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

FIRST READING:

Ezekiel 47:1-2.8-9.12 The water from the temple brings life.

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:

Ps 46:2-3, 5-6, 8-9

SECOND READING:

1 Corinthians 3:9-10.16-17 You are God's temple.

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:

Mt. 5: 3 "Happy the poor in spirit; the kingdom of heaven is theirs!"

GOSPEL:

John 2:13-22 Jesus drives the money-changers from the temple..

FOCUS:The water from the temple brings life. True giving and piety come from our hearts.

REFLECTION: O blessed poverty, who bestows eternal riches on those who love and embrace her! O holy poverty, to those who possess and desire you God pormises the kingdom of heaven and offers, indeed, eternal glory and blessed life. O God-centered poverty, whom the Lord Jesus Christ, who ruled and now rules heaven and earth, who spoke and things were made, who descended to embrace before all else! St. Clare of Assisi

APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: Introduction to the rite of Sprinkling with Holy Water: God washes away our tendency towards self-indulgence and false pride. Let us be like the widow in today's gospel and give what we still need rather than our surplus. Let us sacrifice for God's loved ones, the poor.

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 supplies all our needs to hear our prayer:

For all who have dedicated themselves to God, that he will help them to be faithful to their promise;

For peace among nations, that God may strengthen us to rid the world of violence, so that we may serve him in peace.

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

For all of us gathered here, may we learn to give from our need and not merely our surplus;

Preface: Second for Sundays in Ordinary Time

Concluding Rite:

Prayers over the People: Fifth

Faith Formation

Who is God's temple?

What is your response to the oppression of others? Should not all oppressin cease if all are temples of God?

Children's Liturgy of the Word

How do we love our oppressors. Jesus drove the money changers out of the temple. What do you think that was like?
