FOURTH SUNDAY IN ADVENT – EPISTLE: Romans 16:25-27

God is able to make you strong, just as the Good News says. It is the message about Jesus Christ and his plan for you Gentiles, a plan kept secret from the beginning of time.  26But now, as the prophets fore-told and as the eternal God has commanded, this message is made known to all Gentiles everywhere, so that they might believe and obey Christ.  27To God, who alone is wise, be the glory forever through Jesus Christ.  Amen.
