|Bro. Innocent OP & Bro. Raphael OP in Sirius XM Radio Station in Midtown Manhattan|
Click on the image below to go to the audio link to hear the friars talk about the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. By the way, the photo of the Brothers in the studio was taken 37 floors up at the Sirus XM Studios in Midtown Manhattan (Avenue of the Americas) just across the street from Radio City Music Hall.
At the end of the show the brothers sing the O Sacrum Convivium LIVE! Written by St. Thomas Aquinas, this beautiful hymn acknowledges the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist and is prayed by Dominican Friars whenever we begin the Divine Office in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament.
O sacrum convivium!
in quo Christus sumitur:
recolitur memoria passionis eius:
mens impletur gratia:
et futurae gloriae nobis pignus datur.
O sacred banquet!
in which Christ becomes our food,
the memory of his Passion is celebrated,
the souls is filled with grace,
and a pledge of future glory to us.
