Today's Verse:

                ( Jeremiah 31:3 )

Israel's Return Home

      "I appeared to them from far away. People of Israel, I have always loved you, so I continue to show you my constant love."

Entrance Hymn:


Let Us Pray

Recite The Doxology:

      Glory be to the Father, to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever.  Amen.
 

Recite The Act of Contrition:

      O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest in all my sins, not only because of the loss of heaven and the pains of hell, but because they offended You, my God, who art all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Your grace, to confess my sins, do penance, and amend my life.  Amen.
 

Recite The Apostles Creed:

      I believe in God, the Father Almighty. Creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into Hell, and on the third day he rose again in ful- fillment of the scriptures. He ascended into Heaven and sits at the right side of God the Father Almighty. He will come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.   Amen.



The 1st Reading:

              ( Ezekiel 17:22-24 )

God's Promise of Hope

      This is what the Sovereign Lord says:
      "I will take the top of a tall cedar and break off a tender sprout; I will plant it on a high mountain, on Israel's highest mountain. It will grow branches and bear seed and become a magnificent cedar. Birds of every kind will live there and find shelter in its shade. All the trees in the land will know That I am the Lord. I cut down the tall trees and make small trees grow tall. I wither up the green trees and make the dry trees become green.
      I, the Lord, have spoken. I will do what I have said I would do."

Alternate 1st Reading:

              ( Psalm 92:2-3, 13-16 )

A Song of Praise

      To proclaim your constant love every morning and your faith-fulness every night, with the music of stringed instruments and with melody on the harp.
      They are like trees planted in the house of the Lord, that flour-ish in the Temple of our God, that still bear fruit in old age and are always green and strong. This shows that the Lord is just, that there is no wrong in my protector.

 

The 2nd Reading:

                ( 2 Corinthians 5:6-10 )

Living by Faith

      So we are always full of courage. We know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord's home. For our life is a matter of faith, not of sight. We are full of courage and would much prefer to leave our home in the body and be at home with the Lord. More than anything else, however, we want to please him, whether in our home here or there. For all of us must appear before Christ, to be judged by him. We will each receive what we deserve, according to everything we have done, good or bad, in our bodily life.



Today's Gospel According to:

              ( Mark 4:26-34)

The Parable of the Growing Seed

      Jesus went on to say, "The Kingdom of God is like this. A man scatters seed in his field. He sleeps at night, is up and about during the day, and all the while the seeds are sprouting and growing. Yet he does not know how it happens. The soil itself makes the plants grow and bear fruit; first the tender stalk appears, then the head, and finally the head full of grain. When the grain is ripe, the man starts cutting it with his sickle, because harvest time has come."

The Parable of the Mustard Seed

      "What shall we say the Kingdom of God is like?" asked Jesus. "What parable shall we use to explain it? It is like this. A man takes a mustard seed, the smallest seed in the world, and plants it in the ground. After a while it grows up and becomes the biggest of all plants. It puts out such large branches that the birds come and make their nests in its shade."
      Jesus preached his message to the people, using many other parables like these; he told them as much as they could understand. He would not speak to them without using parables, but when he was alone with his disciples, he would explain everything to them.


This is the word of the Lord


An Interpretation of Today's Readings & Gospel
( By Sr. Bridget Haase, O.S.U. )

      "Always raise the blinds with reverent anticipation," Stella Marie told me. Given this household chore when she was six, Stella, now 80 years old, reminds other people what her mother told her. "God has been up all night custom planning the next 24 hours," she said with a wing and a smile, "so even as rain pours, fog hangs heavy, or sun shines, proclaim God's kindness at dawn."
      "When you go to bed at night, close the blinds with gratitude. Angels watch over you and God blesses your day of living in the moment, trusting in divine care each minute and desiring to see him everywhere. The day may have been hard, but you were, by grace, steadfast until bedtime. So sleep well and proclaim his faithfulness in the night."
      Vibrant Stella Marie offered me a concrete way to remember Today's Psalm bidding: proclaiming God's kindness at dawn and divine faithfulness at night - a blessed way to live in hope and thanksgiving!


Recite: The Lord's Prayer 

      Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it tis in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but, deliver us from evil.  Amen.

 
  May the Peace of the Lord be with You
