31st Sunday in Ordinary Time C: 2nd Reading

2 Thessalonians 1:11 - 2:2

Brothers and sisters:
We always pray for you,
   that our God may make you worthy of his calling
   and powerfully bring to fulfillment every good purpose
   and every effort of faith,
   that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you,
   and you in him,
   in accord with the grace of our God and Lord Jesus Christ.

We ask you, brothers and sisters,
   with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ
   and our assembling with him,
   not to be shaken out of your minds suddenly, or to be alarmed
   either by a “spirit,” or by an oral statement,
   or by a letter allegedly from us
   to the effect that the day of the Lord is at hand.
