FIRST READING: Is. 55: 6-9 "My thoughts are not your thoughts."

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:
Ps. 145 "The Lord is close to all who call him."

SECOND READING:
Phil. 1: 20-24, 27 "For me, to live is Christ."

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:
Acts 16: 14 "Open our hearts, O Lord, to listen to the words of your Son."

GOSPEL: Mt. 20: 1-16 "Why are you jealous because I am generous?"


FOCUS: The Lord is near to all who call upon Him.


REFLECTION: "Enter eagerly into the treasure-house of heaven: for the two are the same, and there is but one entry to them both. The ladder that leads to the Kingdom is hidden within you, and is found in your soul. Dive into yourself and in your soul you will discover the rungs by which to ascend."
St. Isaac the Syrian

"Too late I loved you, O Beauty so ancient yet ever new! Too late I loved you! And behold, you were within me, and I out of myself, and there I searched for you."
St. Augustine

" Keep the joy of loving God in yourheart and share this joy with all you meet especially your family." Mother Teresa of Calcutta

"You seek the Lord? Seek, but only within yourself. He is not far from anyone. The Lord is near all those who truly call on Him. Find a place in your heart, and speak there with the Lord. It is the Lord's reception room. Everyone who meets the Lord, meets Him there; He has fixed no other place for meeting souls."
Theophane the Recluse

"Lord, you are my lover,
My longing,
My flowing stream,
My sun,
And I am your reflection."
Mechtild of Magdeburg


"The Lord
is close
to all
who call him."

APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: Introduction to the Liturgy: St. Paul tells us life means Christ. Life for Christ, in Christ, and because of Christ. Christ gave us his life, we give him our lives. Let us live in Christ.

Sample General Intercessions:
Introduction: My dear brothers and sisters, we are gathered to celebrate the mystery of our salvation in Jesus Christ. Let us ask God our Father to open for all the world this fountain of life and love:

For all those who have dedicated themselves to God, that God illumine their minds and guide their actions;

For peace among nations, that a new spirit of generosity suffuse the hearts of all of us;

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

For all of us gathered here, that God will teach us to see him in the mercy
and holiness of our friends and family, and ourselves.

Preface: Second or seventh for Sundays in Ordinary Time

Introduce the breaking of the bread, proclaiming the Eucharist as the ultimate sign of God's mercy. In this bread we are endowed with grace that we may glimpse the mind of God.

Concluding Rite-
Prayers over the People: Eighth or seventeenth

Faith Formation
My ways are not your ways. The owner of the vineyard was being generous. Such generosity was beyond the grasp of his workers. He was being merciful. Justice would have required him to pay much less, but he chose to be generous. Christians are called upon to go beyond justice to mercy.

Children's Liturgy of the Word
God is kind and merciful, and he loves us. He is not somewhere far away, He is within us, and everywhere else, too, at the same time. When you need Him, call upon Him. Because He is kind and merciful, and He loves you.
