August 30


August 30, 2013:  Friday, 21st week, Ordinary Time

1 Thes 4:1-8  Please God.  Refrain from immorality,  Don't exploit anyone.  God calls us to holiness.

Ps 97:1, 2b, 5-6, 10, 11-12  "Rejoice in the Lord, you just!"

Mt 25:1-13  Kingdom:  like ten virgins meeting bridegroom:  wise had oil, feasted; foolish, without, locked out while shopping.  Be ready!


Music

The Lord is King/ Cooney (audio preview pre-Yahweh directive, sheet music sample post-directive) (psalm) [Dan Schutte's reflection on the directive]

[I remember a hymn with lyrics including "melt like wax" but can't place it now.]





  • "Clocks" tie:  waiting for bridegroom, running out of oil (gospel)
  • "Crystal" pin (reminiscent of mountain and wax):"Mountains melt like wax before the Lord" (psalm)
  • Green shirt of the Ordinary Time season

  • "Telephone" tie bar:  God "calls" to holiness (1st reading)
  • "Silverware" tie bar:  wedding feast (gospel)

Oops; I forgot the "People" tie pin for [3 of] the 10 virgins (gospel)
