Terribilis est locus iste.
Hic domus Dei et porta coeli;
et vocabitur aula Dei.

How awesome is this place!
This is the house of God and the gate of heaven;
and it will be called the courtyard of God. 

(Genesis 28:17:22, Latin Gregorian chant introit to be sung at Mass today on the anniversary of the dedication of Saint John’s Abbey Church in 1961.)
