The Liturgy for Sunday 7th August 2022

NINETEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

Our Soul is Waiting on the Lord

Today we are warned against complacency. It is all too easy to think that we are 'all right'. But we need to be ready to answer his call whenever it may come.

The Readings:

Wisdom 18:6-9

Hebrews 11:1-28-19

Gospel: Luke 12:32-48

Collect:

Almighty ever-living God,

whom, taught by the Holy Spirit,

we dare to call our Father, bring, we pray,

to perfection in our hearts the spirit of

adoption as your sons and daughters,

that we may merit to enter into the

inheritance which you have promised.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

THE ASSUMPTION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY

Jesus, born of Mary, has conquered sin and death. Mary has already shared in her Son's victory by being taken up to heaven. We ask her intercession that we be found worthy to join her in her Son's kingdom.

The Readings:

1 Corinthians 15:20-27

Gospel: Luke 1:39-56

Almighty ever-living God,

who assumed the Immaculate Virgin Mary,

the Mother of your Son, body and soul into heavenly glory, grant, we pray, that, always attentive to the things that are above, we may merit to be sharers of her glory.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
