You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Oleum effusum

Language: Latin

Oleum effusum est nomen eius, o nomen quod pietatis gratiam
et potentiam maiestatis sonat
Sanctum olim et terribile nomen eius.
Sed currite gentes effusum est nomen quod quicumquae
invocaverit salvus erit.
O nomen nectare dulcius beato,
o nomen nobile pingue delicarum Te cantu dicere Angelico debemus,
o nomen super omne nomen.
Angelorum Deus etiam hominum se Deum nominat.
Effunde Aperi manum tuam
et imple omne animal benedictione venite
ad confitendum nomini Domini resonet in voce exultationis
et laetitiae sonus epulantis.
Oleum effusum (...)
Effusum plane quod non solum coelum terrasquae persudit
Sed aspersit et inferos dum ad hoc santum nomen
flectitur omne genu.
O nomen (…)
