TODAY’S GOSPEL READING (LUKE 17:11-19)

TODAY’S GOSPEL READING (LUKE 17:11-19)

On the way to Jerusalem Jesus travelled along the border between Samaria and Galilee. As he entered one of the villages, ten lepers came to meet him. They stood some way off and called to him, “Jesus! Master! Take pity on us.”

When he saw them he said, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” Now as they were going away they were cleansed. Finding himself cured, one of them turned back praising God at the top of his voice and threw himself at the feet of Jesus and thanked him. The man was a Samaritan.

This made Jesus say, “Were not all ten made clean? The other nine, where are they? It seems that no one has come back to give praise to God, except this foreigner.” And he said to the man, “Stand up and go your way. Your faith has saved you.”

V. The Gospel of the Lord.
R. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

ALMIGHTY EVER-LIVING GOD…

ALMIGHTY EVER-LIVING GOD…

SUNDAY MASS, COLLECT – 27th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME, YEAR C

Almighty ever-living God,
who in the abundance
of your kindness
surpass the merits and the desires
of those who entreat you,
pour out your mercy upon us
to pardon what conscience dreads
and to give what prayer does not dare to ask.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God,
for ever and ever.

AT THE HOUR OF DEATH THE MASSES YOU HAVE HEARD WILL BE YOUR GREATEST CONSOLATION

AT THE HOUR OF DEATH THE MASSES YOU HAVE HEARD WILL BE YOUR GREATEST CONSOLATION

THE HOLY MASS

At the hour of death the Masses you have heard will be your greatest consolation. Every Mass will go with you to judgment and plead for pardon.

At every Mass you can diminish the temporal punishment due to your sins, more or less according to your fervour.

Assisting devoutly at Mass you render to the Sacred Humanity of Our Lord the greatest homage. You afford to the souls in Purgatory the greatest possible relief.

You are preserved from many dangers and misfortunes which would otherwise have befallen you.

You shorten your Purgatory by every Mass.

Every Mass wins you a higher degree of sanctifying grace here, and glory in heaven hereafter.

You are blessed in your temporal goods and affairs.

When you hear Mass and offer the Holy Sacrifice in honour of any particular Saint or Angel, thank God for the favour bestowed on him, etc., etc.

One Mass heard during your life will be of more benefit to you than many heard for you after your death. Therefore, try to hear Mass every day.

– From: St Anthony’s Treasury, 1916

TODAY’S RESPONSORIAL PSALM (PSALM 121)

TODAY’S RESPONSORIAL PSALM (PSALM 121)

First Sunday of Advent, Year A

R. I rejoiced when I heard them say: ‘Let us go to God’s house.’

 

I rejoiced when I heard them say:

‘Let us go to God’s house.’

And now our feet are standing

within your gates, O Jerusalem. (R.)

 

It is there that the tribes go up,

the tribes of the Lord.

For Israel’s law it is

there to praise the Lord’s name.

There were set the thrones of judgement

of the house of David. (R.)

 

For the peace of Jerusalem pray:

‘Peace be to your homes!

May peace reign in your walls,

in your palaces, peace!’ (R.)

 

For love of my brethren and friends

I say: ‘Peace upon you!’

For love of the house of the Lord

I will ask for your good. (R.)

BIBLE READING II (2 THESSALONIANS 3:7-12); NOVEMBER 13

BIBLE READING II (2 THESSALONIANS 3:7-12); NOVEMBER 13

Week 33 of Year C, Sunday

We don’t get any nearer to perfection… simply by sitting and waiting.

You know how you are supposed to imitate us: now we were not idle when we were with you, nor did we ever have our meals at anyone’s table without paying for them; no, we worked night and day, slaving and straining, so as not to be a burden on any of you. This was not because we had no right to be, but in order to make ourselves an example for you to follow.

We gave you a rule when we were with you: not to let anyone have any food if he refused to do any work. Now we hear that there are some of you who are living in idleness, doing no work themselves but interfering with everyone else’s. In the Lord Jesus Christ, we order and call on people of this kind to go on quietly working and earning the food that they eat.

V. The word of the Lord. R. Thanks be to God.

RESPONSORIAL PSALM, NOVEMBER 13

RESPONSORIAL PSALM, NOVEMBER 13

Week 33 of Year C, Sunday – Psalm 97

R. The Lord comes to rule the peoples with fairness.

 

Sing psalms to the Lord with the harp,

with the sound of music.

With trumpets and the sound of the horn

acclaim the King, the Lord. (R.)

 

Let the sea and all within it, thunder

the world, and all its peoples.

Let the rivers clap their hands

and the hills ring out their joy

at the presence of the Lord. (R.)

 

For the Lord comes,

he comes to rule the earth.

He will rule the world with justice

and the peoples with fairness. (R.)
