“Weekly News” for

THE UNITED BENEFICE OF PADSTOW

ST. MERRYN and ST. ISSEY with ST. PETROC MINOR

16th SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY (Proper 19)

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 16th 2018

 

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.  Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.

INTRODUCTION

In this Eucharist we come together to listen and learn again the nature of God, not to tell Him what we want but to receive what He offers us.

 

COLLECT FOR THE 16th SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY

O Lord, we beseech you mercifully to hear the prayers
of your people who call upon you;
and grant that they may both perceive and know what things they ought to do, and also may have grace and power faithfully to fulfil them;
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.

 

READINGS FOR TODAY – Proper 19                 (Lectionary Page 671/673)

First Reading                                        Isaiah 50: 4-9a

The prophet knows that he really is teaching what he has learned from God, even though everyone around him despises and disregards him.

 

Second Reading                                   James 3: 1-12

This is a solemn warning about the dangers of careless and unkind speech. Anyone who talks, whether to teach or to gossip, will be held responsible for the outcome of their words.

 

Gospel                                                   St. Mark 8: 27-end

The disciples say what other people think about Jesus, but harder to say who they think he is, and harder still to allow him to teach them the meaning of his vocation.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Almighty God, you have taught us through your Son
that love is the fulfilling of the law:
grant that we may love you with our whole heart
and our neighbours as ourselves;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

15th SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY (Proper 18)

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 9th  2018

 

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.  Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.

INTRODUCTION

In his ministry Jesus displays love and compassion. We who have put our faith in him must try and follow that example as we receive his pardon and peace.

THE COLLECT

God, who in generous mercy sent the Holy Spirit

upon your Church in the burning fire of your love:
grant that your people may be fervent in the fellowship of the gospel
that, always abiding in you,
they may be found steadfast in faith and active in service;
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 665/666)

First Reading                      Isaiah 35:4-7a

As God will punish the wicked, so he will reward his chosen. His reign will bring blessings of plenty, of joy and health.

 

Second Reading              James 2:1-10, 14-17

Readings from the letter of James relate our faith to how we behave. If we claim to be Christians our faith should be demonstrated in the way we treat others – especially the poor.

 

Gospel                                   St. Mark 7:24-37

Mark’s Gospel turns to a new phase of Jesus’ ministry – his going to Gentiles. We find this perfectly natural, but the difficulties it posed for the Jews of the early Church are evident in this story.

 

POST COMMUNION PRAYER

Keep, O Lord, your Church, with your perpetual mercy; and, because without you our human frailty cannot but fall, keep us ever by your help from all things hurtful, and lead us to all things profitable to our salvation;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.  Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.

INTRODUCTION

As we come to this Eucharist may our hearts be full of love. Let us rejoice in the God who created us and redeemed us.

THE COLLECT

Almighty God, whose only Son has opened for us
a new and living way into your presence:
give us pure hearts and steadfast wills to worship you in spirit and in truth;
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 660/661 – Proper 17)

First Reading                                     Deuteronomy 4:1-2, 6-9

Moses calls on the Israelites to respond to God’s love by obeying his commandments: this mutual relationship will bring them to the Promised Land.

 

Second Reading                             James 1:17-end

God’s call is to obey the fundamental law.  A living relationship with God delivers us from the slavery of sin. We put this into practice by helping others.

 

Gospel                                               St. Mark 7:1-8, 14-15, 21-23

When they censure his disciples for neglecting rituals, Jesus reminds the Pharisees of the basis of God’s law: to honour him with our hearts.

 

POST COMMUNION PRAYER

Lord God, the source of truth and love,
keep us faithful to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship,
united in prayer and the breaking of bread,
and one in joy and simplicity of heart, in Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen

Summer is Here!
