FIRST READING:

2 Kings 4: 8-16 "That is the holy man of God, let him remain there."



RESPONSORIAL PSALM:

Ps. 89 "I will sing for ever of your love, O Lord."



SECOND READING:

Rom. 6: 3-4, 8-11 "Having been buried with him through baptism, we shall

walk in a new life."



GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:

1 Pet. 2: 9 "You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy people.

Praise God who called you out of darkness and into his marvelous light."



GOSPEL: Mt. 10: 37-42

"Anyone who does not accept his cross is not worthy of me. Anyone who

welcomes you, welcomes me."



FOCUS: Let us be those who welcome others to our table, to our church, to

our neighborhood, to our hearts, for we will be welcoming Jesus Himself.



REFLECTION: A brother said to Abba Cronius, ‘Speak a word to me.' When

Elisha came to the Shunamite, he did not find her busy with anyone else. So

she conceived and bore a child through the coming of Elisha.' (2 Kings 4)

The brother said to him, ‘What does this mean?' The old man said, ‘If the

soul is vigilant and withdraws from all distraction and abandons its own

will, then the spirit of God invades it and it can conceive because it is

free to do so.

How should you order yourself inwardly so as to enjoy peace of soul?

Secure for yourself inner solitude. But such solitude is not a mere vacuum

nor can it be gained simply by creating complete emp-

tiness in oneself. When you retreat into yourself, you should stand before

the Lord, and remain in His presence, not letting the eyes of the mind turn

away from the Lord. This is the true wilderness—to stand face to face with

the Lord. This state of standing before the Lord is something that supports

and maintains itself. To be with the Lord is the aim of our existence, and

when we are with Him we cannot fail to experience a feeling of well-being;

this feeling naturally attracts our attention to itself, and through this,

to the Lord from whom the feeling comes.†

Theophane the Recluse



APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: Self-abandonment and hospitality

towards others are signs of true love of God. Introduce the liturgy by

proclaiming that to follow Christ is to put love for God and neighbor above

our own ambitions and preoccupations.

What does it mean, we are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy

people? It means God has called us out of the darkness of hatred into the

light of love. Jesus gave us a message to take to the world: Love God and

you will become pure enough to be in God's presence for all eternity. It is

that mission, that message, that makes Christians a royal priesthood.

Opening prayer: See alternative

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 guide us in overcoming 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 eighth preface for Sundays in Ordinary Time

Introduce the breaking of the bread with the idea that the Eucharist is

the food that gives us the grace to overcome the sorrows and hardships of

the world. It reminds us that Jesus gave his life to show us what real love

is.

Concluding Rite—

Prayers over the People: Twelfth

Children's Liturgy

of the Word

Teach the children three favorite hymns, and have the children sing them

every week until they know them well. Then teach them three more. Notice

which hymns the children sing with enthusiasm and make those part of your

weekly program. Explain all metaphors and images to the children so they

know what they are singing about. Explain what metaphors and similes are -–

teaching devices. Delve for the truth taught by means of the images.
