Triduum

I don’t believe I’ll be posting during the Triduum, so I wanted to post some goodies for meditation and reflection during the next few days. May you and your families have a blessed Triduum and Easter!

 

 

Sing, my tongue, the Savior’s glory, of His flesh the mystery sing; of the Blood, all price exceeding, shed by our immortal King, destined, for the world’s redemption, from a noble womb to spring.
Of a pure and spotless Virgin born for us on earth below, He, as Man, with man conversing, stayed, the seeds of truth to sow; then He closed in solemn order wondrously His life of woe.
On the night of that Last Supper, seated with His chosen band, He the Pascal victim eating, first fulfills the Law’s command; then as Food to His Apostles gives Himself with His own hand.
Word-made-Flesh, the bread of nature by His word to Flesh He turns; wine into His Blood He changes; what though sense no change discerns? Only be the heart in earnest, faith her lesson quickly learns.
Down in adoration falling, Lo! the sacred Host we hail; Lo! o’er ancient forms departing, newer rites of grace prevail; faith for all defects supplying, where the feeble senses fail.
To the everlasting Father, and the Son who reigns on high, with the Holy Ghost proceeding forth from Each eternally, be salvation, honor, blessing, might and endless majesty.
Amen. Alleluia.

When I survey the wondrous cross, On which the Prince of Glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, And pour contempt on all my pride

See from his head, his hands, his feet, Sorrow and love flow mingled down, Did ever such love and sorrow meet, Or thorns compose so rich a crown

O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross
Bids me come and die and find that I may truly live
O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross, All who gather here by grace draw near and bless Your name

Were the whole realm of nature mine, That were an offering far too small Love so amazing, so divine Demands my soul, my life, my all

and another…

Yes, that’s Johnny and June Carter Cash.

Alleluia He is Risen!

Behold, I make all things new, says the Lord.
