PASSION-TIDE – FIFTH SUNDAY OF LENT

“The Weekly News”   – 13th March 2016

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today

 

INTRODUCTION TO WORSHIP

When Judas used the poor to justify his own intransigence, Jesus said, “You always have the poor with you, but you do not always have me.”   While we are with Jesus today, let us enjoy his company as we worship God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

THE COLLECT

Most merciful God,

who by the death and resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ delivered and saved the world:  Grant that by faith in him who suffered on the cross we may triumph in the power of his victory; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen

 

TODAY’S READINGS (Page 834/835)

First Reading                                                                                                  Isaiah 43.16-21

God is about to do a new thing. God will make a way in the wilderness and produce rivers to water the desert. God’s people will be properly nourished.

 

Second Reading                                                                                       Philippians 3.4b-14

Paul can boast of impeccable antecedents, but he regards all this as so much rubbish beside the amazing value of a personal relationship with Jesus.

 

The Gospel                                                                                                      St. John 12.1-8

At a dinner party, Mary anoints Jesus’ feet with perfume and wipes them on her hair, thus scandalising Judas Iscariot’s sense of propriety. But Jesus is unfazed.  He accepts her actions and tells Judas to leave her alone.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Lord Jesus Christ, you have taught us that what we do for the least of our brothers and sisters we do also for you:  Give us the will to be the servant of others as you were the servant of all, and gave up your life and died for us, but are alive and reign, now and for ever.  Amen
