This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it! ~ Psalm 118:24

Ave Verum

Ave verum corpus, natum
ex Maria Virgine,
vere passum, immolatum
in cruce pro homine,
cuius latus perforatum
fluxit aqua et sanguine:
esto nobis praegustatum
in mortis examine.
O Iesu dulcis, O Iesu pie, O Iesu, fili Mariae.
Miserere mei. Amen.

Hail, true Body, born
of the Virgin Mary,
who having truly suffered, was sacrificed
on the cross for mankind,
whose pierced side
flowed with water and blood:
May it be for us a foretaste [of the Heavenly banquet]
in the trial of death.
O sweet Jesus, O pious Jesus, O Jesus, son of Mary,
have mercy on me. Amen.

Sung by Ecclesium in Belfast Cathedral, conducted by Philip Stopford.

Feast of Epiphany
Sunday, January 5, 2014, 7:00 AM

(Theophany Feast Day Apolytikion sung in English by Presvytera Pat Tsagalakis, Holy Apostles Greek Orthodox Church in Shoreline, WA.)

Holy Epiphany in Russia

“For as many as have been baptised into Christ have put on Christ.” –-  Galatians 3:27

Today in Eastern Orthodox churches, the emphasis at this feast is on the shining forth and revelation of Jesus Christ as the Messiah and second person of the Holy Trinity at the time of his baptism. Usually called the Feast of the Theophany, it is one of the great feasts of the liturgical year. “Theophany” comes from the Greek for “God shining forth.” (Citation)

“Behold, I make all things new.” Revelation 21:5

O Magnum Mysterium by Morten Lauridsen

O magnum mysterium
et admirabile sacramentum,
ut animalia viderent Dominum natum
jacentem in praesepio.

O beata Virgo, cujus viscera meruerunt
portare Dominum Jesum Christum.

Ave Maria, gratia plena: Dominus tecum.

O beata Virgo, cujus viscera meruerunt
portare Dominum Jesum Christum.

Alleluia!

—-

O great mystery
and wonderful sacrament,
that animals should see the new-born Lord
lying in a manger!

O blessed is the Virgin, whose womb
was worthy to bear Christ the Lord.

Hail Mary, full of grace: the Lord is with you.

Blessed is the Virgin whose womb
was worthy to bear Christ the Lord.

Alleluia!

A blessed Christmas from your friends at Touchstone!
