TRANSLATIONS

Ubi Caritas

  Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est.
  Congregavit nos in unum Christi amor.
  Exultemus, et in ipso iucundemur.
  Timeamus, et amemus Deum vivum.
  Et ex corde diligamus nos sincero.

Where charity and love are, God is there.
Christ's love has gathered us into one.
Let us rejoice and be pleased in Him.
Let us fear, and let us love the living God.
And may we love each other with a sincere heart.

Spiritus sanctus vivificans

​  Spiritus sanctus vivificans vita movens omnia,
  et radix est in omni creatura

  ac omnia de inmunditia abluit,
  tergens crimina ac ungit vulnera,
  et sic est fulgens ac laudabilis vita,
  suscitans et resuscitans omnia.

The Holy Spirit: living and life-giving, the life that’s all things moving,

the root in all created being:
of filth and muck it washes all things clean,
out-scrubbing guilty staining, its balm our wounds constraining,
and so its life with praise is shining,
rousing and reviving all.
