Master Guide
INTRODUCTION TO THE CELEBRATION

The presider or another minister introduces the Mass

We were created in the image and likeness of


God, and God is love.
Love, therefore, is part of our nature.
We are on this earth with each other to love one
another, to manifest our being made in Gods
image, in loves image.
Since the very beginning, God intended human
beings to love one another,
thats why theres the institution of marriage.
Marriage is the permanent bond of the love
between husband and wife,
a living out of that Christian love that Jesus Christ
showed when he offered his life for us.
We celebrate that love here - in this church when we remember and make present that
sacrifice on the altar.
In this eucharist, we continue to pray for better
weather and for the victims of the recent
calamaties that we experienced.
May our celebration of Christs self-giving bring
us to do the same in these times when we are
most needed.

READING I

The lector proclaims the reading

Gn 2:18-24

A reading from the book of Genesis.

he LORD God said: It is not good for the


man to be alone.
I will make a suitable partner for him.
So the LORD God formed out of the ground
various wild animals and various birds of the air,
and he brought them to the man to see what he
would call them;
whatever the man called each of them would be
its name.
The man gave names to all the cattle,
all the birds of the air, and all wild animals;
but none proved to be the suitable partner for the
man.
So the LORD God cast a deep sleep on the man,
and while he was asleep,
he took out one of his ribs and closed up its place
with flesh.
The LORD God then built up into a woman the
rib
that he had taken from the man.
When he brought her to the man, the man said:
This one, at last, is bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
this one shall be called woman,
for out of her man this one has been taken.
That is why a man leaves his father and mother
and clings to his wife,
and the two of them become one flesh.
The Word of the Lord.

The people respond

Thanks be to God.

HOMILY

The deacon/priest says

The people answer

Glory to you, Lord.

The deacon/priest proclaims the gospel.

The Pharisees approached Jesus and asked,


Is it lawful for a husband to divorce his wife?
They were testing him.
He said to them in reply, What did Moses
command you?
They replied,
Moses permitted a husband to write a bill of
divorce
and dismiss her.
But Jesus told them,
Because of the hardness of your hearts
he wrote you this commandment.
But from the beginning of creation, God made
them male and female.
For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother
and be joined to his wife,
and the two shall become one flesh.
So they are no longer two but one flesh.
Therefore what God has joined together,
no human being must separate.
In the house the disciples again questioned Jesus
about this.
He said to them,
Whoever divorces his wife and marries another
commits adultery against her;
and if she divorces her husband and marries
another,
she commits adultery.
[And people were bringing children to him that he
might touch them,
but the disciples rebuked them.
When Jesus saw this he became indignant and
said to them,
Let the children come to me;
do not prevent them, for the kingdom of God
belongs to
such as these.
Amen, I say to you,
whoever does not accept the kingdom of God like
a child
will not enter it.

Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

The presider/homilies gives his homily.

PROFESSION OF FAITH

All say
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit
and born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended to the dead.
On the third day, he rose again.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body
and the life everlasting. Amen.
