Second Reading for 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time – Year A – Daily Catholic Mass Reading
Brothers and sisters:
Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me life is Christ, and death is gain.
If I go on living in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me.
And I do not know which I shall choose. I am caught between the two.
I long to depart this life and be with Christ, for that is far better. Yet that I remain in the flesh is more necessary for your benefit.
Only, conduct yourselves in a way worthy of the gospel of Christ.
