I have some questions about this hymn:
1- Why is it said before the Pauline?
2- Why is its tune used in the Apocalypse Vigil for many responses?
3- Why so much repetition?
4- Where did it come from?
5- Slight nit-picking, but shouldn't the 4th virtue be be 'Pi-mah-efto-oo pe.." because the virtue is pitouvo?
6- Also linguistic nit-picking, but is 'Ec-eshopi' more correct? I believe that is for singular feminine, but I'm not sure.
Thank you and God bless
