Take care what you hear

Greetings on this the Memorial of Saints Timothy and Titus, bishops
Readings: 2 Tm 1:1-8; PS 96:1-2a, 2b-3, 7-8a, 10; Mk 4:21-25
Notes: [Paul said,] I remind you to stir into flame the gift of God that you have through the imposition of my hands.

How we are to behave, viz, grace and mercy

The measure with which you measure will be measured out to you, and still more will be given to you. To the one who has, more will be given; from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.

What we have received

Laying on of Hands

All-powerful God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, by water and the Holy Spirit you freed your sons and daughters from sin and gave them new life. Send your Holy Spirit upon them to be their helper and guide. Give them the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of right judgment and courage, the spirit of knowledge and reverence. Fill them with the spirit of wonder and awe in your presence. We ask this through Christ our Lord. R. Amen

Anointing with Chrism

N., be sealed with the Gift of the Holy Spirit. Newly confirmed: Amen.
The minister of the sacrament adds: Peace be with you. Newly confirmed: And with your spirit.

First reading
I remind you to stir into flame the gift of God that you have through the imposition of my hands. For God did not give us a spirit of cowardice but rather of power and love and self-control. So do not be ashamed of your testimony to our Lord, nor of me, a prisoner for his sake; but bear your share of hardship for the Gospel with the strength that comes from God.

Responsorial Psalm
Proclaim God’s marvelous deeds to all the nations.

Alleluia Verse
A lamp to my feet is your word, a light to my path.

Gospel Portion
He also told them, “Take care what you hear.

Peace be with you,
Deacon Gerry
