Twenty-Seventh Sunday of the Year (C)
Reading 2, Second Timothy 1:6-8, 13-14
6 That is why I am reminding you now to fan into a flame the gift of God that you possess through the laying on of my hands.
7 God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but the Spirit of power and love and self-control.
8 So you are never to be ashamed of witnessing to our Lord, or ashamed of me for being his prisoner; but share in my hardships for the sake of the gospel, relying on the power of God
13 Keep as your pattern the sound teaching you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.
14 With the help of the Holy Spirit who dwells in us, look after that precious thing given in trust.
