The Nativity of Saint John the Baptist

This Sunday, June 24, is the Solemnity of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist.  Because it is a Solemnity in "Ordinary Time", it will trump the normally numbered Sunday of the Year (in this case, the 12th Sunday, or "Sunday XII").  In two of our hymns this weekend we will recall John the Baptist proclaiming the forthcoming Christ.


Ordinary of the Mass: Laus Tibi Christe (Caudana)
- Next week, we switch to English settings for July-October.

Entrance hymn: Hark! a thrilling voice is sounding ("Merton")
Psalm 71 (Saturday): Since my mother's womb, you have been my strength (Schmitt) (PDF)
Psalm 139 (Sunday): I praise you, for I am wonderfully made (BMP) (PDF)
Alleluia Pange Lingua (BMP) (PDF)
Offertory hymn: On Jordan's bank ("Winchester New")
Communion music:
- (with singers): Jesu, Dulcis Memoria (Mode I / Cologne, arr. Marier) (alternating tunes)
- (w/o singers): You, O child, will be called the Prophet of the Most High (BMP) (PDF)
Meditation hymn: I sought the Lord ("Artavia")
Recessional hymn: For all the saints ("Sine Nomine")

Quod scripsi, scripsi!
