Advent Reflection: O Time! Time for the O Antiphons

If you have been following the Advent conversations which San Antonio Auxiliary Bishop Oscar Cantú and I have been having on Prepare The Way, my weekly TV show, you will have heard us speak about the prayerful recitation of the O Antiphons held between December 17 – 23, as we recall the names given to Jesus Christ our Lord by the prophets.

These names reveal attributes of God and call to mind His action on our behalf.  They highlight the awesomeness of this God of ours, who wishes to become the God and Father of every human being that walks this planet at this time and for years and centuries to come.

The O Antiphons will aid your prayer during this last lap of the Advent Season as you prepare  the way of the Lord in your heart and home: they will help you deepen your understanding of and gratitude for the Triune God, and help your evangelistic intercessory prayer as you pray that others come to know the Wisdom of God, the Key of David, the Ruler and Rising Star, Emmanuel.

The O Antiphons can be found on various websites, like here or here.

Be sure to visit my web page for additional Advent and Christmas resources, for various evangelization resources, and to view Prepare The Way and my Advent and Christmas Season guests, Bishop Oscar Cantú; the Archbishop of San Antonio Gustavo García-Siller; and Fr. George Montague, SM.
