Saint(s) of the day : St Eusebius (Hawshab), Confessor

Reading


Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 16,20-24.
Very truly, I tell you, you will weep and mourn, but the world will rejoice; you will have pain, but your pain will turn into joy.
When a woman is in labour, she has pain, because her hour has come. But when her child is born, she no longer remembers the anguish because of the joy of having brought a human being into the world.
So you have pain now; but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.
On that day you will ask nothing of me. Very truly, I tell you, if you ask anything of the Father in my name, he will give it to you.
Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete.
