TWENTY-SIXTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

September 27/28, 2014

FOOD FOR THE WEEK

 

Reading I                             Ezekiel 18.25-28

Responsorial Psalm:             Lord, be mindful of your mercy.

Reading II                            Philippians 2.1-11

Gospel:                                Matthew 21.28-32

 

·         We all want more than talk.  We look for integrity in our lives and in the lives of others.  We find it hard to live with hypocrisy.  Jesus seems to accept that we will not always do good willingly.  This is spiritual and human realism.

·         Christian commitment is walking with Jesus.  It is being in the world like Jesus, bringing his attitudes of compassion and justice with us.  It is trying to affect the world as he did.

Prayer to the Holy Family for the Synod

 

Jesus, Mary and Joseph,

in you we contemplate

the splendour of true love,

to you we turn with trust.

 

Holy Family of Nazareth,

grant that our families too

may be places of communion and prayer,

authentic schools of the Gospel

and small domestic Churches.

 

Holy Family of Nazareth,

may families never again

experience violence, rejection and division:

may all who have been hurt or scandalized

find ready comfort and healing.

Holy Family of Nazareth,

may the approaching Synod of Bishops

make us once more mindful

of the sacredness and inviolability of the family,

and its beauty in God’s plan.

 

Jesus, Mary and Joseph,

graciously hear our prayer.

 

Amen.
