a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for our Sunday Holy Mass celebration. This Sunday we celebrate the solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
This most sacred Sacrament reminds us of so great a love that God the Father has showed us through the sacrifice of God the Son Who gave us His own life as food for eternal life. Also it is by establishing this celebration of the Eucharist or Holy Mass that Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior has fulfilled His promise that He will stay with us to the end of age.
Let us offer this Holy Mass with profound gratitude for God love, strong faith in the real presence of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior in the Sacrament of His Body and Blood, and exceptional love of this most sacred Sacrament.
Please all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To The Readings
- First Reading Ex 24:3-8
The great prophet Moses took the blood of the bull of which one half was splashed on the altar and the other half sprinkled on the people of Israel to establish the covenant between God and His Chosen People. That rite of the Old Testament was seen the preparation for the New Testament covenant founded in the Blood of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
- Second Reading Heb 9:11-15
Saint Paul teaches us Christians the truth that the Blood of Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior is the most perfect sacrifice of the New Testament sin offering that washes away evil consequences from our souls so as for us to be worthy worshippers of the Almighty God.
