O Emmanuel, our King...."

 The O Antiphon for today is:

"O Emmanuel, our King and Giver of Law: come to save us, Lord our God!"

And we sing: "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel!

O come, O come, Emmanuel, and ransom captive Israel, that morns in lonely exile here until the Son of God appear.

Refrain: Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, thou Wisdom from on high, and order all things far and nigh;

to us the path of knowledge show, and teach us in her ways to go. Refrain.

O come, thou holy Lord of might, who to thy tribes on Sinai's height

in ancient times did give the law, in cloud and majesty and awe. Refrain.

I do not use Facebook, but this is about Bill Barry, SJ who died and is worth reading.
