So, I was leaving St. Mary's after my PSR class finished this evening, and I glanced down into the school cafeteria and see some friends from the Newman Society and a monstrance. Now, my Newman friends are cool, and ostentoria are even cooler, so I thought I would see what was going on. Turned out the parish was having praise and worship and Eucharistic adoration for the high school youth group, and the Newman folks had showed up to help out/participate. I justified most of the music by telling myself "it's not a Mass," but it was generally pretty neat. And we hardly ever get opportunities for adoration, so that was good. Afterwards, though, we were talking about music, and a friend of mine mentioned the things people do the Agnus Dei, and how they always change the second stanza or add on extra ones.
Apparently someone somewhere had decided that "righteous dude" was an appropriate term for Christ.
Just to refresh everybody's memory, that's a line from Ferris Bueller's Day Off
. Yes, our Lord is apparently Ferris Bueller.Agnus Dei, qui tolis peccata mundi, miserere nobisAgnus Dei, qui tolis peccata mundi, miserere nobisAgnus Dei, qui tolis peccata mundi, dona nobis pacem.
