"Strive to things above, where are Christ"
Reading from the Letter of Paul to the Colossians
If raised with Christ,
aspire to things above,
where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.
Afeiçoai yourselves to the things above, not on earthly.
For you have died
and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
When Christ who is your life, appears,
ye shall ye also appear with Him in glory.
Or 1 Corinthians 5: 6b-8
"Be you clean the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump"
Reading First Letter of Paul to the Corinthians
Know ye not that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?
Purify yourselves of the old yeast,
in order to be a new lump,
and ye are unleavened.
Christ, our Passover lamb was sacrificed.
not with old yeast nor with the leaven of malice,
but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
Word of the Lord.
