O Antiphons, December 20

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.

December 20
Readings: Isaiah 22:15-25 / Matthew 16:13-20

O Clavis David,
et sceptrum domus Israël,
qui aperis, et nemo claudit,
claudis, et nemo aperuit:
veni, et educ vinctum
de domo carceris,
sedentem in tenebris,
et umbra mortis.

O Key of David and scepter of the house of Israel,
you open and no one can close,
you close and no one can open:
Come and rescue the prisoners
who are in darkness and the shadow of death.
