Sunday 7-14-19

If you read last week’s bulletin you would have found an excellent article titled “A Not So Ordinary Time” followed by “The Significance of the Liturgical Colors.” 

Today is part of the second group of Sundays of Ordinary Time: the Sundays following Easter. 

BTW You can find past bulletins at the parish website.  Go to and put your cursor on the word “Bulletin” in the blue ribbon and click on the words “bulletin archive” in the dropdown.  You will also find last week’s Liturgical notes which offers information about our new Mass Setting composed by William Gokelman and David Kaufman.  We’ve added the Holy, Holy, Memorial Acclamation (When we eat this bread….) and Amen.

One of my goals for summer is repertoire building. Some of you will remember today’s communion song “Litany For The Earth” (#514) from last week.  (We sang it at offertory on the weekend of 7/7).

Two simple responses are interspersed throughout the petitions:

1.   Pour out your mercy, our out your love.
2.   Heal our common home.

You can find an explanation of litanies as well as well as the songs inspiration; Pope Francis’ encyclical:  “Laudato Si’!” on page 6 of last week’s bulletin.

Finally, we begin the first of four week’s where we will replace the responsorial psalm of the day with a seasonal or “common” psalm.  That means:  the sung response will be DIFFERENT FROM what is printed in the hymnal.                     

Our first seasonal psalm will be David Haas’ setting of psalm 19.  Here is the refrain:  “Lord, you have the words of everlasting life.”

Wishing you a blessed and restful summer,
