Amos 6:1, 4-7

Gospel Good things come your way, just as bad things came the way of Lazarus.

Now he is being comforted here while you are in agony. Luke 16:19-31.


Children Jesus tells a story about a poor man who is so hungry he wants to eat the scraps from the rich man’s table. When he dies the poor man goes straight to heaven. The rich man wants to be there too, but it is too late for him!   He had many chances to do what God wanted – but he didn’t listen.
Communion Antiphon Remember your word to your servant, O Lord, by which you have given me hope. This is my comfort when I am brought low.
