I am writing to you who are now united/tied-together with Cristo, you who have now been separated out by God as his people now, who truly believe/obey this Cristo. I am praying that hopefully with you always is the grace/mercy and peace of mind/inner-being which God our Father gives.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
