The Liturgy for Sunday 26th June 2022

THIRTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

You were Called to Freedom

O God, who through the grace of adoption

chose us to be children of light, grant,

we pray, that we may not be wrapped in

the darkness of error but always be seen

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.
