Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time


"The Holy Spirit always leads and guides us. If we trust this, we will find ourselves doing things we never thought we could do. Always seek the path to joy and love. They keep us from falling victim to our fears and from seeking the nostalgic crutches we think we need to achieve a sense of well-being and happiness."

Prayer for Vocation

Loving God, you sent your Spirit on the apostles to continue the

mission of your Son, Jesus. We pray that you will now send your

spirit on our bishops, priests, deacons, sisters and brothers,

filling them with zeal to evangelize your people. We pray for all

that are presently discerning your call, those in vocational formation

and those preparing them. We pray that you bless our diocese

with more priests and deacons, and religious congregations

with new members. Mary our Mother and patroness intercede

for us that our pastoral Needs may be fulfilled through Him who

is Lord for ever and ever.

A reading from the Book of the Prophet Jeremiah (20:10-13)

(He has rescued the life of the poor from the power of the wicked)

J eremiah said: “I hear the whisperings of many: ‘Terror on every side! Denounce!

Let us denounce him!’ All those who were my friends are on the

watch for any misstep of mine. ‘Perhaps he will be trapped; then we can

prevail, and take our vengeance on him.’ But the Lord is with me, like a

mighty champion: my persecutors will stumble, they will not triumph.

In their failure they will be put to utter shame, to lasting, unforgettable

confusion. O Lord of hosts, you who test the just, who probe mind and

heart, let me witness the vengeance you take on them, for to you I have

entrusted my cause. Sing to the Lord, / praise the Lord, for he has rescued

the life of the poor from the power of the wicked!”

—The Word of the Lord.

R. Thanks be to God.

RESPONSORIAL PSALM (69:8-10, 14, 17, 33-35)

R. Lord, in your great love, answer me. (69:14c)

For your sake I bear insult,

and shame covers my face.

I have become an outcast to my brothers,

a stranger to my children,

because zeal for your house consumes me, and the insults of those who

blaspheme you fall upon me. (R)

I pray to you, O Lord,

for the time of your favor, O God!

In your great kindness answer me

with your constant help.

Answer me, O Lord, for bounteous

is your kindness;

in your great mercy turn toward me. (R)

“See, you lowly ones, and be glad;

you who seek God, may your hearts revive!

For the Lord hears the poor,

and his own who are in bonds he spurns not.

Let the heavens and the earth praise him,

the seas and whatever moves in them!” (R)

The Liturgy of the Word


A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Romans (5:12-15)

(The gift is not like the transgression)

Brothers and sisters: Through one man sin entered the world, and

through sin, death, and thus death came to all men, inasmuch

as all sinned—for up to the time of the law, sin was in the world,

though sin is not accounted when there is no law. But death

reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who did not sin

after the pattern of the trespass of Adam, who is the type of the

one who was to come.

But the gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of

the one the many died, how much more did the grace of God and

the gracious gift of the one man Jesus Christ overflow for the many.

—The Word of the Lord.

R. Thanks be to God.

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION (John 15:26b, 27a)

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

The Spirit of truth will testify to me, says the Lord;

and you also will testify. (R)


A reading from the holy Gospel according to Matthew (10:26-33)

(Do not be afraid of those who kill the body)

Jesus said to the Twelve: “Fear no one. Nothing is concealed that will

not be revealed, nor secret that will not be known. What I say to you

in the darkness, speak in the light; what you hear whispered, proclaim

on the housetops. And do not be afraid of those who kill the body

but cannot kill the soul; rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy

both soul and body in Gehenna. Are not two sparrows sold for a small

coin? Yet not one of them falls to the ground without your Father’s

knowledge. Even all the hairs of your head are counted. So do not be

afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. Everyone who acknowledges

me before others I will acknowledge before my heavenly

Father. But whoever denies me before others, I will deny before my

heavenly Father.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

R. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

The Nicene Creed

I believe in one God, the Father almighty,

maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.

I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born

of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God

from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;

through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation

he came down from heaven, (bow your head) and by the Holy Spirit

was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. (lift your head)

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death

and was buried, and rose againon the third day in accordance with the

Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand

of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the

dead and his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from

the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored

and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.

I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism

for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of

the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen

The Liturgy of the Eucharist

PRAYER Over The Offerings

Let us pray (pause)

Receive, O Lord, the sacrifice of

conciliation and praise and grant

that, cleansed by its action, we

may make offering of a heart

pleasing to you.Through Christ

our Lord.

R. Amen.


(Psalm 145 (144):15)

due season.

Hail Mary

Hail, Mary, full of grace,the Lord is with thee.Blessed art

thou among womenand blessed is the fruit of thywomb,

and at the hour of our death.


Prayer to St. Michael

St. Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against

the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly

pray; and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of

God, thrust into Hell Satan and the other evil spirits who prowl about the

world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

Saint of the Week

St. THomas More

(February 7,1478 – July 6, 1535)

His belief that no lay ruler has jurisdiction over the

Church of Christ cost Thomas More his life.

Beheaded on Tower Hill, London, on July 6, 1535, More

steadfastly refused to approve King Henry VIII’s divorce and remarriage and establishment of the

Church of England.

Described as “a man for all seasons,” More was a literary scholar, eminent lawyer, gentleman, father

of four children, and chancellor of England. An intensely spiritual man, he would not support the king’s

divorce from Catherine of Aragon in order to marry Anne Boleyn. Nor would he acknowledge Henry as

supreme head of the Church in England, breaking with Rome, and denying the pope as head.

More was committed to the Tower of London to await trial for treason: not swearing to the Act of

Succession and the Oath of Supremacy. Upon conviction, More declared he had all the councils of

Christendom and not just the council of one realm to support him in the decision of his conscience.
