1) "When the priesthood passed on down - Moses got it, Aaron too
Moses passed it to Skar-yah - Passed Skar-yah it on to John
John did pass it to our Lord,
Christ ordained apostles twelve;
They were sent forth by Him and
Passed it on throughout the world.
Mor'yo Rahemelai-noovadarain "

*Skar-yah refers to Zachariah

What are Catholics to think of this idea of priesthood, particularly John the Baptist to Jesus Christ?

2) "The bread of life I am"
declared the Lord Jesus
Descended from high above to
nourish the world
Father sent me the eternal word
Like a farmer - sown by Gabriel
Mary like the good soil bore
Him in her womb
Priests like angels in their hands
in celebration
Haleluya – u - Haleluya "

How are angels and priest alike? :scratch:

3). "May this offered Eucharist
By the Priest appease Thee Lord
May it gladden angels high
Our departed ones absolve "

Can the happiness of angels or saved humans, be increased by the Mass or any other way?

4) "Peace the bright archangel brought,
Hailing Mary fair" is the official English liturgical translation.

But the Malayalam translation is:
"Manna* makalkkai slomo
Vanneki dhootha varan"

As a native speaker, I would translate it as:

"To the Manna* daughter, Slomo (peace)
Came and gave, the angel-groom"

*I don't know what manna means here.
Can St Gabriel be called groom of Mary?

(Translations are the official liturgical translation used.)

5) I thought I'd revive something here:

"He who bears heaven and earth
Mary bore him in her womb
...
...
The plant which gave the lamb
The fiery rock whence a stream of water flowed
The fish which granted coin
These revealed thee, who gave birth (to God)"

-Is there an Early Church Father, Latin hymn or miraculous story associated with the first two lines?

-The Marian reference to 'The plant which gave the lamb' is the bush where there was a lamb which Abraham sacrificed instead of Isaac at Moriah, right?

- Later in the hymn, there is a reference to Solomon. I could not understand it clearly. What of Solomon, do you think, could be symbolic of Mary?
