3rd Sunday In Ordinary Time

This Sunday is called the Word of God Sunday reminding us of the purpose of reading the scriptures from the Bible. It is in our participation in the Mass that in the first part we listen to God speaking to us through words, stories and in instructions. A reminder of the pattern –

From the Old Testament

The Psalm – one of the 150 in the Book of Psalms

From the New Testament – an instructional Reading

The Gospel of St Matthew

The Homily

Bidding Prayers

A reminder to all who read at Mass that we are called to minister the Word for the People to help them be nourished by what they hear.

As Bishop Richard describes in his video Podcast, reflecting on the Scriptures is a powerful way to pray – a way described as Lectio Divina -reading, reflecting and responding..,
