FIRST READING: Is. 22: 19-23
"I place the key of the house of David upon his shoulder."

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:
Ps. 138 "Your love, O Lord, is eternal, discard not the work of your hands."

SECOND READING:
Rom. 11: 33-36 "From him, through him, and in him are all things."

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:
Mt. 16: 18 "You are Peter, the rock on which I will build my Church; the gates of hell will not hold out against it."

GOSPEL: Mt. 16: 13-20
"You are Peter, to you I will give the keys of the kingdom of heaven."


FOCUS: The truths of Jesus Christ are given to and kept alive by his body, the church. Those truths are: if we love one another like Jesus loves us, we will be in heaven forever with God.

REFLECTION: The church of the Lord is built upon the rock of the apostles among countless dangers in the world; it therefore remains unmoved. The Church's foundation is unshakable and firm against the assaults of the raging sea. Waves lash at the Church but do not shatter it. Although the elements of this world constantly batter and crash against her, she offers the safest harbor of salvation for all in distress. St. Ambrose

Nobody was ever less like rock than this warm-hearted and incorrigibly impulsive man, [St. Peter].... He never thought he was special... Yet he died on a cross for Christ. Sr. Wendy Beckett

A misson of love can come only from union with God. From that union, love for the family, love for neighbour, love for the poor is natural fruit.
Mother Teresa of Cakcutta

The entire life span of men is very brief when measured against the ages to come, so that all our time is nothing in comparison with eternal life. Everything in the world is sold for what it is worth, and someone trades an item for its equivalent. But the promise of Life Eternal is purchased for very little.
St. ThŽrse of Lisieux

God has not called his servants to a mediocre, ordinary life, but rather to the perfection of a sublime holiness since he said to his disciples: "Be ye perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect."
Bl. Henry Suso


The Mass on the feast of St. Augustine, August 28, is especially beautiful. The first reading is from First John, Chapter 4, verses 7-16, beginning "Dearly beloved, let us love one another..." Mass will be at____oclock. Come. Be inspired.


APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: Introduction to the Liturgy: The church has been handed the keys to God's kingdom. It is up to us to use these keys to unlock the hearts of humankind and make visible the love of God. If we do this, death shall not prevail against us. We are promised immortality.
Introductory Rite:
The Rite of Sprinkling Holy Water: Through our baptism in water, we have been handed the keys to the kingdom that we may show others the way to salvation.


General Intercessions:
Introduction: Let us pray with humility, simplicity and confidence to God our Father, who has placed the keys to the kingdom in our hands:
For all who have dedicated themselves to God, that they may have the strength to be faithful to their goals;
For all who have dedicated themselves to God, that they may not seek exaltation;
For all peoples of the world: thatwe may be united in peace and harmony;
For all our sisters and brothers in need: that we may assist them;
May we all have the faith to bear witness to Christ's presence and love, as did St. Peter who died on a cross for Christ and the church.

Preface: 2 for Sundays in Ordinary Time
Prayers over the People: 5 or 25

O Lord, fill me with thy grace, for the benefit of all

Faith Formation
Peter means rock in Latin. "Upon this rock I will build my church." That's us folks. We are that church. It's an awesome responsibility.

Children's Liturgy of the Word
There are many stories to tell of the life of St. Peter, our first pope: he was a fisherman who saw and heard Jesus and was inspired. Jesus noticed him and called him to be a fisher of men. And there is the story of his walking on water, and his denial of Jesus just before the crucifixtion. After Jesus' death, Peter went to Rome where he was crucified for Christ and the church.
