In today’s second reading we heard:
when we cannot choose words in order to pray properly, the Spirit himself expresses our plea in a way that could never be put into words, and God who knows everything in our hearts knows perfectly well what he means
which led us to Anne Quigley’s There is a longing in our hearts. The Gospel reading had these words:
I will speak to you in parables and expound things hidden since the foundation of the world
and this gave us Bernadette Farrell’s All that is hidden.
The Communion antiphon, finally, was
The Lord keeps in our minds the wonderful things he has done. He is compassion and love; he always provides for his faithful.
John Rutter’s irresistible For the beauty of the earth is a joyful hymn in praise of this providence.
