O how glorious is the kingdom...

Sunday, November 23, 2014

Today is the Feast of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe, which falls on the last Sunday before Advent, i.e., at the end of the liturgical year. At the 6.15pm Mass & Vespers tonight at Blackfriars, Oxford, the Schola Magna will sing Tomás Luis de Victoria's setting of O Quam Gloriosum, whose text is below.

Later, I hope to post the text of the sermon on Christ the King which I will deliver tonight during Evensong at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. 


O quam gloriosum est regnum,
in quo cum Christo gaudent omnes Sancti!
Amicti stolis albis,
sequuntur Agnum, quocumque ierit. 

O how glorious is the kingdom
in which all the saints rejoice with Christ!
Clad in robes of white
they follow the Lamb wherever he goes.
(cf. Revelation 7:9)

- fr. Matthew Jarvis OP
