Reading 3, 2 Cor 1: 8-11 : Suffering to depend on God

8 For we do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, of the affliction we experienced in Asia; for we were so utterly, unbearably crushed that we despaired of life itself.

9 Why, we felt that we had received the sentence of death; but that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead;

10 he delivered us from so deadly a peril, and he will deliver us; on him we have set our hope that he will deliver us again.

11 You also must help us by prayer, so that many will give thanks on our behalf for the blessing granted us in answer to many prayers.


Gospel, Jn 16: 25-33 : I have conquered the world

25"I have said this to you in figures; the hour is coming when I shall no longer speak to you in figures but tell you plainly of the Father.

26In that day you will ask in my name; and I do not say to you that I shall pray the Father for you;

27for the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me and have believed that I came from the Father.

28 I came from the Father and have come into the world; again, I am leaving the world and going to the Father."

29 His disciples said, "Ah, now you are speaking plainly, not in any figure!

30 Now we know that you know all things, and need none to question you; by this we believe that you came from God."

31 Jesus answered them, "Do you now believe?

32 The hour is coming, indeed it has come, when you will be scattered, every man to his home, and will leave me alone; yet I am not alone, for the Father is with me.

33 I have said this to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."
