It’s Sunday, so that makes this appropriate!
Here’s what I’m digging about theology this week:
The divine praises (adoration is like the best, y’all):
(This video is pretty long. The Divine Praises start about 3:39. While you’re watching the first part, here’s some non-Catholic thoughts:
- Tantum Ergo Sacramentum (the first part) is worth a listen. At SJU we sing it in Latin, which I am a huge fan of.
- I have always loved the old wisdom and beauty of the catholic church; isn’t it just a little bit cool to think you’re singing the words that have been chanted since at least St. Thomas Aquinas?
- Why does the priest have to wear a scarf to hold the monstrance? I have actually asked priests this and I still do not understand.)
That there’s a feast called the Chair of Peter.
You know your organization has been around for a long time when you start celebrating the furniture.
This Buzzfeed quiz on which apostle you are.
That moment when you are about to take a practice GRE so you quickly look up the patron saint of exams (Joseph of Cuptertino, for all you college kids out there).
The opportunity to worship with my community multiple times each day is (to my surprise) one of my favorite things about SJU!
