18th Sunday Ord C


A Pilgrim's Daily Prayer

Called through the Word to the everlasting journey in the Spirit

from nothingness to union with the One who is the Beginning and the End

Hendrick van Balen, Holy Trinity, Sint Jacobskerk, Antwerp, 1620s

 

Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary  Time C:                             Seek the Things that are Above

 

Readings for Mass
First Reading: Ecclesiastes 1:2; 2:21-23
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 95:1-2, 6-7, 8-9
Second Reading: Colossians 3:1-5, 9-11
Gospel: Luke 12:13-21

 

So if you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God (NRSV, Colossians 3:1).

 

Let us pray.

 

Father, you have given us this wonderful world in which to live out our physical lives.  May we realize at every moment, however, that it is not our final home but that you call all of us, already offered a share in your divine life, to live forever with you in the world to come, growing constantly in everything that you are.  Let us lift up all of our hopes and desires above this present world to rest always on you who are our only true Future.

 

Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
