FIRST READING:
Jer. 20: 7-9 "The word of the Lord has meant derision for me."

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:
Ps. 63 "My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God."

SECOND READING:
Rom. 12: 1-2 "May you present your bodies as a living sacrifice."

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:
Mt. 16: 21-27 "If any man wants to come after me, let him deny himself."

GOSPEL: Mt. 16: 21-27
"If a man wishes to come to me, he must deny his very self, take up his cross, and begin to follow in my footsteps.... For what would it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul in the process."


FOCUS: "Take up your cross and follow me." By responding to the Lord's invitation we enter into salvation.

REFLECTION: Thanks be to you, Lord Jesus Christ: in all my trials and sufferings you have given me the strenth to stand firm; in your mercy you have granted me a share of eternal glory.
Irenaeus, Greek Prelate

The Lord's command seems difficult and painful when he says that anyone who wishes to follow him must deny himself. But it is not really so, since he helps us to do what he commands. He fulfills his own words: "My yoke is easy and my burden is light." Love makes it easy to carry out whatever is difficult.
St. Augustine


Clothe the naked Christ:by your charity in words and protecting the good name of others. Give a home for the homeless Christ:by you making your own home a home of peace and joy and love, through your thoughtfulness for everyone in your family and your next-door neighbour.
Mother Teresa of Calcutta


We must love others with the same love which God pours into our hearts and with which he himelf loves us. Here, too, what obstacles stand in the way of making the other our neighbor: we do not love God and our brethren enough.
Pope John Paul II


O my God, speak, your servant is listening and is ready to obey you in all things.
St. Angela Merici of Brescia
(Founder of the Ursulines, the oldest teaching order of women in the church.)


APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: Rather than exulting in our righteousness we are called to persevere in carrying our respective crosses, patiently, and to follow Jesus in his love for all creation.
Sample General Intercessions:
Introduction: My brothers and sisters, may all who follow Christ be rewarded with the knowledge that they bring the seeds of the gospel to bloom on earth. Let us pray:
• For all those who gather in the Holy Spirit of God, that he will help us to be faithful to our baptismal call;
• For God's peace among nations, that we may rid our hearts of hatred and violence;
• For the aged who suffer from loneliness and infirmity, that we may sustain

them by our attentive love;

• For all of us gathered here, that God will teach us to live wisely, that we may be ever closer to him and to his eternal blessings.

Faith Formation
Humility is praised by Jesus many times in the gospels. Are you willing to be humble, or does the whole idea offend your pride? If your pride is keeping you from following Jesus maybe you ought to just dump that pride. God loves us all. You're not special. On the other hand, there is no one he loves more than you.

Children's Liturgy of the Word
What does Jesus mean, "Deny yourself, take up your cross, and follow me?
He means don't be selfish, let others have the best and the biggest once in awhile. Be fair. Or better yet, give generously, give more than you have to. That's what Jesus did.
We all have crosses to bear:illness, poverty, a cranky parent, an unseeing teacher. Let us bear our crosses patiently and follow Jesus, giving more than we have to, willingly doing more than our share of the work, loving everyone.
