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

FIRST READING:

2 Kings 5: 14-17 "Nahaam professes that the Lord is God."

Upon Elisha's instruction, Nahaam immerses himself seven times in the Jordan, healing him of his leprosy.

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:

Ps. 98 "The Lord has shown his salvation to the nations."

SECOND READING:

2 Tim. 2: 8-13 "If we hold firm, we shall reign with Christ."

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:

1 Thess. 5: 18 "For all things give thanks to God, because this is what he expects of you in Christ Jesus."

GOSPEL: Lk. 17:11-19

"It seems that no one has returned to give thanks to God except this stranger." As Jesus is travelling he encounters ten lepers, who cry out for pity. Jesus tells them to present themselves to the priests. On their way the lepers are healed. Only one returns to thank Jesus.

FOCUS: "It seems that no one has returned to give thanks to God except this stranger."

REFLECTION: "Anyone who has the light to understand what I mean and the grace to follow it will experience indeed, the delight of the Lord’s playfulness. For like a father frolicking with his son, he will hug and kiss one who comes to him with a child's heart."

Anonymous, The Cloud of Unknowing

The gift which we have received from Jesus Christ in holy baptism is not destroyed, but is only buried as a treasure in the ground. And both common sense and gratitude demand that we should take good care to unearth this treasure and bring it to light. This can be done in two ways. The gift of baptism is revealed first of all by a painstaking fulfillment of the commandments; the more we carry these out, the more clearly the gift shines upon us in its true splendour and brilliance. Secondly, it comes to light and is revealed through the continual invocation of the Lord Jesus, or by unceasing remembrance of God, which is one and the same thing. The first method is powerful but the second is more so; so much so that even fidelity to the commandments receives its full strength from prayer. For this reason, if we truly desire to bring to flower the seed of grace that is hidden within us, we should hasten to acquire the habit of this exercise of the heart, and always practise this prayer within it, without any image or form, until it warms our mind and inflames our soul with an inexpressible love towards God and men ."

  St. Gregory of Sinai

APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: Introduce the liturgy: The Samaritan leper returned to give thanks to Jesus. Salvation is for the dispossessed as well as the chosen. Prayers for the displaced, the homeless, the immigrants, the strangers in our midst, would be appropriate.

Penitential rite Third form with eighth set of sample invocations

Opening Prayer: Alternate

General Intercessions—

Introduction: My brothers and sisters, God is the source of eternal nourishment. Let us pray to God, whose gifts are without limits:

• For the Church of God: that we may joyfully proclaim and live our faith in Christ the eternal gift from God;

• For peace and well-being of the whole world, that God's gift to us in this life will lead us to salvation in the life to come;

• For those who suffer from hunger, sickness, or loneliness: that the gift of Christ's presence bring them health and peace;

• For our community and our families, who welcome Christ into their lives: that they learn to receive him in the poor and suffering people of this world.

Preface: First or eighth preface in Ordinary time

Prayers over the people: Eighth or

Solemn Blessing in Ordinary time: Fifth

Faith Formation

The Christian faith, along with other faiths, is a conscious decision to live the way God tells us to live, in peace and harmony with all His Children. It is a continuing movement away from being self-centered to being centered on God.

• In what ways did Nahaam in the

first reading and the Samaritan of

today’s gospel give thanks to God?

• What does it feel like to think

about giving up your will to God?

• What are some of your fears about

this process of self-abandonment?

We find that giving up the self is opening up to the Divine, we learn to live the Divine Way, taught to us by God.

of the Word

God wants us to be thankful. God wants us to be like the one leper who came back to thank to Jesus. Do you thank people for the things they do for you? Do you thank your parents and teachers for teaching you the things you need to know? Do you thank your friends for encouraging you? Do you thank God for giving you the chance to learn to live in peace with strangers?
