Rorate Caeli

Miserere nobis + + + HEBDOMADA SANCTA + + + Miserere nobis

Dear friends,

During Holy Week, we will post only urgent news. The days whose solemnity we have expected since Septuagesima have arrived. Fast and prayers intensify as we approach the annual celebration of the glorious days of our Redemption.

Sanctus Deus! Sanctus fortis! Sanctus immortalis!
Miserere nobis!

Ja nicht auf das Fest,
auf daß nicht ein Aufruhr werde im Volk!

His time was coming!...
