Welcome back to the Sunday Mass Study Notes for 6-19-2016. One of the main take away points from this week’s readings is the role of Jesus as Messiah Who saves peoples from their sins. This is in contrast to the teachers of that age who taught that salvation came through obedience of the works of the Jewish Law. We will also discuss how taking your cross is an invitation to freedom and not a burden.
Welcome back to the Sunday Mass notes for 12-20-2015. This week we open with the first reading from the Prophet Micah where we learn about a prediction God gave concerning the Messiah. Then we learn about Jesus’ high priestly ministry in the second reading from the Book of Hebrews. We close this week’s study with the Gospel reading from Luke in which Mary visits Elizabeth.
Welcome back to the Sunday Mass notes for 7-5-2015. This week we learn about the commission of the prophet Ezekiel. Then we study the value of weakness in the life of Paul and by application how God uses it for our good. We close with a study of Mark’s Gospel in which we see the rejection of Jesus’ message by those close to him from His own home town.
