O Anthphons

O King – 22nd December

鈥淥 King,whom all the peoples desire,you are the cornerstone which makes all one.O come, and save manwhom you made from clay.鈥滻n today鈥檚 antiphon we address Christ as 鈥淜ing鈥 the desire of 鈥渁ll the peoples.鈥 Reflecting on this Antiphon, I wonder to what extent Christ is truly 鈥渒ing鈥  in my life. Is he 鈥渢he cornerstone鈥 of all I do and say?Do my thoughts and decisions take account of his will for me at this moment, even if only by, as Frank Duff advises, glancing towards him and asking internally 鈥渨hat do you want me to do?鈥 before making decisions.This kingship in an individual鈥檚 life is very important because we are all members of the mystical body of Christ. Just as the holiness of one member benefits other members and the whole Church (CCC 1474-5), so also Christ鈥檚 kingship in my life is of benefit to and helps the growth of […]

O key of David – 20th December 2015

O key of David and sceptre of Israel, what you open no else can close again; what you close no one can open. O come to lead the captive from prison; free those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death.Jesus in his own body has opened the door to salvation. He is the door. He is the way into the Kingdom, into the very heart of the Trinity. 鈥淚 am the door ; if anyone enters through Me , he will be saved.鈥滻t would be difficult to reflect upon this antiphon this advent, without making a connection to the Jubilee Year and the significance of the Holy Door of Mercy being opened in every diocese in the world. Pope Francis in various homilies has this to say: 鈥淎s Christians we are called to cross the threshold of the door of mercy. We are asked to welcome […]

O Radix Jesse – 19th December 2015

 鈥淥 Root of Jessewho stand for a sign for the people;before whom kings are silent;whom the nations bessech:Come to deliver us, no longer delay.鈥  Jesse was the father of David and JESUS is the Son of David.When Jesus was on His missionary travels and one day came to Jericho, a blind man 鈥 who heard that is was Jesus, the great healer 鈥 called out, 鈥淪on of David, have pity on me!鈥 (cf Mk 10:46ff)Jesus called him, and restored his sight immediately.There are a few other Gospel passages where people looking for healing call out to Him as 鈥淪on of David.鈥滸od鈥檚 promise to David was that his descendants would occupy the throne till the Promised One would come.  The angel Gabriel said to Mary, 鈥淭he Lord God will give Him the throne of His ancestor, David.鈥 (Lk 1:32)     In the antiphon we hear: 鈥溾 before whom kings […]

O Antiphons – O Wisdom – 17th December 2105

Today we start our traditional Novena before Christmas with the鈥 Great O Antiphons鈥. May this prayer help us to enter into the wide opened Door of God鈥檚 Mercy, and to be real witnesses of God鈥檚 presence among us, not only by the preaching of the glad things of His coming but above all by revealing Him in our lives.                                 O SAPIENTIAO Wisdom you come fort from the mouth of the Most High, You fill the universe and hold all things together in a strong yet gentle manner. O comes to teach us the way of truth. Maranatha. Come, Lord Jesus come. O Wisdom My previous relation with Wisdom was always cold and very weak. It mostly meant for me something very high, big, and far away – not useful for ordinary daily life or prayer. But preparing this reflection she placed her arms on me, and I heard her […]
