But…

But the Pope… But the Bishops…. But liturgical abuse…. But the latest scandal….. But he… But she… But they….. But I……. But the__________. (enter complaint du jour here)

 

1 Corinthians, chapter 13

If I speak in human and angelic tongues* but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal.aAnd if I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith so as to move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing.bIf I give away everything I own, and if I hand my body over so that I may boast but do not have love, I gain nothing.c

* Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, [love] is not pompous, it is not inflated,dit is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury,eit does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth.It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.f

* Love never fails. If there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing; if tongues, they will cease; if knowledge, it will be brought to nothing.For we know partially and we prophesy partially,10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.11 When I was a child, I used to talk as a child, think as a child, reason as a child; when I became a man, I put aside childish things. 12 At present we see indistinctly, as in a mirror, but then face to face. At present I know partially; then I shall know fully, as I am fully known.13* So faith, hope, love remain, these three;h but the greatest of these is love.

O Key of David


20161124_1antiphons

O Key of David,
opening the gates of God’s eternal Kingdom:
come and free the prisoners of darkness!

O Clavis David, et sceptrum domus Israel: qui aperis et nemo claudit; claudis et nemo aperit: veni et educ vinctum de domo carceris, sedentem in tenebris et umbra mortis.
