FIRST READING:

Num. 11: 25-29 "Are you jealous for my sake? Would that all the people of the Lord were prophets!"

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:

Ps. 19: 8, 10,12-13,14 "The precepts of the Lord give joy to the heart."

SECOND READING:

James 5: 1-6 "Your wealth has rotted away."

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:

John 17: 17 "Your word, O Lord, is truth."

GOSPEL:

Mark 9:38-43, 45, 47-48 "Whoever is not against us is for us."

FOCUS: "Whoever is not against us is for us." Jesus was not jealous of another person teaching in his name, as long as that person preached the gospel. Christians must love one another, even those of another tradition.

REFLECTION: The time is always ripe for re-union. Divisions between Christians are a sin and a scandal, and Christians ought at all times to be making contributions to re-union, if it is only by their prayers.

C. S. Lewis

Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace. Where there is hatred let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be undersood as to understand; to be loved as to love. for it is giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

"Your word,

O Lord, is truth."

You seek the Lord? Seek, but only within yourself. He is not far from anyone. The Lord is near all those who truly call on Him. Find a place in your heart, and speak there with the Lord. Theophane the Recluse

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. Thrse of Lisieux

APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: Introduce the liturgy by stating that all those who love Christ, whether they are Lutherans, Baptists, or whatever, are our brothers and sisters.

Sample General Intercessions:

Introduction: My beloved brothers and sisters, may all who follow Christ devote themselves to loving humility. Let us pray to God, who elevates us all:

Ľ For all those who gather in the Holy Spirit of God, that he will help them to

be faithful to the call of the gospel;

Ľ For peace among nations, that God may instill humility into the hearts of world leaders;

Ľ:For the aged who suffer from loneliness and infirmity, that we will sustain

them by our lives;

Ľ For all of us who love Jesus, that God will lead us all closer to him and to eternal blessing.

Eucharistic Prayer: Fourth

Introduce the breaking of the bread: This bread, the body of Christ, strengthens us to see God in all people.

Concluding Rite:

Prayers over the People: Second or twentieth.

Faith Formation

What can you do to lessen aggression amongst Christians? For one thing, we can all quit saying negative things about each other.

of the Word

St. Francis is patron saint of the natural world. He talked to birds and animals about God's love.

He brought Christianity closer to the people by preaching in the streets and in the countryside. His message was one of faith, love, poverty and joy. He founded the Fransican Orders, and was canonized in 1228.
