“Weekly News” for
THE UNITED BENEFICE OF PADSTOW
ST. MERRYN and ST. ISSEY with ST. PETROC MINOR
9th SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY (Proper 12)– SUNDAY JULY 29th 2018
A warm welcome to visitors who join us today. Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.
Jesus fed the crowds who followed him with loaves of bread. Let us allow him into our lives today so he can feed us with the true bread from heaven.
THE COLLECT FOR THE NINTH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY
Almighty God, who sent your Holy Spirit
to be the life and light of your Church:
open our hearts to the riches of your grace,
that we may bring forth the fruit of the Spirit in love and joy and peace;
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.
THE READINGS (Proper 12 – Page 633 to 635 of Lectionary)
First Reading 2 Kings 4:42 – 44
Elisha’s miraculous feeding of a hundred people with twenty loaves prefigures, on a smaller scale, Jesus’ feeding of five thousand with five loaves.
Second Reading Ephesians 3:14-21
St Paul prays that the Gentiles in Ephesus will come to know Christ in all his fullness and so benefit from the abundance of God’s grace.
Gospel St. John 6:1-21
After miraculously feeding the crowds, Jesus thwarts their plans to crown him king and later appears to the disciples, walking on the Sea of Galilee.
POST COMMUNION PRAYER
Holy Father, who gathered us here around the table of your Son
to share this meal with the whole household of God:
in that new world where you reveal the fullness of your peace,
gather people of every race and language
to share in the eternal banquet of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
