Transcript of Acceptance Liturgy
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” Definition: Acceptance
A person's assent to the reality of a situation, recognizing a process or condition (often a negative or uncomfortable situation) without attempting to change it, protest, or exit. Second reading: -Romans 15:7
"Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." Gospel: Matthew 7:1-5
1“Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. 3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye." Prayers of the Faithful:
The response is "Lord, hear our prayer"
1. For all students who have ever been the victim of bullying; may God be with them & help to remind them that they are beautiful in their own way.
2. For anyone suffering; let them know that the Lord is with them and help them to get through their situations and be lead to safety.
3. For everyone in this class who may be dealing with any difficulties; let God help them, be with their families for support and keep them together in their time of need.
4. For all students who may need help with their upcoming CPT's and exam's; we ask the Lord to give them patience and knowledge so that they may pass their classes with good marks and relieve some of the stress that is put on them during this time.
(Response) "Judging people has a lot to do with acceptance. How can you accept a person for who they are if all you're doing is criticizing them before you get to know them as a person? Whether you chose to accept someone is up to you, but Jesus teaches us that no matter if you are rich, poor, sick, healthy, etc. We are all equal in his eyes. Have you ever heard the saying "Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you"? Well it means that you should treat people the way you would want to be treated. Don't be hypocritical and go around with a prejudice attitude, if you wouldn't want anyone doing the exact same thing to you. We are all human beings and creations of God, therefore we are all perfect. If he loves us, and thinks we are each beautiful in our own ways, then what gives you the right to put someone down? To tell them they're not good enough? Or to say their way of believing is wrong? Whether they are black or white, gay or straight, it shouldn't matter. Your personality is what counts. If acceptance was more common among people, we could eliminate hatred, we could eliminate racism, and we could eliminate wars. Adolf Hitler killed tens of millions of people, based on nothing more than their religious beliefs and physical features. All of these things are a result of people failing to accept others as they are. Why judge someone on something they them self didn't chose?" Homily As our liturgy ends, we ask you to remember the things we mentioned and to be more open minded and accepting of people. That you may not be prejudice and judge someone before getting to know them. Remember to treat others the way you would want to be treated, because why would you think it's okay to discriminate against someone, and then be offended when it happens to you?" Closing
