The strophe of Sacris solemniis that begins with the words "Panis angelicus" (bread of angels) has often been set to music separately from the rest of the hymn. Most famously, in 1872 César Franck set this strophe for voice (tenor), harp, cello, and organ, and incorporated it into his Messe à trois voix Opus 12.
The phenomenon whereby the strophe of Sacris solemniis that begins with the words "Panis angelicus" is often treated as a separate hymn has occurred also with other hymns that Thomas Aquinas wrote for Corpus Christi: Verbum supernum prodiens (the last two strophes begin with "O salutaris Hostia") and Pange lingua gloriosi (the last two strophes begin with "Tantum ergo", in which case the word ergo ["therefore"] makes evident that this part is the continuation of a longer hymn).....
|Maundy Thursday commemorates Jesus Christ’s institution of the
Eucharist during the Last Supper, which is described in the Christian
bible. The day is also known as Passion Thursday, Paschal Thursday or
Sheer (or Shere) Thursday. It is the day before
Friday and occurs during Holy Week.
What do people do?
Many Catholic and Anglican churches continue traditional Maundy Thursday rites that may include handing out special coins known as “Maundy money” to the aged and poor. Churches may also have the blessing of holy oil and feet washing as part of their Maundy Thursday service. Some churches have a tradition that involves priests washing the feet of 12 people to symbolize Jesus washing the feet of his disciples.
Many Maundy Thursday church services take place in the evening. Maundy Thursday is known as "Green Thursday" (Gründonnerstag) in Germany, where green vegetables and salad, including spinach salad, are served as part of the tradition. Maundy Thursday is known as skjærtorsdag in Norway and is a day off for workers and students. It is known as skärtorsdagen in Sweden and is linked to a folktale about a witches’ day.

THIS DAY IN WWII:
THIS DAY IN 1965:
Friday, April 02, 1965 - Victim of police brutality Rodney King was born Rodney Glen King III in Sacramento, California. On 17 June 2012 in Rialto, California at the age of 47, he died of accidental drowning, and alcohol, cocaine, marijuana, and PCP found in his system were contributing factors. "The effects of the drugs and alcohol, combined with the subject's heart condition, probably precipitated a cardiac arrhythmia and the subject, thus incapacitated, was unable to save himself and drowned".

are beginning to dance. There's a guy on the dance floor living it
large, break dancing, moon walking, back flips, buying drinks for
people-- the works.
Wife turns to her husband and says, "See that guy? 25 years ago he proposed to me, and I turned him down.”
Husband says, "Looks like he's still celebrating!!!"

|One day an employee came in to
work with both of his ears bandaged.
When his boss asked him what happened, he explained, "Yesterday I was ironing a shirt when the phone rang and I accidentally answered the iron instead of the phone!"
"Well," the boss said, "that explains one ear, but what about the other?"
"They called back!"
