FIRST READING: Is. 66: 18-21
They will gather all your brothers
and sisters from all the nations.
The Lord says to Isaiah that he will gather the nations and give them a sign.
Ps. 117 "Go out to the whole world, and proclaim the Good News."
Heb. 12: 5-7, 11-13 The Lord disciplines those he loves.
Jn. 14: 6 "I am the way, the truth, and the life, says the Lord; no one comes to the Father, except through me."
GOSPEL: Lk. 13: 22-30
"People from the east and the west will come to take their place in the kingdom of God."
Making his way to Jerusalem, Jesus continued to teach in the towns and villages. His message was to enter the narrow door. Many will try, but few will succeed.
FOCUS: "People from the east and the west will come to take their place in the kingdom of God."
The kingdom is open to all yet the door is narrow, yielding only to those who adhere to the truths of the gospel.
"Enter eagerly into the treasure-house that lies within you, and so you will see the treasure-house of heaven: for the two are the same, and there is but one single entry to them both. The ladder that leads to the Kingdom is hidden within you, and is found in your own soul. Dive into yourself and in your soul you will discover the rungs by which to ascend." St. Isaac the Syrian
"Those things, good Lord, that we pray for, Give us thy grace to labor for." St. Thomas More
"Even though the poor are often rough and unrefined, we must not judge them from external appearances nor from the mental gifts they seem to have received. On the contrary, if you consider the poor in the light of faith, then you will observe that they are taking the place of the Son of God who chose to be poor. Although in his passion he almost lost the appearance of a man and was considered a fool by the Gentiles and a stumbling block to the Jews, he showed them that his mission was to preach to the poor." St. Vincent de Paul
APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: The first reading, the psalm, and the gospel develop the theme of the universality of the promise of salvation. Introduce the liturgy by proclaiming that the kingdom of God has been opened to all through baptism. The door is narrow but the Eucharist strengthens us to enter and renews the covenant that assures us of salvation. Introduce the Lord's Prayer by reflecting that we as a community desire to bring about the kingdom and there is but one way, through God's love.
Introduction: Let us pray with hu-mility, simplicity, and confidence to God our Father, who is in our midst and lives among us:
· For the holy Church of God, that the
Lord guide and protect it,
· For all peoples of the world, that the Lord unite them in peace and harmony,
· For all our sisters and brothers in need, that the Lord assist them,
· That our community may have the faith and strength to bear witness to Christ's presence,
Preface: 1 or 8 for Sundays in Ordinary Time
Prayers over the People: 9 or 24
· What passage stands out the most in today's gospel?
Discuss the seemingly opposite precepts of covenant vs. salvation for all. As baptized Christians we enter into a covenant with God which is a promise of salvation. This promise is not exclusive to a certain group. It is exclusive to those who act in certain ways, that is with love and wisdom.
· How do you feel about all peoples being offered salvation?
And if they refuse God's offer, then what? Do you then hate them? No. You pray for them and wish them well.
· How do the liturgy and the sacraments help us in developing the bond between us and God?
Children's Liturgy of the Word
· What does it mean to keep a promise?
· Why is it so important?
· Why is it also important to understand what is promised?
Jesus promised us peace, but it a peace we have to achieve ourselves by living the way he told us to, that is, by loving and being kind to everyone. Jesus requires us to actively seek His Peace, by means of love and mercy. Jesus promises us we will enter into God's kingdom by being like Him, full of love and mercy.
