Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time - Year C (July 14, 2019)

A. Introduction

a) To the Holy Mass

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

Good morning!

Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the Sunday Holy Mass celebration. As we celebrate the Fifteenth Sunday in the Ordinary Time today, the message of God’s Word comes to us bringing the Good News of Divine Merciful Love and telling us how to put into practice the new commandment of love by Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Christian love asks each and one of us to quickly respond to the needs of the poor, the suffering and the oppressed as if they were our blood sisters and brothers, no matter who they are with regard to social, political and religious aspects.

We pray hard in this Holy Mass to the God of all blessings for a true, sincere and unconditional love of our neighbors, keeping in our mind what Christ our Lord will tell us at the Last Judgment, “Whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me”. (Mt 25:40)

Please all stand for the entrance hymn.

b) To the Readings

- First Reading: Dt 30:10-14

The Great Prophet Moses tells the people of Israel to observe God’s Commandments with love and happiness for fulfilling the divine law is not as difficult as going up to the sky or crossing the sea. On the contrary, the observance of God’s law is feasible to all of us because it is inscribed in our heart.

- Second Reading: Col 1:15-20

God so loved us that he had decreed from eternity that salvation be brought about by Christ Jesus, His Only Son, our Lord and Savior. In Christ, all of us, sinners, have been reconciled to God, and are sent as peacemakers to people divided by forces of evil.
