Sancta Missa, we have loved you

Ode to Sancta Missa
(Sung to the 50’s hit “Mona Lisa” Artistic liberties taken)

Sancta Missa, Sancta Missa, we have loved you.
You’re so like the heav’nly Mass in the sky.
Is it only ‘cause you’re Latin they have blamed you?
For that Sancta Missa belongs to you and I.

Do you live to tempt a lover Sancta Missa?
Or is it your way to grace a fallen heart?
Many prayers have brought to your altar,
And they live there and they grow there.
You are warm, you are real, Sancta Missa;
Not simply a cold, and lonely, lonely work of God.

Do you live to tempt a lover Sancta Missa?
Or just a great and lovely, lovely work of God?

...

Thank you. Thank you very much. I'll be here all week.

What a hauntingly beautiful picture. Its almost like all the saints of the past are coming to the newly freed Latin Mass.
