Today's Verse:

David Praises God

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:

               ( Daniel 12:1-3 )

The Time of the End

      The angel wearing linen clothes said, "At that time the great angel Michael, who guards your people, will appear. Then there will be a time of troubles, the worst since nations came into exis-tence. When that time comes, all the people of your nation whose name is written in God's book will be saved. Many of those who have already died will live again: some will enjoy eternal life, and some will suffer eternal disgrace. The wise leaders will shine with all the brightness of the sky. And those who have taught many peo-ple to do what is right will shine like the stars forever."

Alternate 1st Reading:

                 ( Psalm 16:5, 8-11 )

A Prayer of Confidence

      You, Lord, are all I have, and you give me all I need; my future is in your hands.
      I am always aware of the Lord's presence; he is near, and nothing can shake me.
      And so I am thankful and glad, and I feel completely secure, because you protect me from the power of death. I have served you faithfully, and you will not abandon me to the world of the dead.
      You will show me the path that leads to life; your presence fills me with joy and brings me pleasure forever.


The 2nd Reading:

             ( Hebrews 10:11-14, 18 )

Christ's Sacrifice Takes Away Sins

      Every Jewish priest performs his services every day and offers the same services many times; but these sacrifices can never take away sins. Christ, however, offered one sacrifice for sins, an offer-ing that is effective forever, and then he sat down at the right side of God. There he now waits until God puts his enemies as a foot-stool under his feet. With one sacrifice, then, he has made perfect forever those who are purified from sin.
So when these have been forgiven, an offering to take away sins is no longer needed.

Today's Gospel According to:

              ( Mark 13:24-32 )

The Coming of the Son of Man

      "In the days after that time of trouble the sun will grow dark, the moon will no longer shine, the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers in space will be driven from their courses. Then the Son of Man will appear, coming in the clouds with great power and glory. He will send the angels out to the four corners of the earth to gather God's chosen people from one end of the world to the other."

The Lesson of the Fig Tree

      "Let the fig tree teach you a lesson. When its branches become green and tender and it starts putting out leaves, you know that summer is near. In the same way, when you see these things hap-pening, you will know that the time is near, ready to begin.
      Remember that all these things will happen before the people now living have all died. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away."

No One Knows the Day or Hour

      "No one knows, however, when that day or hour will come - neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son; only the Father knows. 

This is the word of the Lord

An Interpretation of Today's Readings & Gospel

( By Sr. Joyce Rupp, O.S.M. )

      What is there about shining stars that stirs the human heart? When I was a child, these sparkling pieces of the universe enthral-led me with their mysterious presence. The artificial lights of the nearest town were far away from our farm, so the stars shimmered brilliantly in the night sky. I felt awe and a kind of mysterious union with them, as if the stars were somehow beckoning me. The prophet Daniel must have had a similar appreciation for the stars because he used them as a metaphor to laud men and women who speak and act for justice. Like the stars, these courageous persons pierce the darkness, summoning us to join them in working to change systems that press upon those who are impoverished and disadvantaged. Imagine the light we could bring to dispel the dark-ness of our world if we joined them. We can become a constellation of love if we endeavor toward justice for all.

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
