On Easter Sunday, as a Meditation before Mass, the Classic Choir will sing the Cantique de Jean Racine. It is one of the most recognized French Hymns of Praise. The English text sung by the choir is Psalm 84: O Lord of Host, How lovely is Thy dwelling place. My soul longs for thy courts, My heart and flesh cry out for Thee.
Blest are they whose hope is forever in Thee. Who praise Thy name. Who sing their songs within Thy Holy House. Incline Thine ear, Look down O Lord. My spirit longs for Thee. My sun and shield is The lord of Hosts. O Lord hear my prayer!
The text is very apropos of this time when we are mourning with the French people, for a a Monument to our Catholic Church. ... See MoreSee Less
A PRAYER FOR NOTRE DAME IN PARIS Lord, at times such as this, we plead for your mercy.As the grandest of our churches crumbles about us, in this our holiest of weeks, we know too well how small we truly are on this fragile planet we call home. Today, so many people are devastated. They roam the streets in shock at what they see, and they keep vigil amid the ruins. Yet you have promised never to forget us. Do not forget us now. Comfort the Church of Paris, Lord, in this disaster. Pierce, too, our hearts with compassion, we who watch from afar. Stay with us in our sorrow, and help us to trust in your Son’s resurrection. And once the images of destruction have stopped filling the news, let us not forget that in Christ we are all the children of Our Lady. For though the mountains leave their place and the hills be tossed to the ground, your love shall never leave us, and your promise of peace will never be shaken. Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth. Blessed be the name of the Lord, now and forever. Amen. ... See MoreSee Less
