Sowing Seeds
23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time
September 10, 2017
As we prepare for Mass by reflecting on the scriptures, hymns, and intercessions, let us open our hearts by praying the words of an ancient hymn...

Where charity and love are, God is there.
Christ's love has gathered us into one.
Let us rejoice and be pleased in Him.
Let us fear and love the living God.
And may we love each other with a sincere heart.
