It’s unusual for us to have an elaborately choral Gospel acclamation, but the Lectionary text for today was virtually that of Lotti’s dramatic miniature. We preceded and followed it with the chant Easter Alleluia, so the whole thing, I trust, felt like a moment for the entire assembly.
Fr Michael’s powerful homily dwelt on the word behold, so Dan Schutte’s simple invitation to adore the Crucified was (fortuitously) well-chosen.
