Posted on 04/03/2015 10:09:05 AM PDT by Salvation
Featured Term selected at random:
A heretical doctrine or theory of the Eucharist presence, taught by some of the Protestant Reformers. It claims that the words of consecration do not change bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ. Rather the substance of bread and wine remains, along with some kind of indefinable presence of Christ. Originally taught by Osiander (1498-1552), a disciple of Luther, it was one of the many attempts of the Reformers to retain some kind of "real presence" in the Eucharist while denying transubstantiation. (Etym. Latin in-, in + panis, bread.)

On the side of the Truth:
Panis Angelicus-Bread of the Angels
By St. Thomas Aquinas
Bread of the Angels
Is made bread for mankind;
Gifted bread of Heaven
Of all imaginings the end;
Oh, thing miraculous!
This body of God will nourish
the poor, the servile, and the humble.
Thee Triune God,
Do us Thou visit,
Just as Thee we worship.
By Thy ways,
lead us where we are heading,
to the light Thou dwellest in.
Panis Angelicus is a BEAUTIFUL song when sung properly!!
It is, isn’t it? When i was younger, I sang in my parish choir, and we would begin at different times, in rounds, I guess it’s called.., until we got to, “Pauper, Pauper” and it was beautiful. I used to love the Latin hymns...
My favorite is “Ave Verum Corpus”- Andrea Baccelli’s “Sacred Arias” is nice...
