O Key of David
The following are points of Reverebd Mother Stuart's meditations on this O Antiphon:
He is key because in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead corporeally (Col 2:9) and He opens its treasures to us.
He is the key to all our questions. For those as to God's dealing with us, the answer to all is: Verbum caro factum est. For those as to our relations with God, "Jesus Christ and Him crucified"; in the Blessed Sacrament, the answer is Domine quid est? (Acts 10,4)
Key of authority-"I will lay the key of the house of David on His shoulders.
Who opens and no one shuts - His power of the keys gives us absolute security. "I have set before you an open door and none shall shut it," and again we are shut up in safety with Him in such security that none can open. … Enter into the chamber, shut the door.
