Up to Jesus I goJune 29, 2007 at 2:40 am | Posted in Celtic, Chapel, Gaudy, Jesus College, Oxford University, Prayer | Leave a comment
For my first ever Gaudy. I shall leave you with this video clip from College and a note to Sarah: you can share the sconce you threatened me with, with me!
Above the door, a Celtic prayer in this most Celtic of all the colleges of Oxford University may be explained as “Let (our) prayer go up (to God) :: that (God’s) grace/kindness may come down (to us)” or, more precisely, thanks to Mr. Dumbra‘s advice:
“Let prayer go up :: let grace come down”
ASCENDAT ORATIO :: DESCENDAT GRATIA
