a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the Sunday Holy Mass celebration. As we are coming to the end of the liturgical year, the message of God’s Word reminds us of the true meaning of our life and so it helps us to adjust our concept on material needs and our use of properties.
Too much dependence on money and power may cause us to run the danger of losing not only good relationship with our friends but also eternal happiness with God.
Let’s us pray in this Holy Mass for the gift of wisdom in rightly dealing with earthly comforts so as to obtain heavenly reward.
Kindly all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings

The Lord God, through the Prophet Amos, warns those who abuse power and comfort of destructive consequences occurring not only to themselves but also to the whole people.
- Second Reading: 1 Tim 6:11-16
Saint Paul admonishes his disciple, Bishop Timothy, to conduct an exemplary life as all Christians should in profound gratitude to the Lord God for so many blessings
