Shockwaves of the Eschaton


The Readings for the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

Vetustátem nóvitas,
Umbram fugat véritas,
Noctem lux elíminat.

Now the new the old effaces,

Truth away the shadow chases,
Light dispels the gloom of night.

O sacred banquet
Tardis and Tesseract of eternity
Feast of Ramandu
Last Homely House before the wilds
坎  坤  乾 

Kǎn Kūn Qián
Gift of heaven
formed of earth
Made by man
Transformed by God
Fed to man
Living on earth
Rising to heaven
Lembas and Soma
Manna fallen and spice that flows
Ambrosia, grok 

Bread of heaven
Fulfillment of the mystery of Earth
What is fallen and buried
Rises again a thousandfold
Philosophers stone
Gold of the Alchemists
Palantir of Westernesse
sword in stone embedded
Lia Fail
Showing Kingly Priests who dare to touch
Chalice of Salvation
Pare Dadani
Cauldron of Immortality
Core Ansc of Divine Hospitality
Holy Grail
Sang Real
The true vine
the fruit of salvation
the fullness of harvest
Fulfillment of the Mystery of Water
What is birthed in water
Dies in wine
And is reborn
Sacrament most holy
Gate of heaven
Consuming us

Sumit unus, sumunt mille:
Quantum isti, tantum ille:
Nec sumptus consúmitur.

Whether one or thousands eat:
All receive the self-same meat:
Nor the less for others leave.
