a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the Sunday Holy Mass celebration in the 15th Week in the Ordinary Time, Cycle B.
The Gospel story tells us how Christ sent the twelve disciples two by two to mission. They went to preach the Good News of salvation relying only on God’s love and care. This should also be the way we are sent to bear witness to our faith in Christ Who, all-powerful though, came to us as a simple human person, in order to bring us God’s priceless gift of eternal life.
Please all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading Am 7:12-15
The sharp difference between an authentic prophet and a false one lies in the fact that the former is sent by God and detached from earthly ambitions, while the latter is not at all.
- Second Reading Eph 1:3-10
We are chosen by God in Christ to be recipients of all kinds of blessing. For this reason, this is our great honor and endless joy to thank and praise God the Father forever.
