Memorial of Saints Andrew Kim Tae-gon, Priest, and Paul Chong Ha-sang, and Companions, Martyrs

Reading 1 1 Tm 6:2c-12

and has a morbid disposition for arguments and verbal disputes.

Therefore, a bishop must be irreproachable,

He must manage his own household well,
keeping his children under control with perfect dignity;

Reading 1 1 Tm 2:1-8

Beloved:
First of all, I ask that supplications, prayers,

for kings and for all in authority,
that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life
in all devotion and dignity.
This is good and pleasing to God our savior,
who wills everyone to be saved
and to come to knowledge of the truth.
