Ephesians 3; 14- 21

3:14 By reason of this grace, I bend my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
3:15 from whom all paternity in heaven and on earth takes its name.
3:16 And I ask him to grant to you to be strengthened in virtue by his Spirit, in accord with the wealth of his glory, in the inner man,
3:17 so that Christ may live in your hearts through a faith rooted in, and founded on, charity.
3:18 So may you be able to embrace, with all the saints, what is the width and length and height and depth
3:19 of the charity of Christ, and even be able to know that which surpasses all knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
3:20 Now to him who is able to do all things, more abundantly than we could ever ask or understand, by means of the virtue which is at work in us:
3:21 to him be glory, in the Church and in Christ Jesus, throughout every generation, forever and ever. Amen.

Luke 12: 49- 53

12:49 I have come to cast a fire upon the earth. And what should I desire, except that it may be kindled?
12:50 And I have a baptism, with which I am to be baptized. And how I am constrained, even until it may be accomplished!
12:51 Do you think that I have come to give peace to the earth? No, I tell you, but division.
12:52 For from this time on, there will be five in one house: divided as three against two, and as two against three.
12:53 A father will be divided against a son, and a son against his father; a mother against a daughter and a daughter against a mother; a mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.”
