Reading today's article on First Things's website, I was please to read Neuhaus quoting the Adore Te Devote - attributed to Thomas Aquinas. I post it here in honour of the Advent season and the Mass of Christ:

Godhead here in hiding, whom I do adore
Masked by these bare shadows, shape and nothing
See, Lord, at thy service low lies here a heart
Lost, all lost in wonder at the God thou art.

Seeing, touching, tasting are in thee deceived;
How says trusty hearing? That shall be believed;
What God’s Son has told me, take for truth I do;
Truth himself speaks truly or there’s nothing true.
