decay, equipping you with everything that is good through JesusChrist to whom be the glory for ever and ever.
Exchange the sign of peace.Commentator:
In the beginning when god created the universe,the earth was formless and desolate. The raging ocean that coveredeverything was engulfed in total darkness, and the Spirit of God wasmoving over the water. God commanded “let there be light andthere was light.” God was pleased with what he saw. Then heseparated the light from darkness and he named the light ‘day’ andthe darkness night.Lord, it is night. A sea of darkness engulfs us. Terror,ignorance, unbelief, worries, poverty, sin and death. Destroy allpowers of darkness. Let the light of your resurrection shine and letis be day.

arathi.(pushpa and dhupa).
Fountain of truth, knowledge and bliss, he who drinks of your stream will not thirst. May he who quickens the intellect andkindles the heart strengthen you with his power to proclaim thesaving word.
As a sign of our openness to receive God’s wordinto our life. We shall keep our palms open and turned upwardsresting on our knees.
