YOU WANT A LATIN HAIKU? YOU GOT IT!

A couple of commentors on the Rhapsody blog suggested we pull off some Latin Haikus. Here's my attempt!

Ite, Missa Est
(That's the "hymn of sending forth")
Deo gratias! (OOPS! Thank you Chris!)
Wait, that's only two-thirds Latin. Let's try this again.

What are the hymns we sing? Not necessarily in order now...
Offertorium,
et Cantus Introitus,
et Communio.

Inspired by this Sunday's Introit Verse (not the antiphon):
Admirabile
in universa terra
nomen tuum est!
(Admirable in all the earth is your name!)

Best I can do for now!

Peace,
BMP

Wonderful work!

I'm going to have to review the rules of the contest-

I'm not sure I could write one in English:)

Habeas corpus
Post hoc ergo propter hoc
Non compos mentis

It doesn't have to make sense, does it? :)
(P.S. "gracias" is Spanish...)
