Hymn suggestions for the 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C (6 November 2016)

A selection of hymns and songs, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the thirty-second Sunday of 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.  Many such hymns are old/traditional - but where possible a variety of styles / genres are included.

A small selection of hymns that are still be copyright may also included where they are a particularly good for for the theme(s).





Readings

First: Maccabees - Seven brothers are tortured for their faith - they die confident that the King of the world will raise them up again.

Psalm 16 : I shall be filled when I awake with the sight of your glory O Lord / Lord hear a cause that is just / I kept my feet firmly in your paths / Guard me as the apple of your eye 

Second: II Thessalonians :  Pray that the Lord may strengthen .. may the Lord turn your hearts towards the love of God and the fortitude of Christ.

Gospel: Luke  - The Saducees try to trick Jesus with a question about brothers marrying their brother's widow.   Jesus teaches them about the resurrection - God is God of the living, not the dead.


Themes

Hope.  Faith.   Resurrection / eternal life - our belief in the future that Christ promised, rather than speculation about what life after death is like.
