.:{Fontem sapientiae, Dominum, venite, adoremus }:.




On the eve of the feast of St. Thomas Aquinas, and my entry into the novitiate of the Third Order of St Dominic

Domine, ante te omne desiderium meum et gemitus meus a te non est absconditus!

Exspetans exspectavi Dominum,
et intendit mihi.
Et exaudivit clamorem meum,
et eduxit me de lacu miseriae et de luto faecis;
et statuit super petram pedes meos,
et firmavit gressus meos.
Et immisit in os meum canticum novum,
carmen Deo nostro.


With expectation I have waited for the Lord,
and he was attentive to me.
And he heard my prayers,
and brought me out of the pit of misery and the mire of dregs.
And he set my feet upon a rock,
and directed my steps. And he put a new canticle into my mouth,
a song to our God.

Deus, qui beatum Thomam sanctitatis zelo ac sacrae doctrinae studio conspicuum effecisti, da nobis, quaesumus, et quae docuit intellectu conspicere, et quae gessit imitatione complere. Per Christum Dominum nostrum.



Thoma, perenne Ecclesiae
lumen decusque praenitens,
in lucra verte gratiae
quae pangimus praeconia.

Tu corde mundo ac simplici,
tu luce mentis unica
Deum beatus ceteris
vidisti abunde clarius.

Superna tu mysteria
scrutatus alto acumine,
quam magna largus saeculis
das veritatis pabula!

Quae recta mens introspicit,
quae nuntiavit Spiritus,
scriptis refundis lucidis,
Christi probatus laudibus.

Silens, modestus, innocens,
Dei fruens consortio,
fulgore sol ut vividus
inter magistros emicas.

Sit Trinitati gloria,
quam, te favente, fidimus
et nos videre in saecula
semper novantes cantica.
