I invite you to walk through the “O Antiphons” this week as we lead up to the celebration of Christmas. Take a few minutes to read and meditate on today’s antiphon – below first in Latin and then in English – and to make it your prayer of the day.
Readings: Isaiah 11:1-16 / Revelation 22:16
O Radix Jesse,
qui stas in signum populorum,
super quem continebunt reges os suum,
quem gentes deprecabuntur:
veni ad liberandum nos,
jam noli tardare
O Root of Jesse,
standing as an ensign before the peoples,
before whom all kings are mute,
to whom the nations will do homage;
Come quickly to deliver us.
