Even after a long life of sin, if the Christian receives the Sacrament of the dying with the appropriate dispositions, he will go straight to heaven without having to go to purgatory. - Fr. M. Philipon; This sacrament prepares man for glory immediately, since it is given to those who are departing from this life. - St. Thomas Aquinas; It washes away the sins that remain to be atoned, and the vestiges of sin; it comforts and strengthens the soul of the sick person, arousing in him a great trust and confidence in the divine mercy. Thus strengthened, he bears the hardships and struggles of his illness more easily and resists the temptation of the devil and the heel of the deceiver more readily; and if it be advantageous to the welfare of his soul, he sometimes regains his bodily health. - Council of Trent

YES.  THIS.  One of the most badass things ever heard by human ears.

Yes.  :)

The rest of the Ensemble Organum's Chant of the Templars is quite good too.

Were not the Knights Templar suppressed for heresy in the High Middle Ages? I think it odd that a Catholic artist should record their offices - one would not see a CD of Cathar or Jansenist songs. Forgive me, but I thought it an  interesting point. For that matter, did all the crusading orders have offices in their own right?

It was my understanding that while the Cathars were real heretics, heresy was merely used as an excuse to kill off the Templars for monetary reasons on the part of the French crown.

For some reason, when I bought this hymn on iTunes it was classified as "EXPLICIT".  ???

This one is a good hymn for Lent:


Love this one.

Also love "How Can I Keep From Singing."  It's so very American, in the best sense of the word:

And as said earlier by Lyubov, the heresy charges were an excuse.

There is not problematic content in Crucem Sanctam Subiit for example. Also, other composers have used it as an Antiphon.

Old Roman Chant: "Kyrie Eleison"

Schaff Recht mir Gott und führe meine Sache gegen ein unheiliges Volk . . .   .                          
Lex Orandi, lex credendi, lex vivendi.
"Die Welt sucht nach Ehre, Ansehen, Reichtum, Vergnügen; die Heiligen aber suchen Demütigung, Verachtung, Armut, Abtötung und Buße." --Ausschnitt von der Geschichte des Lebens St. Bennos.

Deep night hath come down on this rough-spoken world.
And the banners of darkness are boldly unfurled;
And the tempest-tossed Church -- all her eyes are on thee.
They look to thy shining, sweet Star of the Sea.


I think of St. John Bosco's vision of the Barque of Peter in the storms, straining against the waves to reach Our Lady and the Sanctissimum. Most fitting, today, especially, today of all days.
