O Sapientia! O Wisdom! Antiphonal Healing

Tonight, it begins; at Vespers, before the Magnificat, we take up the gorgeous “O”Antiphons. We chant them in full solemnity, with their wandering air, their voice of deep longing.

We have been wandering, and longing, for a long, long time; we seek an end to the journey, and the wanting.

As the whole nation is gripped in mourning and wondering what first to correct in ourselves, in our laws and our society, have we ever needed these powerful antiphons more than this week?

Tonight: O Sapientia! O Wisdom, you come forth from the mouth of the Most High. You fill the universe and hold all things together in a strong yet gentle manner: come to teach us the way of truth.

Come and teach us the way of prudence.
