FIRST READING:

Wis. 7: 7-11 "In comparison to wisdom, I held riches as nothing."

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:

Ps. 90 "Fill us with your love, O Lord, and we will sing with joy!"

SECOND READING:

Heb. 4: 12-13 "The word of God discerns the thoughts and intentions of the heart."

GOSPEL: Mk. 10: 17-30 r 10: 17-27

"Go and sell whatever you have and come follow me."

FOCUS: "Go and sell whatever you have and come follow me"

REFLECTION: The gift which we have received from Jesus Christ in holy baptism is not destroyed, but is only buried as a treasure in the ground. And both common sense and gratitude demand that we should take good care to unearth this treasure and bring it to light. This can be done in two ways. The gift of baptism is revealed first of all by a painstaking fulfillment of the commandments; the more we carry these out, the more clearly the gift shines upon us in its true splendour and brilliance. Secondly, it comes to light and is revealed through the continual invocation of the Lord Jesus, or by unceasing remembrance of God, which is one and the same thing. The first method is powerful but the second is more so; so much so that even fidelity to the commandments receives its full strength from prayer. For this reason, if we truly desire to bring to flower the seed of grace that is hidden within us, we should hasten to acquire the habit of this exercise of the heart, and always practise this prayer within it, without any image or form, until it warms our mind and inflames our soul with an inexpressible love towards God and men ." St. Gregory of Sinai

"The word of God discerns the thoughts and

intentions of the heart."

"Anyone who has the light to understand what I mean and the grace to follow it will experience indeed, the delight of the Lord's playfulness. For like a father frolicking with his son, he will hug and kiss one who comes to him with a child's heart." Anonymous,

The Cloud of Unknowing

 

APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: Prayers for the displaced, the homeless, the immigrants, the strangers in our midst, would be appropriate.

Opening Prayer: Alternate

General Intercessions:

Introduction: My brothers and sisters, God is the source of eternal nourishment. Let us pray to God, whose gifts are without limits:

¥ For the Church of God: that we may joyfully proclaim and live our faith in Christ the eternal gift from God;

¥ For peace and well-being of the whole world, that God's gift to us in this life will lead us to salvation in the life to come;

¥ For those who suffer from hunger, sickness, or loneliness: that the gift of Christ's presence bring them health and peace;

¥ For our community and our families, who welcome Christ into their lives: that they learn to receive him in the poor and suffering people of this world.

Preface: First or eighth preface in Ordinary time

Prayers over the people: Eighth or

Solemn Blessing in Ordinary time: Fifth

Faith Formation

The Christian faith, along with other faiths, is a conscious decision to live the way God tells us to live, in peace and harmony with all His Children. It is a continuing movement away from being self-centered to being centered on God.

¥The gospel calls the man to go give his possessions to the poor? What is most important in your life. Is it the things you have or the spiritual, fleeting things?

Giving up the self to the poor is most important. In this we are opening up to the Divine, we learn to live the Divine Way, taught to us by God.

 

Children's Liturgy of the Word

To follow the ways of God is to never get too preocupied with the things in this world. The things are for our enjoyment, not for us to become slaves to.
