O Adonai, et Dux domus Israel, qui Moysi in igne flammae rubi apparuisti, et ei in Sina legem dedisti: veni ad redimendum nos in brachio extento.
O My Lord and Leader of the House of Israel, who appeared to Moses in the fire of the burning bush and gave him the Law on Sinai: Come and redeem us with an outstretched arm.
“Adonai” is not just “Lord” but My Lord! This makes it all very personal, does it not? Sure, the King of kings and the Lord of lords is our Lord of necessity, but voicing this, saying My Lord! makes a difference. It’s like saying I believe instead of We believe.
My Lord is the Leader of the House of Israel, greater than Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, greater than David, greater than all the saints and prophets. Greater than Moses. He is their Leader, My Leader. I belong to the House of Israel, the family of faith, whose Father is Jesus, the Son of the Mother of the Redeemer in Genesis 3,15.
He is Yahweh. He is I am who Am in the flame of the burning bush. He is the One providing The Law, the Commandments.
He is the One, who provides the wherewithal to fulfill the commandments with the redemption he provides to us, to me, with an outstretched arm, indeed, with outstretched arms, crucified for love of us, for love of me, our Lord, My Lord, Adonai.
O My Lord! Son of the Immaculate Conception, grant that we, that I, might live in humble thanksgiving for all you have done and continue to do for us.
