New Member of the Grotto choir? Toddler sings, "Tantum Ergo"

We'd like to claim him, but he is not at Grotto.

Go ahead and say it: Aaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!

And some think Latin is too hhhaaaaaarrrddd.

Written by Thomas Aquinas, the last two verses of the Pange Lingua are all to familiar to Grotto-goers. But, in case you need a cheat sheet while the video is playing, here you go.

Tantum ergo

Tantum ergo Sacramentum
Veneremur cernui
Et antiquum documentum
Novo cedat ritui:
Praestet fides supplementum
Sensuum defectui.

Genitori, Genitoque
Laus et iubilatio,
Salus, honor, virtus quoque
Sit et benedictio:
Procedenti ab utroque
Compar sit laudatio.

Te Deum Laudamus! Home

This is really wonderful and amazing.

So few churches even have Benediction these days so this lad was very lucky to have been taken regularly to one that does keep up the tradition.

Thank goodness that now we have the Motu Proprio he will grow up able to enjoy the beauty of the Traditional Mass and its other accompanying Liturgical Services.
