a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the celebration of our Sunday Holy Mass. As we observe the worship of God on the XXVIII Sunday, the Gospel tells us to do our best to accomplish our assignment by working for His kingdom, in order to be worthy of His trust in our goodwill.
Those who for different reasons refuse to take part in the earthly gathering will be unable to share in the heavenly celebration.
Kindly all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading Is 25:6-10 a
The Lord God always shows His kindness to humans by granting them countless blessings. However, seldom do they realize God’s love and care. Concerns for earthly interest and glory have turned them disrespectful and ungrateful children.
- Second Reading Phil 4:12-14.19-20
Full trust in God’s love and care becomes the ground for Christians to stand firm either in fortune or misfortune, confident that they would serve God’s will not only in shining days but also in stormy and dark moments of their life.
