FIRST READING:

Jer. 31: 7-9 "I shall lead them back in mercy, both the blind and the lame."

Shout and proclaim for the Lord has saved Israel.

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:

Ps. 126 "What marvels the Lord worked for us! Indeed we were glad."

SECOND READING:

Heb. 5: 1-6 "You are a priest for ever according to the order of Melchizedek."

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:

2 Tim. 1: 1-10 "Our Savior Jesus Christ has done away with death, and brought us life through his gospel."

GOSPEL:

Mk. 10: 46-52 "Master, grant that I may see."

Jesus left Jericho with his disciples and a large crowd. Bartimaeus, a blind beggar shouted through the crowd for Jesus to have pity on him. Jesus restored his sight and said to him to go for his faith had healed him.

 

FOCUS: Jesus not only healed the lame and blind, he destroyed death.

He came to tell us that Love is the way to please God.

REFLECTION: Every real Christian must always remember and must never let himself forget, that it is indispensable for him to be united with Our Lord the Saviour in his whole being; to let the Lord dwell in his mind and heart, and to live according to His most holy life. The Lord took our flesh, and we must take His flesh and His all-holy Spirit, accepting them and holding fast to them for ever. Only such a union with Our Lord will give us that peace and good-will, that light

"Our Savior Jesus Christ has done away with death, and brought us life through his

gospel."

and life which we lost in the first Adam, and which are now renewed within us by the second Adam, the Lord Jesus Christ. Bishop Justin Martyr

APPLYING THE READINGS TO

THE LITURGY: Introduction to the Liturgy: It is not only the eyes of the blind that need to be opened. We as a community need faith so that we can see. Let the liturgy strengthen your faith.

Penitential Rite: Third form with second set of sample invocations.

Sample General Intercessions:

Introduction: My brothers and sisters, God heals us through faith. Let us pray to God not only for ourselves but for all humankind:

For the Holy Church of God, that the Lord guide it; may he restore sight to those of us blinded by greed, pride, and delusion;

For all young people throughout the world: that their idealistic efforts be guided by faith;

For all our sisters and brothers in need; may we have faith in the Lord and help them like he said to do;

For ourselves and our community, may we all develop the faith necessary to see God.

Introduce the profession of faith with the idea that through God's grace we receive faith, and yet it is

ultimately up to us as individuals to act on that grace by living the way Jesus told us to live.

Preface: Seventh for Sundays in Ordinary Time

Concluding Rite:

Prayers over the People: Second or ninth

Faith Formation

What does the first reading say about the people of God? The Israelites were taken away in slavery, and the Lord in his mercy brought them back. It is the Lord who saves us from death.

In what ways have you been healed of blindness? Or have you? Please accept that we all make mistakes, even you, and allow yourself to see.
