Liturgical Hints & Ideas

Catholic church music programs in the United States have strayed far from the ideal that is outlined for the Entrance Song in the rubrics of the Sacramentary (Roman Missal). Paragraph 48 of the General Instruction of the Roman Missal reads: "The singing at this time is done either alternately by the choir and the people or in a similar way by the cantor and the people, or entirely by the people, or by the choir alone. [The antiphon and psalm of the Roman Gradual or the Simple Gradual be used...]." While most parishes opt for a standard hymn at the entrance, the rubrical preference for a psalm with antiphon may still be accommodated today. Ideally, we should be singing chant Propers from the official books. If this is not possible, however, there are many published responsorial psalm settings and it should be easy to find a version that matches the entrance psalm specified for each Sunday.

Here is today's specific entrance psalm, and some information about it:

Psalm 17

This lament is one of five psalms titled, "Prayer" (Pss. 78, 86, 90, 102, 142). The psalmist prays while being oppressed by his enemies, addressing to God a plea for hearing (vv.1-6), a plea for mercy (vv.7-12), and a plea for deliverance (vv.13-15). As one unjustly accused, he takes refuge in the temple "court" to await settlement of his "trial" with the Lord. "The fervant petition of a holy man is powerful indeed." (James 5:16)
