Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Lectionary: 101

Reading 1EZ 2:2-5

As the LORD spoke to me, the spirit entered into me
and set me on my feet,
and I heard the one who was speaking say to me:
Son of man, I am sending you to the Israelites,
rebels who have rebelled against me;
they and their ancestors have revolted against me to this very day.
Hard of face and obstinate of heart
are they to whom I am sending you.
But you shall say to them: Thus says the LORD GOD!
And whether they heed or resist—for they are a rebellious house—
they shall know that a prophet has been among them.

Responsorial PsalmPS 123:1-2, 2, 3-4

R. (2cd) Our eyes are fixed on the Lord, pleading for his mercy.
To you I lift up my eyes
who are enthroned in heaven —
As the eyes of servants
are on the hands of their masters.
R. Our eyes are fixed on the Lord, pleading for his mercy.
As the eyes of a maid
are on the hands of her mistress,
So are our eyes on the LORD, our God,
till he have pity on us.
R. Our eyes are fixed on the Lord, pleading for his mercy.
Have pity on us, O LORD, have pity on us,
for we are more than sated with contempt;
our souls are more than sated
with the mockery of the arrogant,
with the contempt of the proud.
R. Our eyes are fixed on the Lord, pleading for his mercy.

Reading 22 COR 12:7-10

Brothers and sisters:
That I, Paul, might not become too elated,
because of the abundance of the revelations,
a thorn in the flesh was given to me, an angel of Satan,
to beat me, to keep me from being too elated.
Three times I begged the Lord about this, that it might leave me,
but he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you,
for power is made perfect in weakness.”
I will rather boast most gladly of my weaknesses,
in order that the power of Christ may dwell with me.
Therefore, I am content with weaknesses, insults,
hardships, persecutions, and constraints,
for the sake of Christ;
for when I am weak, then I am strong.

AlleluiaCF. LK 4:18

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
for he sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

GospelMK 6:1-6

Jesus departed from there and came to his native place, accompanied by his disciples.
When the sabbath came he began to teach in the synagogue,
and many who heard him were astonished.
They said, “Where did this man get all this?
What kind of wisdom has been given him?
What mighty deeds are wrought by his hands!
Is he not the carpenter, the son of Mary,
and the brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon?
And are not his sisters here with us?”
And they took offense at him.
Jesus said to them,
“A prophet is not without honor except in his native place
and among his own kin and in his own house.”
So he was not able to perform any mighty deed there,
apart from curing a few sick people by laying his hands on them.
He was amazed at their lack of faith.


The effort to improve the Summer Church property was launched last weekend. If you didn’t get the bulletin insert, you can download it HERE.

To order a plaque, fill out the form and mail it in with your check, or used the convenient online PayPal button on our Home page.

Update on Summer Church:

Photo taken July 6, 2018 of new electrical panel installation for Summer Church.

The former panel was over 50 years old and was recently vandalized. Proceeds from the sale of Memorial Plaques will help offset expenses improving the Outdoor Church. It is hoped improvements will increase the number of weddings and services and deter the vandals.

We are blessed today to welcome a new infant member to our church in the beautiful sacrament of baptism. Listen carefully to Fr. Luis’ words and pray to renew your own baptismal vows…so joyful to be a member of our holy Catholic Church!


Part 2

Two angels (Diana and Sophia) waiting to put their money in the collection!

Baptism continued, Part 3

Let us pray for our young people and provide them love and hope in this confusing time.

As the mass ends, Fr. Luis calls the parents to the altar to give them a final blessing – much needed today in a world where so many dangers threaten our young children! And you will see our two angels step forward. May God bless this family and keep them safe, happy and healthy!
