Third Sunday of Lent (Year A)

Liturgical Color: Purple

A. Readings

1R: Exodus 17:3-7. While in the desert, the Israelites complained to Moses because they were thirsty. Moses prayed to God, who miraculously caused water to flow from rock. 

RP: 95 If today you hear His voice, harden not your hearts. 

2R: In Romans 5:1-2, 5-8, we can read that Christ died for us sinners. 

G: John 4:5-42 is about Jesus and the Samaritan Woman whom Jesus met at Jacob’s Well. 

B. Notes 

1. Walang Gloria in Excelsis Deo. Holy Thursday na ulit maririnig ang Gloria. Magfafasting tayo from the mirth of the angels when they sang Glory to God in the highest.

2. Walang Alleluia. 

3. Walang flowers sa altar.

4. Turn down the volume. Minimize the musical instruments. Musical instruments during Lent should give only the bare minimum, or just the necessary support to the singing. Sustenance lang. Baka nga mas maganda pa ang kalabasan kung mag-a capella tayo. Kailangan maramdaman and ma-realize ng mga taong assembled that this season is very distinct from other liturgical seasons, most especially Easter, and one way of doing that is ibang style ng ating pagiging liturgical music leader. 

5. Instrumental solos are bawal kapag Lent. When movement of people ends (such as in the processional songs in entrance, preparation of the gifts, communion), immediately find an ending for the processional song. Halimbawa, sa communion, wala na namang taong nakapila para tumanggap ng communion. Huwag nang kumanta. Find an end. Tumahimik. Give the congregation an opportunity for silent reflection. Yung ibang parishes nga, tinitigil talaga yung kanta, no matter what part they are in, when movement of people ceases. Huwag nang maglagay ng 2nd communion song. People should be made aware to reflect so they won’t chit-chat. Silence is far better during the season of Lent.

6. During service songs, if you can apply these to the tune of pasyon, the congregation will surely notice, and thereby realize that this is a distinct season altogether. For example, if you can sing si Kristo ay namatay into the tune of pasyon...ginawa yan minsan sa parish. Also, you're encouraging enculturation.

C. Song Line up suggestions 


1. Ang Tawag N’ya (Ofrasio, Hontiveros)
