19th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B: 2nd Reading

Ephesians 4:30 - 5:2

Brothers and sisters:
   Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God,
   with which you were sealed for the day of redemption.
All bitterness, fury, anger, shouting, and reviling
   must be removed from you, along with all malice.
And be kind to one another, compassionate,
   forgiving one another as God has forgiven you in Christ.

So be imitators of God, as beloved children, and live in love,
   as Christ loved us and handed himself over for us
   as a sacrificial offering to God for a fragrant aroma.
