The Strong Man Undone

Today's Gospel, for Oculi, Lent III, is from St. Luke 11:14-28, on Jesus' healing of the mute, the accusation that he does it through Beelzabub and his reply, and his discourse on the overcoming of the strong man.

As a bonus, I've spliced the choir's rendition of "Jesus, Refuge of the Weary" between the Gospel reading and the sermon. They actually sang it during distribution today, but it serves well here as a segue, as if it were the hymn of the day. The arrangement, incidentally, is my own, a chorale setting.
