a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the celebration of the Sunday Holy Mass. We celebrate today the VIII Sunday in the Ordinary Time, Year A.
The message of the Lord God this Sunday tells us to trust in His love and care for us, His children. God loves and cares for His creation. But He loves and cares for us more than anything else.
Confident in divine goodness, we should focus more on working for God’s kingdom and let Him do the rest for us.
Please all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading Is 49:14-15
The Prophet Isaiah teaches us that God loves us more than parents love their children. Even though a mother could have abandoned her child, God would never forsake us.
- Second Reading 1 Cor 4:1-5
For Saint Paul Christian believers should consider as the first priority living up to the Commandment of love established by Christ Our Lord, and leave making judgment to God alone.
