Lectio Epistolae Beati Pauli Apostoli ad Philippenses – Lesson from the Epistle of Blessed Paul the Apostle to the Philippians

Philippians 1 : 6-11

Fratres : Confidimus in Domino Jesu, quia, qui coepit in vobis opus bonum, perficiet usque in diem Christi Jesu. Sicut est mihi justum hoc sentire pro omnibus vobis : eo quos habeam vos in corde, et in vinculis meis, et in defensione, et confirmatione Evangelii, socios gaudii mei omnes vos esse. Testis enjm mihi est Deus, quomodo cupiam omnes vos in visceribus Jesu Christi.

Et hoc oro, ut caritas vestris magis ac magis abundet in scientia et in omni sensu : ut probetis potiora, ut sitis sinceri et sine offensa in diem Christi, repleti fructu justitiae per Jesum Christum, in gloriam et laudem Dei.

English translation

Brethren, we are confident in the Lord Jesus, that He Who had begun a good work in you, will perfect it unto the day of Christ Jesus. As it is meet for me to think this for you all, for that I have you in my bands, and in the defence and confirmation of the Gospel you are all partakers of my joy. For God is my witness, how I long after you in the bowels of Jesus Christ.

And this I pray, that your charity may more and more abound in knowledge and in all understanding, that you may approve the better things, that you may be sincere and without offence unto the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of justice, through Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.
