The story of the loaves and fishes and its eucharistic connotations inspired both the opening hymn and the psalm at Communion. The sense of the generosity of God who opens wide his hands was behind the final hymn and the preparation of gifts was based on the reading from Romans.
There was better sense this morning that the congregation was beginning to sing the Mass settings with confidence.
