a) To The Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the Sunday Holy Mass celebration. This Sunday we celebrate the solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. We worship the real presence of Christ in the Sacrament of the Eucharist and we are profoundly grateful to our Lord and Savior for giving us His Body and Blood to be our food for eternal life.
When we receive the Body and Blood of Christ, we are united with Him and with one another, so that, in the words of Saint Paul, it is no longer we who live but it is Christ Who lives in us.
Please all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To The Readings
- First Reading: Gn 14:18-20
In the Old Testament, the Priest Melchizedek offered God bread and wine. In the New Testament, Christ offered God His own life for the forgiveness of the sins of humankind.
- Second Reading: 1 Cor 11:23-26
In tune with the teaching of the Gospel, Saint Paul emphasizes the truth that Christ founded the Sacrament of the Eucharist in which He allows us to share in His own life, suffering, death and resurrection.
