First Reading for St. John Bosco

Philippians 4:4-9

Summary: Rejoice in the Lord always. Present all worries to Him through prayer with gratitude. Embrace peace, focusing on the good and virtuous. Follow these teachings and find God's peace.

Rejoice and Trust in the Lord

Brothers and sisters:

Rejoice in the Lord always. I shall say it again: rejoice!

Your kindness should be known to all.

The Lord is near.

Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Keep on doing what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me. Then the God of peace will be with you.
