Second Reading for the Common of Virgins

2 Corinthians 10:17-11:2

Summary: Paul encourages believers to find their pride in the Lord, not in self-commendation. Expressing a divine jealousy, he aims to present them as pure to Christ, seeking their indulgence in his protective concern.

Pride in the Lord

Brothers and sisters:

Whoever boasts, should boast in the Lord. For it is not the one who recommends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord recommends.

If only you would put up with a little foolishness from me! Please put up with me. For I am jealous of you with the jealousy of God, since I betrothed you to one husband to present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
