This Chant responsory is from the Gospel according to St. John. The image is of St. Padre Pio receiving Holy Eucharist. The Latin and English follow:
Verbum caro factum est et habitavit in nobis.
Et vidimus gloriam eius,gloriam quasi Unigeniti a Patre, plenum gratiae et veritatis.
In principio erat Verbum, et Verbum erat apud Deum, et Deus erat Verbum.
Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto.
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. (John 1:14)
And we have beheld His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14)
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1)
And we have beheld His glory…
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
And we have beheld His glory…
The Catholic Church, i.e. Church of Christ, has always held abortion at all stages to be the destruction of an innocent life. Long before science had “proven” it, the Church saw that life truly began at the moment of conception. Because it is a full person, he/she is to be protected from conception. I used various authorities of Scripture, Tradition and Canon Law to reaffirm that ALL CHRISTIANS MUST REJECT ABORTION. To support it, to have one, or to perform one is a heinous abomination.
The song in the background is the Illatio from the Mozarabic Rite Liturgy.
Homily #120610 ( 18min) Play – Corpus Christi is the 2nd great Feast of the Eucharist in the liturgical calendar. On Maundy Thursday we think about how this great Sacrament comes to us, and now we celebrate this Feast as a remembrance of Our Lord’s presence in a particular way. We remember the promise of Our Lord when he said He will be with us till the end of time.

This is the angelic salutation to the Virgin Mary, Theotokos, in Slavonic. The Slavonic lyrics with the phonetic and English follow:
Богородице дѣво, радѹйсѧ, Благодатнаѧ Марїе, Господь съ тобою:
благословена Ты въ женахъ, и благословенъ плодъ чрева Твоегω;
якω Спаса родила еси дѹшъ нашихъ.
Bogoroditse Djevo, raduisya, Blagodatnaya Marie, Gospod s’ toboyu:
Blagoslovyena tyh v’ zhenakh, Y blagoslovyen plod chreva Tvoyego, yako Spasa rodila yesi dush nashikh.
Theotokos Virgin, rejoice, Mary full of grace, The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, for thou hast borne the Saviour of our souls.
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.
