a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for our Sunday Holy Mass celebration.
The Gospel message of the Sixth Sunday of Easter in Year C tells us to keep His word in order to prove that we really love God and are, as a result of this love, worthy of God’s affection.
To keep Jesus’ word does not just mean a careful observance to small details of the Lord’s teaching, but rather it requires a full and active and willing commitment to putting His doctrine into our everyday life.
We pray hard for the Christian community to not only study God’s word but also live up to its guidance and share it with the people around us.
Please all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading: Acts 15:1-2.22-29
From the first days of its establishment, the Church has been guided and taken good care by the Holy Spirit Whom our Lord Jesus Christ sent as the principle of its life and mission. Therefore the Christian community may survive countless of dangers throughout the history of the Church in all over the world.
- Second Reading: Rev 21:10-14, 22-23
The Holy City Jerusalem in heaven symbolizes the glorious Church at the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Names of those faithful to the Lamb are inscribed on the wall of the heavenly city, and the Lamb will shine on them night and day like the bright sun.
