The "O" Antiphons of Late Advent
December 17-23 in our faith tradition is Late Advent. At evening prayer each night the church prays the "O Antiphons"--passages from the Old Testament whose biblical imagery embodies messianic hopes.
The Roman Church has been praying these passages since at least the 8th century: "O Wisdom...", "O Emmanuel...", "O Key of David...", etc. They also form the basis for our Christmas song "O Come, O Come Emmanuel".
