This is beautiful.May the Heart of Jesus, present in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar in all the tabernacles of the world, be praised, adored and loved at every moment, even until the end of time. Amen.
I love this hymna little history..Ave Verum Corpus natum is a short Eucharistic hymn dating from the14th century and attributed to Pope Innocent VI (d 1362). During the Middle Ages it was sung at the elevation of the Host during the consecration. It was also used frequently during Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. The text below is one of the four variants of the hymn that have come down to us. AVE verum Corpus natumDe Maria Virgine:Vere passum, immolatumIn cruce pro homine:Cuius latus perforatumFluxit aqua et sanguine:Esto nobis praegustatumMortis in examine. O Iesu dulcis!O Iesu pie!O Iesu Fili Mariae. Amen.HAIL, true Body, truly bornOf the Virgin Mary mildTruly offered, wracked and torn,On the Cross for all defiled,From Whose love pierced, sacred sideFlowed Thy true Blood's saving tide:Be a foretaste sweet to meIn my death's great agony. O my loving, Gentle One,Sweetest Jesus,Mary's Son. Amen. Isn't it amazing how this endures, over centuries and centuries?
