Use it in conjunction with the existing verses as found in Laudate, Celebration Hymnal and other resources.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible in the months ahead.
The Gospel According to St Mark is the shortest of the four gospels but often tells of Jesus’ ministry in more detail.
A short series of video reflections, ‘Exploring Mark’, aims to bring us a little closer to Mark the Evangelist and his account of Jesus, his life and his ministry.
The commentary is provided by Fr Nicholas King SJ, eminent author and Bible scholar, who offers his insights into particular areas of Mark’s Gospel.
Seven videos are available for use by individuals, groups and communities to accompany us in our renewed reading of the Gospel of St Mark through this liturgical year (2017-18, Year B).
With verses from John’s Gospel (chapters 15 and 17) and a simple refrain which is especially easy to sing during the Communion procession, Live on in my love has become a very popular chant at diocesan liturgies, including during the Lourdes pilgrimage, and many people have asked where they can get hold of it.
It is now available to purchase as a downloadable pdf from Liturgical Press’s website.
