Pray the O Antiphons with the Dominican Sisters of Peace

On Dec. 17, the church’s liturgy begins the “O” antiphons which are ancient refrains dating to the eighth century. Each day until Dec. 23, a different “O” antiphon is sung at Mass and in the church’s Evening Prayer. The antiphons weave biblical imagery from the Hebrew Scriptures into a lovely theological tapestry celebrating the messianic titles of Jesus and what they might mean — yesterday, today and tomorrow.

These messianic titles are respectively, O Sapientia (O Wisdom), O Adonai (O Lord/Leader), O Radix Jesse (O Root of Jesse), O Clavis David (O Key of David), O Oriens (O Radiant Dawn/Dayspring), O Rex Gentium (O King of the Nations), O Emmanuel (O God-With-Us).
