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 join the universal Church in prayer, praise and thanksgiving offered to the Lord God for His great love to all of us, His children.
This Sunday’s Gospel urges us to be determined in keeping God’s commandments and living up to our Christian values. By so doing we should be courageous enough to detach ourselves from even someone or something very close to our heart.
We pray in this Holy Mass for the blessing of being faithful and persevering to our faith in God, our loving and caring Father.
Please all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading Nm 11:25-29
We are taught to be open-minded and ready to collaborate with others in our service of God so as to avoid all forms of monopoly in religious matters.
- Second Reading Jas 5:1-6
Saint James strongly condemns those who greedily amass the resources for living designated by God for all people to the detriment of the less fortunate.
