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:

             ( Jeremiah 31:7-9 )


Israel's Return Home

      The Lord says,
      "Sing with joy for Israel, the greatest of nations. Sing your song of praise, 'The Lord has saved his people; He has rescued all who are left.' I will bring them from the north and gather them from the ends of the earth. The blind and the lame will come with them, pregnant women and those about to give birth. They will come back a great nation. My people will return weeping, praying as I lead them back. I will guide them to streams of water, on a smooth road where they will not stumble. I am like a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my oldest son."

Alternate 1st Reading:

               ( Psalm 126:1-6 )

A Prayer for Deliverance

      When the Lord brought us back to Jerusalem, it was like a dream! How we laughed, how we sang for joy! Then the other nations said about us, "The Lord did great things for them." indeed he did great things for us; how happy we were!
      Lord, make us prosperous again, just as the rain brings water back to dry riverbeds. Let those who wept as they planted their crops, gather the harvest with joy!
      Those who wept as they went out carrying the seed will come back singing for joy, as they bring in the harvest.

 

The 2nd Reading:

               ( Hebrews 5:1-6 )

Jesus the Great High Priest

      Every high priest is chosen from his fellowmen and appointed to serve God on their behalf to offer sacrifices and offerings for sins. Since he himself is weak in many ways, he is able to be gentle with those who are ignorant and make mistakes. And because he himself is weak, he must offer sacrifices not only for the sins of other people but also for his own sins. No one chooses for himself the honor of being a high priest. It is only by God's call that a man is made a high priest - just as Aaron was.
      In the same way, Christ did not take upon himself the honor of being a high priest. Instead, God said to him, "You are my Son; to-day I have become your Father."
      He also said in another place, "You will be a priest forever, in the priestly order of Melchizedek."



Today's Gospel According to:

            ( Mark 10:46-52 )


Jesus Heals Blind Bartimaeus



      They came o Jericho, and as Jesus was leaving with his disciples and a large crowd, a blind beggar named Bartimaeus son of Timaeus was sitting by the road. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, "Jesus! Son of David! Have mercy on me!"
      Many of the people scolded him and told him to be quiet. But he shouted even more loudly, "Son of David, have mercy on me!"
      Jesus stopped and said, "Call him."
     So they called the blind man. "Cheer up! they said. "Get up, he is calling you."
      So he threw off his cloak, jumped up, and came to Jesus.
      "What do you want me to do for you?" Jesus asked him.
      "Teacher," the blind man answered, "I want to see again.
      "Go," Jesus told him, "your faith has made you well."


This is the word of the Lord





An Interpretation of Today's Readings & Gospel



( By Amy Welborn )


      Lining the walls of the museum at the shrine to Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico was something I had never seen before. Subsequent research revealed that they are a common sight in Latin America and some parts of Europe, but that day, they were new to me: ex-voto paintings.
      I knew of ex-voto charms and plaques and even blue and pink ribbons left in chapels in gratitude for new life, but I'd never seen this - small primitive hand painted scenes depicting how the prayers of the sick, the injured and the imprisoned had been answered. They were at once charming, raw, honest and so expressive of deep gratitude, I couldn't help but pause, examine my own life, remember answered prayers and the healing grace of God - and follow Him on the way, grateful.
      Lord, thank you for all you have done for me.

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
