Te Deum Laudamus!!!

+ J.M.J.A.T
Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam per Immaculata

The Te Deum is the official Hymn of Thanksgiving of the Church. It is attributed to St. Ambrose and St. Augustine. We sing it as part of Matins on feast days and also on special occasions of thanksgiving such as priestly ordinations, religious professions, and on Dec. 31st to thank God for the graces obtained during the year which has come to an end. Often the saints were known to sing the Te Deum for special graces received. Like the saints, we recite with great gratitude to God:

Deus propitius esto mihi peccatori.

Jesu mitis et humilis corde, Fac cor nostrum secundum Cor tuum. (ter)

Jesus, Mary, Joseph, Anne, Therese, I love You; Save souls!
