O Antiphons!

It's time to chant the O Antiphons!

This year, I'm especially grateful this tradition is shared by Christians without denominational squabbling (e.g., "We started it!" "We enhanced it!).

And once again, the practice of lectio divina will be how I get into and stay with these passages on my journey to the manger. Meet you there next week. Amen?
