Sedes Consilii Centralis: urbs Roma...
Does everyone know what a zenith is? It’s that point of the heavens vertically above one. Is it just me or isn’t it just glorious to have your zenith be the Holy City (la Roma)!?
Infatti, wouldn’t it be just the best to die here in some glorious manner (like while professing the Nicene Creed at the words: …Et unam, sanctam, Catholicam et Apostolicam [et Roman!] Ecclesiam…) and then be interned in this rich soil soaked by the blood of the martyrs and trod over by the blessed apostes Peter and Paul?
At the internment I can just picture the cleric in his black cope and the altar boy holding the aspersorium stoup and the wondrous prayer from the Roman Ritual!
