a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for our Sunday Holy Mass celebration. Today, we celebrate the Thirteen Sunday in the Ordinary Time, Year C.
The Lord God has repeatedly called us to work for the building of the Kingdom of God. Each and one of us has a mission assigned by the Lord. We cannot accomplish our duty as both individual and community unless we cling to the Lord and ask Him for assistance, guidance and wisdom.
We pray hard in this Holy Mass for all of us to become witnesses of God’s love and mercy.
Kindly all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading: 1 Kgs 19:16b. 19-21
The Lord God tells Prophet Elijah to anoint Elisha as prophet to continue his mission of proclaiming divine mercy for repentant sinners.
- Second Reading: Gal 5:1. 13-18
Saint Paul reminds Christians of the grace of adoption with which they are made children of God. In thankfulness for this merciful love, they have to fight the forces of darkness and remain a light for the world with regard to equality, charity and unity.
