The Salutaris

        On this first Friday, there was adoration of the Blessed Sacrament after Mass. At the beginning of the Exposition, we sang the Salutaris by Thomas Aquinas. It's very beautiful, so here are the verses.

         O saving Victim, op'ning wide                         
         The gate of heav'n to all below, 
         Our foes press on from ev'ry side; 
         Thine aid supply, thy strength bestow. 

         All praise and thanks to thee ascend
         Forevermore, blest One in Three;
         O Grant us life that shall end   
         In our true native land with thee. Amen.
