John’s funeral Vigil will take place in St Leo’s on Tuesday at 7.30, and the Mass will be at 10.00 on Wednesday 14th, the date of his birthday. Our condolences to his widow and family. We had got used to his cheerful chats after Mass on Sunday.

Mass

1 Introit I am the light w Dox


First reading Amos 7:12-1
Amaziah, the priest of Bethel, said to Amos, ‘Go away, seer;’ get back to the land of Judah; earn your bread there, do your prophesying there. We want no more prophesying in Bethel; this is the royal sanctuary, the national temple.’ ‘I was no prophet, neither did I belong to any of the brotherhoods of prophets,’ Amos replied to Amaziah ‘I was a shepherd, and looked after sycamores: but it was the Lord who took me from herding the flock, and the Lord who said, “Go, prophesy to my people Israel.”’

Responsorial Psalm
Psalm 84(85):9-14(Sun15)

Ps 84 DH Grace

 Ps 84: Let us see, O Lord, your mercy, and give us your saving help.

I will hear what the Lord God has to say:   A voice that speaks of peace;
His help is near for those who fear him and his glory will dwell in our land.
Let us see, O Lord, your mercy, and give us your saving help.

 Mercy and faithfulness have met;  Justice and peace have embraced.
Faithfulness shall spring from the earth and justice look down from heaven.
Let us see, O Lord, your mercy, and give us your saving help.

        

The Lord will make us prosper and our earth shall yield its fruit.
Justice shall march before him, and peace shall follow his steps.
Let us see, O Lord, your mercy, and give us your saving help.

Second reading
Ephesians 1:3-1

God chose us in Christ before the world was made

Blessed be God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who has blessed us with all the spiritual blessings of heaven in Christ.
Before the world was made, he chose us, chose us in Christ,
to be holy and spotless, and to live through love in his presence,
determining that we should become his adopted sons, through Jesus Christ
for his own kind purposes, to make us praise the glory of his grace, his free gift to us in the Beloved,
in whom, through his blood, we gain our freedom, the forgiveness of our sins.
Such is the richness of the grace which he has showered on us in all wisdom and insight.
He has let us know the mystery of his purpose,
the hidden plan he so kindly made in Christ from the beginning
to act upon when the times had run their course to the end:
that he would bring everything together under Christ, as head,
everything in the heavens and everything on earth.
And it is in him that we were claimed as God’s own, chosen from the beginning,
under the predetermined plan of the one who guides all things
as he decides by his own will; chosen to be, for his greater glory,
the people who would put their hopes in Christ before he came.
Now you too, in him,
have heard the message of the truth and the good news of your salvation, and have believed it;
and you too have been stamped with the seal of the Holy Spirit of the Promise,
the pledge of our inheritance
which brings freedom for those whom God has taken for his own, to make his glory praised.


Gospel Mark 6:7-1
Jesus made a tour round the villages, teaching. Then he summoned the Twelve and began to send them out in pairs giving them authority over the unclean spirits. And he instructed them to take nothing for the journey except a staff – no bread, no haversack, no coppers for their purses. They were to wear sandals but, he added, ‘Do not take a spare tunic.’ And he said to them, ‘If you enter a house anywhere, stay there until you leave the district. And if any place does not welcome you and people refuse to listen to you, as you walk away shake off the dust from under your feet as a sign to them.’ So they set off to preach repentance; and they cast out many devils, and anointed many sick people with oil and cured them.
