Hymn Suggestions, 16th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C (17 July 2016)

A selection of hymns and songs, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time in Year C.

Most are  free-to-use (ie public domain or copyright-free) meaning 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 such hymns are old/traditional - but where possible a variety of styles and genres are included.

A small selection of hymns that are still copyright may also be included if they are particularly relevant.

Art for this week


See lectionary art for this Sunday for suggested pictures and art-works based on today's readings.



Readings

First: Genesis - The Lord appears to Abraham.   He is welcomed, and a feast is prepared for.  The visitor enquires after Sarah, and promises that she will have a son within a year.

Psalm:  14 - The just will live in the presence of the Lord / Lord who shall dwell on your holy mountain / He who does no wrong to his brother / He who keeps his pledge

Second: Colossians - I became the servant of the Church when God made me responsible for delivering God's message to you ... the message which was a mystery for generations is now revealed - Christ among you is now revealed

Gospel:   Luke - Martha welcomes Jesus into her home, and is distracted with the serving - her sister Mary sat at his feet and listened, Jesus says this is the better part.


Themes

Hospitality, service.  Recognising and welcoming Jesus as as our friend.
