Agnus.. what?

Oct 30, 2017


Do you know what we are singing in Latin when the priest breaks the bread during mass (which, by the way, is called the Fraction Rite)? We are singing “Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.” And the last time we end with “grant us peace.” 

The English is derived from the Latin that we sing in mass.
If you are interested, here is a handy pronunciation guide. 

Agnus Dei qui tollis

Ah-nyoos Deh-ee kwee tawl-lees

peccata mundi

peh-kah-tah moon-dee

miserere nobis

mee-seh-reh-reh naw-bees

dona nobis pacem

daw-nah naw-bees pah-chehm


Sing to the Glory of God, (in Latin, too!)
