Words from the Word: Now I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you be in agreement and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same purpose.
– 1 Corinthians 1:10, NRSV
Audio Lectio: Pray the scripture using audio lectio from Matthew 4:12-23.
