Exposition And Benediction

Posted by james0235 on December 22, 2007

Tonight I went to Exposition and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament at the former St. Leo Parish in south Columbus. The Church has been restored since it was closed in 1999. And it is beautiful. In addition to tonight’s Benediction it was used this morning for Mass and just a couple of weeks ago a wedding. I forgot to bring a camera so the pictures below are from the website of the St. Leo Preservation Society.


O salutaris HostiaSt. Leo Exterior
Quae caeli pandis ostium;
Bella premunt hostilla,
Da robur, fer auxillium.

Uni trinoque Domino
Sit sempiterna gloria,
Qui vitam sine termino
Nobis donet in patria. Amen.


Tantum ergo Sacramentum
Veneremur cernui,
Et antiquum documentum
St. Leo Altar
Novo cedat ritui;
Praestet fides supplementum
Sensuum defectfui.

Genitori Gentioque
Laus et jubilatio,
Salus, honor, virtus quoque

Sit et benedictio;
Procedenti ab utroque

Compar sit laudatio. Amen.

V. You have given them Bread from heaven
R. Having all sweetness with it

Lord Jesus Christ, you gave us the Eucharist as the memorial of your suffering and death. May our worship of this sacrament of your body and blood, help us to experience the salvation won for us and the peace of the kingdom, where you live with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
R: Amen.


Blessed be God.
Blessed be his holy name.
Blessed be Jesus Christ, true God and true man.
Blessed be the name of Jesus.
Blessed be his most Sacred Heart.
Blessed be his most Precious Blood.
Blessed be Jesus in the most holy sacrament of the altar.
Blessed be the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete.
Blessed be the great Mother of God, Mary most holy.
Blessed be her holy and Immaculate Conception.
Blessed be her glorious Assumption.
Blessed be the name of Mary, virgin and Mother.
Blessed be St. Joseph, her most chaste spouse.
Blessed be God in his angels and in his saints.

Holy God, we praise thy name;
Lord of all, we bow before thee;
All on earth they scepter claim;
All in heaven above adore thee.
Infinite they vast domain,
Everlasting is thy reign!

Hark, the loud celestial hymn;
Angel choirs above are raising;
Cherubim and Seraphim,
In unceasing chorus praising,
Fill the heavens with sweet accord:
Holy, holy, holy, Lord!
