First Reading - Eph 5:21-33

21Being subject one to another, in the fear of Christ.
22Let women be subject to their husbands, as to the Lord:
23Because the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ is the head of the church. He is the saviour of his body.
24Therefore as the church is subject to Christ, so also let the wives be to their husbands in all things.
25Husbands, love your wives, as Christ also loved the church, and delivered himself up for it:
26That he might sanctify it, cleansing it by the laver of water in the word of life:
27That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle, or any; such thing; but that it should be holy, and without blemish.
28So also ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife, loveth himself.
29For no man ever hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, as also Christ doth the church:
30Because we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
31For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife, and they shall be two in one flesh.
32This is a great sacrament; but I speak in Christ and in the church.
33Nevertheless let every one of you in particular love his wife as himself: and let the wife fear her husband.
