Today is the feast of Corpus Christi.

Lauda Sion Salvatorem,
Lauda ducem et pastorem,
In hymnis et canticis.
Quantum potes, tantum aude:
Quia major omni laude,
Nec laudare sufficis...

The sequence for today is so beautiful. Now, if only we had chanted it.

Fr.'s homily today was quite inspiring. He talked about what the Eucharist is, how important it is to the Church, and what the role of a priest is in celebrating the Eucharist (quoting Ecclesia de Eucharistiae). I've heard all of this before, but only in classrooms. It makes a big difference to hear this said when you are sitting in the church, looking at the altar, and knowing that everything he is talking about is going to happen in just a few minutes.
