Septuagesima Season

We do not now deserve
To sing the Alleluia forever;
Guilt forces us
To dismiss you, O Alleluia.
For the time approaches in which
We must weep for our sins.
[Ancient Hymn]


David said...

Notwithstanding our adoption as sons and daughters in Christ through baptism, we remain "poor banished children of Eve", "mourning and weeping in this valley of tears" (Ave Regina). Why else would we need the sacrament of penance? :-)

I hope that the tradition of Septuagesima will soon recover its rightful place in the post-Vatican II liturgy as part of the Benedictine reform.

St. Jude Pray For Me said...

Diligam te, Dómine, fortitúdo mea : Dóminus firmaméntum meum, et refúgium meum, et liberátor meus.
