O Wisdom

The Great O Antiphon for December 17th

My-- soul | mágnifíes the Lord : *
  And my spirit has rejoiced in | Gód my Sávior.
For He has regarded the lowly state of | Hís maidsérvant : *
  For behold, henceforth all generations will | cáll me bléssed.
For He who is mighty has | dóne great thíngs for me : *
  And | hóly ís His name.
And His mercy is on | thóse who féar Him *
  From generation to | génerátion.
He-- has | shówn strength wíth His arm : *
  He has scattered the proud in the imagi- | nátion óf their hearts.
He has put down the | míghty fróm their thrones : *
  And ex- | álted the lówly.
He has filled the | húngry wíth good things : *
  And the rich He has | sént away émpty.
He has helped His servant Israel, In remembrance | óf His mércy : *
  As He spoke to our fathers, To Abraham and to his | séed foréver.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the | Hóly Spírit : *
As it was in the beginning is now and | éver sháll be : *
  World with- | óut end. Ámen.

Repeat Antiphon

I will try to keep up with this each day, and release a PDF on Christmas Eve for the full set.

So, you will find here a mix of theology, photography, geek speak, family news, and whatever else strikes my fancy. If you get confused, there are now categories…
