A reading from the letter of Saint Paul to the Romans

Brothers and Sisters:

Those who are led by the Spirit of God
  are children of God.
For you did not receive a spirit of slavery
  to fall back into fear,
  but you received a spirit of adoption,
  through which we cry, “Abba, Father!”
The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit
  that we are children of God,
  and if children, then heirs,
  heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ,
  if only we suffer with him
  so that we may also be glorified with him.
I consider that the sufferings of this present time
  are as nothing compared with the glory to be revealed for us.
For creation awaits with eager expectation
  the revelation of the children of God;
for creation was made subject to futility,
  not of its own accord
  but because of the one who subjected it,
  in hope that creation itself would be set free
  from slavery to corruption
  and share in the glorious freedom of the children of God.
We know that all creation is groaning
  in labor pains even until now;
and not only that, but we ourselves,
  who have the firstfruits of the Spirit,
  we also groan within ourselves
  as we wait for adoption, the redemption of our bodies.

The word of the Lord.
