Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Prayer: We beseech You, Almighty God, to look in mercy on Your people: that by Your great goodness they may be governed and kept safe evermore; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
