The Post Communion of today’s Mass, on this 3rd Sunday after Epiphany, is spectacular:
Quos tantis, Domine, largiris uti mysteriis: quaesumus; ut effectibus nos eorum veraciter aptare digneris.
Let’s see if you, perhaps collectively, can do something along the lines of my WDTPRS offerings.
So… get to work.
What is the origin of this prayer, if any? Is it in an ancient source?
Notice anything about the style? Rhythm? Tropes?
Any interesting vocabulary? Constructions? What might they tell you about a deeper text in the text?
What practical application might we find in it?
There are your canvas, brushes, colors, pallets…
So… go ahead, paint.
