Last chance to ponder the Word before hearing it!

For this weekend's Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time you will find the scripture texts and background material on them here and hints for helping to prepare children to hear the Word here.

The gospel passage from Mark offers the story of the cure of the blind man, Bartimaeus. The first lesson (Jeremiah) pairs with this story as it references the Lord gathering his own from the end of the world, with the blind and the lame in their midst.

The second lesson is another in a series of readings from the Letter to the Hebrews. The text refers to the Day of Atonement which our Jewish friends celebrated just recently.
