Hymns, 31st Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year B (31 October 2021)

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.

If All Saints Day (1 November) falls on a Sunday, then the 31st Sunday of Ordinary Time may be skipped and the calendar goes straight to the 32nd Sunday - eg in 2020.


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.


Loving God.   Loving other people as yourself - justice, charity, reconciliation.  Christ the priest of the new covenant.
