Readings

    Wordle: Readings 9-23-13
  • Ezr 1:1-6  King Cyrus: “God gave me kingdoms of the earth, charged me to build him a house."
  • Ps 126:1b-6  "The Lord has done marvels for us."  Sow in tears; reap rejoicing.
  • Lk 8:16-18  Put your lamp on stand so others may see the light.  The hidden will become visible; secrets will come to light.  More will be given to one who has.

Music
  • Send down the fire/ Haugen (lyrics) (remembering triathlete Fr. Tom Baker's introductory remarks at Saturday's San Fernando Regional Congress.  It takes discipline to be a disciple, and we need to know Jesus to share Jesus...  (I also like the song, not just for Pentecost or Confirmations, because it's catchy and easy to sing, on only 5 notes in its 32 bars.)

Apparel


  • Claddagh tie pin:  crown for Cyrus, King of Persia (1st reading)
  • "Garden" pin:  those who sow in tears shall reap rejoicing (psalm)

  • "Sun" tie:  let your light shine (gospel)
