Catholic Word of the Day: SEQUENCE, 02-25-12 ^ | 02-25-12 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary

Posted on 02/25/2012 10:23:16 AM PST by Salvation

Featured Term (selected at random):


A hymn of joy in varying meter sung or recited before the Gospel at Mass on certain feast days. Thos that have survived are the Easter Victimae Paschali, the Veni Sancte Spiritus at Pentecost, and the Lauda Sion for Corpus Christi. The Dies Irae at some Masses for the Dead is not, strictly speaking, a liturgical sequence. (Etym. Latin sequentia, a following, sequence.)

All items in this dictionary are from Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary, © Eternal Life. Used with permission.

TOPICS: Apologetics; Catholic; History; Theology
KEYWORDS: catholic; liturgy
I always think the Paschal Sequence is so beautiful.
