Today's Epistle reading [Ephesians 6.10-17]:

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.  Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.  Therefore take the whole armor of God, that you maybe able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  Stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the equipment of the gospel of peace; above all taking the shield of faith, with which you can quench all the flaming darts of the evil one.  And take the helmit of salvation. and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

The Gospel reading for today [Luke 17.12-19]:


And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance and lifted up their voices and said, "Jesus, Master, have mercy on us."  When he saw them he said to them, "Go and show yourselves to the priests."  And as they went they were cleansed.  Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; and he fell on his face at Jesus' feet, giving him thanks.  Now he was a Samaritan.  Then said Jesus, "Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine?  Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?"  And he said to him, "Rise and go your way, your faith has made you well."
