Today’s antiphon relates to the longer form of today’s Gospel, Mark 10:2-16, specifically —
… Jesus … said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not prevent them,
for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” (Mark 10:14)
—treated as a constantly-repeating ostinato, with superimposed verses from Jeremiah 31:10-14 following a suggestion in the 1998 ICEL Antiphonary.
As we process to Communion, we follow the Lord’s call to come to him, while Jeremiah proclaims the good things that the Lord does for us.
