Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
PATER NOSTER, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.
So yesterday was the Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary, which Pope Innocent XI made obligatory throughout the entire Western Church in ARSH 1684 as an act of Thanksgiving for the deliverance of Christian Europe from the musloid hordes at the Battle of Vienna the year before in ARSH 1683. King John III Sobieski placed his army under the protection of the Mother of God and she delivered the victory. In Vienna, a new pastry was invented to celebrate the great day. This new pastry was made in the shape of the vanquished musloid half-moon crescent. We now call this pastry by its French name: croissant. Heh. The Viennese, in a further delicious dig, also served their scrumtrulescent new pastry with the exotic new beverage: coffee – which came from the vanquished Turks. Double heh.
Croissant and coffee: truly the breakfast of champions.
Mary, Help of Christians, pray for us.
