O Emmanuel

"O Emmanuel, our King and Law-giver, desired of the nations and their salvation, come and save us, Lord our God".

(cf Isaiah 7:14)


– the Magnificat antiphon for 23 December. My sermon for today, the 4th Sunday of Advent, which considers the mystery of Emmanuel, God-with-us, can be read here.
