Rorate Caeli

Praise to the Lord, the Almighty


Lobe den Herren, was in mir ist, lobe den Namen!
Alles, was Odem hat, lobe mit Abrahams Samen!
Er ist dein Licht,
Seele, vergiß es ja nicht;
Lobende, schließe mit Amen!
Praise to the Lord, what is within me, praise His name!
All that has breath, praise with Abraham's kin!
He is Your light,
soul, forget it not;
praising, end with Amen!

[A blessed new year to our readers.]

    And to you New Catholic, your team and your 16 priests.

    May your apostolate continue building the Catholic Church as vigorously in 2012.

    Lovely. Who are the performers on this recording, I wonder?

  4. Beautiful!

    But one thing:

    I can't understand why Angels are always depicted as so feminine. Or is that supposed to represent androgyny?
