Forbidden Bible Verses will return in the New Year.

During the past two days, I have been reprising posts for the O Antiphons in the Octave to Christmas: December 17/18 and December 19.

The O Antiphons spell out SARCORE. These are an aide memoire, because, reversed, they spell out in Latin ero cras, which means

I shall be [with you] tomorrow.

The first two days focus on:

  1. O Sapientia, quae ex ore altissimi…” (O Wisdom from on high…)
  2. O Adonai et dux domus Israel…” (O Lord and leader of the house of Israel…)
  3. “O Radix Jesse qui stas in signum populorum…” (O Root of Jesse who stood as a standard of the people…)

The meditation for the fourth day is:

“O Clavis David et sceptrum domus…” (O Key of David and scepter of our home…)

An exposition of the relevant verses from Isaiah can be found in the following post:

The O Antiphon for December 20

More will follow during the next few days.
