Special Sacred Music for Lent

Share This Post

electric-organ-consoleAs part of this parish’s Lenten observance, we are presenting Jon Gillock’s performance of Olivier Messiaen’s Book of the Holy Sacrament on Tuesday, March 5. This was Messiaen’s final work for organ, and is without question one of the most important works of music composed in the 20th Century. Some of the movements are meditations on Christ’s life, others on the Eucharist. Attending a performance of this piece is a major spiritual journey.

June 4

For Trinity Sunday, the rector shares a prayer from the Iona Community in Scotland:

I am bending my knee

in the eye of the God who created me

In the eye of the Son who died for me

In the eye of the Spirit who moves me

In love and in desire.

For the many gifts you have bestowed on me

Each day and night

Each sea and land

Each weather fair

Each calm, each wild

Thanks be to you, O God.
