TWENTY FOURTH SUNDAY A Lectionary #130

How often must I forgive? As often as I am forgiven. Churches in the United States have asked that September 11 be a national day of mourning and remembrance. Since that date falls on a Sunday this year, no special Masses are allowed, unless a local bishop gives permission for special texts for readings and prayers.

Sirach 27:30–28:7. Actions have consequences. How can we be forgiven, if we refuse to forgive?

Psalm of the Day: Psalm (102) 103
This hymn of thanksgiving is in three sections: praise of God for benefits bestowed on the psalmist (1-5); praise for benefits bestowed on the nation (6-10); and praise of God for care of all humankind (11-17). Verses for the responsorial psalm are taken from all three sections.

Romans 14:7–9. No believer lives or dies alone; we are all embraced in God’s love, and we live and we die for the Lord.

Matthew 18:21–35. The quintessential parable that expands on the “golden rule”: Do to others what you would want them to do to you.

Songs for the Liturgy

Because this is September 11, at least some music for this day could focus on mourning, remembrance, and prayer for reconciliation, so that someday we may live in a world where such things will not happen, in a world where forgiveness is a way of life. It would be inappropriate to focus on nationalistic themes.
