a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the Sunday Holy Mass celebration. The message of God’s Word for the XXVIII Sunday today tells us this truth that gratefulness not only makes us fully human in our social relationships, but also helps us to deserve God’s greater favors in our spiritual life.
A grateful heart really brings us closer to God the very source of love and mercy.
Please all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
