Yesterday we had Graduations in the College - 5 ceremonies - the College Choir kept it stamina until the last. Today was a bit quieter and with a scattering of snow on the ground Mass was a little less full.
Lots of healing this morning — the Psallite chant used Psalm 145 and so a nice connection was made with Communion. Even the final hymn would could just be general thanksgiving - a suitable response to healing - notes that he heals all our ills. Both the Psallite chant and A touching place were suited to being sung unaccompanied.
