Today, December 17th, marks the first day of the "O Antiphons". Each antiphon focuses on one of Christ's titles that were given to him in Biblical prophecy. The antiphon then calls the Messiah to come and fulfill the promise that was made through that prophecy. A new symbol will be released for every day of these "O Antiphons". You can read more about them here

 

Latin

O Sapientia, quae ex ore Altissimi prodiisti, attingens a fine usque ad finem, fortiter suaviterque disponens omnia: veni ad docendum nos viam prudentiae.

English

O Wisdom, coming forth from the mouth of the Most High, reaching from one end to the other, mightily and sweetly ordering all things: Come and teach us the way of prudence.

 

"And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord. And his delight shall be in the fear of the Lord." — Isaiah 11:2-3
