2nd Sunday after Pentecost

Father’s Day & Youth Day

Collect
Lord Jesus Christ,
you tell us not to be afraid:
challenge us to abandon ourselves,
encourage us to risk the sacrifice
that we may find the abundant life you promise;
for you live and reign
with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
in the unity of the Blessed Trinity,
one God forever and ever.

First Reading
Romans 6:1b-11

Second Reading
1 Corinthians 12:3-13

Gospel
Listen to the Good News proclaimed by Matthew 10:24-39

Prayer for Young People
God our Father, you see your children growing up in an unsteady and confusing world: Show them that your ways give more life than the ways of the world, and that following you is better than chasing after selfish goals.
Help them to take failure, not as a measure of their worth, but as a chance for a new start. Give them strength to hold their faith in you, and to keep alive their joy in your creation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

We go in peace to love and serve the Lord,
In the name of Christ. Amen.
