GOSPEL COMMUNION: 31st Sunday in Ordinary Time

October 31 2021 : 31st Sunday in Ordinary Time

The Missal and Graduale both have the antiphon

You will show me the path of life,
the fullness of joy in your presence, O Lord. (cf. Ps 16:11)

and both specify verses extracted from the same psalm. The Collegeville Composers adopted both of these suggestions, in harmony with the Gospel reading in which a scribe asks Jesus which is the greatest of the commandments.

As we approach the table of the Lord, we enflesh the words of the antiphon and are inspired by the psalmist’s cry “O Lord, it is you who are my portion and cup”.
