John wrote his letter to whom he called the elect lady and her children.  Unfortunately, we do not have enough evidence to say whether this was a literal woman, possibly Mary, or simply a church, so please forgive me for not being able to enlighten you any further on the issue.  Now, what does John wish for God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ to give these recipients in his greeting?

-Grace, mercy and peace-

-Grace, mercy and peace in truth and love-

-Grace, peace and love in truth-

-Grace, love and truth-
