Jesus the Choir Director
There are many ways to imagine Christ: as shepherd, king, priest, lamb...and now you can add
to that list.
The one who sings both over us and through us is also the one directing the song in the first place. As head of his Church, it is Jesus Christ teaching us to sing the song of the Lamb at every liturgical celebration in preparation for the liturgy of all liturgies when we meet him face to face as part of that heavenly choir.
Christ himself...becomes the choir director who teaches us the new song.
And the most beautiful part of all: "Even if we cannot sing as beautifully as we would like, even if the music of our liturgies is not performed as well as we would like, in the grace of the Spirit, Christ transfigures our offering and presents it to the Father, who hears only the song of his beloved Son and the members of his body: the hymn of self-giving love" (Carolyn Pirtle).
