The Old Testament Scriptures

Jeremiah 29: 1, 4-7 in which Jeremiah implores the people to make the best out of what they have, even though they are living in exile, and to pray on the behalf of the city where they live, even though it is not their home.

Psalm 66: 1-11  – In which the psalmist extols the mighty acts of the Lord our God and tells us to be joyful.


The New Testament Scriptures

2 Timothy 2: 8-15 –  In which Paul tells Timothy to remind the people that if we have died with Christ, we will also live with Christ, and if we endure with Christ, we will also reign with Christ.

Luke 17: 11-19 –  In which Jesus heals ten lepers, but only one of them thanks him for it.


Special Music

A special music presentation will be made by children from our Children’s Ark School, being joined by our St. Francis Youth Choir to honor the 15th Anniversary of the Children’s Ark.

Offertory Anthem –  “Hear My Prayer” – Moses Hogan

Lou Carol’s Organ Notes

Lord, Be Glorified” and “Prelude in G Major” by Johan Sebastian Bach

Today’s prelude is a setting of the chorale found at #397 in the hymnal.  The manual and pedal parts enter imitatively on each chorale phrase, all leading up to a grand presentation of the tune in the trumpet stop.  The piece reflects the message of thanks offered by one Samaritan leper in today’s Gospel.

    Sounds like Jeremiah would want you to root for the Phillies!

      Exegesis is best left to a professional!


      And hello to the The Other Fr. Ryan (though I guess where he is, I am The Other Fr. Ryan)
