a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the Sunday Holy Mass celebration. Today we celebrate the 20th Sunday in the Ordinary Time, Year B. The Gospel story tells us one of the most essential teachings of Christ: the mystery of the Blessed Sacrament. Christ so loved us that He gave us His own life—His Body and Blood—for our food in order that we who partake of this divine meal may have everlasting life.
In this Holy Mass, we are invited to approach the heavenly Table to receive the bread of life and the chalice of salvation so as to share in the life of Christ, our lord and Savior.
Please all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading Prv 9:1-6
The Book of Proverbs foretells God’s plan of providing food to His people so that they may not only live healthy but also become wise.
- Second Reading Eph 5:15-20
Saint Paul urges Christians to give up the old and sinful way of life and put on the new life filled with blessings of the Holy Spirit.
