June 21, 2004 Tweflth Sunday in Ordinary Time: Cycle C
July 25, 2004 Seventeeth Sunday in Ordinary Time

FIRST READING:

Is. 52: 7-10 "All the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God." The Lord comes bringing happiness and heralding peace. Shout for joy...

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:

Ps. 98 "All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God."

SECOND READING:

Heb. 1: 1-6 "In our own time, God speaks to us through his Son."

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:

"A holy day has dawned upon us. Come, you nations, adore the Lord. Today a great light has come upon the earth."

GOSPEL:

Jn. 1: 1-18 "The Word was made flesh, he lived among us, and we saw his glory."

 

FOCUS: "Today a great light has come upon the earth."

APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: Songs, litanies and invitations to prayer should focus on the living Word of God. A procession with and incensing of the Holy Books would demonstrate our devotion to the Word and its significance in our lives. The use of handbells during the Gloria and memorial acclamation echo the sound of a universe rejoicing.

Sprinkling rite

or

Penitential rite: Third form with third set of sample invocations.

Preface: See second Christmas preface.

Eucharistic Prayer: Roman Canon with proper commemorations for the Christmas season.
