June 21, 2004 Tweflth Sunday in Ordinary Time: Cycle C

FIRST READING:

Daniel 12: 1-3 "At that time your people shall escape."

There will come a time of great distress.Then the wise shall shine brightly, and those who lead others to virtue will shine as stars.

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:

Ps. 16 "Save me, God. I take refuge in you.."

SECOND READING:

Heb. 10: 11-14, 18 "By a single offering he has achieved the eternal perfection of those who are sanctified.."

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:

Luke 21: 36 "Be vigilant, that you may be worthy to stand before the Son of Man."

GOSPEL:

Mk. 13:24-32 "He shall gather his elect from the four winds."

 

FOCUS: Be watchful and pray constantly so that you will be ready when the Son of Man returns, and you will be ready for your death.

 

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 begin 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 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

"By a single offering he has achieved the eternal perfection of those who are sanctified."

What are God's servants but his minstrels, who inspire our hearts and stir them to spiritual joy.

St. Francis of Assissi

Your hand upholds the universe, your love gives rest to the world.

Cyrillona

APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY The liturgy is full of short prayers that can be repeated with continuing attention and effect. Let the liturgy teach you to pray.

Opening Prayer: See alternate

Sample General Intercessions:

Introduction: My dear sisters and brothers, we are gathered to celebrate the mystery of our salvation in Jesus Christ. Let us ask God our Father who loves us to hear our prayer:

We praise and thank you, God for all of Your Creation;

For all who have dedicated themselves to God, may He help them to be faithful

to their promises;

For peace among nations, that God may strengthen us to rid our hearts of

anger and pride;

For the aged who suffer from loneliness and infirmity, that we will sustain them by our love;

With Your grace, may we be a community of persons whose lives reflect love, service and praise to Your glory;

Preface: Third for Sundays in Ordinary Time

Concluding Rite:

Prayers over the People: First, fourth, or sixteenth

Faith Formation

How can you pray constantly?

"When you pray, shut your eyes for a moment and try to concentrate your spiritual powers. If you get tired, raise your eyes to the icon or the lighted candle. Concentrating on prayer this way, the heart will find within itself that spiritual warmth which comes from Christ himself and fills one's whole being with peace and joy."

St. Seraphim of Sarov

Children's Liturgy of the Word

Prayer is talking with God. Sometimes we talk to Him without words, just thinking about him, being in his presence. Listening to him. Loving him. Doing what he wants us to do.
