With a Demonstration

Somos del Señor

Fifth Sunday after the Epiphany, Year A

“Preach the gospel at all times. When necessary use words.” This quote is still attributed to St. Francis of Assisi, even though historians can’t find a single time he said this. It sounds like Francis though; don’t you think? And he did say something similar: “It is no use walking anywhere to preach unless our walking is our preaching.”

Offertory Prayer

Holy God of mercy, redemption and grace, this morning we bring our gifts and pray that you will dedicate them to your work of love and reconnection with all your children. These gifts seem small when balanced against what Christ has given us and what you continue to give us through the Holy Spirit. In our giving, may we grow in gratitude, trust, and faithfulness. In the name of Christ, who gave all for us, we pray. Amen. (1 Corinthians 2:1-12 (13-16)

Oraciones para ofrendar

Santo Dios de misericordia, redención y gracia, esta mañana traemos nuestros talentos y oramos para que los dediques a tu trabajo de amor y reconexión con todos tus hijos. Estas ofrendas parecen pequeñas cuando se comparan con lo que Cristo nos ha dado y lo que tú continúas dándonos a través del Espíritu Santo. En nuestra entrega, que crezcamos en gratitud, confianza y fidelidad. En el nombre de Cristo, que dio todo por nosotros, oramos. Amén. (1 Corintios 2:1-12, 13-16)
