Word for the Weekend - July 26


This coming weekend we celebrate Eucharist on the 17th Sunday in Ordinary Time. The scriptures offer us a summertime fish fry both in the lesson from Second Kings and in the gospel from John.



There's plenty to eat here - more than enough - so bring your friends and family!

Between the two stories of feeding the multitude comes a "word from our sponsor" in Ephesians on the source and importance of our unity as Christians, sharing one faith, one Lord, one baptism and one Father of us all.

The scriptures for the day can be found here along with background material on these texts. There's a young boy in the gospel story and you may be bringing a young girl or boy to Mass this weekend. If that's the case, look here for help in preparing them to hear the Word.
