Sing to the Lord

As I write this note it is one week until Christmas Eve.  We just turned on the candles in our convent windows, something we do each year as we begin to sing the "O Antiphons" on December 17.  These are prayers citing ancient names for the Lord.  Here is a link to the Antiphons on the Catholic Bishops' web site:

In the liturgy they are prayed as the Gospel Antiphon at Mass and the Magnificat Antiphon during Evening Prayer in the Liturgy of the Hours.  Try praying or chanting them yourself during these next days until Christmas Eve.  I guarantee they will touch your heart!
