Bishop Benny Sagra celebrates a Thanksgiving Mass after he has been duly appointed Bishop of the Celtic Cross Old Catholic Templar Church by His Eminence Patriarch Andrew Patrick of the Celtic Cross Ministry. This is the Holy Mass on the Seventeenth Sunday After Pentecost. The Liturgical Color is Green. Epistle is from Ephesians 4:1-6. The Gospel is from Matthew 22:34-46. The Synopsis of Mass: To the cunning question of the Pharisee as to which was the greatest commandment in the Law, Jesus Christ replied: "You shall love the Lord, your God, with your whole heart, and with your whole soul, and with your whole mind." However, as Jesus Christ knew that we freequently forget another most important obligation, He added and insisted that there is a second commandment, that of loving our neighbor, for it is not possible to love God and at the same time to hate our neighbor. Jesus Christ recommends the love of neighbor as most necessary by reason of the selfishness of mankind. Let us be Christian in our relations with our neighbor, loving not merely in words but by deeds.
