Analysis and comments on Sursum Corda by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Comment 1 of 1, added on January 3rd, 2006 at 2:28 PM.

lift up your heart...sursum corda,, is a preface prayer prior to sanctus
sanctus sanctus Dominus Deus Sabaoth...Holy holy holy Lord God... the
prayer is said by a holy Roman Catholic priest before the
Consecration,(changing of bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Chrtist
at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Sursum Corda are latin words of
reverence, but seem to be disregarded as such by Emerson. Please comment.
Thank you, Kiro.
