O Root of Jesse

O Root of Jesse's stem, sign of God's love for all his people:
come to save us without delay.

Mother Stuart: "From His Nativity to the Cross and through all ages in the Blessed a sign which shall be contradicted and yet... the end, and the sign which is contradicted is the sign of victory. "this sign shall be in heaven." The last word is always His and the eyes of all wait and hope in Him...
Veni...jam noli tardare. His own words are: Ecce venio cito though it tarry, wait for it, for it will surely come. He looks for a spirit of longing desire and expectancy.

I hope my sharing of Mother Stuart's points of meditation is helpful; I am not copying all the Latin phrases as she was using the O Antiphons in Latin.
I am copying the O Antiphons used in the Liturgy today and this will allow you to make your own points of meditation.
