a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the Sunday Holy Mass celebration. On this last Sunday of the Liturgical Year 2015, we solemnly offer this Holy Mass in honor of Christ, King of the Universe.
Christ came into the world to conquer death and restore life for a fallen humanity. We the new people freed from slavery to sin are deeply grateful to our Savior and King Who by his blood cleansed us and gave us new life in Him.
We pray hard in this Holy Mass for the blessing of deserving His faithful people by working ever dedicatedly for His Kingdom of love and peace.
Kindly all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading: Dn 7:13-14:
The Prophet Daniel saw a spectacular scene of enthronement granted to the Son of Man. The event is in reality the preparation for the final victory over the world by our Lord and Savior.
- Second Reading: Rv 1:5-8:
The Book of Revelation shows us how all peoples of the earth will one day recognize the saving power of Christ over the whole world. Salvation includes those having conducted a life hostile to the Gospel values as far as they repent of their wrongdoings.
