Jesus said to them,

“Truly I tell you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes 

are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you.

For John came to you to show you the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him,

but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did.

And even after you saw this, you did not repent and believe him.


Matthew 21:31-32

Grant, O merciful God,
that your Church,

with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
