Praise and glory be to God for His Wisdom and great love for us!

Thanks and praise be to God for His Saints now in heaven who without yet encountering Christ, suffered with most laying down their lives to Herald His coming and to proclaim God’s Word.

Thanks and praise be to God for His Saints, who having encountered Jesus sought to model their lives after Him. They made Him known to all who would listen and see either by word or deed. They suffered and died for the Glory of His name. They are truly an inspiration for us to do likewise.

And like St Peter we hope to say to You our dear Saviour “We have given up everything and followed you.” Grant us the courage, strength and the Graces we need to do so. We humbly implore in Your most precious name. Amen

FIRST READING
1 Peter 1:10–16

Gospel Mark 10:28-31

Peter began to say to Jesus,
“We have given up everything and followed you.”
Jesus said, “Amen, I say to you,
there is no one who has given up house or brothers or sisters
or mother or father or children or lands
for my sake and for the sake of the Gospel
who will not receive a hundred times more now in this present age:
houses and brothers and sisters
and mothers and children and lands,
with persecutions, and eternal life in the age to come.
But many that are first will be last, and the last will be first.”
