Sunday Psalm #263
September 3, 2017
If today you hear his voice
Twenty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time (A)
September 10, 2017
Our psalm settings in English are by Tinnah M. dela Rosa, and Patrick John M. Fernandez while our psalm setting in Filipino is by Dennis N. Marasigan.
When you sing this psalm, you invite the assembly to be faithful to genuine worship. The psalm indicates that human beings have a poor track record in this regard. As you sing it, then you enact what the first reading and gospel demand: you speak honestly to the people about their behavior and invite them to conversion. As you prepare to sing this psalm, you might spend some time thanking God for those persons in your life who have challenged your behavior when it was not faithful. What gave them the courage to be so honest? What gave you the grace to hear what they were saying? (Cf. Living Liturgy 2011, p. 209)
