And this is Eternal Life...
Today’s second Gospel Reading, prescribed for the commemoration of the Holy Fathers of the 7th Ecumenical Council, is from the Gospel of St. John:
Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You, as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him. And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
