Today’s readings offered a number of key phrases that might have triggered musical selections. In the second reading (from 1 Peter) the reference to a royal priesthood, a consecrated nation suggested Christopher Walker’s Out of darkness, and the mention of living stones could have given us Bernadette Farrell’s Christ be our light. Instead we had two songs taking up the image of Christ the cornerstone, in another song by Farrell, and our opening hymn.
It was less easy to find anything suitable echoing the Gospel line I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. What did I miss?
