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 Fourteenth Sunday in the Ordinary Time, Year C.
The message of God’s Word invites each and one of us to be ready for the mission of preaching the Good News of salvation brought to the world by Christ, our Lord. We should accomplish our work with humility and without personal interest. It is the Lord, the Master of the harvest, Who will repay the workers beyond their expectation.
We pray to the Lord for the willingness to take part in the building of God’s Kingdom through the proclamation of the Good News of Divine Mercy.
Kindly all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading: Is 66:10-14c
God’s love of His people was described by the Prophet Isaiah as that of a mother who cares for her children. It seems that God prefers being known as Divine Mercy to Divine Justice.
- Second Reading: Gal 6:14-18
Saint Paul urges Christians to find the foundation for their glory in the cross of Christ, our Lord and Savior. They should not allow themselves to boast in false pride.
