ST PETER & ST PAUL, APOSTLES – Epistle: 2 Timothy 4:6-8

My life is coming to an end, and it is now time for me to be poured out as a sacrifice to God.   I have fought the good fight; I have completed the race.  I have kept the faith.  The prize that shows I have God’s approval is now waiting for me.  The Lord, who is a fair judge, will give me that prize on that day.  He will give it not only to me but also to everyone who is eagerly waiting for him to come again.
