Scripture

  • First Reading

    Thus says the LORD:
    All you who are thirsty,
    come to the water!
    You who have no money,
    come, receive grain and eat;
    Come, without paying and without cost,
    drink wine and milk!
    Why spend your money for what is not bread;
    your wages for what fails to satisfy?
    Heed me, and you shall eat well,
    you shall delight in rich fare.
    Come to me heedfully,
    listen, that you may have life.
    I will renew with you the everlasting covenant,
    the benefits assured to David.

    IS 55:1-3

  • Second Reading

    Brothers and sisters:
    What will separate us from the love of Christ?
    Will anguish, or distress, or persecution, or famine,
    or nakedness, or peril, or the sword?
    No, in all these things we conquer overwhelmingly
    through him who loved us.
    For I am convinced that neither death, nor life,
    nor angels, nor principalities,
    nor present things, nor future things,
    nor powers, nor height, nor depth,
    nor any other creature will be able to separate us
    from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    ROM 8:37-39

  • Gospel

    When Jesus heard of the death of John the Baptist,
    he withdrew in a boat to a deserted place by himself.
    The crowds heard of this and followed him on foot from their towns.
    When he disembarked and saw the vast crowd,
    his heart was moved with pity for them, and he cured their sick.  
    When it was evening, the disciples approached him and said,
    “This is a deserted place and it is already late;
    dismiss the crowds so that they can go to the villages
    and buy food for themselves.”
    Jesus said to them, “There is no need for them to go away;
    give them some food yourselves.”
    But they said to him,
    “Five loaves and two fish are all we have here.”
    Then he said, “Bring them here to me, ”
    and he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass.
    Taking the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven,
    he said the blessing, broke the loaves,
    and gave them to the disciples,
    who in turn gave them to the crowds.
    They all ate and were satisfied,
    and they picked up the fragments left over—
    twelve wicker baskets full.
    Those who ate were about five thousand men,
    not counting women and children.

    MT 14:13-21

Lyrics

  • Table of Life

    Table of Life
    By Steve Angrisano

     

    Refrain

    All who thirst, come to the water.

    All who hunger, eat without price.

    Why spend your wages on what fails to satisfy?

    Come to the table of life.

    Table of life.

     

    1. Come to me all who need rest and be satisfied.

    All who are weary will find that my burden is light.

    For the bread that I give will not perish but will bring you life.

     

    2. The bread that I break is my flesh, take and eat.

    This cup now poured out is my blood for a world in need.

    I lay down my life so you might come and follow me.

  • Psalm 145

    The Hand of the Lord Feeds Us
    by Estela García-López and Rodolfo López

     

    Refrain

     

    The hand of the Lord feeds us;

    He answers all our needs;

    He answers all our needs.

     

    1. The Lord is gracious and merciful,

    Slow to anger and of great kindness.

    The Lord is good to all

    And compassionate toward all his works.

     

    2. The eyes of all look hopefully to you,

    And you give them their food in due season;

    You open your hand and satisfy

    The desire of every living thing.

     

    3. The Lord is just in all his ways And holy in all his works.

    The Lord is near to all who call upon him,

    All who call upon him in truth.

  • Enough

    Enough
    by Elias Dummer, Jeff Johnson, & Tom Eccleshall

     

    1. I am not what I make, I am who You have made me to be.

    I am not what I’ve done, I am loved unconditionally.

    I am not loved by the measure of love that I bring.

    I am not who I know, I am known by the King of all Kings.

     

    Refrain

    Jesus, You are enough,

    Jesus, You are enough for me.

    With nothing, I still have everything,

    Jesus, You are enough for me.

     

    2. You are Maker made visible holding the world in Your hands.

    You are patient and merciful, giver of grace without end.

    Satisfied simply by being who You’ve always been.

    You are infinite love and You prove it again and again.

     

    Refrain

    Jesus, You are enough,

    Jesus, You are enough for me.

    With nothing, I still have everything,

    Jesus, You are enough for me.

     

    Bridge

    In You I am created, in You I am sustained.

    With You I’m resurrected, You overcame the grave.

    With You I stand in victory, now what else could I need?

    With You I want for nothing, Jesus, my everything.

     

    Refrain

    Jesus, You are enough,

    Jesus, You are enough for me.

    With nothing, I still have everything,

    Jesus, You are enough for me.

  • Bread for the World

    Bread for the World

    by Bernadette Farrell

       

    Refrain

    Bread for the world: a world of hunger.

    Wine for all peoples: people who thirst.

    May we who eat be bread for others.

    May we who drink pour out our love.

     

    1. Lord Jesus Christ, you are the bread of life,

    Broken to reach and heal the wounds of human pain.

    Where we divide your people you are waiting there

    On bended knee to wash our feet with endless care.

     

    2. Lord Jesus Christ, you are the wine of peace,

    Poured into hearts once broken and where dryness sleeps.

    Where we are tired and weary you are waiting there

    To be the way which beckons us beyond despair.

Intercessions

General Intercessions: Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time - August 2, 2020

For the Church:

That wisdom and compassion guide the response of Church leaders to this pandemic...

That pastors and lay leaders collaborate as they work together for the good of the Church…

That all worshipping with us today be satiated with the Word of God as we hunger to return to the Eucharistic Meal...

That steadfast patience guides us in following public health directives to limit the pandemic’s spread and impact

For the prayers we hold in the depths of our hearts…

We pray

 

For the medical community and essential workers:

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

Amen.

Good Works Never Cease

For several months now we've been Safer@Home 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!
