O Dayspring

Yesterday during Vespers the Church sang the traditional great ‘O Antiphon’: 'O Dayspring,’ which calls for Christ, who is the Light to come. Below, Mother Maria-Michael offers a meditation on this beautiful antiphon.

O Oriens, O Dayspring
Light of truth.
Light of Divine grace.
Light of life.
Light of the world.
He who is wrapped in light as in a robe.
Light of glory.
Light of faith.
Light Divine.
There shall arise for you the sun of justice with its healing rays.
Come and save us. Bring to light what is hidden in darkness, that the shadows of death may flee and give way to the brightness of your everlasting presence deep within us.
