Saturday of the Third Week in Advent
Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word
Genesis 49:2, 8-10
Psalm 72:1-2, 3-4ab, 7-8, 17
A reflection on today's Sacred Scripture:
We have reached a momentous time in our Advent journey, as we, with our beloved Church, draw ever-nearer to the Solemnity of the Birth of Jesus
Significant of this time, is the introduction of the seven "O Antiphons" which will be read on their sequentially appointed day at the Alleluia Verse proceeding the Gospel and at Evening Prayer before the the Canticle of Mary.
Like the big round "O" that begins each of them, let our mouths and hearts be animated with words of wonder and awe!
Full of joy and expectation this day; we pray:
"O Wisdom of our God Most High,
guiding creation with power and love:
come to teach us the path of knowledge!"
