Christmas 2019 01. Antiphons


Day 1. The O Antiphons

In some parts of the church they use as part of their Christmas worship, these seven O antiphons in use. Each of them addresses Jesus Christ using a Messianic title drawn from Old Testament prophecy. Read backwards, the initials of each title in Latin form the words “Ero Cras” or "Tomorrow I shall be (with you)" – looking forward to the return of Jesus Christ.

The seven antiphons are:
Sapientia - Wisdom
Adonai - Holy Lord
Radix Jesse - Root of Jesse
Clavis David - Key of David
Oriens - Morning Star
Rex Gentium - King of the Nations
Emmanuel - God-with-us
