"Take care, brothers and sisters..."
an evil and unfaithful heart,
so as to forsake the living God.
"Encourage yourselves daily
while it is still “today,”
so that none of you
may grow hardened by the deceit of sin.
"We have become partners of Christ
if only we hold the beginning of the reality
firm until the end."
(From today's first reading - Hebrews 3:7-14)
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, be merciful to me - a sinner.
