a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
The Lord God almighty and invisible has come into the world in our human nature so that, through all good things which Our Lord Jesus Christ has taught and done—His suffering and death on the cross in particular—we can see His merciful face, hear His loving voice and feel His caring hands in our life amidst many forms of trial and crisis.
We pray hard in the Holy Mass for stronger confidence in God’s love and mercy for all peoples and commit ourselves to being witnesses to His saving power.
Please all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading: Is 60: 1-6
How great and joyful is the scene of all peoples from all nations gather in the House of God to worship Him with gifts of faith and love.
- Second Reading: Eph 3: 2-3a. 5-6
In the life, teaching and healing mission of our Lord Jesus Christ, the long-awaited salvation plan promised by God the Father has come true.
