ALL SOULS DAY  Lectionary #668
[Additional readings may be chosen from the Masses for the Dead, #1011-1015.]

Note: The readings assigned to All Souls offer three options for the first reading, three options for the responsorial psalm, thirteen options for the second reading, and twelve options for the Gospel.

Songs for the Liturgy

Appropriate music for this day would include selections from the existing parish funeral repertoire and some music chosen from the repertoire for All Saints listed above. It might be good to incorporate a setting of the Hymn of Farewell that you use at funerals (or that you plan to begin using at funerals) in the music for this day.

Suggested Responsorial Psalm:  Ps (26) 27

The Lectionary provides a rich variety of responsorial psalms, many of which are familiar to worshiping communities. Psalm 27, with its spirit of confident hope, makes it a fitting choice for the fall season and the last weeks of Ordinary Time.
