Tis Good Lord to Be Here, but not in most of the Archdiocese of Toronto, because Cardinal Collins says that here, there is

How much longer, Eminence, will you cower before priests who refuse to offer the Sacraments and open their churches? 

How much longer, Eminence, will you cower before the diktats of an egoist, unchurched, ignoramus Premier who has neither common sense nor an intelligent quotient above room temperature in order to govern rather than cower in fear before a modern day Mengele! 

How much longer, Eminence, will you cower before “virtuous” public health officials, who have used psychological warfare on the public and a Mayor that laughs behind your back? 

How much longer, Eminence, will you engage in this spiritual abuse that you have put upon the faithful by cooperating with this evil? 

Advent. Christmastide. Epiphantide. The Gesimas. Ordinary Time, if you will. Ash Wednesday. Lent I, II. Is Holy Week next? No Triduum for the second year? Easter, gone? My bet is, yes!

Quite the legacy. 

Cowardice. Hypocrisy. Abandonment of the sheep by a false Shepherd.


1 'Tis good, Lord, to be here!
Thy glory fills the night;
Thy face and garments, like the sun,
Shine with unborrowed light.

2 'Tis good, Lord, to be here,
Thy beauty to behold,
Where Moses and Elijah stand,
Thy messengers of old.

3 Fulfiller of the past!
Promise of things to be!
We hail Thy body glorified,
And our redemption see.

4 Before we taste of death,
We see Thy kingdom come;
We fain would hold the vision bright,
And make this hill our home.

5 'Tis good, Lord, to be here!
Yet we may not remain;
But since thou bidst us leave the mount,
Come with us to the plain.

Thank you for posting this. I had never heard of this hymn before and and grateful for its melody and words, which keep the Transfiguration alive in my heart.

Played this yesterday as the recessional at the FSSP church in Denver. Great minds think the same thoughts, you know. I always enjoy your musical offerings.
