Text of SAINT ANNE¢â‚¬â„¢S CATHOLIC CHURCH BRISTOL, VIRGINIA August...

  • SAINT ANNE’S CATHOLIC CHURCH BRISTOL, VIRGINIA August 14, 2016 Remember St. Anne’s in your Will and Trusts

    God has gathered us here today so that we may be

    strengthened in our faith regardless of the obstacles that we

    face. Being a disciple is difficult and can indeed cause

    division among the people we know. Let us pray for the

    strength to be the best disciples that we can be, and for the

    courage to do God’s will whatever the cost.

    Readings for this week (August 15-20)

    Monday: Revelation 11:19a; 12:1-6a, 10ab;

    1 Corinthians 15:20-27; Luke 1:39-56

    Tuesday: Ezekiel 28:1-10; Mathew 19:23-30

    Wednesday: Ezekiel 34:1-11; Matthew 0:1-16

    Thursday: Ezekiel 36:23-28; Matthew 22:1-14

    Friday: Ezekiel 37:1-14; Matthew 22:34-40

    Saturday: Ezekiel 43:1-7a; Matthew 23:1-12

    Scripture for next Sunday

    (21st Sunday/Ordinary Time)

    Isaiah 66:18-21

    Outcasts will be gathered home by God as a precious

    offering in glory.

    Hebrews 12:5-7, 11-13

    Discipline strengthens what is weak.

    Luke 13:22-30

    The doorway into the kingdom is narrow.

    Both Isaiah and Jesus show us how those whom we least

    expect will be part of God’s saving plan. How are we to fit

    in? Saint Paul tells us that we can start by accepting the

    discipline of God in our lives. Let us listen to these words

    of God next weekend for the clues we need to help make

    God’s kingdom a reality in this world, and to be part of that

    kingdom ourselves.
