Hymns, 31st Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year B (4 November 2018)

Hymns and song suggestions, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the 31st Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year B.

Many are free-to-use (ie public domain or copyright-free) and so the words can be copied and sung to at least one tune with no concerns about copyright or performance licensing - sometimes in a limited setting. Many of these hymns are old / traditional - but where possible a variety of styles and genres are included.

A small selection of hymns that may still be copyright are also included, if these are particularly appropriate.







Readings

First:  Deuteronomy  - Moses said to the people ... you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and strength.

Psalm: 17 -  I love you Lord, my strength

Second: Hebrews - Christ remains forever, he can never lose his priesthood

Gospel: Mark  - Which is the first commandment?   Love the Lord your God ... love your neighbour as yourself.


Themes

Loving God.   Loving other people as yourself - justice, charity, reconciliation.
