THE ‘O’ANTIPHONS

Beginning on the 17 December of each Advent season and for the next seven days, a special antiphon is read before the Magnificat during Evening Prayer. These special antiphons express humanity’s desire and longing for God, a longing which has existed throughout the history of God’s people, from the beginning of time through Abraham, Moses and David, and fulfilled on the night when Emmanuel (God with us) was born. Each prayer begins with one of the seven titles attributed to Jesus’ Old Testament title for the Messiah and they are a wonderful prayer resource to help us in our Advent preparations.
