Jesuit On St. Thomas Aquinas And The Feast Of The Corpus Christi

I would like to invite your prayerful reflection on one of the most important liturgical texts of the day,
the sequence Lauda Sion, which St. Thomas Aquinas composed for Corpus Christi shortly after Pope Urban IV prescribed the celebration of the feast throughout the Latin Church. 
Meant to be intoned immediately before the proclamation of the Gospel, this sequence has remained a part of the liturgy to this very day, though I suspect that relatively few contemporary Roman Catholics have the opportunity to hear it sung during Mass.
Link (here) to the post Corpus Christi at the blog entitled City and the World by Jesuit Scholastic Joseph Koczera.
