Wondrous Words Wednesday


Wondrous Words Wednesday

My words this week are taken from the ebook The Priest And The Peaches.

1. predieu- prayer kneelers that are used for worship in many churches.

2. catafalque- is a raised bier, soapbox or similar platform often movable, that is used to support the casket, coffin or body of the deceased during a funeral.

  2. Predieu makes sense since Dieu is God in French. I might have been able to figure that one out. Thanks for playing along!!

  7. Both new to me -- and I'm usually good with church words, although I do better with what things are called in Protestant buildings.

  9. Two interesting words indeed. As Kathy said dieu is God in french so predieu looks literally like "before God"- which is an excellent name for the kneeling device.
