Weekly Reflections on the Reading
By virtue of our baptism, we have beencalled to be servants for the Father’s mission. As
followers of Jesus, we are duty-bound to bring the good news of salvation to a world very much in need of saving.
As disciples of the one true God, we must find our voice and speak his holy truth even whenit may be inconvenient or unwanted.
In the first reading, God reminds Isaiah that Israel is the Lord’s servant. Paul greets the
Church of Corinth, announcing he has been called to be an Apostle. In the Gospel, John announces Jesus as the Lamb of God.

PRAYER TO SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen..
