Today the "O Antiphons" begin at Vespers. The antiphon for today is "O Sapientia." Don Marco has a beautiful meditation on the meaning of true wisdom. Share

The Os actually start on Dec. 17, but in the old English usage they started on Dec. 16 and added on Dec. 23 "O Virgin of virgins."

Yes, and Dom Gueranger mentions the two other antiphons, "O Gabriel" and "O Jerusalem" that were used occasionally in the Middle Ages.
