  • First Reading

    The wicked say:
        Let us beset the just one, because he is obnoxious to us;
            he sets himself against our doings,
        reproaches us for transgressions of the law
            and charges us with violations of our training.
        Let us see whether his words be true;
            let us find out what will happen to him.
        For if the just one be the son of God, God will defend him
            and deliver him from the hand of his foes.
        With revilement and torture let us put the just one to the test
            that we may have proof of his gentleness
            and try his patience.
        Let us condemn him to a shameful death;
            for according to his own words, God will take care of him.

    Wis 2:12, 17-20

  • Second Reading

    Where jealousy and selfish ambition exist,
    there is disorder and every foul practice. 
    But the wisdom from above is first of all pure,
    then peaceable, gentle, compliant,
    full of mercy and good fruits,
    without inconstancy or insincerity. 
    And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace
    for those who cultivate peace.

    Where do the wars
    and where do the conflicts among you come from? 
    Is it not from your passions
    that make war within your members? 
    You covet but do not possess. 
    You kill and envy but you cannot obtain;
    you fight and wage war. 
    You do not possess because you do not ask. 
    You ask but do not receive,
    because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.

    Jas 3:16—4:3

  • Gospel

    Jesus and his disciples left from there and began a journey through Galilee,
    but he did not wish anyone to know about it. 
    He was teaching his disciples and telling them,
    “The Son of Man is to be handed over to men
    and they will kill him,
    and three days after his death the Son of Man will rise.” 
    But they did not understand the saying,
    and they were afraid to question him.

    They came to Capernaum and, once inside the house,
    he began to ask them,
    “What were you arguing about on the way?” 
    But they remained silent.
    They had been discussing among themselves on the way
    who was the greatest. 
    Then he sat down, called the Twelve, and said to them,
    “If anyone wishes to be first,
    he shall be the last of all and the servant of all.” 
    Taking a child, he placed it in the their midst,
    and putting his arms around it, he said to them,
    “Whoever receives one child such as this in my name, receives me;
    and whoever receives me,
    receives not me but the One who sent me.”

General Intercessions: 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time - September 19, 2021

For the One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic Church:

That her catechists may show forth the healing love of Jesus to their students;

That the preachers of the Church expound the truth of God’s tremendous mercy to their people;

That those who have stumbled on the path of discipleship may start the journey anew:

We pray.


For our City, State, Nation and World:

For all who continue to be affected by COVID – the ill, the health care community, those who have lost livelihoods and those who have lost hope;

For healing of body, mind and soul of all who experience pain, isolation, trauma from the pandemic;

For those affected by natural disasters of all kinds – wildfires, hurricanes, tornadoes, lightening storms and flash floods:

We pray.


For the needs of this Community of St Monica, gathered here and in diaspora:

That our catechists, teachers, parents and all who explain our Catholic Faith share their love of the Lord with their students;

That our students, faculty, parish staff, and priests remain healthy through this storm;

That all who have experienced the loss of a family member, friend or neighbor this year might know of God’s tremendous concern for our grief:

We pray.


For those who have fallen ill in body, mind or soul:

Alex Martini, Evan Malmuth, Magdalena Jacobo, Chance Williams, Stephanie Metton, Sheryl Gillet, Lisa Moogan, George Robinson, Steve Oprian, Kathleen Cunningham, Sheila Clarke, Diane Heppting, the Rafael Galindo Family, Roberto Terania Pahimolin, Charles Olivares, Leonard Gaines

Prayer for Spiritual Communion

My Jesus,

I believe you are really here in the Blessed Sacrament.

I love you more than anything in the world,

And I hunger to receive you.

But since I cannot receive Communion at this time,

Feed my soul at least spiritually.

I unite myself to you now,

As I do when I actually receive you in Holy Communion

Good Works Never Cease

For several months now we've been [email protected] and gathered online to worship and pray together. Although our state and communities have begun to take small steps towards re-opening, we will continue to re-imagine and re-establish parish life—wherever we are. Your table is our table.


Together, we have:

  • gathered together for Mass online, still inviting lectors, musicians, and ministers to offer their gifts
  • brought you our Parish Mission Retreat and prayerful devotions online
  • established a response ministry to serve and assist those in our community with meal and grocery delivery
  • thanked frontline medical workers
  • ensured that the lights stay on and that internet is accessible for those who are struggling
  • hand-written notes, made hundreds of phone calls, and kept our ministries connected and engaged.

You make all of this good work possible. Half of our offertory gifts are usually collected in church through the Sunday basket. While we aren't able to pass the basket right now, we hope you will continue your offertory gifts through either a one-time gift -or- recurring giving. You may also click the 'Donate' button in the Livestream player. Your sustained gifts bring stability and peace of mind—as well as hope and comfort for those who need it most. Thank you!
