Verbum Supernum

Posted on July 30, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Verbum Supernum was written by St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274)
in honor of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament
at the specific request of Pope Urban IV (1261-1264)
when the Pope established the Feast of Corpus Christi
in 1264.

It is used as a hymn at Lauds on Corpus Christi.
The last two stanzas are used for the hymn O Salutaris Hostia (O Saving Victim).

During adoration this evening, thanking Jesus for remaining with us and sorrowful over
the acts of desecration… recalling the first two lines…

the Word of God proceeding forth,
Yet leaving not the Father’s side.

Jesus, I love you in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I pray everyone will love you.

***
The word of God, proceeding forth
yet leaving not his Father’s side,
and going to his work on earth
had reached at length life’s eventide.

By false disciple to be given
to foemen, for his blood athirst,
himself, the living Bread from heaven,
he gave to his disciples first.

In twofold form of sacrament
he gave his Flesh, he gave his Blood,
that man, of twofold substance blent,

might wholly feed on mystic food.

In birth man’s fellow-man was he,
his meat while sitting at the board;
he died, his ransomer to be,
he reigns to be his great reward.

O saving Victim! opening wide
the gate of heaven to man below,
our foes press hard on every side,
thine aid supply, thy strength bestow.

All praise and thanks to thee ascend
for evermore, blest One in Three;
O grant us life that shall not end
in our true native land with thee.
***

It is by the Holy Spirit that my Eucharistic presence reaches the souls who adore it to unite them to me, and carries them even before the Face of my Father.

There where I am present in the Sacrament of my Love, the Spirit of the Father and the Son is also present. It is by the Holy Spirit that my Eucharistic presence reaches the souls who adore it to unite them to me, and carries them even before the Face of my Father.
