In today’s Gospel reading from St Luke we heard our Lord’s words:
Pray continually… Will not God see justice done to his chosen who cry to him day and night?
We responded with Lassus’s setting of similar words from Ps 101(102):
O Lord, hear my prayer, and let my cry come to you.
Do not turn your face from me.
Elsewhere we sang repeatedly of our hope in God, in the opening and closing hymns, in the Responsorial Psalm, and in David Ogden’s peaceful and thoughtful setting of the same psalm text.
