Reading 3, 2 Thess 1:3-12 : Accept the sufferings for the Kingdom of God

3 We are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren, as is fitting, because your faith is growing abundantly, and the love of every one of you for one another is increasing. 
4 Therefore we ourselves boast of you in the churches of God for your steadfastness and faith in all your persecutions and in the afflictions which you are enduring. 
5 This is evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be made worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are suffering -- 
6 since indeed God deems it just to repay with affliction those who afflict you, 
7 and to grant rest with us to you who are afflicted, when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels in flaming fire, 
8 inflicting vengeance upon those who do not know God and upon those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. 
9 They shall suffer the punishment of eternal destruction and exclusion from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might, 
10 when he comes on that day to be glorified in his saints, and to be marveled at in all who have believed, because our testimony to you was believed. 
11 To this end we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his call, and may fulfil every good resolve and work of faith by his power, 
12 so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.


Gospel, Mt 20:29-34 : Jesus heals two blind men

 

16 "Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. 
17 Beware of men; for they will deliver you up to councils, and flog you in their synagogues, 
18 and you will be dragged before governors and kings for my sake, to bear testimony before them and the Gentiles. 
19 When they deliver you up, do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you are to say; for what you are to say will be given to you in that hour; 
20 for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. 
21 Brother will deliver up brother to death, and the father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death; 
22 and you will be hated by all for my name's sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.
