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

FIRST READING:

Rev. 7: 2-4, 9-14 "I saw an immense crowd, beyond hope of counting, of people from every nation, race, tribe and language."

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:

Ps. 24 "Lord, this is the people that long to see your face."

SECOND READING:

1 John 3: 1-3 "We shall see God as he really is."

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:

"Come to me, all you that labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest, says the Lord."

GOSPEL:

Mk. 5: 1-12 "Rejoice and be glad for your reward will be great in heaven."

Upon seeing the crowd, Jesus goes up the hill and begins to teach them through the words of the beatitudes.

 

FOCUS: "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall see mercy." The saints are characterized by their loving mercy and their inspiring faith.

REFLECTION: Be patient in trials, watchful in prayer, and never cease working. Be considerate in your speech, well-orderd in your actions and grateful to your benefactors. Remember, for all this an eternal kingdom is being made ready for you. St. Francis of Assisi

God is not merely good, but goodness; goodness is not merely divine, but God. C. S. Lewis

Do not be afraid to be holy.

Pope John Paul II

The saints have no need of honor from us; neither does our devotion add the slightest thing to what is theirs. Clearly, if we venerate their memory, it serves us, not them. But I tell you, when I think of them, I feel myself inflamed by tremendous yearning.

St. Bernard of Clairvaux

With God, nothing is lost.

St. Marguerite d‘Youville

"Rejoice and be glad for your

reward will be great in heaven."

 

APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: The beatitudes proclaim those blest by God and destined for sainthood are the humble and merciful. Not the rich, not the socially prominent. Not the intelligent. Focus on our common bond of humanity with the saints. Introductions could focus on the connection between the spirit of the beatitudes and the spirit of sainthood.

General Intercessions:

- For all who have dedicated themselves to the Lord, that in their poverty they find the richness of communion with the Holy Spirit;

- For peace among nations, that world leaders see the necessity of putting the value of life over material gain;

- For all those who suffer from loneliness, especially the aged, that we may share the wealth of God's love with them;

- For all of us gathered here, that we may move ever closer to God, the fountain of all blessings.

 

Faith Formation

What is a saint? Who is a saint? What do we mean by saint? Who comes to your mind when you think ‘saint'?

Qualities all saints share include a great love of God, a heart full of mercy for all His Creatures, humility, wisdom... What other qualities would you expect in a saint?

Are you a saint? Of course you are. Let your holiness shine out!
