Fourth Week of Advent







Announcing the Incarnation

The excitement of the coming birth is the theme of Scripture during this final week of preparation for celebrating the Lord's coming in Bethlehem, in the here-and-now and at time's end.  


People standing before the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, an ocean or a sky full of stars are struck with awe. 

 Creation is so big and we are so little! 

 This week we enter the aura of Christmas, an event so grand we are filled with wonder. 

 How much God loves each of us, how amazing that the
Lord of creation would become human so that we might be saved.

What else can we do but sing praise?


On the seven days before Christmas Eve, glorious names of the Messiah of proclaimed in the O Antiphones


O Wisdom

O Sacred Lord of Ancient Israel

 O Flower of Jesse's Stem,

O Key of David,

O Radiant Dawn,

O King of Nations,

O Emmanuel)
