PM: Offertory Thursdays--13th. Sunday Of Ordinary Time
As a holocaust of rams and bullocks, and of thousands of fatted lambs, so let our sacrifice be in your sight on this day, that it may be pleasing unto you. For there is no shame for those who put their trust in you, O Lord.
We hear an echo of this when the priest says, "Pray, bretheren...." The congregation's response is the act of trust God asks of us.
