O Sapientia

December 17, 2014

Every year from December 17–23, the Church proclaims the O Antiphons, a set of chants that proclaim the mysteries of Christ in language adapted from the prophetic books of the Old Testament. Today, the series begins with O Sapientia: “O Wisdom (Eccl 24:5), you came forth from the mouth of the Most High (Sir 24:30), and reaching from beginning to end, you ordered all things mightily and sweetly (Wis 8:1). Come, and teach us the way of prudence (Isa 40:14)” (translation and Scriptural references from CatholicCulture.org). Below is a recording of this antiphon from the Dominican friars of Blackfriars Oxford: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6zaiZxJIpU
