“O Antiphons”

December 17 marks the beginning of the ‘O Antiphons’ at evening prayer:

O Wisdom, you come forth from the mouth of the Most High. You fill the universe and hold all things together in a strong yet gentle manner.

O come to teach us the way of truth.

Universalis comments:

The light of Christmas begins to blot out the lights of the individual days, as planets are blotted out when they appear too close to the Sun.

The O Antiphons count down the last seven days before Christmas.

Bringing with them, hope, longing and sound, transformative teaching.

Amen.
