A Reading from St. John 3: 2-1
You must see what great love
the Father has lavished on us
by letting us be called God’s children
which is what we are!
The reason why the world
does not acknowledge us is
that it did not acknowledge Him.
My dear friends, we are already God’s children,
but what we shall be in the future
has not yet been revealed.
We are well aware that when
He appears we shall be like Him,
because we shall see Him as He really is.
