Bulletin Shorts for the Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time – 24 July 2022

Genesis 18:20-32.  Psalm 138:1-2, 2-3, 6-7, 7-8.  Colossians 2:12-14.  Luke 11:1-13.

About Praying.  Abraham is persistent in his pleading with the Lord.  And the Lord listens and relents.  A disciple asks Jesus, after seeing him pray, how to pray.  Jesus gives a form that we use at every Mass and that we hand on to the elect each Lent.  He then goes on about persistence in our praying.

  • How does my prayer plead for the Kingdom of God to come?
  • How does my prayer ask for what I need to do God’s mercy work?
  • How does my prayer seek and offer forgiveness?

Use this prayer card to be ever mindful of the Works of Mercy.
