26 Apr How’s your Latin? – Misericordias Domini – 4/26/2020
This is Misericordias Domini by the old method of naming the Sundays after Easter – call it Easter Three now, that’s easier. Today we’ll talk about the old Latin name for this day, and the Psalm from which that name derives.
Our Gospel this day is Luke 24:13-35, recounting one of the other amazing events of that Easter Sunday so long ago.
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.*
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
