Notes: Responsorial refrain to reading of Psalm 14. Tone included for chanting. The choice of refrain will reflect a particular appropriation of the psalm. The refrain provided here resists the inclination to hear the psalm as a reference to other people, owning up to the fact that all of us struggle with tendencies to deny God. The refrain of 14A is a cry for help and deliverance on behalf of oppressed people.
