GOSPEL COMMUNION: 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

November 17, 2019: 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Another mosaic antiphon, taking its rise from this Sunday’s Gospel:

Do not be terrified (Luke 21:9)

and

By your perseverance you will secure your lives. (Luke 21:19)

together with one of the Communion antiphons from the 1998 Antiphonal (Mark 11:2-23):

Amen, says the Lord:
Whatever you pray for,
believe it is yours,
and so it will be.

The Collegeville Composers reused an antiphon relating to the Gospel of Jairus’s daughter and the woman with the issue of blood from the 13th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B, with similar sentiments (Mark 5:35. 34):

“Do not be afraid; just have faith.”
“[Daughter,] your faith has saved you. [Go in peace]”

The psalm verses major on belief and trust in God, using extracts from Psalms 31 and 73, the latter following a suggestion in the 1998 Antiphonal and 2010 Antiphonary. The verses may be superimposed on the antiphon or sung separately.
