a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the Sunday Holy Mass celebration. Today we celebrate the 25th Sunday in the ordinary Time, Year B.
The Gospel message for this Sunday teaches us the truth that it is not by exercising ruling power but rather by dedicating one’s life to the service of God and people that a person becomes great.
We pray hard in this Holy Mass for the blessing of being helpful both to the kingdom of heaven and the kingdom of earth.
We also pray for our friends Nguyễn Thị Quỳnh Anh and Samuel Harvath as they receive the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony to start the building of a Christian family today. May Christ our Lord unite them forever in love, happiness and faithfulness.
Kindly all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading Wis 2:12.17-20:
Good people are the target of all forms of injustice by the wicked. But the just by relying on the Lord God as the strong foundation for their life will never give up being kind and compassionate to others.
- Second Reading Jas 3:16-4:3:
The roots of evil actions according to Saint James can be found in a person’s heart full of sinful passions. Only by uprooting those obstacles will people enjoy peaceful and happy life.
