Me iuvat Latinus

Got this following from today's cycle-I missal reading:

Ecce vénio, Dómine, ut fáciam voluntátem tuam. (Here am I, O Lord, to do your will.)

Salvátor noster Iesus Christus destrúxit mortem, et illuminávit vitam per Evangélium. (Our Savior Jesus Christ destroyed death and brought light to life through the Gospel.)

It's so very, very beatiful to me. I've been floating on these words for the past several hours. Meditating on them brought an almost painfully sudden bloom of peace in my soul, like fresh cold water being poured on a dry old wound. I really need to brush up on my Latin. (And if I made any Latin errors in this post, please notify me.)
