Wednesday Week 7, Term 1

St Joseph's Day Mass


At Mass we gather as the friends of Jesus coming together. We listen to the story about Jesus, told to us from the scripture.

We go from Mass with Jesus as part of our lives. We now try to live as he did. The Mass is made up of twelve key moments. The ‘Greeting’ is the beginning of the celebration of Mass. Next is the ‘Penitential Act’ when we tell God we are sorry for the times we have not loved as we should have.

Following this are the ‘Scripture Readings’ read by people from the assembly, after which the Priest reads the Gospel. The First and Second Readings, and the Gospel are explained by the Priest and he talks about what we can learn from them in the ‘Homily’.

Next week in our St Joseph's Day Mass, Deacon Brenton will read the following Gospel story:

Gospel (Matthew 1:16. 18-21. 24)


A reading from the holy Gospel according to Matthew


Jacob was the father of Joseph the husband of Mary; of her was born Jesus who is called Christ.

This is how Jesus Christ came to be born. His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph; but before they came to live together she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. Her husband Joseph, being a man of honour and wanting to spare her publicity, decided to divorce her informally. He had made up his mind to do this when the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, ‘Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because she has conceived what is in her by the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son and you must name him Jesus, because he is the one who is to save his people from their sins.’ When Joseph woke up he did what the angel of the Lord had told him to do.


The Gospel of the Lord.


Response: Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ

After he has read the Gospel to us, Deacon Brenton will then talk about what it means in his Homily. You may like to start thinking about the message before Monday.
