This is the crucifix

| | Comments (1)

This is the crucifix at the Abbey of San Felice, Giano del Umbria, Italy, where the CPPS community was founded in 1815. It is a modern crucifix in the 12th century Abbey. The Abbey was remodeled and returned to its original simplicy sometime in the '50s. Click on the picture for an MP3 file of the Ecce Lignum. It was most likely sung there many times, possibly even by Gaspar himself. It is what will be heard here at St. Edward this year. The melody is much more beautiful than the English "This is the Wood of the Cross" and is very appropriate for our multi lingual congregation.

Blessed Triduum to all
