Second Sunday of Lent A (March 16, 2014)

A.    Introduction
a)     To The Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Good morning!
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the celebration of Sunday Holy Mass.  As we celebrate today the Second Sunday of Lent, Year A, the Readings of God’s Word reminds us of our calling to struggle for holiness.
In this Sunday’s Gospel, Our Lord Jesus Christ brought the three disciples: Peter, James and John, up to a high mountain where He showed them His glory. 
We are invited to join in the journey to see one day the glory of God’s Kingdom.
Please all stand to sing the entrance hymn.   

b)    To The Readings
-          First Reading Gn 12:1-4a:
The Patriarch Abraham was enjoying a comfortable life in his country when the Lord God called him.  He left everything behind and following God’s instructions, went to settle in a place where God promised him blessings upon blessings.      
-          Second Reading 2 Tim 1:8b-10   
Saint Paul tells his disciple Timothy the truth that man’s calling to eternal life is based not on human worthiness but on God’s loving design in Christ Jesus.
