Updated weekly (Sunday 17 October 2021):
29th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year B) “To serve and not be served.”
James and John, the sons of Zebedee had walked the streets of Palestine with Jesus; they had heard his teaching, yet they still wanted the best places in his kingdom. It is perhaps only natural but Jesus’ message is quite simple – his followers must be servants, for he himself came not to be served but to serve.
|Lord Jesus Christ||I will be with you|
|A new commandment||Taize: Ubi Caritas|

Prayer: Almighty ever-living God, only support of our human weakness, look with compassion upon the sorrowful condition of your children who suffer because of this pandemic; relieve the pain of the sick, give strength to those who care for them, welcome into your peace those who have died and, throughout this time of tribulation, grant that we may all find comfort in your merciful love. Through Christ our Lord.
The Act of Spiritual Communion (please click on the image) – May we grow in appreciation of the Eucharist; may those who have lapsed from the practice of their faith return to it with conviction and gratitude. For our young people, that in a world of entertainment and distraction they may experience moments of reflection in which they can draw closer to God and discern the direction and meaning of their lives. Lord in your mercy hear our prayer.
