“Weekly News” for
THE UNITED BENEFICE OF PADSTOW
ST. MERRYN and ST. ISSEY with ST. PETROC MINOR
12th SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY (Proper 14)
SUNDAY AUGUST 12TH 2018
A warm welcome to visitors who join us today. Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.
Jesus offers himself to us as the bread of life, spiritual food. In our worship let us feed on him, so that he may fill our very being with his love and his life.
O God, you declare your almighty power
most chiefly in showing mercy and pity:
mercifully grant to us such a measure of your grace,
that we, running the way of your commandments,
may receive your gracious promises,
and be made partakers of your heavenly treasure;
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 (Lectionary Page 644/646 – Proper 14)
First Reading 1 Kings 19:4-8
Elijah flees from his enemies into the wilderness. Exhausted in body and mind, he tells God he can go no further. God supplies the rest and food so he can continue.
Second Reading Ephesians 4:25–5:2
Paul gives the Ephesian Christians practical examples of how they should live together. He sums up by encouraging them to imitate Christ’s sacrificial love.
Gospel John 6:35, 41-51
Jesus declares that he is the bread of life. His enemies question his authority to make such bold claims, but Jesus asserts that those who feed on him through faith will receive eternal life.
POST COMMUNION PRAYER
Lord of all mercy, we your faithful people have celebrated that one true sacrifice which takes away our sins and brings pardon and peace: By our communion keep us firm on the foundation of the gospel and preserve us from all sin; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
