Hymns for the 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C (9 October 2016)

Hymns and songs, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time, 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 of these 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 be included in they are particularly relevant.




Readings

First: II Kings - Naaman the leper is healed in the Jordan after following Elisha's instructions.  He returns to Elisha, and acknowledges there is no God except the Lord.

Psalm:  97 - The Lord has shown his salvation to the nations / Sing a new song to the Lord / The Lord has made known his salvation / All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

Second:  II Timothy  - Paul reflects that he is suffering - but they cannot chain up God's good news ... If we have died with him then we shall live with him.

Gospel:  Luke  - Jesus heals the ten lepers - only one returns to give God thanks. ... Go, your faith has saved you .


Themes

Gratefulness.  Suffering.   Recognizing God.   Thankfulness.   God's faithfulness in spite of our unfaithfulness.
