Guess I’ll add you to my prayer list.
Just said a prayer for your quick recovery.
Father, I hope you get to feeling better. A lot of bugs going around on this side of the pond too.
Well, I am not confident with my translations of this Sunday (they seemed much more difficult than usual), but here are my attempts:
8th Sunday Per Annum
Grant to us, we beseech You, O Lord, that both the course of the world may be guided by Your peaceful authority, and that Your Church may rejoice in tranquil devotion.
Prayer Over the Gifts
O God, You Who give these oblations for the sake of offering them to Your Name, and join them to the devotion of our servitude, we beseech Your merciful love, that, as often as You grant whence merit may be, you may grant to assist us to our reward.
Having been filled with this saving Gift, we beg of Your mercy, O Lord, that, by this same Sacrament through Which you nourish us temporarily, You may make us participants of life everlasting.
Prayers for you!
Did you know that Stravinsky’s Oedipus Rex opera/oratorio has a libretto in Latin, translated from Cocteau’s French by Pere Jean Danielou of all people? He was–it is said–a poor Latinist and made elementary errors, including using ‘Vale’ for hello instead of ‘Salve’ or ‘Ave.’ That libretto would be an interesting curiosity for a priest/Latinist to check out–were he WELL.
I first noticed the word ‘valetudinarian’ in Pride and Prejudice (yes, the BOOK!) years ago. That’s how Austen refers to Elizabeth’s father, who lazes around the house all day doing nothing.
