a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the Sunday Holy Mass celebration. The message of the Readings from the Holy Bible for this Sunday tells us how Our Lord Jesus Christ was treading towns and cities of Israel preaching the Good News of salvation. We need to repent of our wrongdoings to be worthy of God’s Kingdom.
Please all stand to join in the singing of the entrance hymn.
b) To the Readings
- First Reading Is 8:23-9:3
Without the light of divine wisdom, people walk in the darkness of error, fear and death. Once brought to the radiance of God’s saving truth they find the way to life ever happy and everlasting.
- Second Reading 1 Cor 7:10-13
Unity among Christians has been so vital for the Church founded by Christ since the early times that Saint Paul urges us to fight against all forms of division no matter what reason they could have to justify their failure in living up to the Lord’s burning desire that His disciples be one as the Father and the Son are one.
