I have already posted this prayer at the Quote of the Day thread. I think it has a place here as well. Smiley

Prayer of Saint Melito Bishop of Sardis.
Born as a Son,
led forth as a Lamb,
sacrificed as a Sheep,
buried as a Man,
He rose from the dead as a God,
for He was by nature God and man.

He is all things:
He judges, and so He is Law;
He teaches, and so He is Wisdom;
He saves, and so He is Grace;
He begets, and so He is Father;
He is begotten, and so He is Son;
He suffers, and so He is Sacrifice;
He is buried, and so He is man;
He rises again, and so He is God.
This is Jesus Christ,
to whom belongs glory for all ages.

Good Day Shin.
Yes, Easter was nice.
There had been some fear of a terror attack during this holidays but so far, so good.
We are grateful to God for that. crucifix

Who will help me sing this hymn ?  Smiley

I have been humming it over and over for the last few days.
A great hymn. I love it.
God must have inspired the composer of both the lyrics and the music.

On a hill far away
On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,
the emblem of suffering and shame;
and I love that old cross where the dearest and best
for a world of lost sinners was slain.
Refrain:
So I'll cherish the old rugged cross,
till my trophies at last I lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
and exchange it some day for a crown.

O that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,
has a wondrous attraction for me;
for the dear Lamb of God left his glory above
to bear it to dark Calvary.
 Refrain

In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,
a wondrous beauty I see,
for 'twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,
to pardon and sanctify me.
Refrain

To the old rugged cross I will ever be true;
its shame and reproach gladly bear;
then he'll call me some day to my home far away,
where his glory forever I'll share.
Refrain

Terence, with Africanus, Pompeius and companions were a group of fifty martyrs who were cruelly martyred during the persecutions of Emperor Trajanus Decius. According to tradition, they were forced into a pit filled with serpents and stinging reptiles. Those who survived those ordeals were then beheaded.
This took place in 250 at Carthage.

Saint Isaac of Monteluco
He is also known as Isaac of Spoleto. He was a Syrian who fled his native land to escape the Monophysite persecution. He became a hermit on Monte Luco in Italy. Isaac is believed to be one of those who restored eremitical life in Italy in his era. He founded a large hermitage in the vicinity Spoleto. He reportedly had a vision of Our Lady and was known for miracles and prophesies.
He died in 550.

Saint Joseph Moscati
Joseph Moscati aka Giuseppe Moscati, was born on 25 July 1880 in Benevento, Italy, to pious, aristocratic Italian parents. He was the seventh of nine children. His father, Francesco, was a well-known lawyer and his mother, Rosa De Luca dei Marchesi di Roseto, came from the nobility. In 1884, when Joseph was four years old,
Francesco moved the family to Naples, the city where Joseph spent most of the rest of his life.
Joseph was a very friendly and well-liked boy. He was also extremely intelligent; even better, he was a pious, prayerful child.
He received his First Holy Communion at age eight and was confirmed at age ten.
Joseph attended medical school at the University of Naples from 1897.
During his first year at the University, his father died and for the rest of his medical studies, Joseph faced a lot of ethical and religious problems.  As can be expected, most of his colleagues were materialistic and had no time for Christianity. He, however, persevered with his convictions and resisted the temptation to conform.
Despite the personal loss and grief, Joseph graduated “summa cum laude” with a doctorate from the medical school on April 4, 1903. He was only 23 years old.
Immediately after graduation, Dr. Moscati began working at the Ospedali Ruinity degli Incurabili (Santa Maria del Popolo), (Hospital of the Incurables), in Naples where he became an administrator.
On April 8, 1906, Mount Vesuvius erupted. In an act of selflessness, Giuseppe heroically rescued the patients trapped inside the hospital at Torre del Greco, which was located just a few miles from the volcano’s crater, just before the roof collapsed from the weight of the ash.
In 1911 there was an outbreak of cholera in Naples. Giuseppe worked day and night treating the poor without charge.
He worked hard to try and prevent the spread of the epidemic by performing public health inspections and researching the causes of the disease so as to prevent it's further spread.
That same year, Joseph became the medical superintendent of the Incurabili. He was later given the chair in Chemical Physiology at the University of Naples and became world renowned for his academic research.
Joseph had a special love for the poor and the homeless. Often times he would secretly leave money and a prescription with patients who were unable to afford medical care.
He saw his patients as persons with a body and a soul and believed that the health of the body and the health of the soul were inseparable. He reportedly said: “One must attend first to the salvation of the soul and only then to the salvation of the body” Accordingly, before he examined a patient or engaged in research he would place himself in the presence of God.
Professionally, he commanded the highest admiration and respect from his peers and his students. Some of his pupils would accompany him to Mass. He received communion everyday and had a great devotion to Our Lady, the Immaculate Conception.
On 12 April 1927, after doing his normal rounds in the hospital, visiting the poor and seeing patients in his house, he felt ill. He stopped work and went to his room, sat in his chair and died quietly. It was around 3pm. He was 46 years old.
He was buried in the cemetery of Poggio Reale in Naples
In 1920 he was re-intered in the church of Gesù Nuovo, Naples
Pope John Paul II canonized Joseph Moscati on October 25, 1987.
His canonization miracle:
A young ironworker who was dying of leukemia was cured. The patient‘s mother dreamed of a doctor wearing a white coat; she later identified him as Moscati when shown a photograph of him.
He is the patron saint of bachelors and physicians. He reportedly referred to medicine as the “sublime mission”
