ASK AND YOU WILL RECEIVE

Liturgical Colour: 

Acts. 18:23-28 & Jn. 16:23-28

Jesus came to redeem humanity and to teach us about His Father and how we might come to live with Him in Heaven. But what He has to say can only be revealed gradually. He speaks to each of us in a personal way, encouraging us to seek more information so that we can gain a better knowledge of God.

CHRIST LIVES WITH US ON OUR JOURNEY

Liturgical Colour: 

Acts. 18:1-8 & Jn. 16:16-20

"When You walked at the head of Your people, O God, and lived with them on their journey, the earth shook at Your presence." These words from the Entrance Antiphon set the theme of today's Mass, referring to the Exodus from Egyptian slavery. “Lived with them on their journey” are the key words.

THE SPIRIT WORKS IN HIS OWN TIME

Liturgical Colour: 

Acts. 17:15-18:1 & Jn. 16:12-15

Standing before the Council of Athens Paul used all his powers of persuasion, knowing the Greeks loved debate end argument. He sought to convince them by careful reasoning, beginning with what they already knew and moving towards what was yet unknown to them. He managed to convert a handful of notable Athenians but many greeted his words with contemptuous laughter. On the face of it his preaching mission was not a great success!

SALVATION COMES THROUGH BELIEF IN JESUS

Liturgical Colour: 

Acts. 16:22-34 & Jn. 16:5-11

The response to the psalm, "You stretch out Your hand and save me, O Lord” sums up the theme of today's readings. God reaches out to save each one of us, and they show how His Spirit acts in different ways according to our needs.

THAT YOUR FAITH MAY NOT BE SHAKEN

Liturgical Colour: 

Acts. 16:11-15 & Jn. 15:26-16:4

Some you win, some you lose. As the apostles went out preaching the good news they must have had a mixed reception. Today's story from the Acts of the Apostles is a celebration of success. Paul was able to convert a Roman lady named Lydia, and all her household, and she welcomed him and his companions into her home.

WHAT IS TRUE FRIENDSHIP

Liturgical Colour: 

John 15:9-17.

The word 'friend' is one of the most beautiful in human language. None of us is so strong and self-sufficient that we can live life at its best without the strength of friendship. And in today's Gospel Jesus tells us that we are not servants but His friends. What are the basic elements of friendship?
