Commentaries and Prayer of the Faithful: Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time, August 19, 2012


INPUT Admonition


We wish you our warmest welcome in the beginning of our Eucharist. Last Wednesday, we gathered here to celebrate the Virgin Mary in her Assumption into heaven. And today, this Sunday 20 of Ordinary Time, we must be open, especially, to the words of Jesus. Will tell us, Jesus of Nazareth, bluntly, that he is spiritual and physical support for our walk. The Eucharist is real Body and Blood and that we need to continue living. Again, Jesus stops near us to ask us to accompany him. He offers us a powerful means to not falter on the way: the Bureau of Bread and the Word. Let’s start with joy our Eucharistic celebration. We stand to receive the celebrant and his companions, singing.


READINGS ON commentaries


1. – Today, the Book of Proverbs, is the first reading – and offers us a banquet of knowledge and of bread, a foretaste of that after we give the Lord Jesus. And as in many other occasions the first reading is as proper prologue of the Gospel we will hear later. Listen


2. – We continue, as in previous Sundays, reading the Letter to the Ephesians. Today, in the short passage that reads, San Pablo importance of the Eucharistic banquet favors focusing the necessary moderation in the things of the body. And asks us to find out, really, what the Lord wants. Listen


3. – John’s Gospel continues the discourse on the Bread of Life. Jesus is to proclaim food forever to walk the path that leads to a happy life, to eternity in the glory of God the Father. Standing to hear the proclamation of the Gospel.
