7th Sunday in Ordinary Time

The Countercultural Christ!

Join Dina Marie Hale on this weekly broadcast as she reflects upon the readings for the 7th Sunday in Ordinary Time. The readings for the Mass are from I Samuel, Psalm 103, I Corinthians and the Gospel of Luke. Today we continue to hear the message of Jesus – on the plain. He unpacks a countercultural way of life – and how to treat those who are our enemies. We are called to a life of love and kindness, to be merciful as God is merciful. May we trust in the Lord and find joy and happiness in his ways and wisdom. Now, join us for this reflection with Dina Marie.

Act of Consecration for the United States

Most Holy Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – in union with the Blessed Virgin Mary, we adore Your majesty and acknowledge Your supreme eternal dominion and authority.

Most Holy Trinity, we place the United States of America into the hands of Mary Immaculate in order that she may present the country to You. Through the intercession of Mary, have mercy on the Catholic Church in America. Have mercy on our President and on all the officers of our government. Protect family life in our nation. Grant the precious gift of many vocations to the priesthood and religious life. Have mercy on the sick, the poor, the tempted, and all who are in need. 

Mary, Immaculate Virgin, Our Mother, Patroness of our land, we honor you and ask your maternal protection and care for us. Obtain for us the graces we need to live and die according to the Will of your Divine Son. Amen.
