What is your opinion on receiving communion kneeling in the Novus Ordo?
Víctimæ pascháli laudes
Agnus redémit oves:
Christus ínnocens Patri
Mors et vita duéllo
dux vitæ mórtuus,
Dic nobis María,
quid vidísti in via?
Sepúlcrum Christi vivéntis,
et gloriam vidi resurgéntis:
sudárium, et vestes.
Surréxit Christus spes mea:
præcédet suos in Galilaéam.
Scimus Christum surrexísse a mortuis vere:
tu nobis, victor Rex, miserére.
…this is the best thing.
Bald eagle fistbump. Holy shit.
(Pretty sure that’s some sort of puppet or animatronic though.)
Maybe but then again I’ve seen birds do things like that in real life. Birds are smart.
Things I can imagine going down between the First and Third Persons of the Holy Trinity, because Easter.
Because he clung to me, I shall free him:
I shall lift him up because he knows my name.
He will call upon me and for my part, I will hear him:
I am with him in his time of trouble.
I shall rescue him and lead him to glory.
I shall fill him with length of days
and show him my salvation.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
World without end. Amen.
Faithful Cross, above all other,
one and only noble Tree.
none in foliage, none in blossom,
none in fruit thy peer may be.
Sweet the wood and sweet the iron,
and thy load, most sweet is he.
Bend, O lofty Tree, thy branches,
thy too rigid sinews bend;
and awhile the stubborn harshness,
which thy birth bestowed, suspend;
and the limbs of heaven’s high Monarch
gently on thine arms extend.
Thou alone wast counted worthy
this world’s ransom to sustain,
that a shipwrecked race for ever
might a port of refuge gain,
with the sacred Blood anointed
of the Lamb for sinners slain.
Now the thirty years are ended
which on earth he willed to see.
Willingly he meets his passion,
born to set his people free:
on the cross the Lamb is lifted,
there the sacrifice to be.
There the nails and spear he suffers,
vinegar and gall and reed.
From his sacred body piercèd
blood and water both proceed:
precious flood, which all creation
from the stain of sin hath freed.
