a) To The Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the Sunday Holy Mass celebration.
Today, we celebrate the seventh Sunday in the Ordinary Time, Year C.
The message of God’s Word challenges us Christians to embrace the new way of life built on Christian moral values which can be summarized as thus: love of God becomes visible in love of neighbor. Love is more credible with compassion and forgiveness.
Let us pray in this Holy Mass for the blessing of charity with which we Christians can bear true witness to the Gospel of God’s merciful love.
Please all stand for the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
