Friday Five: Adoramus Te

Adoramus te, Christe,
et benedicimus tibi,
quia per sanctam crucem tuam
redemisti mundum.
Qui passus es pro nobis,
Domine, miserere nobis.

We adore you, O Christ,
and we bless you,
because by your holy cross
you have redeemed the world.
O Lord, who suffered for us,
have mercy on us.

1. How will you pray and worship today?

2. Share a powerful memory or memories of Good Friday past.

3. How have you grown and experienced God's love during this past Lent?

4. In whom do you see the face of the suffering Christ most clearly?

5. Where do you find hope for resurrection?

Bonus: Share a song, poem, or prayer that makes the paschal mystery come alive for you.

  1. My reflections are here. Love and blessings on this most holy day.

  2. Thanks, Sophia and mompriest! This isn't a 5, but it's right on topic; I just posted a Eucharistic Prayer for Easter and had intended to make it more generally for the Sundays of Easter and post it for WedFest (which I'll still try to remember to do), but it turned out quite focused on the Easter texts plus hints from earlier in Holy Week, so I thought I'd leave it on the comments. It may be a little late to customize it to your own preferences if you want to use it, but everyone is welcome to take from it what you'd like. Easter Blessings to all!

  3. I am very mindful this morning of the power of this day. Doing today’s ff
    helped to focus that. Blessed triduum!

  4. Right this minute I'm just praying to get my sermon back---teh one I stayed up til 1 am writing. Now my hard drive has apparently died and I am freaking out since I have to be at work in 90 minutes and I have to shower and get dressed in there, too. Not how I need to start the day.

  5. I posted my reflections here.

    I am struggling with an unbloggable event. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I will be preaching this Sunday and I hope that the good news of God's love as shown to us through the resurrection of his son Jesus will come through in my message, even as I struggle to hold on to the hope of resurrection.

  6. am just stopping by to check time to play, but thank you sophia for the thoughtful questions to frame my journey through today. prayers for revdrmom and for the lost sermon to be found...and ((((gg))))
    peace be within all of you....

  7. Hugs Rev Dr.'ll do great, even if you don't recover it...Lots of love!!

  8. I'm taking a blog sabbath for the weekend (from writing, not so much reading :)), but I posted some holy week reflections at my place.

  9. Here's a mish-mash of thoughts aboutGood Friday.

  10. I hope your hard drive is resurrected sooner than Sunday, Rev Dr. Mom!

    Don't have a good place to play, but no question about my most memorable Good Friday ever: 15 years ago, April 1st...found out I was pregnant with older son. Soooo hard to put on that solemn GF demeanor when leaping with joy inside!

  11. God Guurill, I hit publish before finishing...prayers for you, for the power of the Spirit to sustain you in the midst of a dark crisis.

  12. Stopping in quickly wish all of you a blessed and meaningful weekend. I have to leave right away, so I cannot play, but I have been posting something each day this weeek and I just posted the one for today. I am praying for you, God Guurirl. May the hope of resurrection be real, joyful, and bring renewed hope to all of us who are struggling today.

  13. I see more and more the circluar spiral from Lent through Good Friday the Rising to Pentecost and beyond.

    I prayed this day... here.

    Easter Blessings and may the 'White Light' be yours to all!

  14. Thanks for this, Sophia! My thoughts are here.

    GG, praying most specially for you today...particularly as you prepare for Easter preaching.

  15. I played here. Blessings on your holy Triduum! Christ is risen indeed!

  16. I'm playing over at my place in just a few minutes, after the Good Friday bulletins get folded. Lord, have mercy - it's almost time to take a breath and relax.

  17. "Prayers in the City" were prayed here

  18. I posted quite a while ago, but I forgot to note it here. Good Good Friday!

  19. opps,

  20. I'm a little late but operator error yesterday resulting in my post being deleted!

  21. Not able to post a five, but can offer this year's Easter poem.

    It's different for me, but works. May the grace of the Risen Christ be with all of you!
