I’ve been trying to work out when we last had a 10th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year C) that wasn't displaced by Pentecost, Trinity Sunday or (latterly) Corpus Christi, and I think it may well have been 1989. The readings for today speak of the miraculous raising of the dead, and so we sang of healing in our opening hymn. At the preparation of the gifts we had the proper text for today’s entrance antiphon, in Marty Haugen’s simple and engaging setting.
One of the Communion antiphons in the Missal for today is
God is love,
and whoever abides in love
abides in God,
and God in him.
and this found an echo both in our closing hymn, and of course in our Communion song itself, Bob Hurd’s serenely wistful setting of the ancient Christian hymn extolling the fruits of divine love.
