Maundy Thursday

“And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them,
and said, Take, eat: this is my body. And he took the cup, and when he had given
thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it. And he said unto them,
This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many.”

- Mark 14: 22-24 (KJV)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Between Passover and Easter, there is much to celebrate this week. 

BONUS #1 - Panis Angelicus - St. Philips Boys' Choir, Norbury, UK - soloists Jaymi Bandtock and Sam Harper, July,1987

BONUS #2 - Panis Angelicus - Andrea Bocelli

BONUS #3 - Panis Angelicus - Chloe Agnew


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panis_Angelicus:
 

Panis angelicus is the penultimate strophe of the hymn Sacris solemniis written by Saint Thomas Aquinas for the Feast of Corpus Christi as part of a complete liturgy of the Feast including prayers for the Mass and the Liturgy of the Hours.

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).....


HOMEWORK:

From http://www.timeanddate.com/holidays/common/maundy-thursday:

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 Good 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.

The band cranks up, and people 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!!!"

      Thanks, F.A.!

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 04/01/15:
 

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!"

Panis Angelicus

Text written by Saint Thomas Aquinas (1225 – 07 Mar 1274)

Composed by César Franck (10 Dec 1822 – 8 Nov 1890), 1872
 

Panis Angelicus
 

 Panis angelicus
fit panis hominum;
Dat panis coelicus
figuris terminum:
O res mirabilis!
Manducat Dominum
Pauper, servus et humilis.

Te trina Deitas
unaque poscimus:
Sic nos tu visita,
sicut te colimus;
Per tuas semitas
duc nos quo tendimus,
Ad lucem quam inhabitas.
Amen.

An English Translation
 

 The angelic bread
becomes the bread of men;
The heavenly bread
ends all prefigurations:
What wonder!
The Lord is eaten
by a poor and humble servant.

Triune God,
We beg of you:
visit us,
just as we worship you.
By your ways,
lead us where we are heading,
to the light in which you dwell.
Amen.
