READINGS FOR OCTOBER 11, 2020
1ST Reading—Isaiah 25: 6-10a—Isaiah prophesied, “On this mountain the Lord of hosts will provide…a feast of rich food and choice wines…The Lord God will wipe away the tears from every face…the hand of the Lord will rest on this mountain.”
Responsorial Psalm: #23—“Shepherd me, O God, beyond my wants, beyond my fears, from death unto life.”
2nd Reading—Philippians 4: 12-14, 19-20—Paul wrote, “I have learned the secret of being well fed and of going hungry.” When people share each other’s hardships, God supplies their needs fully in Christ Jesus.
Alleluia—“Alleluia! May the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ enlighten the eyes of our hearts, so that we may know what is the hope that belongs to our call. Alleluia!”
Gospel—Matthew 22: 1-14—Jesus likened God’s reign to a great wedding banquet that a king gave for his son. Many were invited; some ignored the invitation. One guest was thrown out for disrespectful dress. In God’s reign, “many are invited, but few are chosen.”
Prayers of the Faithful
1) Let us pray for the Church:
God, Lord of heaven and earth, you invite all to your banquet.
May your people, the Church, come to the table you spread, and welcome all others.
2) Let us pray for peace in our world:
Destroy forever the web of war woven over the nations, O God.
May the world’s hungry people benefit from the generosity of their rich neighbors.
3) Let us pray for those who suffer with disabilities:
God and author of life, you create us in your own image. Help us respect our brothers and sisters who are physically, mentally, or emotionally disabled. Remove the barriers that keep us apart.
4) Let us pray for the sick:
Compassionate healer of all, lift up those brought low my illness and pain, especially —
Joyce Stewart Jon Barber
Cecily Siring Holly Francis Tony & Betty Morici
Dolores Cumming Cooper Pavkovich Alex Fabian Family
Elena Perea Dot Tebelman Marge Flanigan John Zubalik Sister Judy Jones Jim Byers
And for all who have asked for our prayers.
5) Let us remember the dead:
Shepherd God, you destroy death forever. Raise up our loved ones, especially — Andrew Arnoldy, father of Alan and…
(5:00 Mass) Brandon Rodak
(8:30 Mass) Otylia Podalak
(10:30 Mass) Ricardo Lopez, Jonathon Davis
6) Let us pray for our personal needs:
We pray, loving God, for those lacking food, shelter, clothing, or meaningful work. Bless those who serve the needs of others.
We pray to the Lord…
