Entrance Antiphon Cf Ps 98(97):1-2:O sing a new song to the Lord, for he has worked wonders; in sight of the nations he has shown his deliverance, alleluia.Gospel Verse, Year C, John 13:34:I give you a new commandment, says the Lord: love one another as I have loved you.Love is man’s first and constant vocation. Love is the summary of the whole Bible. Love is the secret of the saints, the necessary way to God. It is the means to reveal God’s heart to other men. But the beauty of God’s love must show itself fresh and new in every Christian; for beauty, to delight and attract, must be fresh as the morning. Every deed of vital love, performed by us in our personality which nature and grace have fashioned, is like the morning of time itself. “God is love” in its mysterious fullness and infinite freshness. Utterly King and Lord, He unites the baptized of every nation in the one Mystical Body of Christ, by the one Holy Spirit, under the one Mother Mary.
