a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Church for the celebration of the XXIV Sunday Holy Mass.
The topic from the Readings of this Sunday is that we Christians should become witnesses to God’s merciful love in our relationships. Only by forgiving one other’s wrongdoings without condition and without limit can we deserve God’s forgiveness.
Let us pray hard in this Holy Mass for the blessing of being willing to forgive those who hurt us.
Please all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading: Sir 27:30-28:7
The Book of Sirach teaches us to be merciful and forgiving in order to deserve God’s mercy and forgiveness.
- Second Reading: Rom 14:7-9
Saint Paul in his Letter to the Romans admonishes Christians to consider as the reason for their existence on earth to live and die for Jesus Christ the Lord and Savior alone.
