“Weekly News” for
THE UNITED BENEFICE OF PADSTOW
ST. MERRYN and ST. ISSEY with ST. PETROC MINOR
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.
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.
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
