Quiz of the Day #2
This special quiz comes from David Irvine: What composer's birthday is today (and will be our next featured composer)?
(Answer tomorrow)

Where charity and love are, God is there.
We are gathered as one by Christ's love.
Let us rejoice and be glad.
Let us revere and love the living God.
And may we love each other with a sincere heart.
Where charity and love are, God is there.
In the same way as we gather into one body,
be attentive, lest we be divided in mind.
Cease wrongful quarreling and conflict.
And let Christ, our God, dwell in our midst.
Where charity and love are, God is there.
May we along with the blessed saints see Thy face in glory, O Christ, our God:
The joy that is immeasurable and good for ages and into eternity. Amen.
