That's "This is my body" in Aramaic ... which is being kept alive in Maronite congregations in Minnesota. Fascinating article. (Hat tip to Amy)

There probably are a good number of Maronite communities that use that particular option for the language. Our Lady's Maronite Catholic Church in Austin has used it before- I go to that parish less often than a blue moon, but I've heard it there before for parts of the Eucharistic Prayer.

Merry Christmas!
