a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the Sunday Holy Mass celebration. Today we celebrate the Eleventh Sunday in the Ordinary Time with the dominant theme on the greatest of divine mercy over human sinfulness.
We pray hard in this Holy Mass for all of us to be always confident in God’s merciful love as the life buoy to which we cling for our survival in time of crisis.
Please all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading: 2 Sm 12:7-10.13
Abundantly showered with God’s blessings though, King David failed to live a life worthy of divine love and care. On the contrary, he committed grave crimes and seriously offended God. However, his repentance earned him God’s mercy and forgiveness.
- Second Reading: Gal 2: 16, 19-21
Saint Paul knew well how to live up to his determination to serve Christ more faithfully than ever in response to the Lord’s merciful love for him who was once the very dangerous persecutor of Christianity.
