“Harp and Hymn”

>> Readings

26 November 2018

John has a vision and hears the “sound of the ocean or the roar of thunder.” It seemed to John “to be the sound of harpists playing their harps.” They accompanied the “one hundred and forty four thousand redeemed” who sang a “new hymn” (Rev 14).

The redeemed sang a “new hymn,” because they lived a “new life,” because Jesus rose to “new life.”

“Harp and hymn” – music and song: a mark of the redeemed.

In our parishes, how can we elevate our “harps and hymns”?

Truth can compel, but beauty always attracts.

Music is beauty.
