Ave Verum Corpus


Ave verum corpus natum
de Maria Virgine,
vere passum, immolatum
in cruce pro homine,
cuius latus perforatum
unda fluxit et sanguine,
esto nobis praegustatum
in mortis examine.

Every time I see the pieta I can't help but think of the Ave Verum Corpus. This prayer is probably one of my favorite. It has so much to it. Ya know? "Hail the TRUE body! Born of the Virgin Mary, who truly suffered- was immolated, on the cross for man. (He takes our sins and puts them on himself to bear. That is important! He doesn't just "poof!" take our sins away. No, He takes them and puts them on Himself. He is "immolated". Crushed and sacrificed, and out of that crushing and grinding comes life! How deep is that!? (love Latin- hate English translations)) Who's pierced side flowed blood and water, let it be a foretaste for us [in heaven], in the trial of death". How beautiful!

Someday I am going to do a concert of only settings of the Ave Verum Corpus: Byrd, Mozart, Liszt, Daley, Elgar, etc.
Someday I am going to repaint the upstairs bathroom too...
It's good to dream.

Sadly, the Pieta seen above (which is in St. Peter's Basilica) is blocked by a sheet of glass- someone tried to vandalize it several decades ago, so you can't get very close to it, and there is a slight glare from the glass. Still, it is VERY impressive. Like the rest of the basilica, you are in awe when seeing it.
