I'm trying to select things that let you into my MomE world. As I'm sure you are noticing my musical taste is highly eclectic. This one is so beautiful...it gives me goosebumps. Sometimes...when the kids are sleepy or sick...we slow dance about to such songs.
O mágnum mystérium,
et admirábile sacraméntum,
ut animália vidérent Dóminum nátum,
jacéntem in præsépio:
O beáta Vírgo,
cújus víscera meruérunt portáre
Dóminum Jésum Chrístum. Allelúia.
O great mystery,
and wondrous sacrament,
that animals might see the birth of the Lord
as he lay in the manger.
O Blessed Virgin,
Who wast worthy of bearing
our Lord Jesus Christ, Alleluia.
I know, I know...not a sacrament...BUT it wouldn't hurt us to think about Mary being worthy to bear Christ without getting freaked out that we're becoming Catholic-ish. I would have liked to know her! She was blessed among women.
