Opening Liturgy - 16th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Introduction to the Liturgy of the Day
July 17 and July 18 – 16
Sunday in Ordinary Time
In today’s Gospel people from towns all over Galilee hurried to see and hear Jesus. His Heart was moved, for they appeared to be “sheep without a shepherd.”
Jesus is that shepherd. Jesus is
. He has drawn us here today, from different households, from different families, perhaps even from different towns.
We come today to celebrate the Eucharist, this wonderful sacrament that Jesus established to be celebrated in His name until the end of time, this sacrament in which we receive our Lord, our redeemer, our shepherd.
