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.
Remember, He was placed in a manger, which is a FEED TROUGH, because He is the True Food that comes down from heaven. His swaddling cloths foretold His burial shroud. Oh, and remember that Bethlehem literally means “House of Bread” in Hebrew, and literally translates to “House of Lamb” and “House of Meat” in Aramaic. Because the physical, substantial presence of the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Christ in the Eucharist is foretold and proclaimed on pretty much every page of the Bible. Because without the Eucharist, the entire edifice crumbles into nonsense and people worshiping not God, but themselves.
Here is one of my favorite pieces of music, which sounds like a lovely angelic lullabye to me.
All we that in mystery
Holy Cherubim portray
As the life-creating Trinity
With thrice-holy hymn we adore and praise.
Come, let us cast off all earthly care
And forget every vain employ.
For the King of All comes in triumph
By unseen hosts of angels brought
To us that bid Him welcome.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
