a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the celebration of the Sixth Sunday of Easter, Year A.
Through His Suffering, Death, and Resurrection, Christ reconciled us sinners to God the Father. The fruit of reconciliation by Christ has grown greater when we are brought to the communion in the divine life if we are united with Christ by keeping His Commandment of charity.
We pray in this Holy Mass for the blessing of understanding the Gospel message and of being able to put it into practice in our everyday life.
Kindly all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading Acts 8:5-8.14-17
The power of the Risen Lord enables believers who are just simple and ordinary people to do great things beyond human understanding, such as the conversion of well-known officials among the Gentiles.
- Second Reading 1 Pt 3:15-18
Being witnesses to what they believe, Christians should be able to offer right and timely solutions to the questions frequently asked by their contemporaries with regard to their faith and hope.
