Aspice, infami Deus ipse ligno. [Passiontide.] In the Appendix to the Roman Breviary, Bologna, 1827, it is the Hymn at Matins for the Feast of the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ, to be observed on the Tuesday after Sexagesima Sunday. It is now adopted for use in England on the Friday after Sexagesima Sunday; by the Benedictine Order on Tuesday. See Aspice ut Verbum Patris.
[Rev. W. A. Shoults, B.D.]
