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

FIRST READING:

Jer. 1: 4-5, 17-19 "A prophet to the nations I have appointed you ." The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah. Before his birth he had been consecrated to God, to be a prophet to the nations. They will fight against him but shall not succeed.

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:

Ps. 71 "I will sing of your salvation."

SECOND READING:

1 Cor. 12: 31 - 13: 13 "So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love."

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:

Lk. 4: 18-19 "The Lord sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor, and to proclaim liberty to captives."

GOSPEL:

Lk. 4: 21-30 "Jesus, like Elijah and Elisha was not sent only to the Jews." Jesus spoke in the synagogue that the scriptures were fulfilled in the peopleÔs midst. They were astonished and outraged and attempted to throw him down a cliff but he slipped through the crowd.

SCRIPTURAL TOPICS: love, universality, Christ's presence, prophecy

FOCUS: "The Lord sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor, and to proclaim liberty to captives."

REFLECTION: "Let the meaning of your words shine forth, let understanding blaze out from them. Let no word escape your lips in vain or be uttered without deep meaning." St. Ambrose

Invisible in his own nature he became visible in ours. Beyond our grasp, he chose to come within our grasp. Existing before time began, he began to exist at a moment in time. Incapable of suffering as God, he did not refuse to be man, capable of suffering. Immortal, he chose to be subject to the laws of death.

Leo the Great

"I will sing

of your

salvation."

"The Holy Spirit teaches true prayer. No one, until he receives the Spirit, can pray in a manner truly pleasing to God. This is so, because anyone who begins to pray without having the Holy Spirit in him, finds that his soul is dispersed in all directions, turning to and fro, so that he cannot fix his thoughts on one thing. Moreover he does not properly know either himself, or his own needs; he does not know how or what to ask from God; he does not even know who God is. But a man with the Holy Spirit dwelling in him knows God and sees that He is his Father. He knows how to approach Him, how to ask and what to ask for. His thoughts in prayer are orderly, pure, and directed to one object alone:God; and by his prayer he is truly able to do everything."

Metropolitan, Innocent of Moscow

APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: Introduce the liturgy by conveying that as followers of Christ we are to live with the confidence of GodÕs sacred presence in our lives, thus inspiring us and others to do the same.

Penitential rite: Third form

Sample General Intercessions:

Introduction: My sisters and brothers, God fulfills the scriptures in the person of Jesus. Let us pray to God who opens our eyes so that we might see and hear:

¥ For all that have dedicated themselves to God, that their hearts stay warm in a cold world;

¥ For peace among nations, that the world may be rid of violence and oppression;

¥ For the aged who suffer from loneliness and neglect, that we sustain them by our love;

¥ For women everywhere who suffer injustice, that the church lead the way towards changing sexist oppression;

¥ For all of us gathered here; that God will teach us to use wisely the gifts we receive, to make the most of lifeÕs eternal blessing.

Introduce the breaking of the bread by stating that through the Eucharist the glad tidings reaches our hearts and souls.

Preface for Sundays in O.T.: First

Prayers over the People: Eighteenth

or twenty-fourth

Faith Formation

We are one body in Christ bound in our attention to God in the world of charity. The prophets were rejected and Jesus was pulled from the synagogue. People have a hard time believing in themselves and those around them. Do we respect ourselves? If we cannot accept ourselves we cannot accept others in our midst. Unfortunately we often put our hope for help in something far away, removed from us. TodayÕs proclamation from the gospel is that God is near.

ChildrenÕs Liturgy

of the Word

Talk about the concept that some things last longer than others. Items of high quality often last longer than cheap objects. St. Therese of Liseaux said that if we want to have a rich life we must pay a high price.

¥ What does the second reading say about lasting things?

Three things last: faith, hope and love. By loving we pay for a good life. By following our hearts we experience life as something that is rich.
