Word for the weekend: July 15

Image by James Tissot


This Sunday's gospel tells us how Jesus sent out the apostles to preach and his "marching orders" to them - including some details about uniforms!

The first lesson gives us Amos, a simple man the Lord had called to be a prophet who does such a good job that he's banished from the place where he prophesied.

The second lesson, from Ephesians, is offered in a shorter and longer form and includes a great description of how blessed we are to be the people of God.

NOW is the time to spend some time reading over these scriptures and getting to know them as a way to prepare for worship this weekend. The texts and brief commentary on them can be found here and if you're bringing children to Mass with you, here you'll find some tips on helping prepare them to hear the Lord's Word.
