|The Nave from the Sanctuary, Epistle side|
Our Lady and the English Martyrs, Cambridge
The other day in the parish, I was distributing the Precious Blood at Mass. Last week, I noticed the inscription of the chalice read pro vocationibus sacerdotalibus.
This week, I was able to use a skill I learned last term to read the inscription on another chalice, which read, Χριστε ελεησον, which, in the Latin alphabet reads, Christe eleison, Christ have mercy.
I was really happy to see this ancient language of the Church and her liturgy in daily use, even in this small way.
I'm becoming quite a fan of the Oscott Greek course...
