As an RCIA Candidate, my Church said it was OK for me to attend the “Tenebrae” Service on Wednesday, 4 April. What means “Tenebrae” and what would I be getting into?
My RCIA Sponser gave me this pamphlet of prayers required daily for The Legion Of Mary Auxilliary members, called Legion Of Mary Tessera". What means "tessera?
The middle section of this set of prayers is titled “The Catena Legionis”. I’m willing to venture that “Legionis” means “Legion”, leaving me scratching my head over “Catena”
The cover of the pamphlet has two sentences
4A) INIMICITIAS PONAM INTER TE ET MULIEREMET SEMEN TUUM ET SEMENILLIUS IPSUM CONTERET CAPUT TUUM
4B) BEATA QUAE CREDIDIT MULIER ECCE FILIUS TUUS ECCE MATER TUA
Thank you in advance
