Video: O Antiphon for the 23rd of December
Published by Dominican Nuns Ireland in Videos · 23 December 2019
A short clip of our community singing the O Antiphon for the 23rd of December (the Dominican version).
O Immanuel ...
The time of waiting is coming to an end. Soon the mystery of the Incarnation will be re-enacted once more in our liturgical celebrations and especially in our hearts.
For the past few weeks the cry "Maranatha - Come Lord Jesus" has been our spoken and unspoken prayer. But there is another side to this longing desire. While looking for a quotation in my bible I chanced to open Chapter 2 in the Song of Songs, where the Bridegroom speaks to his Bride: "Come my lovely one, come."
It came home to me very forcibly - not only am I pleading with Jesus to come but far more earnestly is he saying to me:
"Come then my love, my lovely one come,
Show me your face,
Let me hear your voice"
Two hearts were meeting and held momentarily in stillness.
There are no reviews yet.
