Our statement to live by for week commening Monday24th September is:
I can say how I feel.
A reading from the holy Gospel according to John.
Glory to you,O Lord.
A man by the name of Lazarus was sick in the village of Bethany. He had two sisters, Martha and Mary. The sisters sent a message to Jesus and told him that his good friend Lazarus was sick. By the time Jesus got to Bethany, Lazarus was dead.
Mary, the sister of Lazarus, went to where Jesus was. Then as soon as she saw him, she knelt at his feet and said, ‘Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.’
Jesus started crying and the people said, ‘See how much he loved Lazarus.’
Jesus was still terribly upset.
The Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
