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 32nd Sunday in the Ordinary Time.
The topic of the Word of God for this Sunday is that the Lord God appreciates the quality more than the quantity of our service. In other words it is more meaningful how to serve than what to serve. It is the love of God and neighbor with which we are building a better home for our sisters and brothers would mean much more than all things else.
We pray hard in this Holy Mass for the blessing of working for God’s kingdom without reserve even if there is a shortage of resources on our part.
Please all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading: 1 Kgs 17:10-16
The goodness with which the poor widow of Zarephath treated the Prophet Elijah brought her a miraculous blessing that she was granted an unlimited food provision.

Christ is the true high priest Who offered once for all His life as the most efficient sacrifice for sin in order to obtain for humanity eternal happiness.
