Icon: Jesus Light of the World

Today is the 5th Golden Night of Advent in the Latin Church; where we focus more closely on the coming of our Lord. During Vespers, the O antiphons are said. Each day for 7 days, we invoke Christ using his Old Testament titles. Today during Vespers we will call him by “O Dawn” or in Latin “O Oriens” That’s said along with the magnificat.

The O antiphon said today is:

In Latin:
O Oriens, splendor lucis aeternae, et sol iustitiae: veni, et illumina sedentes in tenebris et umbra mortis.

Malachi 4:2 CPDV[…]
