 O’pus Ma’jus.Opus Opera’tum, 
E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.
Opus Op’eran’tis,
in theology, means that the personal piety of the person who does the act, and not the act itself, causes it to be an instrument of grace. Thus, in the Eucharist, it is the faith of the recipient which makes it efficient for grace.   1
