The Great Antiphons-- O Wisdom



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.

“O Wisdom coming forth from the mouth of the Most High God, Your lordship is over all that is, stretching from the beginning to the end, You who order all things with might and with sweetness, come teach us the path of prudence."

I've also started a series on the Antiphonae majores. The gregorian chants for them will be posted every day until Christmas Eve.

You are welcome, Victoria. The Great antiphons are very old but always new, just like Christmas.
