a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the Sunday Holy Mass observance. Today we celebrate the Second Sunday of Easter.
The Gospel story tells us how Saint Thomas the Apostle went through a hard conversion process to reach the true faith in Christ Jesus as the Lord and God.
We also celebrate the Divine Mercy this Sunday with grateful hearts for the great love which God the Father has showed us in Christ Jesus, His Son: “God so loved the world that He gave His Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him might not perish, but might have eternal life.”
Please all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading Acts 4:32-35
Moved by the Spirit of the Risen Lord, the first Christians overcame worldly ambitions to live up to so perfect a community life that “there was no needy person among them.”
- Second Reading 1 Jn 5:1-6
The mutual love of Christians are built on and animated by the love of God and obedience to His Commandments.
