Veni Domine!

This week's Communion antiphon has always struck me as particularly beautiful, both for the music and the placement of the text in the liturgical action. "Say to the fearful of heart: Be strong! Fear not! Behold our God will come to save us!" We sing this as the Blessed Sacrament is carried toward us from the sanctuary to the choir: Behold, indeed! Christ is coming to save us!

Wonderful! I wonder whether the community has plans to stream its chanting over the Internet again? Or at least put sound files of one day's offices online. Would love to hear you all again (and pray along). :)

Dear Scott,
We are hoping to do this again someday. In fact, it is in the works, but unfolding slowly. Our old feed ran into security problems. Say a prayer for this project!
