What I learned From a Muslim about Eucharistic Adoration
After a period of meditation and reflection
the celebrant goes to the altar, genuflects, and kneels. The following or
another suitable eucharistic hymn is sung
Tantum Ergo Sacramentum EUCHARISTIC BENEDICITON
Ergo Traditional Latin Chant Eucharistic Benediction Blessed Sacrament
O SALUTARIS HOSTIA
O Salutaris Hostia is a moving tribute to our Lord, a wonderful hymn written by Saint Thomas Aquinas (pictured below), the preeminent theologian and Doctor of the Church, in the 13th century. Saint Thomas composed its text for the feast of Corpus Christi, which was established by the Church in 1264 to honor our Lord in the Eucharist (in His Body and Blood). It actually comprises the last two stanzas of a larger hymn that Saint Thomas wrote about our Lord’s institution of the Eucharist at the Last Supper and His Passion. It is often sung during adoration of the Blessed Sacrament as part of what is known as a liturgical service of Eucharistic Exposition and Benediction. The text is given in Latin with an English translation below:
O salutaris Hostia,
Quae caeli pandis ostium:
Bella premunt hostilia,
Da robur, fer auxilium.
Uni trinoque Domino
Sit sempiterna gloria,
Qui vitam sine termino
Nobis donet in patria.
O saving Victim, opening wide,
The gate of heaven to man below!
Our foes press on from every side;
Thine aid supply, thy strength bestow.
To Thy great name by endless praise,
Immortal Godhead, one in Three;
Oh, grant us endless length of days,
In our true native land with Thee. Amen
This hymn has had many musical
settings over the centuries by such composers as Palestrina, Beethoven,
Gounod, and Liszt. The music in this
video is often used in services.
Note the text’s inspiring references
to our Lord’s saving mission in reconciling us to His Father, and thus
opening for us the gates of heaven, through his Passion. We are invited
here to ask for His help in persevering in our often difficult spiritual
Eternal Life with Him in our “true native land,” heaven!
St. Thomas himself once quoted St.
Augustine as saying that in heaven “we will see, we will love, and we
will praise.” This hymn reminds us to keep our eyes on the prize!

Down in adoration
falling, This great Sacrament we hail;
Over ancient forms
of worship Newer rites of grace prevail;
Faith will tell us
Christ is present, When our human senses fail.
To the everlasting Father, And the Son who made us free, And the Spirit, God proceeding
From them Each eternally, Be salvation, honor, blessing, Might and endless majesty. Amen.
Tantum ergo Sacramentum Veneremur cernul, Et antiquum documentum
Novo cedat ritul;Praestet fides supplementum Sensuum defectful.
Genitori Gentioque Laus et jubilatio,
Salus, honor, virtus quoque Sit et benedictio;Procedenti ab utroque
compar sit laudatio. Amen.
You have given them Bread from heaven (P.T. Alleluia)
all sweetness with it (P.T. Alleluia)
Lord Jesus Christ, you gave us the Eucharist as the memorial of your
suffering and death. May our worship of this sacrament of your body and
blood, help us to experience the salvation won for us and the peace of the
kingdom, where you live with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, for
ever and ever.
ALL: Amen. The celebrant will
then bless all present with the Eucharist.
When the priest or deacon has blessed everyone he then replaces the Blessed Sacrament in the tabernacle and genuflects. The following acclamation may be said at this time. This acclamation is called the Divine Praises.
|Blessed be God.|
Blessed be his holy name.
Blessed be Jesus Christ, true God and true man.
Blessed be the name of Jesus.
Blessed be his most Sacred Heart.
Blessed be his most Precious Blood.
Blessed be Jesus in the most holy sacrament of the altar.
Blessed be the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete.
the great Mother of God, Mary most holy.
Blessed be her holy and Immaculate Conception.
Blessed be her glorious Assumption.
Blessed be the name of Mary, virgin and Mother.
Blessed be St. Joseph, her most chaste spouse.
Blessed be God in his angels and in his saints.
As the celebrant is leaving the following or another suitable hymn may be sung.
After a period of meditation and reflection the celebrant goes to the altar, genuflects, and
kneels. The following or another suitable eucharistic hymn is sung.
O Lord I am Not Worthy
