O Antiphons, December 22

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 22
Readings: Zechariah 9:9-10 / 1 Peter 2:4-6

O Rex Gentium,
et desideratus earum,
lapisque angularis,
qui facis utraque unum:
veni, et salva hominem,
quem de limo formasti.

O King of nations,
the ruler they long for,
the cornerstone uniting all people:
Come and save us all,
whom you formed out of clay.
