Introduction

“It is important to celebrate the end of things, and not just the
beginnings.’’

Good morning my dear brothers and sisters in Christ!


Today, we gather once again to celebrate the Holy
Eucharist. We are now in the 34th Week in Ordinary time, and it
is the last day of the present Liturgical year.
In today’s Gospel, St. Luke narrated that Jesus said, “ Be
on your guard, let not your hearts be weighed down with a life
of pleasure, drunkenness and wordly cares.” It has not come
upon us suddenly for a while, now the readings have had an
onimous note, a kind of foreboding. If we do not celebrate the
end, it will not the fully end, and therefore there will be no fresh
beginning.
Please all stand and let us joyfully sing our entrance hymn,
together with our mass presider,
Rev. Fr. Rey Amora.

Prayer of the Faithful


Coming together as God’s people we confidently bring our needs before
the father, confident that he will grant our request.

task it is to stir our hope in a better world may be guided by the
