Sunday's Word, is a publication prepared in response to an expressed pastoral need. It is for use in conjunction with a hymnal and service book or other music resource, and is intended for those who wish to preread the scriptures of the day as a preparation for the celebration, or who have difficulty hearing, or feel the need to read the text as it is proclaimed for full comprehension. Similarly, the eucharistic prayers are also included.
It contains the assembly's responsorial psalm refrain for each Sunday and major feast. The full version of the psalms (keyboard accompaniments, guitar chords, and cantor verses) are found in Gather Lectionary Psalms: Michel Guimont (Sold Separately, G-8150, $34.95). Sunday's Word also contains the Order of Mass, with the assembly's responses from Norah Duncan IV's setting, Holy Name of Jesus Mass (G-8764). The Choral / Accompaniment Edition with the keyboard accompaniments and choral parts and other editions are available from GIA.
The weekday section includes the entrance antiphon, psalm response, gospel verse, and communion antiphon for all feasts, memorials, and weekdays of the year. In addition, the Order of Mass texts including both the Nicene Creed and the Apostle's Creed are printed on the inside front cover for convenience.
