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

FIRST READING: 1 Kings 19: 16, 19-21 "Elisha rose and followed Elijah and became his servant. The Lord told Elijah to anoint Elisha as prophet to succeed him."

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:

Ps. 16 "O Lord, it is you who are my portion."

SECOND READING:

Gal. 5: 1, 13-18 "My sisters and brothers, you were called to freedom."

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:

1 Sam. 3: 9 and Jn. 6: 69 "Speak, O Lord, your servant is listening: you have the words of eternal life."

GOSPEL: Lk. 9: 51-62

"Jesus resolutely set his face toward Jerusalem." I will follow wherever you go.

FOCUS: We have been called to a life that identifies with the poor and homeless. We are called to a road to the heavenly Jerusalem and we can not turn back to a life of indifference.

REFLECTION: "The Lord's command seems difficult and painful when he says that anyone who wishes to follow him must deny himself. But it is not really so, since he helps us to do what he commands. He fulfills his own words: 'My yoke is easy and my burden is light.' Love makes it easy to carry out whatever is difficult in his command." St. Augustine

The yoke of Christ is sweet and his burden light unto refreshment for those who submit to it; but all things alien to the teachings of the Gospel are heavy and burdensome. St. Basil

The Pillar and the Cloud

Lead, kindly Light, amid the encircling gloom

Lead Thou me on

The night is dark, and I am far from homeŠ

Lead Thou me on

Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see the distant sceneŠ

One step's enough for me.

John Henry Newman

"It was said of Abbot Agatho that for three years he carried a stone in his mouth until he learned to be silent."

The Wisdom of the Desert

"Speak, O Lord, your servant is listening: you have the words of eternal life."

"Do not judge a fornicator if you are chaste, for if you do, you are violating God's Law as much as he is. For He who said thou shalt not fornicate, also said thou shalt not judge."

The Wisdom of the Desert

APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: The word of God and the Eucharist give us the grace to move forward in life. God's grace shakes us out of our complacency and self-indulgence.

Penitential Rite: see 5C

General Intercessions-

Introduction: My sisters and brothers, we are gathered to celebrate the mystery of our salvation in Christ Jesus. Let us ask God our Father to open for all the world this fountain of life and blessing.

- For all who have dedicated themselves to the Lord, that God will help them to be faithful to their purpose.

- For peace among nations, that God may rid the world of violence, and let us serve him in freedom.

- For all those who suffer from loneliness, especially the aged, that we will sustain them by our love.

- For all of us gathered here, that God will teach us to use wisely the good things given to us, that they will lead us closer to God and to the eternal blessings he promises.

Preface: See first or second preface for Sundays in Ordinary Time

Concluding Rite-

Prayers over the People: 15th

Faith Formation

Meditation on one's death is a useful examination of our priorities and values. We would treat each moment differently if we knew the hour of our death. Beyond that, by living as though we were already dead, we are free to see God in everything and everyone.

Children's Liturgy of the Word

We are called to freedom, (2nd Reading). Devotion to God frees us from sorts of difficulties. We don't have to pretend to like someone, because we really do love all God's children. We don't have to get our fair share, because we are happy to have other people get more than us. Happy? Yes, we are happy when someone gets more than we do. Because we don't find our happiness in ourselves, but in everyone. If you can love everyone, like Jesus said to do, you are free to have all the happiness in the world.
