Could you record for your priestly audience the correct pronunciation for the Holy Water blessing in Latin?
Sure! I can do that. I will also include this in the What Does The Prayer Really Sound Like series, or PRAYERCAzTs.
I speak briefly about different kinds of blessed waters we use in the Latin Church. Then I read the Latin for the Blessing of Holy Water from the traditional Roman Ritual… slowly, pedantically. After all, the priest wanted help with pronunciation.
I hope this helps.
I can tease out just the Latin part as a separate file and make it available BISHOPS, PRIESTS or SEMINARIANS. Drop me a note at HERE. In the subject line put: “Recording of Latin for Holy Water“. Tell me who you and where you are, too!
BTW… at the very end, you hear a little bit of a charming “Asperges” on a disc with “Mass for the 500th anniversary of the death of St. Joan of Arc” written by Paul Paray and directed by my friend Fr. Eduard Perrone, pastor of Assumption Grotto in Detroit.
