"O" Antiphons for Advent: "O Oriens" (O Morning Star) Saturday 21th

"The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. Upon those who dwelt in the land of gloom a light has shone".  (Isaiah: 9:1)


A very appropriate text for this time of year! I feel that I am dwelling in the land of gloom at the moment. Day after day of overcast weather with the very occasional glimpse of the sun. It is no wonder that so many people through history have celebrated the turning of the year with lights and fire.
Yes we have gloomy weather at the moment.
Bit all the Christmas lights remind us warm our hearts.
