a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the celebration of the Sixth Sunday of Easter, Cycle B.
Saint John gave the definition of God’s nature that goes “God is love.” As the result of this truth, love means an essential and fundamental part of Christianity. Christians are bound with the New Commandment of love, to bear witness to how God loved them when He sent Christ Jesus, His Only Son, Who suffered, died and rose back to life, in order to grant humanity forgiveness and salvation.
We pray to Christ for the grace of profound gratitude with which we Christians build a world full of love, compassion and peace.
Please all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading Acts 10:25-26.34-35.44-48
God’s love knows no limit when He stretches His saving power to peoples living beyond the boundary of Israel.
- Second Reading 1 Jn 4:7-10
God loved us first and sent His Son to us in order to enable us to love Him. For this reason, those who love their neighbor are born by God and know God.
