The Letter of Saint Paul to the Ephesians    3: 2-12

3:2 Now certainly, you have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God, which has been given to me among you:
3:3 that, by means of revelation, the mystery was made known to me, just as I have written above in a few words.
3:4 Yet, by reading this closely, you might be able to understand my prudence in the mystery of Christ.
3:5 In other generations, this was unknown to the sons of men, even as it has now been revealed to his holy Apostles and Prophets in the Spirit,
3:6 so that the Gentiles would be co-heirs, and of the same body, and partners together, by his promise in Christ Jesus, through the Gospel.
3:7 Of this Gospel, I have been made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God, which has been given to me by means of the operation of his virtue.
3:8 Although I am the least of all the saints, I have been given this grace: to evangelize among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,
3:9 and to enlighten everyone concerning the dispensation of the mystery, hidden before the ages in God who created all things,
3:10 so that the manifold wisdom of God may become well-known to the principalities and powers in the heavens, through the Church,
3:11 according to that timeless purpose, which he has formed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
3:12 In him we trust, and so we approach with confidence, through his faith.
