I call you friends, says the Lord,
because I have made known to you
everything I have learnt from my Father. Alleluia!
Gospel Acclamation for the 17th Sunday of Ordinary Time
The dignity that God affords to us! Especially when, though he may well have made known to us all he has learnt from the Father, we have yet to understand all that, and to put it into practice.
Hopefully as we sing to give praise to God for his goodness we do – not just sing, but give praise, mindful of what we have to give thanks for…
