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. The Holy Mass which we celebrate this Sunday is offered in honor of the Most Holy Trinity: God the Father, Creator of all, God the Son, Lord and Savior of humanity, and God the Holy Spirit, Source of New Life in Christ.
As Christians were born to be God’s children through the Sacrament of Baptism in the Holy Names of the Three Divine Persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Christianity is characterized with the faith in and the worship of the Most Holy Trinity.
We pray fervently in this Holy Mass for the glory of the Triune God to shine brightly in our lives of loving and serving God and neighbor.
Please all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading Ex 34:4b-6.8-9
The Lord God appeared to the great Prophet Moses in the time of Exodus and introduced Himself as the loving and merciful God “slow to anger and rich in kindness and fidelity.” This one day would inspire Saint John in the New Testament to confidently write that “God is love.”
- Second Reading 2 Cor 13:11-13
For Saint Paul, the Most Holy Trinity is the foundation, inspiration and motivation of the Church’s life and mission. Sacred Liturgy on earth is the rehearsal and preparation for heavenly worship of the Triune God.
