Traying to give a structure to these Sundays of John 6 is challenge - to give them both a distinctiveness and a commonality. As it is the summer there is a sense our Communion repertoire is being arranged over a number of Sundays. I am sure I have siad this before but when we have a priest who prefers Penitential Act I ( I confess) to 3 the contrast in key between Kyrie (F#m) and Gloria (C) is quite stark and I suspect not planned by the composers.

For the Summer months I do a monthly Mass leaflet, quite a squeeze when there are 5 weeks. It has the same as the weekly leaflet: Kyrie, Gloria, Readings with reference and caption, psalm response, Eucharistic Acclamations, Lamb of God and Communion antiphon. As they are used over a number of Sundays I have noticed that people turn to the Liturgy of the Word but do not turn the page back for the Eucharistic Acclamations - because they are known. I also use one Memorial Acclamation per month - July is C (so that August this year will be B When we eat this Bread. One final comment about the leaflet is that I rarely put the music for the Gospel Acclamation in - partly because of space but also an assumption that this is something people should know.

It was good to celebrate this on a Sunday. Choosing music it has a feel of Advent but not Advent. The most obvious difference was Psalm 138 a psalm loved by composers but less so by the Lectionary. In addition to the responsorial psalm we did James Walsh's elegant setting.
