6th Week In Ordinary Time, Friday
Then Jesus called the people and his disciples, and said, “If you want to follow me, deny yourself; take up your cross and follow me. For if you choose to save your life, you will lose it; and if you lose your life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel you will save it.
What good is it, to gain the whole world, while destroying your soul? There is nothing more precious than your soul.
I tell you, if anyone is ashamed of me and of my words, among this adulterous and sinful people, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him, when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”
And he went on to say, “Truly I tell you, there are some here who will not die before they see the kingdom of God coming with power.”
