|Which reminds me of when I was at St. Andrew's Abbey, in Denver, CO. As one side of the congregation sang the verse, the opposite side would sing Jesu, Jesu, Jesu at the asterisk, to remind us that all Psalms were about Jesus. I like this so much, that we tried it in Honduras, and many thought it added to the services.|

|The Old Testament is part of the Christian Bible and therefore the God of Israel is the Holy Trinity. The psalm prayers bring out the Trinitarian and Christological reading of the psalm. This may have been obvious to worshipers in a bygone era. It is not obvious to worshipers today. The Gloria Patri helps to remind worshipers of the Christian use and interpretation of the psalms. Whatever the Hebrew scriptures may be, the Old Testament is Christian scripture---including the Septuagint written in Greek and quoted in the NT.|

From a pastoral perspective, if the GP is not used at the end of the psalm it might not be used at all in the eucharistic liturgy. It's too important a liturgical piece for our people to have no actual use of it. I vote to restore it.
Frank, would you now please be Owl and argue the other position that the Hebrew scriptures need no Trinitarian conclusion?
