Corpus Christi

This post was intended for the feast of Corpus Christi, but Divine Providence had other designs!

Our Lord gave us wonderful weather for His feast, even though it had not been forecast to be so, so we took full advantage of it to take Him in procession to view the Monastery.

 In 2014 some of the brethren visited the Abbey of Thoronet, in France.  It is an old Cistercian Abbey, founded in 1176.  The Abbey was closed during the French Revolution and is now a museum.  The chapel has the most amazing acoustic — an echo of 9 seconds!

This is the Alleluia from the Mass of Corpus Christi.

This is the Victimae Paschali Laudes, the sequence sung during Easter.

Beautiful singing, thank you.

Simply beautiful, both the pictures of the liturgy and the singing.

900 years ago men built a church knowing how to make one man's voice fill the sanctuary with his voice alone. Much is good and beautiful in every age. Thank you for reminding us all that man is made in the image of God now and forever.

Echoes in time...echoes from the past...and the endless sea rolls on while Mary is still its Star.
