Stabat Mater - Giovanni Battista Pergolesi

Stabat mater dolorosa
Juxta crucem lacrymosa
Dum pendebat Filius.
Cujus animam gementem
Contristatem et dolentes
Pertransivit gladius.
O quam tristis et afflicta
Fuit illa benedicta
Mater unigeniti.
Quae morebat et dolebat
et tremebat cum videbat
Nati poenas inclyti.
Quis est homo qui non fleret
Christi Matrem si videret
In tanto supplicio?
Quis posset non contristari
Piam Matrem contemplari
Dolentem cum Filio?
Pro peccatis suae gentis
Vidit Jesum in tormentis
Et flagellis subditum.
Vidit suum dulcem natum
Morientem desolatum,
Dum emisit spiritum.
Eia Mater fons amoris,
Me sentire vim doloris
Fac ut tecum lugeam.
Fac ut ardeat cor meum,
In amando Christum Deum
Ut sibi complaceam.
Sancta Mater istud agas
Crucifixi fige plagas
Corde meo valide.
Tui nati vulnerati
Jam dignati pro me pati
Poenas mecum divide.
Fac me vere tecum flere
Crucifixo condolere
Donec ego vixero.
Juxta crucem tecum stare
Te libenter sociare
In planctu desidero.
Virgo, virginum praeclara
Mihi jam non sis amara
Fac me tecum plangere.
Fac ut portem Christi mortem
Passionis ejus sortem
Et plagas recolere.
Fac me plagis vulnerari
Cruce hac inebriari
Ob amorem Filii.
Inflammatus et accensus
Per te Virgo sim defensus
In die judicii.
Fac me Cruce custodiri
Morte Christi praemuniri
Confoveri gratia
Quando corpus morietur
Fac ut animae donetur
Paradisi gloria. Amen.

The mother stood sorrowing
by the cross, weeping
while her Son hung there;
Whose soul, lamenting,
sorrowing and grieving,
has been pierced by the sword.
O how sad and afflicted
was that blessed
Mother of her only-begotten Son.
Who wept and grieved
and trembled to behold
the torment of her glorious child.
What man would not weep
if he saw the Mother of Christ
in such torment?
Who could not be sorrowful
to behold the pious mother
grieving with her Son?
For the sins of His people
she saw Jesus in torment
and subjected to the whip.
She saw her sweet Son
dying, forsaken,
as He gave up the spirit.
Ah Mother, fount of love,
let me feel the force of grief,
that I may grieve with you.
Make my heart burn
with the love of Christ, the God,
that I may be pleasing to Him.
Holy Mother, bring this to pass,
transfix the wounds of Him who is 
crucified firmly onto my heart.
Of your wounded Son,
who deigns to suffer for my sake,
let me share the pains.
Make me truly weep with you,
grieving with Him who is crucified
so that I may live.
To stand by the cross with you,
to be freely joined with you
in lamentation, I desire.
Virgin of virgins, resplendent,
do not now be harsh towards me,
let me weep with you.
Let me carry Christ's death,
the destiny of his passion,
and meditate upon his wounds.
Let me suffer the wounds
of that cross, steeped
in love of your Son.
Fired and excited
by you, O Virgin, let me be defended
on the day of judgement.
Let me be shielded by the cross,
protected by Christ's death,
cherished by grace.
When my body dies,
let my soul be given
the glory of paradise.

Quatro Anos por Aqui




Escuto mas não sei
Se o que oiço é silêncio
Ou deus
Escuto sem saber se estou ouvindo
O ressoar das planícies do vazio
Ou a consciência atenta
Que nos confins do universo
Me decifra e fita
Apenas sei que caminho como quem
É olhado amado e conhecido
E por isso em cada gesto ponho
Solenidade e risco.

Hiroshi Sugimoto - Seascapes

Baltic Sea , near Rügen - 1996
Ligurian Sea - Saviore - 1993

North Atlantic Ocean - Cape Breton - 1996
Hiroshi Sugimoto fala sobre "Time Exposed:

The first portfolio of seascapes I published was entitled 'Time Exposed' because time 
is revealed in the sea. When I began thinking about the seascapes I was thinking, 
what would be the most unchanged scene on the surface of the earth? Ever since 
the first men and cultures appeared, they have been facing seas and scenes of 
nature. The landscape has changed over thousands, millions of years, man has 
cultivated the ground, built cultures and cities, skyscrapers. The seascapes, I 
thought, must be the least changed scene, the oldest vision that we can share with 
ancient peoples. The sea may be polluted, but it looks approximately the same. So 
that's a very heavy time concept. People have a lot of strange ideas about my 
seascapes - they think these photographs were done using very long exposures, but 
they are in fact very fast because I wanted to stop the motion of the waves, which 
are constantly moving.
