Since morning prayer, I’ve been singing “O praise Him, Alleluia …” and tried to find a video with it, but found another favorite by David Crowder Band called “O Praise Him” with a simple, but interesting video.  Here it is:

MASS – (Fr Santos) — “the sabbath was made for man , not man for the sabbath”

SPANISH 2 – (Dr Jimenez) — chapter 15 on haber + past participles.  If we stay on schedule this semester, we’ll try to read the Spanish version of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

New Testament class @ St John Vianney College Seminary, Miami, FLNEW TESTAMENT – (Fr Michael) — today, we started the Synoptic Gospels (reviewed side-by-side syn-optically), more specifically the Gospels of Mark & Matthew.  Even though Mark is the shortest gospel book, 80% of Mark’s verses are reproduced in Matthew while 65% is in Luke.  There may also exist a hypothetical source “Q” that scholars propose to explain other similarities between Matthew & Luke not borrowed from Mark. 

CULTURAL FOOD NIGHT — today was Columbian food night with a small army of cooks creating some great food.

Multiplication of 5 loaves & 2 fishMASS – (Fr Santos) — [half sandwich Christmas giftJesus’ multiplication of 5 loaves & 2 fish.  A supernatural miracle by Jesus … or PERHAPS a selfish crowd was moved to give from their personal stash.  — Maybe?  Just as fantastic of a miracle. Perhaps.

SPANISH 2 – (Dr Jimenez) — this is the second semester (the second part – I didn’t fail!) of Spanish 2.  Among other things, we went over the Lord’s Prayer in Spanish (especially since the version in the Spanish Liturgy of the Hours books is completely different):  [Lord’s Prayer in various languages]

President Bush praying (in Spanish)Padre nuestro, que estás en el cielo
Santificado sea Tu nombre;
Venga a nosotros Tu reino.
Hágase Tu voluntad
En la tierra como en el cielo.
Danos hoy nuestro pan de cada día.
Perdona nuestras ofensas,
Como también nosotros perdonamos a los que nos ofenden.
Y no nos dejes caer en la tentación;
líbranos de todo mal.
[Porque Tuyo es el Reino, el Poder y la Gloria por siempre, Señor. Amén.]
