Credo

November 26, 2006

I haven’t had much exposure in my life to creeds. So as I listened to this electronic mass from the fantastic Adom9, I decided to look up the lyrics to the latin and the English translation. I find it so gorgeous. And the best thing is that Catholics get to recite this every mass!

Credo in unum Deum,
Patrem omnipotentem,
factorem caeli et terrae,
visibilium omnium et invisibilium,
Et in unum Dominum Jesum Christum,
Filium Dei unigenitum,
Et ex Patre natum ante omnia saecula.
Deum de Deo, lumen de lumine,
Deum verum de Deo vero.
Genitum, non factum,
consubstantialem Patri:
Per quem omnia facta sunt,
qui propter nos homines,
Et propter nostram salutem
descendit de caelis.
Et incarnatus est de Spiritu Sancto
ex Maria Virgine: Et homo factus est. Crucifixus etiam pro nobis:
sub Pontio Pilato
passus et sepultus est.
Et resurrexit tertia die,
secundum Scripturas.
Et ascendit in caelum:
sedet ad dexteram Patris.
Et iterum venturus est cum Gloria
judicare vivos et mortuos:
Cujus regni non erit finis.
Et in spiritum sanctum,
Dominum, et vivificantem:
Qui ex Patre, Filioque procedit.
Qui cum Patre et Filio
simul adoratur, et conglorificatur:
Qui locutus est per Prophetas.
Et unam sanctam catholicam
et apostolicam Ecclesiam.
Confiteor unum baptisma
in remissionem peccatorum.
Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum.
Et vitam venturi saeculi.
Amen.

    You have heard of Masses set to music, yes? Seems that I might have guided you to some on iTunes. At any rate, Credo would be in most any set mass… 🙂
