|Colossians 1: 24 - 29
||Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I complete what is lacking in Christ's afflictions for the sake of his body, that is, the church,
||of which I became a minister according to the divine office which was given to me for you, to make the word of God fully known,
||the mystery hidden for ages and generations but now made manifest to his saints.
||To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
||Him we proclaim, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man mature in Christ.
||For this I toil, striving with all the energy which he mightily inspires within me.
