a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the Sunday Holy Mass celebration. We celebrate the 33rd Sunday today with profound gratitude to the Lord God for so many blessings we have received from His great love.
The end of the 2015 liturgical year is coming nearer. The Gospel reports what our Lord told the audience about being aware of the signs of the times. That means their readiness for the second coming of Christ.
We pray hard in this Holy Mass for the blessing of being awake in hope, strong in faith, and active in charity, while waiting for the Lord.
Kindly all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading: Dn 12:1-3
The Prophet Daniel depicts the Last Judgment as the day of vindication when the just will live forever and the wicked shall be an everlasting horror and disgrace.
- Second Reading: Heb 10:11-14.18
Christ having accomplished His sacrifice for sins went to His glorious throne at the right hand of God the Father where He still intercedes for our causes.
