Podcast: 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C

This weekend we celebrate the 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, year C. As we wind down the liturgical year, we are approaching the last Sunday solemnity in just a few weeks: that of Christ the King.

The psalms in these final Sundays also proclaim his coming, like we have for today with Psalm 17:

“Lord, when your glory appears, my joy will be full.”

The communion antiphon for today is from the famous Psalm 23:

“The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
Fresh and green are the pastures where he gives me repose,
near restful waters he leads me.”

Podcast Transcript

Hi and welcome to the Modern Psalmist Podcast. I’m Rebecca De La Torre.

This weekend we celebrate the 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, year C. As we wind down the liturgical year, we are approaching the last Sunday solemnity in just a few weeks: that of Christ the King.

The general theme for these remaining days of the liturgical calendar is Christ’s second coming, the end of the current age, and the new age of life in the Kingdom of God. In the gospel readings we hear Jesus prophesy about how different life will be in the new age.

Specifically, in the gospel reading for today, take from Luke chapter 20, Jesus says of those who are deemed worthy of eternal life in verse 36, that:

“They can no longer die,
for they are like angels;
and they are the children of God
because they are the ones who will rise.”

The psalms in these final Sundays also proclaim his coming, like we have for today with Psalm 17:

“Lord, when your glory appears, my joy will be full.”

Psalm 17: When Your Glory Appears

The communion antiphon for today is from the famous Psalm 23:

“The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
Fresh and green are the pastures where he gives me repose,
near restful waters he leads me.”

The verses are taken from Psalm 23, and communicate a sense of peaceful confidence in the Lord, forever hoping in him. Thus continuing to remind us of the new life his faithful ones will receive at the coming of Christ as King of the Universe.

Communion Antiphon – 32nd OT (Psalm 23:1-2)

We celebrated All Souls Day this past week, and the psalm for that day matches the communion antiphon for today, Psalm 23:

“The Lord is my shepherd, there is nothing I shall want.”

So in honor of All Soul’s day, I’m featuring Psalm 23 from that same solemnity. I pray that the peaceful and tranquil sounds remind you of the peace that the Lord has promised to give to those who put their hope in Him.

Psalm 23: The Lord Is My Shepherd

That was “Psalm 23: The Lord Is My Shepherd” for All Soul’s Day and also featured for today, the 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, year C. We have two more Sundays remaining in cycle C of the liturgical calendar, and then we return to Year A with the first Sunday of Advent on November 27th.

All sheet music and recordings for the songs featured on this podcast can be found in the show notes as well as on TheModernPsalmist.com.

Have a blessed week.
