Mass from the Reserved Sacrament will be celebrated on the Fourth Sunday after Pentecost, officiated by The Rev. Sylvia L. Howard, deacon. Organist is Barbara Crain.
THE FOURTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST: Proper 8A, Track 2 (July 2)
The first lesson is from the prophet Jeremiah, in which the prophet declares that preaching peace only without mentioning the punishment for sin is only delivering part of the message. The psalm is a portion of Psalm 89, which expresses delight in the fullness of God’s love. The second lesson is from Paul’s Letter to the church in Rome, and urges believers not to follow sinful desires but to find deep satisfaction by being devoted to God’s ways. Finally, the Gospel lesson is from Matthew, and presents Jesus’ teaching about how so small a thing as giving a cup of cold water can make the difference to finding one’s reward. Throughout all the lessons there is the theme that following God’s will in our lives delivers believers from confusion and sorrows, and leads them to a state of confidence and satisfaction.
There will be no weekday Masses since Father David will be away on vacation.
