“Oh sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord , all the earth! Sing to the Lord , bless his name; tell of his salvation from day to day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples! For great is the Lord , and greatly to be praised; he is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols, but the Lord made the heavens. Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and beauty are in his sanctuary” (Psalm 96:1-6).
Today, despite the gathering storm clouds of signs of a great falling away in the West, the earth will be covered with faithful bands of believers—the Church dispersed, the Church militant—fulfilling this happy passage.
Let us, therefore, gather to worship in Spirit and in truth and in confidence: Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised.
