Just as we hit the middle of Advent, something special occurs starting on December 17 and goes for the next seven days. The O Antiphons! I have created 7 shareable images, one to share for each O Antiphon.
Below is a little background on this tradition:
The O Antiphons refer to the seven antiphons that are prayed immediately before the Magnificat during Vespers of the Liturgy of the Hours (or the Divine Office). Each antiphon begins with the exclamation “O”, thus earning their popular name of the “O Antiphons.” Originally written in Latin around the seventh or eighth centuries, these special antiphons are verses extracted from the Old Testament prophet Isaiah that are titles for the Messiah.
These seven names or titles are:
Dec. 17 - O’ Sapientia (meaning O Wisdom), from Isaiah 11:2-3.
Dec. 18 - O’ Adonai (O Leader/Ruler), Isaiah 11:4-5 and 33:22.
Dec. 19 - O’ Radix (O Root of Jesse), Isaiah 11:1.
Dec. 20 - O’ Clavis (O Key of David), Isaiah 22:22.
Dec. 21 - O’ Oriens (O Radiant Dawn), Isaiah 9:1.
Dec. 22- O’ Rex Gentium (O King of the Nations), Isaiah 2:4.
Dec. 23- - O’ Emmanuel (O God with Us), Isaiah 7:14.
