FIRST READING:
Sir. 27: 30:28: 7 " Forgive your neighbor's faults, and when you pray your sins will be forgiven."

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:
Ps. 103 "The Lord is compassion and love, slow to anger and rich in mercy.."

SECOND READING:
Rom. 14: 7-9 "Whether alive of dead , we belong to the Lord.." Christ is Lord of the living and the dead.

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:
Jn. 13: 34 "I give you a new commandment: love one another as I have loved you."

GOSPEL: Mt. 18: 21-35
"I tell you to forgive not seven times but seventy times seven."


FOCUS: "I tell you to forgive not seven times but seventy times seven." How can we expect mercy from God if we do not give mercy to our neighbor?


REFLECTION: "He who has repented travels towards the Lord... The sight of the mind becomes clear, and the spirit, beholding God, will receive from Him the power to see and drive away everything which could put it to shame before God. Yet there are many who expect to approach God merely by outer words and deeds. They never come near."
Theophane the Recluse


"God is purity himself; nothing impure can come before him. I don't think God can hate, because God is love and he loves us inspite of our misery and sinfulness. He is a loving Father and we have only to turn to him. God cannot hate; God loves because he is love, but impurity is an obstacle to seeing God."
Mother Teresa of Calcutta

"If it is true that sin in a certain sense shuts man off from God, it is likewise true that remorse for sins opens up all the greatness and majesty of God, his fatherhood above all, to man's conscience."
Pope John Paul II

"Love one
another as
I have loved you."

APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: God's love is extraordinary and unlike ours: it is unrestricted and measureless. Infinite and eternal. Perfect. We may take refuge and rest in God's love, because we know He will forgive us our sins if we truly repent.
Penitential rite: Third form with fourth set of sample invocations
General Intercessions:
Introduction: My sisters and brothers, let us pray to God whose love and mercy are infinite:
¥ That all of us might hear the word of God and forgive and love one another as He forgivesand loves us;
¥ÊThat all of us might find peace in God's mercy;
¥ That all of us who have grown complacent in faith might turn to God again and be reconciled with Love;
¥ That all of us who profess Jesus the Christ might receive him in everyone throughout the world.

Preface: Sixth for Sundays in Ordinary Time
Lord's Prayer: Third suggested introduction
Prayers over the People: Second



Faith Formation
This is the heart of Christianity. "Love one another as I have loved you." God is totally merciful.
¥ Can you accept a totally merciful
God?
¥ Can you be totally merciful?
Practice loving on a daily, minute by minute, basis. Take the time to be interested in those around you. Be kind to people who may or may not be able to do you some good someday.

Children's Liturgy of the Word
Talk about revenge, and vengeance, and nursing a grudge. Getting even. Hatred. Hatred that collects and saves the misdeeds of others and seeks revenge for them. See how miserable it makes you to even talk about it?
Talk about love, and being kind to all, and helping others to love, forgiving the trespasses of our friends and loved ones, and even the trespasses of those who don't seem to love us. Makes you happy, doesn't it, just to talk about love.
Talk about the commandment that the Son of God gave us: Love one another as I have loved you. He didn't say pay back your enemies, He didn't say get even with bullies, He didn't even say get even with those who persecute Me. He said be merciful. He said love one another.
