The O Antiphons: The Seven and The Marian

This one is for me a new discovery. It is very mysterious and very beautiful and whilst usually used on December 23rd, I’m striking out and offering this prayer for the 24th.

“O Virgo virginum, quomodo fiet istud? Quia nec primam similem visa es nec habere sequentem. Filiae Ierusalem, quid me admiramini? Divinum est mysterium hoc quod cernitis.”


O Virgin of virgins, how shall this be?

For neither before thee was any like unto thee,

nor after shall there be.

Daughters of Jerusalem, why do you marvel at me?

What you behold is a divine mystery!
