Responsorial Psalm 145(146):7-10 for the 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C - My Soul, Give Praise To The Lord

MP3 Music Playlist: 


Responsorial Psalm 145(146):7-10 for the 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C

My soul, give praise to the Lord.

It is the Lord who keeps faith for ever,
who is just to those who are oppressed.
It is He who gives bread to the hungry,
the Lord, who sets prisoners free.

My soul, give praise to the Lord.

It is the Lord who gives sight to the blind,
who raises up those who are bowed down.
It is the Lord who loves the just,
the Lord, who protects the stranger.

My soul, give praise to the Lord.

The Lord upholds the widow and orphan
but thwarts the path of the wicked.
The Lord will reign for ever,
Zion’s God, from age to age.

My soul, give praise to the Lord.

Sicut per Ignem : catholic symphonic metal in Latin

Sicut per Ignem is a project of catholic symphonic metal with lyrics in Latin.
I call it a project because it is not a band, though I occasionally hire vocalists for some parts...

Here is the website of the project: https://sicutperignem.wordpress.com/

Here are two songs I released two years ago. Although the production is not as polished as I hoped, it is already a good rendition of what I had in mind. You can find the lyrics at the end of this post.

 
 
Esto mi dux

Ubi civitas Sodoma fit,
Ubi palam adulter jam it,
Ubi caedes communis jam est,
Ub' infantes abortus jam est,

Esto mi dux,
Esto mi lux,
Deus, illumina me.

Esto mi rex,
Esto mi lex,
Veritas, educa me.

Quando pereunt maximae res,
Quando permanes unica spes,
Quando m'incidet ultima sors,
Quando veniet tacita mors,

Esto mi vox,
Resona mox,
Domine, voca me.

Esto mi fax,
Esto mi pax,
Spiritus, recrea me.

Ad stellam

Avis meis
Nuntiata
A prophetis
Nova stella.

Firmamentum
Observavi
Ad videndum
Astrum Dei.

Per tot montes,
Per tot lacus
Viatores
Facti sumus.

Passi solem,
Passi frigus
Ut infantem
Coleremus.

Dic, Herodes,
Scribae, ferte,
Sacerdotes,
Respondete :

Ubi rex
Iudaeorum,
Pontifex
In aeternum ?

Ephrata Bethleem, o tu
Iudae minima non es.

Nam exibit e te
Dominator Israel.

Ephrata Bethleem, o tu
Iudae minima non es.

Ad praesaepem
Procidamus,
Salvatorem
Adoremus.

Murrham, aurum
Ei demus,
Et incensum.
Salve, Salus !

Hello friends!!!

The lyrics are exact quotes of the Gospel, in Hebrew and English, the same words in the 2 languages. I sacrificed a bit the musicality to keep the exact words of Jesus in their original order

Verse 1
F: .כְּשֵׁם שֶׁהָאָב אוֹהֵב אוֹתִי כֵּן גַּם אנִי אוֹהֵב אֶתְכֶם
M: As the Father- has loved me-, I have also -loved you;
Prechorus 1
F: עִמְדוּ בְּאַהֲבָתִי
M: Remain in my love.
Chorus
F: .אֵין אַהֲבָה גְּדוֹלָה -מֵאַהֲבָתוֹ שֶׁל הנּוֹתֵן-- אֶת נַפְשׁוֹ- בְּעַד יְדִידָיו
M: Greater love- has no one- than this-: that someone- lay down his life- for his friends.
Together: אֶהֱבוּ זֶה אֶת זֶה כְּמוֹ שֶׁאֲנִי אָהַבְתִּי אֶתְכֶם
Love one another - as I have loved you.
Verse 2
F: If you remain in My Word-, you will be truly my disciples- and you will know - the truth-
M: ". אִם תַּעַמְדוּ בּדְבָרִי, תַּלְמִידַי אַתֶּם בֶּאֱמֶת; 32 וְתֵדְעוּ אֶת הָאֱמֶת
Pre-chorus 2
F: and the truth will set you free
M: וְהָאֱמֶת תּשַׁחְרֵר אֶתְכֶם
Chorus 2
M: .אֵין אַהֲבָה גְּדוֹלָה -מֵאַהֲבָתוֹ שֶׁל הנּוֹתֵן-- אֶת נַפְשׁוֹ- בְּעַד יְדִידָיו
F: Greater love- has no one- than this-: that someone- lay down his life- for his friends.
Together: אֶהֱבוּ זֶה אֶת זֶה כְּמוֹ שֶׁאֲנִי אָהַבְתִּי אֶתְכֶם
Love one another as I have loved you.
Bridge:
M: I am with you always
F: אִתְּכֶם אֲנִי כָּל הַיָּמִים
Togheter: עַד קץ הָעוֹלָם
till the world's end
Chorus 3
Together: .אֵין אַהֲבָה גְּדוֹלָה -מֵאַהֲבָתוֹ שֶׁל הנּוֹתֵן-- אֶת נַפְשׁוֹ- בְּעַד יְדִידָיו
Greater love- has no one- than this-: that someone- lay down his life- for his friends.
אֶהֱבוּ זֶה אֶת זֶה כְּמוֹ שֶׁאֲנִי אָהַבְתִּי אֶתְכֶם
Love one another as I have loved you.
 

Responsorial Psalm 112(113):1-2,4-8 for the 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C - Praise The Lord, Who Raises The Poor

MP3 Music Playlist: 


Responsorial Psalm 112(113):1-2,4-8 for the 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C

Praise the Lord, who raises the poor.

Praise, O servants of the Lord,
praise the name of the Lord!
May the name of the Lord be blessed
both now and for evermore!

Praise the Lord, who raises the poor.

High above all nations is the Lord,
above the heavens His glory.
Who is like the Lord, our God,
who has risen on high to His throne
yet stoops from the heights to look down,
to look down upon heaven and earth?

Praise the Lord, who raises the poor.

From the dust He lifts up the lowly,
from the dungheap He raises the poor
to set Him in the company of princes,
yes, with the princes of His people.

Praise the Lord, who raises the poor.

The Journey Home (EWTN): Why I Became Catholic – Nick Alexander

Nick Alexander is one of the founders and a former webmaster of TopCatholicSongs.com (2007 through 2014). – Richard Schletty (TCS webmaster)


 

9/23/2022 update. Watch my EWTN interview on YouTube.

At Long Last

At long last, I will make a reappearance on national TV on September 19, 2022.  That is when the long running The Journey Home series will have me as their guest.  This is a show where converts to the Catholic faith share their stories.  I follow a long tradition of intellectual theological giants and philanthropists, and, now that they’ve run out of such, they decided to ask me on to share my story.

Picture: that’s me on The Journey Home

These last nearly thirty years have had their ups and downs, whereas I had wanted a venue to share my story.  At last it has come.  Marcus Grodi, the original host, had just passed the torch to his son, JonMarc Grodi for interviewing duties.

First, They Flew Me In

They flew me in back in April.  Their television studio is in the middle of a rural area in Ohio, where the Grodi family farms on the side.  They had an incredible library indoors, filled with all sorts of theological books, both pro and anti-Catholic.  I came with another former Episcopalian (actually a Charismatic Episcopalian, whereas I grew up Episcopalian in a parish with charismatic leanings),  Fr. Randy Sly.  He went first, which gave me time to gather my thoughts and try to salvage my poor sleep the night before.

The unique aspects of my testimony touch upon my upbringing, my positive experiences in the Christian groups I had participated in, and the tensions I felt with...

a written verse

Hello, I haven't been here for quite sometime and I went through a stage where my faith was slipping. Everything was hollow and empty and bleak the more I became enstranged from it. I'm doing my best to strengthen it again. So here is a little verse I wrote about where I'm at now.

Responsorial Psalm 50(51):3-4,12-13,17,19 for the 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C - I Will Leave This Place And Go To My Father

MP3 Music Playlist: 


Responsorial Psalm 50(51):3-4,12-13,17,19 for the 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C

I will leave this place and go to my father.

Have mercy on me, God, in Your kindness.
In Your compassion blot out my offence.
O wash me more and more from my guilt
and cleanse me from my sin.

I will leave this place and go to my father.

A pure heart create for me, O God,
put a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from Your presence,
nor deprive me of Your holy spirit.

I will leave this place and go to my father.

O Lord, open my lips
and my mouth shall declare Your praise.
My sacrifice is a contrite spirit.
A humbled, contrite heart You will not spurn.

I will leave this place and go to my father.

Responsorial Psalm 89(90):3-6,12-14,17 for the 23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C - O Lord, You Have Been Our Refuge From One Generation To The Next

MP3 Music Playlist: 


Responsorial Psalm 89(90):3-6,12-14,17 for the 23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C

O Lord, You have been our refuge from one generation to the next.

You turn men back to dust
and say: ‘Go back, sons of men.’
To Your eyes a thousand years
are like yesterday, come and gone,
no more than a watch in the night.

O Lord, You have been our refuge from one generation to the next.

You sweep men away like a dream,
like the grass which springs up in the morning.
In the morning it springs up and flowers:
by evening it withers and fades.

O Lord, You have been our refuge from one generation to the next.

Make us know the shortness of our life
that we may gain wisdom of heart.
Lord, relent! Is Your anger for ever?
Show pity to Your servants.

O Lord, You have been our refuge from one generation to the next.

In the morning, fill us with Your love;
we shall exult and rejoice all our days.
Let the favour of the Lord be upon us:
give success to the work of our hands.

O Lord, You have been our refuge from one generation to the next.
