✛God Thought✛

The Kyrie – One of the oldest portions of the liturgy, The Kyrie pleas to God's heart:  to have mercy.  It is a prayer of faith, recalling the special word/term of endearment in the Old Testament, 'hesed, the steadfast love/mercy of YHWH.  We sing Lord, have mercy.  Christ, have mercy.  Lord, have mercy.  Three pleas, emphasizing the Trinity.  Having just been forgiven in Absolution, it moves us to the Gloria in Excelis, when we praise God for this mercy.
