Thou art Fair


Tota pulchra es, Maria et macula originalis non est in te. Vestimentum tuum candidum quasi nix, et facies tua sicut sol. Tota pulchra es, Maria, et macula originalis non est in te. Tu gloria Jerusalem, tu laetitia Israel, tu honorificentia populi nostri. Tota pulchra es, Maria.



You are all beautiful, Mary, and the original stain is not in you. Your clothing is white as snow, and your face is like the sun. You are all beautiful, Mary, and the original stain [of sin] is not in you. You are the glory of Jerusalem, you are the joy of Israel, you give honour to our people. You are all beautiful, Mary.

How'd the Assumption Mass go? You are probably wiped out.

Assumption Mass was gorgeous! The schola directed by Dr. Patricia Warren did an outstanding job. And the instrumental music was just achingly beautiful. It was great to see families there with young children and women in mantillas! Loved it.

How was your celebration?

And yeah, I'm wiped out. Crawled into bed last night after the regular TLM.

Just saw this now..sorry! Assumption Mass was solid. I went to the Vigil so there were not as many bells and smells as there no doubt were on the day itself. Also, there was no schola or organ or other musical accompaniment at the Vigil.

I should have held out for the Saturday a.m. when my buddy's chant schola was in full effect! Yes, I already heard about my absence! lol
