I couldn't quite translate it all, but it looked like something about "Justice" maybe and "In gods hands" or "hand", though I'm not 100% if I caught it right. Anyone notice it as they were panning around Christabella standing on the balcony?

Domine Deus Omnipotens Cuius ________. I've forgotten the last word of it. Any translators?

Thought one of the words was Manos or Mano (which in spanish would be hand). I could have been mistaken.

I know deus means "god." None of those other words are showing up on Latin-English dictionaries, though.

My bestfriend, Jack who saw it with me yesterday remembers it from part of something in the 11th or 10th century that references David and Goliath, the Pharoah and Moses, Philistines/Israel, Amalech/Moses. He says that it was basically something like a prayer to God to bless that person/peoples with the strength to conquer over their adversaries.
Thank you crazy, art historian friend.

I think the next word was manus . I don't know the rest of it, but that reads something like:

"All-powerful lord god, (by?) your hand..."

It would really help to have a good pic of that prayer, but I haven't seen any.

Yeah. It's manus. Thank you. I know the rest of it's correct.

Someone go to the site and look. It's in the alternate media section.

This is what my friend was referring to:

Domine Deus Omnipotens, Rex regum et Dominus dominantium, in cuius manu omnis victoria consistit et omne bellum conteritur, concede mihi ut tua manus cor meum corroboret ut in virtute tua in manibus viribusque meis bene pugnare viriliterque agere valeam ut inimici mei in conspectu meo cadent et corruant sicut corruit Golias ante faciem pueri tui David, et sicut populus Pharaonis coram Moysi in mare rubro, et sicut Philistini coram populo Israel cecidi1 sunt, et Amalech coram Moysi et Chananei coram Iesu corruerunt, sic cadant inimici mei sub pedibus meis, et per viam unam conveniant adversum me et per septem fugiant a me; et conteret Deus arma eorum et confringet framea eorum, et liquescent in conspectu meo sicut cera a facie ignis ut sciant omnes populi terrae quia invocatum est nomen Domini nostri Iesu Christi super me et magnificetur nomen tuum Domine, in adversariis meis, Domine Deus Israel.

Oh Lord, God Almighty, King of kings, Lord of rulers, in whose hand all victory rests and all war is destroyed, grant me that Thy hand may strengthen my heart so I may fight well and act courageously so my enemies may fall before my sight. May they fall as did Goliath fall before Thy servant David, as did the people of the Pharaoh in the Red Sea before Moses, as did the Philistines before the people of Israel, as did Amalech before Moses, and as did the Canaanites before Joshua, so may my enemies fall beneath my feet. May all who come against me be dispersed and God destroy their weapons and shatter their swords. They will melt in my sight as wax in the face of fire so all the peoples of the earth will know that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ has been invoked over me. May Thy Name, O Lord, be made great over my adversaries, O Lord, God of Israel.

Yeah. I saw the rest of the phrase in the church and its a part of the first sentance there.
Domine Deus Omnipotens in cuius manu omnis victoria constistit.
Lord god almighty, in whose hand all victory rests.
