Ezekiel, God’s watchman
who alerts the people to need for repentance

Prayer for Church
in light of the brotherly love and fraternal correction of the Gospel


Come, Holy Spirit, open our eyes and hearts to our responsibilities within the body of Christ.
See to it that we quickly discern our own weaknesses and imperfections and seek and give mercy in the community of our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Grant us the humility to listen and accept it when others lovingly and rightfully tell us our faults and return the favor as needed.
Fill us with Jesus’ brotherly love so that we come to know at the right time and with the right words to help others find again your covenant path and be willing ourselves to welcome your pardon through them in the same way.
Grant that our parish be a community which together constantly seeks a greater response to your love so that we live the Gospel fully in the truth of the Father’s plan of salvation revealed in Christ Jesus.

Based on prayer of Father Raphael Devillers, Belgian Dominican

Because of your infinite power, Lord God, every gift of yours is the best for us that can ever be.

You have revealed to us, Lord our God, that everything you do comes from your love. Your love blesses us abundantly with earthly gifts. Even more your love goes beyond the visible gifts of this world and you lovingly prepare even greater gifts that we cannot yet see. To receive your gifts of heaven and earth we must accept them in love of you and neighbor.

Eucharistic Blessing & Sharing

Thanks be to God

Brief Summary of Readings

 

The scripture passages for this Sunday are remarkable for bringing together a wide range of the word of God to focus us on the reality of the gifts of God for which we give thanks (Eucharist).

Isaiah 55:1-3
The return from the Babylonian Exile is the occasion for these writings of the prophet Isaiah (third generation) in the mid 500’s B.C. He describes God at work saving his people using the image of a great banquet – all of which is free, without us paying for it. It is a gift of God and we are being called to acknowledge that God is the source of what is this generosity we are experiencing. This all stems from his Covenant love.

Psalm 145:8-9, 15-16, 17-18 (cf. 16)
The hand of the Lord feeds us; he answers all our needs.
 This thanksgiving and praise of God comes in a prayer form in this psalm. Our response begins with the Moses old statement of faith in our Lord as a merciful God who has shown great tolerance of us over the centuries as he pours out his grace and reconciliation to change our hearts to be in harmony with his. This divine assistance is expressed as “food” that nourishes us with his covenant word.

Romans 8:35, 37-39
Saint Paul teaches us that God has joined us to himself by a bond that cannot be broken because his covenant love is in Christ Jesus — nothing can separate us from him because of his Son’s love in dying and rising for us.

Matthew 14:13-21
The well-known testimony of the Gospels comes to us in the verses where Jesus feeds the multitude. He takes ity on his people, as the Lord did of old, he gives thanks to his Father for such a gift, there is no one else could so provide what we really need, giving us daily bread as he did in establishing the Covenant in the desert.

All this can be summed up in no better way than in Jesus’ own words:

One does not live on bread alone,
but on every word that comes forth from the mouth of God
Matthew 4:4b

 

Alternate version of Sunday’s prayer of the Church.

It is by you, O Lord, that we have been created and now live. It is also through you that our lives are guided to their heavenly goal. We are not only proud of this fact but are confident in coming to your inexhaustible goodness and love seeking what we need from you and for which we hunger. Sustain us with your food from above that our lives be so nourished by you that we reach life’s fulfillment in your heavenly home.

Greater than Solomon Here
Precious Wisdom of the Lord Jesus

At the judgment the queen of the south will arise with this generation and condemn it, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and there is something greater than Solomon here. (Matthew 12:42)

Knowledge of the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven has been granted to you (Matthew 13:11)

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net thrown into the sea,
which collects fish of every kind.
When it is full they haul it ashore
and sit down to put what is good into buckets.
What is bad they throw away.
Thus it will be at the end of the age [the day of judgment].
The angels will go out and separate the wicked from the righteous
and throw them into the fiery furnace,
where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth. (Today’s Gospel — see below)

Today’s Prayer

TODAY’S PRAYER
We have come to know you better and better, Lord our God. We have come to know that life without you is impossible. Without you nothing is worthwhile, nothing holy. It is in you that we find hope. We also know now you are the only God who can really protect us in our struggles of life, the only God in whom we can take refuge because you never desert those who love you in return. It is our prayer that you never cease to rule our lives and guide us in your ways so that under the present transitory conditions we may use wisely the things of earth so as not to lose what lasts forever.

Saint Mary Magdalene holds a prominent place in the early Church as the first one to see the risen Lord. She had stood beneath the cross together with Jesus’ mother and Saint John and a few others. Mary Magdalene remains an outstanding example of gratefulness to God for the merciful love he showed her through Christ. That love deepened at the Resurrection when the Lord Jesus told her that her love was raised to a higher level upon his ascension into heaven. Love of Christ for us as well spans both heaven and earth (today’s Gospel). Then Mary Magdalene was commissioned to bring the news of the risen Lord to the others.

The Prayer over the Gifts from Mass today.

May you find acceptable to you, Lord, the offering of our lives on this day commemorating the saintly joy of Mary Magdalene for it was her obedient and profound love that your beloved Son so graciously accepted unto eternal life.

Gospel John 20:1-2, 11-18
On the first day of the week,
Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early in the morning,
while it was still dark,
and saw the stone removed from the tomb.
So she ran and went to Simon Peter
and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and told them,
“They have taken the Lord from the tomb,
and we don’t know where they put him.”

Mary stayed outside the tomb weeping.
And as she wept, she bent over into the tomb
and saw two angels in white sitting there,
one at the head and one at the feet
where the Body of Jesus had been.
And they said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?”
She said to them, “They have taken my Lord,
and I don’t know where they laid him.”
When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus there,
but did not know it was Jesus.
Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?
Whom are you looking for?”
She thought it was the gardener and said to him,
“Sir, if you carried him away,
tell me where you laid him,
and I will take him.”
Jesus said to her, “Mary!”
She turned and said to him in Hebrew,
“Rabbouni,” which means Teacher.
Jesus said to her,
“Stop holding on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father.
But go to my brothers and tell them,
‘I am going to my Father and your Father,
to my God and your God.’”
Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples,
“I have seen the Lord,”
and then reported what he told her.


June 29, 2020 Feast of Saints Peter & Paul

Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, Apostles – Vigil

Reading 1 ACTS 3:1-10

Peter and John were going up to the temple area
for the three o’clock hour of prayer.
And a man crippled from birth was carried
and placed at the gate of the temple called “the Beautiful Gate”
every day to beg for alms from the people who entered the temple.
When he saw Peter and John about to go into the temple,
he asked for alms.
But Peter looked intently at him, as did John,
and said, “Look at us.”
He paid attention to them, expecting to receive something from them.
Peter said, “I have neither silver nor gold,
but what I do have I give you:
in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazorean, rise and walk.”
Then Peter took him by the right hand and raised him up,
and immediately his feet and ankles grew strong.
He leaped up, stood, and walked around,
and went into the temple with them,
walking and jumping and praising God.
When all the people saw the man walking and praising God,
they recognized him as the one who used to sit begging
at the Beautiful Gate of the temple,
and they were filled with amazement and astonishment
at what had happened to him.

Responsorial Psalm 19:2-3, 4-5

R. (5)  Their message goes out through all the earth.
The heavens declare the glory of God;
and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
Day pours out the word to day;
and night to night imparts knowledge.
R. Their message goes out through all the earth.
Not a word nor a discourse
whose voice is not heard;
through all the earth their voice resounds,
and to the ends of the world, their message.
R. Their message goes out through all the earth.

Reading 2  GAL 1:11-20

I want you to know, brothers and sisters,
that the Gospel preached by me is not of human origin.
For I did not receive it from a human being, nor was I taught it,
but it came through a revelation of Jesus Christ.

For you heard of my former way of life in Judaism,
how I persecuted the Church of God beyond measure
and tried to destroy it, and progressed in Judaism
beyond many of my contemporaries among my race,
since I was even more a zealot for my ancestral traditions.
But when God, who from my mother’s womb had set me apart
and called me through his grace,
was pleased to reveal his Son to me,
so that I might proclaim him to the Gentiles,
I did not immediately consult flesh and blood,
nor did I go up to Jerusalem
to those who were Apostles before me;
rather, I went into Arabia and then returned to Damascus.
 
Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem
to confer with Cephas and remained with him for fifteen days.
But I did not see any other of the Apostles,
only James the brother of the Lord.
–As to what I am writing to you, behold,
before God, I am not lying.

AlleluiaJN 21:17

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
Lord, you know everything:
you know that I love you.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel   JN 21:15-19

Jesus had revealed himself to his disciples
and, when they had finished breakfast, said to Simon Peter,
“Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?”
Simon Peter answered him, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
Jesus said to him, “Feed my lambs.”
He then said to Simon Peter a second time,
“Simon, son of John, do you love me?”
Simon Peter answered him, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
He said to him, “Tend my sheep.”
He said to him the third time,
“Simon, son of John, do you love me?”
Peter was distressed that he had said to him a third time,
“Do you love me?” and he said to him,
“Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.”
Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.
Amen, amen, I say to you, when you were younger,
you used to dress yourself and go where you wanted;
but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands,
and someone else will dress you
and lead you where you do not want to go.”
He said this signifying by what kind of death he would glorify God.
And when he had said this, he said to him, “Follow me.”
