  • Canticum Quicumque
    (Canticum Quicumque * Symbolum Athanasium)
     
    Whosoever willeth to be saved, * before all things it is necessary that he hold the Catholic faith.
     Which faith except every one do keep whole and undefiled, * without doubt he shall perish eternally.
     Now the Catholic faith is this, * that we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity.
     Neither confounding the Persons, * nor dividing the substance.
     For there is one Person of the Father, another of the Son, * and another of the Holy Ghost.
     But the Godhead of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost is one, * the Glory Equal, the Majesty Co-Eternal.
     Such as the Father is, such is the Son, * and such is the Holy Ghost.
     The Father Uncreated, the Son Uncreated, * and the Holy Ghost Uncreated.
     The Father Infinite, the Son Infinite, * and the Holy Ghost Infinite. * The Father Eternal, the Son Eternal, * and the Holy Ghost Eternal.
     And yet they are not three Eternals, * but one Eternal.
     As also they are not three Uncreated, nor three Infinites, * but One Uncreated, and One Infinite.
     So likewise the Father is Almighty, the Son Almighty, * and the Holy Ghost Almighty.
     And yet they are not three Almighties, * but One Almighty.
     So the Father is God, the Son God, * and the Holy Ghost God.
     And yet they are not three Gods, * but One God.
     So the Father is Lord, the Son Lord, * and the Holy Ghost Lord.
     And yet they are not three Lords, * but One Lord.
     For, like as we are compelled by Christian truth to acknowledge every Person by Himself to be God and Lord, * so are we forbidden by the Catholic Religion to say, there be three Gods or three Lords.
     The Father is made of none, * neither created, nor begotten.
     The Son is of the Father alone: * not made, nor created, but begotten.
     The Holy Ghost is of the Father, and the Son: * not made, nor created, nor begotten, but proceeding.
     So there is One Father, not three Fathers; one Son, not three Sons; * one Holy Ghost, not three Holy Ghosts.
     And in this Trinity is nothing afore or after, nothing is greater or less; * but the whole three Persons are Co-Eternal together, and Co-Equal.
     So that in all things, as is aforesaid, * the Unity in Trinity, and the Trinity in Unity is to be worshipped.
     He therefore that willeth to be safe, * let him thus think of the Trinity.
     But it is necessary to eternal salvation, * that he also believe faithfully the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ.
     The right Faith therefore is, that we believe and confess, * that our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is God and man.
     God, of the Substance of the Father, Begotten before the worlds: * and Man, of the substance of His mother, born in the world.
     Perfect God, Perfect Man, * of a reasoning soul and human flesh subsisting.
     Equal to the Father as touching His Godhead, * inferior to the Father as touching His Manhood.
     Who, although He be God and Man, * yet He is not two, but One Christ.
     One, however, not by conversion of the Godhead into Flesh, * but by taking of the Manhood into God.
     One altogether, not by confusion of Substance, * but by Unity of Person.
     For as the reasoning soul and flesh is one man, * so God and man is One Christ.
     Who suffered for our salvation, descended into hell, * rose again the third day from the dead.
     He ascended into heaven, He sitteth on the right hand of the Father, God Almighty, * from whence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
     At whose coming all men shall rise again with their bodies, * and shall give account for their own works.
     And they that have done good shall go into life eternal, * but they that have done evil into eternal fire.
     This is the Catholic Faith, * which except a man believe faithfully and firmly, he cannot be safe.
    V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
    R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

    Ant. Glory be to thee, O equal Trinity * one Deity, from before all ages, so now and for evermore.
    But one thing is necessary. Mary hath chosen the best part, which shall not be taken away from her.

  • Hymn {from the Proper of the season}
    O God, by whose command is swayed
    This ordered world which thou hast made;
    Parent of heavenly clemency,
    In nature One, in persons Three;

    Assist us while our minds we raise,
    Inflamed with thy immortal praise;
    That with our sober thoughts, we may
    Forever our thanksgiving pay.

    May age by age thy wonders tell,
    Eternal praise thy works reveal,
    And sing with the celestial host
    The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
    Amen.

    O the depth of the riches of the wisdom and of the knowledge of God! How incomprehensible are his judgments, and how unsearchable his ways!
    R. Thanks be to God.

    Hymn
    O thou, who dost all nature sway,
    Dread Trinity in Unity,
    Accept the trembling praise we pay
    To thy eternal majesty.

    The star that heralds in the dawn
    Is slowly fading in the skies;
    The darkness melts—O thou true light,
    Upon our darkened souls arise.

    To God the Father glory be,
    And to the sole-begotten Son,
    And Holy Ghost co-equally,
    While everlasting ages run.
    Amen.

    V. Bless we the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
    R. Let us praise and exalt Him above all for ever.

  • Contents   Laudes Divinae
    Divine Praises   Euch

    The Divine Praises are a series of acclamations praising God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Blessed Mother, St. Joseph and all the angels and saints. It was written originally in Italian in 1797 by Luigi Felici, S.J. to make reparations against blasphemy and profanity. Since then it has been added to by recent Popes giving us this present form. The Divine Praises are often used at Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

    BENEDICTUS Deus.    BLESSED be God.
    Benedictum Nomen Sanctum eius.    Blessed be His Holy Name.
    Benedictus Iesus Christus, verus Deus et verus homo.    Blessed be Jesus Christ, true God and true man.
    Benedictum Nomen Iesu.    Blessed be the name of Jesus.
    Benedictum Cor eius sacratissimum.    Blessed be His Most Sacred Heart.
    Benedictus Sanguis eius pretiosissimus.    Blessed be His Most Precious Blood.
    Benedictus Iesus in sanctissimo altaris Sacramento.    Blessed be Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.
    Benedictus Sanctus Spiritus, Paraclitus.    Blessed be the Holy Ghost the Paraclete.
    Benedicta excelsa Mater Dei, Maria sanctissima.    Blessed be the great Mother of God, Mary Most Holy.
    Benedicta sancta eius et immaculata Conceptio.    Blessed be her holy and Immaculate Conception.
    Benedicta eius gloriosa Assumptio.    Blessed be her glorious Assumption.
    Benedictum nomen Mariae, Virginis et Matris.    Blessed be the name of Mary, Virgin and Mother.
    Benedictus sanctus Ioseph, eius castissimus Sponsus.    Blessed be St. Joseph, her most chaste spouse.
    Benedictus Deus in Angelis suis, et in Sanctis suis.    Blessed be God in His Angels and in His Saints.

    Hymn
    As fades the glowing orb of day,
    To thee, great source of light, we pray;
    Blest Three in One, to every heart
    thy beams of life and love impart.

    At early dawn, at close of day,
    To thee our vows we humbly pay;
    May we, mid joys that never end,
    With thy bright saints in homage bend.

    To God the Father, and the Son,
    And Holy Spirit, Three in One,
    Be endless glory, as before
    The world began, so evermore.
    Amen.

    V. Bless we the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost.

  • Paradiso Canto XXXIII
    "O virgin mother, daughter of thy Son,
    Created beings all in lowliness
    Surpassing, as in height, above them all,
    Term by th' eternal counsel pre-ordain'd,
    Ennobler of thy nature, so advanc'd
    In thee, that its great Maker did not scorn,
    Himself, in his own work enclos'd to dwell!
    For in thy womb rekindling shone the love
    Reveal'd, whose genial influence makes now
    This flower to germin in eternal peace!
    Here thou to us, of charity and love,
    Art, as the noon-day torch: and art, beneath,
    To mortal men, of hope a living spring.
    So mighty art thou, lady! and so great,
    That he who grace desireth, and comes not
    To thee for aidance, fain would have desire
    Fly without wings.  Nor only him who asks,
    Thy bounty succours, but doth freely oft
    Forerun the asking.  Whatsoe'er may be
    Of excellence in creature, pity mild,
    Relenting mercy, large munificence,
    Are all combin'd in thee.  Here kneeleth one,
    Who of all spirits hath review'd the state,
    From the world's lowest gap unto this height.
    Suppliant to thee he kneels, imploring grace
    For virtue, yet more high to lift his ken
    Toward the bliss supreme.  And I, who ne'er
    Coveted sight, more fondly, for myself,
    Than now for him, my prayers to thee prefer,
    (And pray they be not scant) that thou wouldst drive
    Each cloud of his mortality away;
    That on the sovran pleasure he may gaze.
    This also I entreat of thee, O queen!
    Who canst do what thou wilt! that in him thou
    Wouldst after all he hath beheld, preserve
    Affection sound, and human passions quell.
    Lo!  Where, with Beatrice, many a saint
    Stretch their clasp'd hands, in furtherance of my suit!"

         The eyes, that heav'n with love and awe regards,
    Fix'd on the suitor, witness'd, how benign
    She looks on pious pray'rs: then fasten'd they
    On th' everlasting light, wherein no eye
    Of creature, as may well be thought, so far
    Can travel inward.  I, meanwhile, who drew
    Near to the limit, where all wishes end,
    The ardour of my wish (for so behooved),
    Ended within me. Beck'ning smil'd the sage,
    That I should look aloft: but, ere he bade,
    Already of myself aloft I look'd;
    For visual strength, refining more and more,
    Bare me into the ray authentical
    Of sovran light.  Thenceforward, what I saw,
    Was not for words to speak, nor memory's self
    To stand against such outrage on her skill.
    As one, who from a dream awaken'd, straight,
    All he hath seen forgets; yet still retains
    Impression of the feeling in his dream;
    E'en such am I: for all the vision dies,
    As 't were, away; and yet the sense of sweet,
    That sprang from it, still trickles in my heart.
    Thus in the sun-thaw is the snow unseal'd;
    Thus in the winds on flitting leaves was lost
    The Sybil's sentence.  O eternal beam!
    (Whose height what reach of mortal thought may soar?)
    Yield me again some little particle
    Of what thou then appearedst, give my tongue
    Power, but to leave one sparkle of thy glory,
    Unto the race to come, that shall not lose
    Thy triumph wholly, if thou waken aught
    Of memory in me, and endure to hear
    The record sound in this unequal strain.

         Such keenness from the living ray I met,
    That, if mine eyes had turn'd away, methinks,
    I had been lost; but, so embolden'd, on
    I pass'd, as I remember, till my view
    Hover'd the brink of dread infinitude.

         O grace! unenvying of thy boon! that gav'st
    Boldness to fix so earnestly my ken
    On th' everlasting splendour, that I look'd,
    While sight was unconsum'd, and, in that depth,
    Saw in one volume clasp'd of love, whatever
    The universe unfolds; all properties
    Of substance and of accident, beheld,
    Compounded, yet one individual light
    The whole.  And of such bond methinks I saw
    The universal form: for that whenever
    I do but speak of it, my soul dilates
    Beyond her proper self; and, till I speak,
    One moment seems a longer lethargy,
    Than five-and-twenty ages had appear'd
    To that emprize, that first made Neptune wonder
    At Argo's shadow darkening on his flood.

         With fixed heed, suspense and motionless,
    Wond'ring I gaz'd; and admiration still
    Was kindled, as I gaz'd.  It may not be,
    That one, who looks upon that light, can turn
    To other object, willingly, his view.
    For all the good, that will may covet, there
    Is summ'd; and all, elsewhere defective found,
    Complete.  My tongue shall utter now, no more
    E'en what remembrance keeps, than could the babe's
    That yet is moisten'd at his mother's breast.
    Not that the semblance of the living light
    Was chang'd (that ever as at first remain'd)
    But that my vision quickening, in that sole
    Appearance, still new miracles descry'd,
    And toil'd me with the change.  In that abyss
    Of radiance, clear and lofty, seem'd methought,
    Three orbs of triple hue clipt in one bound:
    And, from another, one reflected seem'd,
    As rainbow is from rainbow: and the third
    Seem'd fire, breath'd equally from both.  Oh speech
    How feeble and how faint art thou, to give
    Conception birth!  Yet this to what I saw
    Is less than little.  Oh eternal light!
    Sole in thyself that dwellst; and of thyself
    Sole understood, past, present, or to come!
    Thou smiledst; on that circling, which in thee
    Seem'd as reflected splendour, while I mus'd;
    For I therein, methought, in its own hue
    Beheld our image painted: steadfastly
    I therefore por'd upon the view.  As one
    Who vers'd in geometric lore, would fain
    Measure the circle; and, though pondering long
    And deeply, that beginning, which he needs,
    Finds not; e'en such was I, intent to scan
    The novel wonder, and trace out the form,
    How to the circle fitted, and therein
    How plac'd: but the flight was not for my wing;
    Had not a flash darted athwart my mind,
    And in the spleen unfolded what it sought.

         Here vigour fail'd the tow'ring fantasy:
    But yet the will roll'd onward, like a wheel
    In even motion, by the Love impell'd,
    That moves the sun in heav'n and all the stars.
    But one thing is necessary. Mary hath chosen the best part, which shall not be taken away from her.

Through Jesus Christ Our Lord. R. Amen.



    Can you find this in Latin?
    We conclude logically that religion can give an efficacious and truly realistic answer to the great modern problems only if it is a religion that is profoundly lived, not simply a superficial and cheap religion made up of some vocal prayers and some ceremonies...

    But one thing is necessary. Mary hath chosen the best part, which shall not be taken away from her.
    Luke 10:42
