Another of the great Angelic Doctor, St. Thomas Aquinas’ hymns of the Holy Eucharist, the flesh and blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. As should be with all Christians, the Eucharist was a central focus of Aquinas’ life. The Latin text and English translation follow:
Panis angelicus fit panis hominum;
Dat panis coelicus figuris terminum:
O res mirabilis! Manducat Dominum
Pauper, servus et humilis.
Te trina Deitas unaque poscimus:
Sic nos tu visita, sicut te colimus;
Per tuas semitas duc nos quo tendimus,
Ad lucem quam inhabitas. Amen.
The angelic bread becomes the bread of men;
The heavenly bread ends all prefigurations:
What wonder! The Lord is eaten by a poor and humble servant.
Triune God, we beg of you: visit us, just as we worship you.
By your ways, lead us where we are heading, to the light in which you dwell. Amen.
The Divine Liturgy, θεία λειτουργία, of St. John Chrysostom is the second most practiced Liturgy in Christendom (next to the Roman rite Mass). This video is a tribute to the great Liturgy of the east, not a live presentation of it. This is the primarily used Divine Liturgy of the Eastern Churches (Orthodox and Catholic). This video contains a number of images of the Liturgy in practice across a wide array of churches and rites. The musical selections, from the CD “Sacred Treasures” are (in order) the Great Ektenia, Cherubic Hymn, Amen and With Thy Spirit, and Otche Nash. God bless you all.
