacrificed himself as a ransom for them all. He is the evidence of this, sent at the appointed time.
|Noon reading (Sext)||Romans 15:3 ©|
Christ did not think of himself. The words of scripture apply to him: the insults of those who insult you fall on me.
|Afternoon reading (None)||Hebrews 9:28 ©|
Christ offers himself only once to take the faults of many on himself, and when he appears a second time, it will not be to deal with sin but to reward with salvation those who are waiting for him.
