First Reading for St. Ambrose, Bishop and Doctor

Ephesians 3:8-12

Summary: As the least of the saints, I have been tasked with revealing to the Gentiles the vast riches of Christ. This mystery, once hidden, is now unveiled through the church to demonstrate God's wisdom. In Christ, we confidently and freely approach God, fulfilling His eternal purpose.

Preaching the Mystery

Brothers and sisters:

To me, the very least of all the holy ones, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the inscrutable riches of Christ, and to bring to light for all what is the plan of the mystery hidden from ages past in God who created all things, so that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the Church to the principalities and authorities in the heavens.

This was according to the eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness of speech and confidence of access through faith in him.
