Ascension

Jesu, nostra redemptio
Amor et desiderium,
Deus Creator omnium
Homo in sine temporum.

Here is the gist of it:

"O Jesus, Author of man’s salvation, the delight of our hearts, the Creator of the world redeemed, and chaste light of those that love Thee.” —Caswall.

Thank you, el autor, and please visit often!

Well, that is just exquisite. You're right -- there are few words more beautiful. Thank you. I will bring it to tonight's Mass and pray it right after a silent, small, nearly inadequate but deeply happy Anima Christi.

Oh, but none of our prayers are adequate, dear Carol. His love will supply all that is needed.
