FIRST READING: Wis. 18: 6-9 Just as you struck our enemies, you made us glorious by calling us to you.
RESPONSORIAL PSALM: Ps. 33 "Happy are the people the Lord has chosen as his own."
Heb. 11: 1-2, 8-19 We will look for the city designed and built by God.
Mt. 24: 42, 44 "Be watchful and ready: you know not when the Son of Man is coming."
GOSPEL: Lk. 12: 32-48
See that you are prepared. Jesus tells his disciples to be ready like those awaiting the master to return from the wedding feast. Stand ready for the Son of Man shall return at the hour we least expect.
FOCUS: "Be watchful and ready, you know not when the Son is coming." We must be on guard lest our convictions waiver or grow dim. We must always be ready and active in our faith.
REFLECTION: "Until all things become One for you, traced to One source and seen in One act of vision, you cannot find anchorage for the heart, or rest calmly in God. O God, you are the truth; unite me to yourself by an act of unfailing love!" Thomas à Kempis
"I see Paradise has no gate, but whosoever will may enter therein, for God is all mercy and stands with open arms to admit us to His glory. But still I see that the Being of God is so pure (far more than one can imagine) that should a soul see in itself even the least mote of imperfection, it would rather cast itself into a thousand hells than go with that spot into the presence of the Divine Majesty." St. Catherine of Genoa
"To pray does not only mean to stand in prayer. To keep the mind and heart turned towards God and directed to Him-this is already prayer, whatever the position in which one may be. Prayer according to the rule is one thing, and this state of prayer is another. The way to it is to attain the habit of constant remembrance of God, of the last hour and the judgement that follows it. Accustom yourself to this, and all will go well. Every step you take will be inwardly consecrated to God. You must direct your steps according to the commandments; and you know what the commandments are. That is all. It is possible to apply these commandments to every event, and to consecrate all your activities inwardly to God; and then all your life will be dedicated to Him.What more is necessary? Nothing. You see how simple it is."
Theophane the Recluse
APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: We as the Church of Jesus look forward, and we ready ourselves for the future. We also try to understand God through the teaching of past Church leaders. The Church is timeless, just as God's love is beyond time.
An important theme today is the accountability of our actions. Introduce the profession of faith by noting that faith is essential to being ready to meet the Lord. The breaking of the bread could be introduced by declaring that the Eucharist renews our faith and strengthens us to remain awake and alert to God's grace.
Penitential Rite: third form, with second set of invocations.
General Intercessions-
Introduction: Gathered together in Christ as sisters and brothers, let us
call to mind that God is the living bread, the sustenance in our lives.
· For all who have dedicated themselves to God, that he will help them to be faithful to their promise,
· For peace among nations, that God may rid the world of violence,
· 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 use wisely the good things he has given us, that they will lead us closer to him and to the eternal blessings he promises.
Preface: 6th for Sundays in Ordinary Time
The Lord's Prayer: fourth set of sample invitations to prayer.
Prayers over the People: 1, 16
Faith Formation
Death may take us at any moment. The gospel today reveals that we must be vigilant. We must be ready to be in God' presence.
· How can you prepare for the unexpected?
· What does it mean to stay awake?
We need to be accountable for every moment so that we can be ready at all times. Discuss today's gospel and its treatment of how we should live our lives.
Children's Liturgy of the Word
Lead a discussion on responsibility. Ask the children what things they are permitted to do now that they were not allowed to do earlier.
· What responsibilities do we have?
Discuss the concept of staying awake, to paying attention.We should try to pay attention to what we are doing all the time. Are we doing what God wants us to do? Are we being kind to each other? Jesus helps us through the Church, the bible and the Eucharist to be strengthened in God's love.
