Word for the Weekend: July 12

(If the image is confusing, read this Sunday's gospel!)

This Sunday's gospel (for the 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time) tells us of Jesus sending 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's the time to read over these scriptures as a way to prepare for worship this weekend. The texts and brief commentary on them can be found here. Those of you bringing children to Mass with you will want to check in here to find some tips on helping young ones prepare to hear the Lord's Word this weekend.
