Song List

I sang at mass last night.  I wasn't supposed to, but the scheduled cantor was going to be out of town.  So, I got the call to sub about 24 hours before game time.  I was planning to attend that mass anyway.

I chatted with the organist a little and we decided that I'd choose the music.  This is what I came up with.

Opening:   #885, All Are Welcome

First Reading:   Jeremiah 31:7-9 (The prophet celebrates the end of the Babylonian Exile. God will bring the people back “from the ends of the world” because “I am a father to Israel.”)

Psalm:   sung, Psalm 126:1-6 (This communal lament recalls God’s mighty deeds of the past, especially the restoration of the people from the Exile, and it calls on God to act once more on behalf of the nation in the current crisis.)

Second Reading:   Hebrews 5:1-6 (Continuing to reflect on the image of the high priest in the Temple as a way to interpret Jesus’ mission, the author of Hebrews points out that high priests did not choose themselves; they were called by God. Jesus was called the same way.)

Alleluia:   sung

Gospel:   Mark 10:46-52 (Bartimaeus calls out for help with the persistence of faith. It is this persistent faith that brings him healing and leads him to discipleship: “Immediately he received his sight and followed [Jesus] on the way.”)

Offertory:   #933, How Great Thou Art

Holy, Holy:   #317, People's Mass
Memorial Acclamation:   #319 B, People's Mass
Amen:   #321, People's Mass
Our Father:   Traditional
Lamb of God:   #322, People's Mass

Communion:   #653, Receive in Your Heart; #685, Amazing Grace

Closing:   #956, Now Thank We All Our God
