Surréxit Dóminus de sepúlcro, allelúja, qui pro nobis pepéndit in ligno, allelúja.
Happy Easter! Not quite the tomb with its stone cover rolled away but Piero della Francesca's is my first 'mental image' of Our Lord's Resurrection. At Prime, which is ordinarily anticipating the following day's saints, there's today prefaced to the notice of tomorrow's martyrs this joyful declaration (as 'Rubricarius' at Saint Lawrence Press Blog supra reminded me: I've not gotten to Prime yet and that's not something I would recall from past years).
Hac die, quam fecit Dominus, Solemnitas solemnitatum, et Pascha nostrum: Resurrectio Salvatoris nostri Jesu Christi secundum carnem.
Ante Completorium. Went out for a walk, half-searching for coffee, settling for black tea instead. At this point in my adventure here in Portland I am occasionally beginning to dread looking at the bank account balance. There is a total amount above which I decided not to go beyond; we shall see.
It is also the feast of Saint Isidore (7th century), of Saint Francisco (20th century), and of Saint Benedict (16th century).
V. Et álibi aliórum plurimórum sanctórum Mártyrum et Confessórum, atque sanctárum Vírginum. R. Deo grátias.
