On The Blood of Christ

| | Comments (2)

What a joy and delight to open the Diocesan paper today and see that the Bishop has dedicated his entire column to the Blood of Christ. You can find a copy here, or at the Diocesan site.

I was happy to see this!

People at St. Barnabas remember the litany.
(It's still on the back cover of the station booklets and most station leaders do it as part of Friday night.)

But, sign of the times (or perhaps a typo from Father Jim Franck back in the day, sigh of the times), the archaic language. I don't speak in verbs that end in th or address anyone as Thou.

Magnificent! I rejoice with you, dear brother! There is an entry on the Precious Blood over at Vultus Christi too. What better way to begin the Great and Holy Week.

As for the so-called "archaic" language. I prefer it. So too do the Quakers. There is a sacred intimacy in the "Thou" form that the "You" form cannot express. Being something of a translator myself, I have often suffered from the impoverishment of current English usage which has nothing to say the "Tu" of Latin and the languages derived from it.
