|Panis angelicus is the penultimate
strophe of the hymn

Feast of Corpus Christi as part of a complete liturgy of the Feast
including prayers for the
Mass and the
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 ą 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 skjęrtorsdag 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.

Now I won’t get into any
verbal squabbles over those who may disagree with the aforementioned.
This year there is an overlapping of Easter and Passover. Easter should
always fall on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the
vernal equinox. Passover comes in early spring the time when winter
rains end and the weather turns mild. We sure need the news times and
In these exciting days of
fast-moving technological advances more and more supposedly wise people,
like to have their short moments of censure by denying any Deity
especially acclaimed by average people. It is their right of course to
believe whatever they want but it is deleterious to traditional American
lifestyles. Remember when “strutting your stuff” on the avenues was fun
with Easter Parades in almost every city and town? And, public prayers?
It was a sweltering
100-degree day in the Haitian village. Oldham was preparing a video
promo for hungry children. He would then sing one of his most popular
recordings, something like his famous, “The King is Coming.” The audio
engineer and cameraman were rolling. As the introduction started, “Hello
Everyone, this is Doug Oldham,” moans bellowed, halting the production.
More groans, louder and louder. No stopping. Was someone dying?

This is AMAZING Check out the very last one....!!!!
WOWZERONI-YOWZERONI! Thank you, Jimmy! I have no idea what kept most of these people from suffering horrific deaths....
From Jimmy Smith ('62 / '63) of VA - 04/16/14 - "Your first Easter email":
Your first Easter email
A man is driving along a highway and sees a rabbit
jump out across the middle of the road.
He swerves to avoid hitting it, but unfortunately the
rabbit jumps right in front of the car.
The driver, a sensitive man as well as an animal lover,
pulls over and gets out to see
what has become of the rabbit.
Much to his dismay, the rabbit is
the Easter Bunny , and he is DEAD.
The driver feels so awful that he begins to cry.
A beautiful blonde woman driving down the highway
sees a man crying on the side of the road
and pulls over.
She steps out of the car and asks the man what's wrong.
"I feel terrible," ! he explains,
"I accidentally hit the Easter Bunny with my car
and KILLED HIM."
The blonde says, "Don't worry."
She runs to her car and pulls out a spray can.
She walks over to the limp, dead Easter Bunny,
bends down, and sprays the contents onto him.
The Easter Bunny jumps up, waves its paw at the
two of them and hops off down the road.
Ten feet away he stops, turns around and waves
again, he hops down the road another 10 feet,
turns and waves, hops another ten feet,
turns and waves, and repeats this again and again
and again and again, until he hops out of sight.
The man is astonished.
"What is in that can?
What did you spray on the Easter Bunny ?"
The woman turns the can around
so that the man can read the label.
(Are you ready for this?)
(You know you're gonna be sorry)
(OK, here it is)
Restores life to dead hair,
and adds permanent wave."

of power, the world will know peace.
