A.Introductiona)To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the Sunday Holy Mass celebration. This Fifth Sunday of Lent is the last of the Lenten Season after which will come Palm Sunday and the Holy Week. The Gospel story of this week celebration shows us how compassionate and merciful our Lord Jesus Christ was in dealing with sinners. What Jesus said to the sinful woman, “Neither do I condemn you. Go, and from now on do not sin anymore” is also what God the Father would say to us every time we go back to Him asking for forgiveness.
We pray hard in this Holy Mass for the grace of repentance of our sins and of going back to God, our loving and forgiving Father.
Kindly all stand for the entrance hymn.
b)To the Readings
-First Reading: Is 43:16-21
-Second Reading: Phil 3:8-14
Saint Paul was convinced that salvation should be found not in any human act of righteousness but in our Lord Jesus alone in Whom we unfailingly put our faith, love and loyalty.
