a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the Sunday Holy Mass celebration. As we celebrate the 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time today, we listen to the Lord God telling us the truth that He is the Master of the universe and the Owner of the creation which He made out of His great love. For this reason, all things in heaven and on earth, even strong wind and violent sea, obey Him Who is their Maker.
We pray in this Holy Mass, in particular when saying the “Our Father”, for the blessing of loving obedience to God our Father in heaven, after the example of Christ, in all that we think of, say and do.
Please all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading: Job 38:1.8-11
Job, the holy man having been tested in many ways, even through suffering, injustice and misfortune, realized that the Lord God was always the supreme authority to have the last say, simply because He is the Lord of all.
- Second Reading: 2 Cor 5:14-17
For Christians, Christ is Lord and Savior because He by laying down His life for the human race has made them a new creation worthy of being adopted children of God the Alminty Father.
