Wise up! It’s time for the Great O Antiphons

My colleague in the Diocese of Rhode Island priest (and MA resident, like me), John Alexander, has the scoop on the Great O Antiphons. Depending on whether you follow medieval English use or Romish customs, today or tomorrow begins the Great O Antiphons. You can read all about it on his blog, to which you should also subscribe. (He often has good posts on the sanctoral calendar.)

Wishing to avoid controversy, I have decided to post my entry on the O Antiphons now, after sunset on December 16. You Romish readers can think I’ve celebrating the vigil of O Sapientia. You Sarum subscribers can delight in my post on this, the first day of the the Great O Antiphons.

Either way, I hope you’ll celebrate these final days of Advent with holiness, awe, joy, and hope.
