Omnipotens semptierne Deus, qui paschale sacramentum in reconciliationis humanae faedere contulisti: da mentibus nostris; ut, quod professione celebramus, imitemur effectu.
Almighty, eternal God, Who is the covenant of man’s atonement [reconciliation] has bestowed the paschal sacrament, grant unto our spirits that what we outwardly celebrate we may imitate effectually. Prayer, Friday in Easter Week, Roman Missal.
You have heard of Quasimodo? Quasi modo means “like just” or “like recently”, and the Roman Missal translation is “as newborn babes”. The child who grew up to become the Hunchback of Notre-Dame was so deformed that he was abandoned by his mother and left at the cathedral.
The archdeacon adopted him and decided to name him for the day he was found, “like recently”, um, “like, today”, which in Latin is, hodie [ho - dee - a]. I think I will nickname him Hodie.
Quasimodo is a fictional character and the main protagonist of the novel, The Hunchback of Notre-Dame, (1831) by Victor Hugo.
