Recessional Fight the good fight

It was a day for trying to live up to the challenges set out in the readings. Our offertory and communion songs both aimed to capture the humility of the tax collector in today’s Gospel story. Then for our recessional hymn we took up St Paul’s good fight from the second reading.

We rejoiced too, in thanksgiving after Communion, taking up the idea expressed in the antiphon:

We will rejoice at the victory of God and make our boast in his great name.

in the exuberant setting of the opening of Psalm 99 by Lassus. We may have got carried away at the end.
