3rd Sunday of Lent

3 March 2013

EntranceFor God so loved the world (mtgf)
Penitential RiteLenten (Bob Hurd)
Psalm 102The Lord is compassion (mtgf)
Gospel AcclamationLenten (mtgf)
Preparation of GiftsLord, for thy tender mercies' sake (Farrant)
Eucharistic AcclamationsMissa Ubi Caritas (Bob Hurd)
Lamb of GodMissa Ubi Caritas (Bob Hurd)
Communion AntiphonThe sparrow finds a home (mtgf)
CommunionHoly Ground (mtgf)
FinalPraise my soul the king of heaven

Broad themes of repentance and forgiveness and the image of the burning bush meant an opportunity to repeat that was written for this Sunday three year's ago - Holy Ground. In a similar way to the other couple of times we have used since then we sang the verses consecutively with the refrain at beginning and end

A novelty today was that we sang the Entrance Antiphon before Mass - it was from the same project as the Communion Antiphons

At the evening Mass one thing I have done both as aid to planning but also to add to their repertoire is use a different psalm each week at Communion. This week it was Psalm 129 - Out of the Depths by Scott Soper, in previous weeks it has been 41, 26 and in the coming weeks 33 and 62.
