Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

The 'O Antiphons', Day #2: O Adonai

Today is the second day and my second invitation to you to pray the O Antiphons with the Benedictine Sisters of Erie.

Today we pray, "O Adonai".

Here is a meditation by Sr. Joan Chittister, OSB

December 18

When we build a vision of life it is
necessary to realize that Jesus
must be the center of it—not our
institutions, good as they may be;
not our plans or personal talents,
necessary as they are.
— Joan D. Chittister, OSB


O Adonai, leader of the ancient
Israel, giving Moses, while in the
burning bush, the law on Sinai.
Come with outstretched arms and
teach us.

You may wish to chant the prayer with the sisters here.
