The Consoling Mystery of God-With-Us
by Sharon Holland, IHM -- LCWR President
As the last days of Advent move steadily on toward Christmas, the ancient O Antiphons enter our Evening Prayer expressing our longings and desires. As I reflected on them, I was aware that they could well be prayed in any season.
O Wisdom! Come, teach us the ways of truth. Show those who govern in church and in civil society what is good for the people. Come to Syria, Yemen, West Africa, and to countless unknown
O Adonai! Come, guide leaders in right ways; guide law makers and courts in the ways of justice. Come to our cities struggling with racial tensions and to our borders where refuge is sought. (To read this reflection in its entirety, download the newsletter below.)
