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!

Parasti in dulcedine Per il Sacramento

Language: Latin

Parasti in dulcedine mensam homini Deus.
Stillarunt montes suavitantem.
Colles fluxerunt lac & mel cibus.
Venite & commedite exultationis in tabernaculis,
peccatorum venite & commedite
Angelorum escam salutis epulos paradisi viaticum.
O salutis Christe portus de Maria Virgine ortus gloriam nobis dà caelorum
in saecula saeculorum.
Venite & commedite favum cum melle meo,
bibite vinum cum lacte meo,
venite & commedite quia pretiosum est
& admirandum convivium salutiferum
& omni bonitate repletum.
O salutis Christe (...)
Amen, Alleluia, Amen.

Tu as préparé dans la douceur. Pour le Sacrement

Language: French (Français) after the Latin

Tu as préparé dans la douceur la table pour l'homme, ô Dieu.
Les montagnes sont tombées goutte à goutte suavement.
Les collines ont coulé en lait et en miel.
Venez et mangez dans les tabernacles de l'exultation
des pécheurs, venez et mangez
la nourriture des anges, le banquet du salut, le viatique du paradis.
Ô Christ, port du salut, né de la vierge Marie, donne-nous la gloire des cieux
dans les siècles des siècles.
Venez et mangez le gâteau de miel avec mon miel,
buvez le vin avec mon lait,
venez et mangez car il est précieux
et admirable, le banquet du salut
et rempli de toutes les bontés.
Ô Christ, port du salut (...)
Amen. Alléluia. Amen.
