a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for our Sunday Holy Mass celebration.
As we listen to the Lord’s Gospel this Sunday, He tells us, on the one hand, to take good care of the seed of His teaching, in order to produce an abundant harvest. On the other, we are encouraged to fight against all forms of evil, In order to prepare a proper ground for the growth of the good seed.
In this Holy Mass, we pray to the Lord Who is merciful to bless us with the joy to work for the building of His Kingdom on earth.
Please all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading Wis 12:13.16-19
The Lord God depicted by the Book of Wisdom is the God of kindness and mercy, Who loves and cares for all, and Who wants those faithful to Him to be kind and just.
- Second Reading Rom 8:26-27
Christians are essentially saved from sin and given the dignity of adoptive children of God. However, they have to strive for the accomplishment of their calling in accordance with the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit.
