GOSPEL COMMUNION: 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time

June 21, 2020: Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year A)

The Missal antiphon for this Sunday,

The eyes of all look to you, Lord,
and you give them their food in due season

did not quite seem to fit with the Gospel’s words, in which Jesus reminds us of God’s care for us, as for even the tiniest of sparrows. The Collegeville Composers Group, therefore, offered an antiphon from Psalm 104 with a more generic feel. The Lord’s open hand gives us the Bread of Life, all that is required to fill our need.

Following the Missal, Psallite provides psalm verses from Ps 145(144), with a choice between superimposing them on the antiphon or singing them separately.
