Lost in Translation #57
Despite assertions to the contrary, the Mass formulary and Office for the feast of Corpus Christi were almost certainly composed by St Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) at the behest of Pope Urban IV. (Dr Donald Prudlo gives an outstanding overview of the origins of the feast here.) That includes the Collect for the feast:
Deus, qui nobis sub Sacramento mirábili passiónis tuae memoriam reliquisti: tríbue, quáesumus, ita nos Córporis et Sánguinis tui sacra mysteria venerári, ut redemptiónis tuae fructum in nobis júgiter sentiámus: Qui vivis et regnas.
O God, who in this wonderful Sacrament hast left us a memorial of Thy passion: grant us, we beseech, to venerate the sacred mysteries of Thy body and blood in such a way that we may ever sense within us the fruit of Thy redemption. Who livest and reignest.
Caro cibus, sanguis potus:Manet tamen Christus totusSub utráque specie.
A sumente non concísus,Non confractus, non divísus:Integer accípitur.
Flesh as food, blood as drink,Yet the whole Christ remainsUnder either kind.
By being consumedHe is not cut up, broken, or divided:He is received in His entirety.
Quod non capis, quod non vides,Animósa firmat fides,Praeter rerum órdinem.
What you do not grasp, what you do not see,An ardent Faith confirmsOutside the order of things.
Sit laus plena, sit sonóra,Sit jucunda, sit decóraMentis jubilatio.
Let our praise be full, let it resound,Let our heart’s jubilationBe sweet and charming.
