from today’s Office of Readings:
We felt within ourselves that we had received the sentence of death, so that we might not trust in ourselves but in God, who raises the dead; from so great a danger did her deliver us, and does deliver us; we hope in him, for he will deliver us again.
To know you, O God, is to reach holiness;
to acknowledge your power is the source of immortality.
This is eternal life:
to know you, the one true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.
