St John Fisher And St Thomas More (Gospel Reading, Matthew 24:4-13)

(You will be hated by all the nations on account of my name.)

Jesus said to his disciples,

“Take care that no one deceives you; because many will come using my name and saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will deceive many.

You will hear of wars and rumours of wars; do not be alarmed, for this is something that must happen, but the end will not be yet.

For nation will fight against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.

There will be famines and earthquakes here and there.

All this is only the beginning of the birth-pangs.

” Then they will hand you over to be tortured and put to death; and you will be hated by all nations on account of my name.

And then many will gall away; men will betray one another and hate one another.

Many false prophets will arise; they will deceive many, and with the increase of lawlessness, love in most men will grow cold; but the man who stands firm to the end will be saved.”

The Gospel of the Lord.

R.) Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
