Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time C: Faith Bears Fruit Beyond Measure
Readings for Mass
Therefore from one person, and this one as good as dead, descendants were born, ‘as many as the stars of heaven and as the innumerable grains of sand by the seashore (NRSV, Hebrews 11:12).’
Let us pray,
Abraham was ready to surrender all, trusting only in you, O Lord. May we too, Lord, risk everything in the moment that your life may abound in us as it did in Abraham, our father in faith.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
