Our O Antiphons have taken us on a journey. We have traveled a great deal with Isaiah these past days and now our O Antiphons have spelled out a message for us. By taking the first letter from each of the Latin titles of the antiphons, we arrive at the words ero cras, which translated means "Tomorrow, I will come."
This message brings both our Advent and our O Antiphons to their promised fulfillment: the feast of the Nativity of Our Lord.
Admist the business of the day, try to take even a few moments to sit and quietly reflect on this great mystery: God who created the world and all that it holds took on the flesh of our humanity in order to redeem us. Yes, Christmas is an awesome time. Not because of the tinsel and the presents, but because God became a tiny, helpless baby because He loved us so much!
