I am very fortunate to be among the group of organists who play the daily organ recitals at Kelvingrove Art Gallery. The only free, daily recital series in the world, there is a free promenade concert Monday-Saturday at 1pm and every Sunday at 3pm.
Here is a recording of a recent concert finale. Enjoy!
In 1926, Pope Pius XI, the year after instituting The Feast of Christ The King, inaugurated the penultimate Sunday of October as World Mission Sunday. It must have been in the mind of the pontiff that the two are intimately connected and that the mission of the Church is to grow the kingdom of Heaven and establish the Kingship of Jesus Christ in every sphere of life.
My contribution on the feast of St Luke is to share the only extended quote from Our Blessed Lady, the Magnificat which is found in St Luke’s gospel. A close associate of St Paul, St Luke had a tremendous devotion to Our Lady and there is a consensus that says that he gained the insights into the mysteries of the Nativity from Our Lady Herself.
