Quem queritis ad sepulcrum?

Some Easter reflections from the famous Irish prayer known as the Faeth Fiada dating from the eighth century.

Atomriug indiu
niurt gene Críst cona bathius
niurt a chrochtho cona adnacul
niurt a essérgi cona fhresgabaáil
niurt a thoíniudo fri brithemnas mbrátho.

Domini est Salus
Christi est Salus
Sulas tua, Domine, sit semper nobiscum!

Today I gird myself
with the power of Christ's birth together with His baptism
with the power of His crucifixion together with His burial
with the power of His Resurrection together with His ascension,
with the power of His descent to pronounce the judgement of the Day of Doom

Salvation is of the Lord
Salvation is of Christ
May your salvation, Lord, be with us always!
