Congratulations Venerable English College! Ad Moltos Annos!

The Venerable English College, a seminary in Rome for the formation of priests for the dioceses of England and Wales, is celebrating its 650th. anniversary. The seminary was only founded in 1579, but there has been an English presence on the site in Via di Monserrato since the establishment of the Hospice of St Thomas of Canterbury in 1362, making it the oldest English institution outside England.

The Angelicum has been privileged throughout the years of having students from the English College. We are grateful for the presence of Msgr. Philip Whitmore [Westminster]; Luke de Pulford [Southwark]; Benjamin Woodley [Westminster]; Tristan Cranfield [Arundel & Brighton]; Liam Bradley [Menevia]; Daniel Etienne [Lancaster], Michael Patey [Northampton] and many more during this academic year.

Te Thoma, méritis láudibus ámbiunt
qui te conspíciunt númine cælico
sæclis propósitum, lúmin
e ut áfferas
divo fonte salúbriter. 

Morum mundíties te quoque prædicat
quem puris símilem præstitit Angelis,
ac vultum Dómini nunc sine término
largítu tibi límpidum. 

Non te, divítiæ, prædiam, stémmata
obléctant: húmilis per crucis áspera
tu Christum séqueris, nisu in ómnibus
eius quærere glóriam. 

Humáni géneris qui decus énites,
mundo restítuas íntegra dógmata,
da castis hómines áctibush hæreant,
Christi iússaque díligant. 

Sint laudis Tríadi cántica iúgiter,
quæ te miríficis compsit honóribus,
quæ donet sócios nos tibi pérfrui
pacis múnere pérpetis.

L'Università celebrerà la Festa di San Tommaso marzo 7, 2012.

Angelicum Hymn (?)

The Angelicum Fight Song? No, this is from our Angelicum College in Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines. Angelicum College is an institution administered and staffed by our Filipino Dominican Friars and Sisters. It is renown for its successful Non-graded System of education since 1972. It was founded by Rev. Fr. Rogelio B. Alarcón, OP who became its first Rector. When goggling Angelicum, many search engines take you to their website instead of ours! Perhaps we should think of composing a fight song for our University. Any composers out there?

Table Ronde/Tavola Rotonda

Immagini della Tavola Rotonda sulla Ecologia umana e sviluppo sostenibile sostenuta lunedì gennaio 23, 2012 all'Angelicum con Dominique Lecourt (Università Denis Diderot, direttore del Centre Canguilhem); Stéphane Bauzon (Angelicum-Università Tor Vergata); Joseph d'Amércourt, OP (Angelicum); Giulia Lombardi (Angelicum); ed Alessandro Salucci, OP (Angelicum).

Festum in Conversione S. Pauli, Apostoli

Excélsam Pauli glóriam
concélebret Ecclésia,
quem mire sibi apóstolum
ex hoste fecit Dóminus.

Quibus succénsus æstibus
in Christi nomen sæviit,
exársit his impénsius
amórem Christi prædicans.

O magnum Pauli méritum!
Cælum conscéndit tértium,
audit verba mystérii
quæ nullus audet éloqui.

Dum verbi spargit sémina,
seges surgit ubérrima;
sic cæli replent hórreum
bonórum fruges óperum.

Micántis more lámpadis
perfúndit orbem rádiis;
fugat errórum ténebras,
ut sola regnet véritas.

Christo sit omnis glória,
cum Patre et almo Spíritu,
qui dedit vas tam fúlgidum
electiónis géntibus. Amen.

Oratio S. Thomae Aquinatis ante studium

CREATOR ineffabilis, qui de thesauris sapientiae tuae tres Angelorum hierarchias designasti et eas super caelum empyreum miro ordine collocasti atque universi partes elegantissime distribuisti: Tu, inquam, qui verus fons luminis et sapientiae diceris ac supereminens principium, infundere digneris super intellectus mei tenebras tuae radium claritatis, duplices, in quibus natus sum, a me removens tenebras, peccatum scilicet et ignorantiam. Tu, qui linguas infantium facis disertas, linguam meam erudias atque in labiis meis gratiam tuae benedictionis infundas. Da mihi intelligendi acumen, retinendi capacitatem, addiscendi modum et facilitatem, interpretandi subtilitatem, loquendi gratiam copiosam. Ingressum instruas, progressum dirigas, egressum compleas. Tu, qui es verus Deus et homo, qui vivis et regnas in saecula saeculorum. Amen.
