Our observance of Remembrance Sunday took the same form as recent years, with the opening hymn leading us from our act of remembrance into the Mass for today’s feast. We sang not just about the delight of worshipping in God’s temple, in the beautiful fourth movement of Brahms’s Requiem, but also, in our closing hymn, of the challenge set out in today’s second reading from Corinthians, for ourselves to be God’s temple:

Make us your building,
sheltering others,
walls made of living stone.
