Dec. 17, 2016 (“O Antiphons”)

“O Wisdom, O Holy Word of God, You govern all creation with Your strong yet tender care. Come and show Your people the way to salvation.” ” O Antiphons” are the Magnificat Antiphons at Vespers for the last 7 days of Advent (they are also the Alleluia Verses at daily mass). They are called “O Antiphons” because they begin with the interjection,”O.” They are based on Messianic prophesies from Isaiah and form the basis for the verses of “O, Come, O Come Emmanuel.”
