O Wisdom

Today, we begin a week of reflecting on Christ's coming in a deeper way with His many titles from the Old Testament. Each morning a new title is placed in the "O Antiphon" wreath that hangs in a central corridor of the monastery; and Each evening we chant the praises of His name in the O Antiphon to the Magnifcat Canticle.

O Wisdom of God,
Who came forth from the mouth of the Most High,
reaching from beginning to end,
and with great power yet gentleness
you set all creation in order:
O Come, come Lord
and teach us the way of Wisdom!
