||always, in all my prayers, making supplication for all of you with joy,
||because of your communion in the Gospel of Christ, from the first day even until now.
||I am confident of this very thing: that he who has begun this good work in you will perfect it, unto the day of Christ Jesus.
||For God is my witness how, within the heart of Jesus Christ, I long for all of you.
||And this I pray: that your charity may abound more and more, with knowledge and with all understanding,
||so that you may be confirmed in what is better, in order that you may be sincere and without offense on the day of Christ:
||filled with the fruit of justice, through Jesus Christ, in the glory and praise of God.
