“Twenty-Seventh Sunday of the Year” – 3rd. October 2021
A Reading from the Book of Genesis:
The Lord God said, ‘It is not good that the man should be alone. I will make him a helpmate.’ So from the soil the Lord God fashioned all the wild beasts and all the birds of heaven. These he brought to the man to see what he would call them; each one was to bear the name the man would give it. The man gave names to all the cattle, all the birds of heaven and all the wild beasts. But no helpmate suitable for man was found for him. So the Lord God made the man fall into a deep sleep. And while he slept, he took one of his ribs and enclosed it in flesh. The Lord God built the rib he had taken from the man into a woman, and brought her to the man. The man exclaimed: ‘This at last is bone from my bones, and flesh from my flesh! This is to be called woman, for this was taken from man.’ This is why a man leaves his father and mother and joins himself to his wife, and they become one body.
The Word of the Lord.
Response: May the Lord bless us all the days of our life.
O blessed are those who fear the Lord and walk in his ways!
By the labour of your hands you shall eat. You will be happy and prosper. R.
Your wife like a fruitful vine in the heart of your house;
your children like shoots of the olive, around your table. R.
Indeed thus shall be blessed the man who fears the Lord.
May the Lord bless you from Zion in a happy Jerusalem all the days of your life!
May you see your children’s children. On Israel, peace! R.
A Reading from the Letter to the Hebrews:
We see in Jesus one who was for a short while made lower than the angels and is now crowned with glory and splendour because he submitted to death; by God’s grace he had to experience death for all mankind.
As it was his purpose to bring a great many of his sons into glory, it was appropriate that God, for whom everything exists and through whom everything exists, should make perfect, through suffering, the leader who would take them to their salvation. For the one who sanctifies, and the ones who are sanctified, are of the same stock; that is why he openly calls them brothers.
The Word of the Lord.
As long as we love one another God will live in us and his love will be complete in us.
A Reading from the Holy Gospel of St. Mark:
People were bringing little children to Jesus, for him to touch them. The disciples turned them away, but when Jesus saw this he was indignant and said to them, ‘Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. I tell you solemnly, anyone who does not welcome the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.’ Then he put his arms round them, laid his hands on them and gave them his blessing.
The Gospel of the Lord.
Note from Bishop Denis Nulty:
Bishop Denis Nulty has issued an invitation to Parish Teams, Liturgy Groups, Parish Pastoral Councils and to all the people of the Diocese to reflect and share with him their thoughts and ideas on how people can be encouraged and welcomed back to regular Sunday Worship.
Are there concrete steps the parish can begin to take to make the Sunday Celebration more attractive and welcoming for those already coming and those still to return?
Are there concrete steps the parish can take to continue to support families – as a domestic church – while drawing them closer to the life of the parish community?
From your conversation, what thoughts/ideas/suggestions would you like to share with Bishop Denis and with the people, religious and priests of the Diocese who will reflect on these responses?.
Responses can be forwarded by post to
Most Reverend Denis Nulty, Apostolic Administrator,
Ossory Diocesan Office, James’ Street, Kilkenny or email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
