Today’s Scripture Themes
The God who comes is a loving Father; we are the work of his hands. Our hope in Christ will strengthen us to await steady and without blame the day of his coming. We are warned against complacency, taking God’s gifts for granted. Our God is watching over us; he is the careful potter, the loving father, the good shepherd, the faithful one.

FIRST READING

A reading from the prophet Isaiah 63:16-17; 64:1. 3-8
Oh that you would tear the heavens open and some down.


You, Lord, yourself are our Father,
Our Redeemer is your ancient name.
Why, Lord, leave us to stray from your ways
and harden our hearts against fearing you?
Return, for the sake of your servants,
the tribes of your inheritance.
Oh that you would tear the heavens open and some down
– at your Presence, such as no one has ever heard of before.
No ear has heard,
no eye has seen
any god but you act like this
for those who trust him.
You guide those who act with integrity
and keep your ways in mind.
You were angry when we were sinners;
we had long been rebels against you.
We were all like men unclean,
all that integrity of ours like filthy clothing.
We have all withered like leaves
and our sins blew us away like the wind.
No one invoked your name
or roused himself to catch hold of you.
For you hid your face from us
and gave us up to the power of our sins.
And yet, Lord, you are our Father;
we the clay, you the potter,
we are all the work of your hand.

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm Ps 79
Response
God of hosts, bring us back;
let your face shine on us and we shall be saved.


1. O shepherd of Israel, hear us,
shine forth from your cherubim throne.
O Lord, rouse up your might,
O Lord, come to our help. Response

2. God of hosts, turn again, we implore,
look down from heaven and see.
Visit this vine and protect it,
the vine your right hand has planted. Response

3. May your hand be on the man you have chosen,
the man you have given your strength.
And we shall never forsake you again:
give us life that we may call upon your name. Response

SECOND READING

A reading from the first letter of St Paul to the Corinthians 1:3-9
We are waiting for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed


May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ send you grace and peace.

I never stop thanking God for all the graces you have received through Jesus Christ. I thank him that you have been enriched in so many ways, especially in your teachers and preachers; the witness to Christ has indeed been strong among you so that you will not be without any of the gifts of the Spirit while you are waiting for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed; and he will keep you steady and without blame until the last day, the day of our Lord Jesus Christ, because God by calling you has joined you to his Son, Jesus Christ; and God is faithful.

The Word of the Lord

Gospel Acclamation Ps 84:8
Alleluia, alleluia!
Let us see, O Lord, your mercy
and give us your saving help.
Alleluia!

GOSPEL

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Mark 13:33-37
Stay awake, because you never know when the time will come


Jesus said to his disciples:

‘Be on your guard, stay awake, because you never know when the time will come. It is like a man travelling abroad: he has gone from home, and left his servants in charge, each with his own task; and he has told the doorkeeper to stay awake.

So stay awake, because you do not know when the master of the house is coming, evening, midnight, cockcrow, dawn;if he comes unexpectedly, he must not find you asleep. And what I say to you I say to all: Stay awake!’

The Gospel of the Lord.

Asante sana @Liberty. Now I see where I should be coming on Sundays instead of asking you on the forum how your mass was. You told me a while back but sikunyita. I cannot make it to church today...homa iko juu kabisa imekuja na watoto kama throwing up, blazing headache etc. You passed it on to me.:(
Have a great week ahead.

@Liberty this has been a vv dark day for me. I have cried like no other. Mum calls us each every Sunday...so she drops the bombshell that my friend Dave is gone. It will take me years to recover. My Sista in Kenya was not even aware....when I sent you that song 'Nalikua nimelala....' I knew something was wrong.

Pole sana. I understand your loss, and your fealings, but in God we trust. I pray for you, and I will always, especially in the mornings when I go to work, I pray the Rozary daily. Farijika, May he RIP.
