a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the Sunday Holy Mass service. As we celebrate the Fourth Sunday in the Ordinary Time today, the Word of God urges us to see things and people in the light of our faith in order that we are not blinded by discrimination and prejudice.
We pray hard in this Holy Mass for God’s gift of peace and justice, love and compassion in the relationship between individuals, families, and communities.
Kindly all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading: Jer 1:4-5.17-19
The Prophet Jeremiah was called by the Lord God to speak out the saving truth to sinful people including those in top power in both the royal palace and the holy temple. To the frightened messenger facing a hostile audience’s reactions, the Lord God promised His mighty support.
- Second Reading: 1 Cor 12:31-13:13
For Saint Paul, charity or Christian love means everything in whatever we do. Without love the Christian community would be reduced to lifeless body.
