a. To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the Sunday Holy Mass celebration. As we celebrate the twenty-seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A, today, the Word of God sends us the message that shows, on the one hand, how Divine Mercy and Love prevails over our human unfaithfulness. On the other, we should take full responsibility for what we have done for the building of God’s Kingdom.
We pray hard in this Holy Mass for the blessing of being honest and grateful children of God, our heavenly Father.
Our Holy Mass presider today is Reverend Fr. John Nguyen Thien Minh, O.P.
Kindly all stand for the entrance hymn.
b. To the Readings
- First Reading: Is 5:1-7
God’s love and care for His People can be compared with the love and care of a farmer who looks after his crops. God always expects good harvest from His faithful believers.
- Second Reading: Phil 4:6-9
Saint Paul urges Christians to look for all that is true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, and gracious in order to be worthy of God’s peace.
