Te Deum Laudamus

The Te Deum is a traditional hymn of joy and thanksgiving. It’s author is unknown, although It is often attributed to Sts. Ambrose, Augustine, or Hilary. It is sung or prayed at the end of the Office of the Readings for the Liturgy of the Hours on Sundays outside of Lent, daily during the Octaves of Christmas and Easter, and on Solemnities and Feast Days. A partial indulgence is granted to the faithful who recite it in thanksgiving and a plenary indulgence is granted if the hymn is recited publicly on the last day of the year.

A modern translation of the Te Deum is the hymn, “Holy God, we Praise Thy Name.”

We all have so much for which to give thanks on this historic day. Let us sing along and get that indulgence!
