O quam gloriosum est regnum...

Here is Victoria's beautiful song of love to Our Lord on the Feast of All Saints, in honor of those blessed souls who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. The link is:

These are the words:
O quam gloriosum est regnum, in quo cum Christo gaudent omnes sancti: amicti stolis albis, sequuntur Agnum quocumque ierit.

Translation: O how glorious is the kingdom wherein all the Saints rejoice with Christ: clothed in white robes, they follow the Lamb wherever He goes.

Blessed be God in His angels and in His saints.

Happy feast day, Thomas.

The Feast of All Saints

9 After this I saw a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and tribes, and peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne, and in sight of the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands: 10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying: Salvation to our God, who sitteth upon the throne, and to the Lamb.
11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and the ancients, and the four living creatures; and they fell down before the throne upon their faces, and adored God, 12 Saying: Amen. Benediction, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, honour, and power, and strength to our God for ever and ever. Amen.

--from The Apocalypse of Saint John, Chapter 7, verses 9-12.
