Today at the Liturgy of Office of Readings the Second alternative reading was from 1st letter of Saint Peter Chapter 3
1 to 18. We will just quote some of it from the translation by Eugene Peterson from the Bible called
The Message, which we love.
Be good wives to your husbands, responsive to their needs. There are husbands who, indifferent as they are to any words about God, will be captivated by your life of holy beauty. What matters is not your outer appearance -the styling of your hair, the jewelry you wear, the cut of your clothes-but your inner disposition.
verse 3 the same goes for your husbands:Be good husbands to your wives. Honor them delight in them. - In the new life of grace, your are equals. Treat your wives,then , as equals.
